Hen parties were invented for the girls to get away from the lads for a last weekend of fun, flirting and frivolity before committing to your soul mate.
Free Fall Flight Simulator
The first free fall flight simulator in Europe is based in Riga, Latvia. A freefall flight simulator uses vertical air currents to simulate the feel of a sky dive but with none of the dangers. You will be welcomed by your rather handsome hosts and be given a short induction course. Just some simple guidelines about whats going to happen to you in the simulator and how to control your body ! Enter the simulator and the fans are turned on. Magically you float.
Llama trekking is a fascinating choice. There are currently seven Llama trekking centres located in the UK. Llamas are not the same as camels - they do not spit. This is a great way to see the surrounding countryside. The panniers are loaded with goodies (and of course champagne) and then you mount up and set off on a guided tour. It is of course obligatory to stop and picnic.
There are various punting centres around Ireland and the UK. The punts are of course chauffer driven. These are very friendly guys that guide you safely along the rivers.
Each punt seats four girls. As these are specialised tours there is a picnic packed and stowed on board. The picnics have a range of menus and prices. The chauffeur punts off to a predetermined picnic spot on the river bank. What bliss, a handsome chauffeur, a custom designed picnic and the river.
Flirting and Classes
Flirting classes are a recent innovation. They are normally held in a private meeting room of a hotel. You will be met by an interesting team who will lead you through a series of hilarious ideas for seducing your man.
White Water Rafting
This is not for the fainthearted. What a thrill cascading down a river in a rubber raft with your girlfriends and of course the crew ready to save you should the worst happen. When you reach the end there are refreshments with perhaps just a little cocktail !
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...

The Gold Vine is a light and flexible headpiece that can be worn to the side, back or across the top of the head. It is simply attached with tiny alligator style clips hidden beneath the piece.

You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
