Weddingnesday… my cocktaily, burlesquey, bunting-y, sparkly, giggly hen weekend

1 Jun

This is me… around gosh knows what time
on the Saturday night of my hen weekend.

By this point, I’ve had a family do on the Friday with my besties,
aunts and cousins where we drank tea cocktails,
ate cake and learned to read tea leaves.

There may have been a lot of giggling there too.

On the Saturday, I had a burlesque lesson with friends…
(The drinking of cola wasn’t actually essential
to the lesson… but it was thirsty work!)

… then we all checked into design porn hotel Citizen M.

(Don’t you just love the bunny in my room?!)

This was followed by a dinner of extremely yummy dim sum,
lots of lovely Hendricks, and then off to Club Noir‘s American Dream night…

Which explains why I am dressed as the Statue of Liberty.

(For the observant, yes I am sitting on a stool
shaped like an elephant!)

(My other half actually made me my headpiece and a real torch…
look at it glowing in the dark! He is one crafty fellow my future husband!)

Anyway, here’s a few more of my favourite hen do pics…

Oh yes, it’s me wearing a sash… and look it has cake on it!

(My maid of honour actually had a different sash for me for
everything we did so I was very co-ordinated! She knows me well!)

 My little sis made me lyric bunting and homemade
fortune cookies… how cool is that?

This me and my family gals… I love this picture so much…

Skipping ahead to Saturday… around 3am on Saturday when the last
of us got back to Citizen M we decided to occupy this sculptural sofa…

Honestly it’s the comfiest thing ever.

I would sit on it everyday if I could…
god knows where I would put it though…

And as for the rest… well, a lady never tells!

Thanks to all my hens for an amazing weekend.

If the wedding is half as fun, then
we’re set to have a brilliant day!
