We all know Bridezilla’s – But are you a budding Henzilla?
Categories: Hen Party Advice
For a long time now we all know there’s been a very specific type of woman walking the Earth, those which seem completely normal at first, but then only a few moments after they have uttered said ‘yes’ to the man kneeling eagerly in front of them, their eyes widen, nostrils flare up and they become what we all know today as a ‘Bridezilla’.
It’s a well-known fact that David Attenborough once described Bridezilla’s as ‘the most fearsome and panic-inducing human beings of the land’ while observing one before a wedding, however more and more here at Hen Heaven, we are finding out about a much earlier incarnation of the fully-fledged Bridezilla appearing at Glasgow hen weekends all the way down the country to those on the south coast… the dreaded Henzilla.
You might have already been worrying about turning into a Bridezilla and have been taking every precaution possible to avoid it, but without knowing are you already taking the over planning of your hen night and making your maid of honour feel like she’s walking on eggshells around you? It’s easier to happen than you might think, as your hen do will be one of the biggest nights or weekends of your life… and of course it’s only going to come around once. But fear not, text your friends and tell them to pack away their tranquilizer guns and relax, because below are some tips to help you make sure your hen weekend runs smoothly from the offset.
Lay down the Law… RIGHT AWAY!
I admit, this already sounds like I’m trying to turn you into a Henzilla – but this is all about timing. No one likes a hen that’s screaming ‘why the hell did you invite her’ down the phone a single night before the party, but they will completely understand one that gives out the guidelines well before everything is even arranged. This will avoid any unwanted surprises and weed out those ‘acquaintances’ that you would rather not be there. So consider:
• The hen party ideas you like/don’t like the thought of.
• Anyone you definitely DON’T want to come.
• Fancy dress – Yes, no… do you suit a feather boa?
• Desintation: What places do you like the sound of?
• When you want it to be arranged for.
Leave it at that
You’ve said your part, gave out the rules and laid down the law, so there should be absolutely no need to send daily text updates about ‘new thoughts’. Leave it in the hands of your trusted friends.
This sounds simple but as it’s your hen night, it can be hard to actually enjoy it all without preoccupying yourself by constantly thinking ‘is this good?’, ‘will tonight be remembered?’, ‘how do I look in these photos’ and ‘is that David Attenborough watching us from over there?’ Just let what your friends have planned for you through the night and enjoy it for all its worth… there won’t be a Henzilla in sight.
