Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place! I just wanted to get some advice in regards to hen parties. I am the bride to be and have 5 bridesmaids. One of which lives in Australia. Alot of my Australian family are flying over 9 days before the wedding and I would love them to be part of the hen. This would mean it would take place on the weekend before the wedding. I am not a heavy drinker and am a school teacher so will have the week between the hen and the wedding off (as its the summer holidays). I just wanted to see if other people had also had a hen so close or whether it was madness in terms of recovery! Any advice welcome!
