Vintage Is All the Rage, Plan a Vintage Hen Party
Naturally, vintage is nothing new, but as a theme, it seems to be quite popular these days. It is commonly used as a theme for parties, weddings, and even hen parties. Now, if you want to have an elegant or posh hen party, plan a vintage themed hen party.
If you do not know how to get started, here are some tips to get you started. Of course, the planning process will include dressing up in vintage clothing, choosing suitable hen party activities, and setting up the perfect venue.
Dress to Kill!
It is not really so surprising that vintage clothing made a comeback after famous celebrities and models chose to start wearing such clothing. This will include Julia Roberts, Tatiana Sorokko, Renee Zellweger, Kate Moss, and more.
What is vintage clothing? Clothes that have existed before 1920 are considered antique clothing and everything from the 1920s up to the last decade are considered vintage clothing. This means that all you have to do is pick an era for your vintage hen party.
Choose an era and stick with that. You can go for a 20s, 40s, 60s, or any other era in between. Make sure that the clothes your “look” will match that particular era. That will include accessories, hair and makeup as well. This also works for vintage themed stag dos.
The Right Hen Activities
Your vintage inspired hen do should also include the right activities to make it feel more authentic. Though you can always choose to have a posh tea party, cook together, or have a cocktail party, there are other fun hen party activities that you can include.
How about learning new dance moves that will be appropriate for that era? Burlesque regained its popularity from the 1930s up to the 1960s. You and your girlfriends can have a lot of laughs and enjoy learning the moves of this risqué dance.
For certified shopaholics, a day shopping for vintage clothing can also be a fun hen activity. Get a professional fashion consultant’s opinion while you’re at it. You can then get a full vintage makeover with cosmetics to boot!
A Stylish and Elegant Venue
The Ritz will definitely be one of the best venues for a vintage hen do. However, you should not limit your options to that. There are other venues that can be perfect for any vintage wedding or hen do.
The Foundling Museum located in Brunswick Square can also be the perfect venue for your vintage themed hen night. You can have an intimate lunch or dinner for 30 in its stylish, beautiful, and elegant Court Room.
Aside from the Ritz, the Savoy is another hotel that can be the perfect venue for your hen do. Its Art Deco design will definitely go well with your vintage theme.
If none of those venues appeal to you, you can always turn any room into the perfect venue for your vintage hen party with the right vintage decorations. So, start planning and have a vintage hen weekend or hen night to remember!
