Fun and fabulous ways to enjoy your last days of singledom
Pamper parties: Luka Day Spa & Salon Spending the day luxuriating in ‘we time’ with your friends is the type of activity we fully endorse and we know just the place for it. Luka Day Spa is a haven of bliss, located just off London’s iconic Brick Lane. The chic Shoreditch salon is infused with North African elegance, inspire by owner Luka’s travels to Tunisia and Morocco. The bright, colourful and welcoming interiors make it a photogenic place to hold your hen celebrations.
Their Pamper Party packages will see you immersed in several hours of TLC. Choose from a treatment list that includes their rejuvenating LED light therapy facial, aromatherapy massages, luxury paraffin pedicures, nail art manicures and heavenly blow drys. Share the experience with one friend or several. Luka Spa is available for private hire for up to 15 guests and away from the main space and treatment rooms, you’ll get access to a private back garden that you can personalise with decorations and chill out in over drinks and snacks. Book ahead of your Big Day for some pre-wedding R&R or use it as a sanctuary for you and the hens to get beautified together on the wedding morning itself. www.luka-dayspa-salon.com
Get creative: Craft workshops Make something you can take home and keep as a memento of your hen celebrations thanks to the cool and colourful creative workshops run by Twin Made in Cardiff. You’ll have full use of their creative studio, and will be guided by Chief Crafter Charlotte to make anything from their Crafty Party menu. There’s neon sign making, plant holders, jewellery, and even bunting that can be displayed at your wedding. Or, opt for their legendary private pompom parties where together you’ll make a vibrant assortment of woolly poms that can be styled into snazzy headdresses or decorative garlands. Popular sessions include Twin Made’s bridesmaid’s skirt sewing circle and a fun Bride-To-Be jacket workshop where your hens can flock together and make you a one-of-a-kind piece of bespoke couture. www.twinmade.com
