My how-to for a HensI Love / The Edit / What I Wore categories: I Love The Edit What I Wore
Planning your own hens or organising something for a fun loving gal? Here is my guide to mixing activities, fashion and fun for a par-tay to remember.
My hens weekend was jam-packed to say the least! All the activities involved the things I love – sunshine, pampering, exercise and eating with good company.
This is what went down… We stayed at the QT hotel on Friday night. I had dinner with my bridesmaids at the QT in the morning.
We jumped out of bed on Saturday morning for an hour-long workout. Retro Sweat was hilarious. The authentic 1980s freestyle aerobic workout was certainly a different way to get the party started. We kitted ourselves up in the freshest retro gear to sweat it out.
It was then back to the QT hotel to doll ourselves up. Our fabulous hair and makeup team (Lily & Co) were waiting to work their magic. Feeling fabulous and ready to go, we went for lunch at Lucio’s. It was a ‘La dolce vita’ theme which had us all feeling like we were sipping Aperol’s in Italy. The flowers were styled by the divine Kashaya & Co and we all got super amazing goodie bags.
There was even an accordion player to add to the Italian vibes. Following on from the food, drinks and giggles – it was time to head out. We boarded a party bus that took us to karaoke in the city. We sang into the night and busted out some great tunes.
I had breakfast with my gorgeous bridesmaids at the Grounds in the City. After a caffeine hit and some tasty food, it was time to head off again. Next up, we went on a boat ride in Sydney Harbour with a few of my nearest and dearest girlfriends.
It wouldn’t have been a complete weekend of wining and dining without some of Judesfood. An incredible weekend was topped with dinner with the fam at my parents place. I had the best time and couldn’t have enjoyed my hens weekend with a better bunch of friends.
So once you’ve got your activities sorted, it is time to decide what to wear! If you looking for the perfect hens outfit. Here is my advice:
- Colour, colour is all you need baby
I wore this bright Rachel Gilbert ensemble and was styled by the incredible Lana Wilkinson. It was all about the colour for me.
