AUTHOR: VINCE OF 'WHY KNOT TIES'
I have a question for you. How many times have you seen a hen’s night party out and about? What makes them stand out? How do you know they are celebrating a friend’s wedding?
Most answers are the same.
Are you looking for something different? Are you looking for something a ‘little more’ than you could do any other night out? Okay, that was way more than one question, but thank you for answering them anyway.
I am sure you want something more sophisticated, something… different. Well, ladies, suit up, because a kick-butt James Bond/tuxedo hen party is precisely what you need.
THE STYLE GUIDE
If you are going with the tuxedo theme, then you need to start with the outfit!
There is something sophisticated and all-together flattering about wearing a suit. Also, if you haven’t branched out and rocked a suit yet, they are incredibly fun to wear. Grab yourselves matching tuxedos and bow ties, and hit the town looking like the bosses you are.
Seriously, this is such a fun theme, and it always leads to a great time. You should even dabble in colour by all wearing stylish, printed bow ties. A Bond tuxedo theme is an ultimate idea for a bride who isn’t one to usually wear a dress, or one who wants something elegant and chic, but also unique.
Furthermore, there is always the ability to scale down if you don’t want to go the full tuxedo route. Simply wear black trousers, white shirts, and matching bow ties to get the look across. There is even the option of making sure the bride wears white.
The style might make the man (or woman in this case), but the venue is really where this theme idea shines.
Once you have suited up, why not keep the James Bond tuxedo theme going and hit the Casino; where some early gambling may be on the cards.
If going into the Casino isn’t your thing, a ‘Casino Night’ style pre-party is also incredibly fun. Play some classic games while you mingle; and let the bride put her hair down for a few hours. Having different bridesmaids responsible for different games is a great way to share the load and spread the love! Remember, not everybody will be clued in on all the traditional Casino game rules, so include a variety of more comfortable games to play too.
If you are throwing a themed party, then don’t just stop with the Casino games, decorate with style! A red carpet and even flame lights will set the scene. However, if the decorations don’t do the trick, then the music will. Choose from a selection of classics or even a James Bond soundtrack or two.
Furthermore, a tuxedo-themed photo-booth is a must to document the events of the evening. Add in fun props like jumbo playing cards, casino chips, cigars, champagne bottles and anything else with an added bit of prestige.
Finally, the food and drink need to match the theme. From chocolate strawberries and themed cake-pops to a selection of cheeses; the girls can fill up on a range of goodies. Although, we know it doesn’t stop there. The extremely welcome addition of sparkling wine and martinis (shaken, not stirred, naturally), will be the real crowd-pleaser.
