In hen-planning hell? Don’t get your feathers in a twist. Throwing a bride-to-be bash that isn’t brash is easier than you’d think.
A cool crop of Irish companies catering for fashionably-themed get-togethers have saved us all the blushes and embarrassment of L-plates, cowboy hats and feather boas. Let the grown-up games begin!
THE PEACOCK BRIDE: For party accessories and novelty goods with a twist. From unicorn piñatas to a 1920s feather headdress and metallic wings, this is fun and the right side of frivolous Info: www.thepeacockbride.com.
Theme: Create your own girl gang with a bespoke theme: boho, floral, gothic, take your pick.
Colour scheme: Theme too restrictive? Keep the whimsy without all the work by opting instead for a colour scheme. Black and white? 50 Shades of Grey? We’ll let you decide!
Accessories : Give the bride tribe a lasting momento like personalised charms or friendship bracelets. Try Etsy.com for inspo!
