On the 11th August it is my older sister's hen do (or bachelorette party to my US buddies!). I have only ever helped organise one hen do and the bride was quite limited on things she could do because she was 8 months pregnant. Still fun though!
This time the bride to be is not pregnant (I hope!) but very picky! Her best friend Carly is the main organiser and she has done a wonderful job so far. Nicola has always been a fan of the races! We have an annual big race day down in the south called Ascot and trust me before Nicola became a Mum she was down at Ascot on ladies day all dulled up!
So this year we are going to the races where we are having a picnic, putting on a few bets and getting all dressed up. The only thing Carly is having trouble with is entertainment for the day like games etc. It is quite a challenge because we will be in a field in the middle of a race track. One of my ideas was to ask Robbie (her fiancé) some questions on a video and Nicola has to guess the answers. We are still thinking of doing that but without the video input as we will have no electricity and I am not taking a laptop with me where there'll be 2000 other people!
Carly and Nicola - Best friends.
So does anyone have any ideas of games/entertainment we could have on the day? Baring in mind our location. For any of my married/engaged friends what did you have at your hen do?
It would be most appreciated.
