Wedding planning can be stressful, and sometimes the bride-to-be might feel like running away from it all.
So why not let her?
Why not grab her closest friends and family, and run away to the circus for a day?!
RUNNING AWAY TO THE CIRCUS
It’s one thing to go to the circus and see the aerialists fly over your head, but getting up there yourself is a whole different experience.
Learning to climb high and hang upside down is not only incredibly fun, but will also help your hen relax. After all, it’s hard to worry about that upcoming wedding when you’re feet aren’t on the ground!
WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ADULT CIRCUS PARTY?
You will learn a whole lot of new skills (with plenty of Instagramable moments to capture along the way)! For example, the basics of aerial skills, trapeze and lyra (i.e. the aerial hoop) will have you working up a sweat, whilst simultaneously leaving the whole party amazed at what their bodies can do. And while some guests may be a bit nervous at the start of the class (feeling as though they’re not strong enough, fit enough, brave enough, or anything else enough), experienced trainers will soon put their mind at ease, making sure they’re comfortable, having an amazing time and wanting more by the end!
Following the actual lesson, these new skills of yours can be celebrated by sipping on a glass of wine and chowing down on some delicious food (all of which you will definitely deserve!). You can also have a giggle and re-live your favourite (or most hilariously awkward) moments by scrolling through the hundreds of photos you snapped throughout the day.
ADD TO THE FUN WITH CIRCUS COSTUMES
And if that’s not enough, this type of party is also perfect for the hen who loves any excuse to dress up. Whether you encourage the group to arrive with a similar style of performer makeup (colourful eyes and lips, for example), clown makeup (rosy cheeks, dramatic eyes, red nose and red lips) or even in a set dress code (such as bright colours or patterned bows); it will only add to the fun, laughter and photo ops on the day.
Just remember that this type of experience will require clothing that can’t get caught in equipment, and that you can easily move around in. The golden rules are to wear anything that you can move in and be upside-down in, as well as no zippers! To make sure everyone can join in and have a great time, specify the type of clothing allowed on your invitations (and if you’re the one choosing what everyone will wear, make sure it’s something suitable for the class)!
