Congratulations, you’ve been chosen as maid of honor to the bride to be, and with that prestigious title comes the scary task of planning the perfect bachelorette bash. Although this power can be alluring, you must put yourself in your bride’s shoes and think: what would the bride like to do?
Does she love to dance, is she a bit of a foodie, or would she like to head straight for the cocktails? Or maybe, she’d prefer to keep things low key, which doesn’t mean things have to be dull. You’ve already chosen the location, so you’re halfway there, and you’ll find plenty of fun things to do in London, whatever your bride’s interests. It’s a big task, but here are some helpful suggestions to help you on your way to planning the perfect bachelorette party in London.
Why not kick-start the day with a spot of bottomless Prosecco brunch? Nothing says ‘last day of freedom’ like unlimited bubbles and delicious food to get the fruity vibes flowing. This new take on brunch is becoming more and more popular by the glassful, so remember to book early, especially if you’re a big party, as tables tend to book up quickly in all areas over London.
With the bulk of the afternoon still brimming with opportunities, why not fill your time with an activity that allows you to explore this fantastic city? This can be anything from life drawing, a brain-teasing escape room, a competitivity ping pong tournament or an exciting sightseeing tour. Cruise along the River Thames, enjoy afternoon tea on a vintage bus or enjoy cocktails in Soho. Just make sure it’s an activity that the whole party can get involved in and experience together.
When in London, end your night with dinner and a show. Head to Covent Garden and soak up the buzz of the bustling city. Here you’ll find street performers, souvenir shops, bars and plenty of restaurants, from fine dining to chains and outlets to grab a quick bite to eat. To experience the fun and frolics of the theater, head to the Adelphi Theater for Broadway’s high-heeled hit, Kinky Boots. The show follows a young Charlie Price and his eccentric plan of making ladies’ shoes for men to ultimately save his family’s struggling shoe factory. With a little help from Lola, a fabulous drag queen, they make an unlikely pair. You’ll enjoy a whirlwind of a show full of laughs, drama, and dancing – the perfect end to a memorable day spent with the girls.
A key thing to remember when planning a bachelorette party is to make it memorable. Be organized, but leave a little leeway for unexpected occurrences, which, to be honest, are likely to happen when navigating a big group around London. But, at this exciting time of the bride’s life, the most important thing to remember is to have fun!
