I’ve got a great post today from Chilli Sauce all about alternatives to the traditional Hen & Stag … but first just a quick reminder that from today my new Greetings Card range is available to buy from my Facebook Card Shop. You can also still buy one off individual Christmas Cards (rather than packs) but please note I can’t guarantee delivery for Christmas after this weekend.
Anyway back to today’s post! I’ll hand you over to Rebecca from Chilli Sauce

Traditionally as part of the pre wedding celebrations both the bride and groom organise separate events to celebrate their ‘last night’ of freedom as it were, enjoying the company of same sex friends and family, before embarking on their married life together.
I’d like to introduce you to the ‘Hag Do’. This hybrid of both the Hen and Stag night envelopes the all the great things about pre-wedding celebrations and combines them in to one.
Reasons to have a Hag Do:
The lead up to the wedding is busy enough, without the organisation of two other parties with two sets of friends. So, the hag do is perfect for getting everybody together in one place, with all the same elements you would chose for your night out.
If like most couples you are paying for your wedding, you will be budgeting on everything before and even after the wedding. For this reason the Hag do is perfect, one venue cost rather than two, one hotel cost (because you can share).
Your all loved up and about to spend the rest of your lives together, what could be better than celebrating that together, along with all your friends and family. Plus, I like to think that by this stage, your guy would hate to spend a night away from you. Awh.
Depending on your tastes as a couple you really can do whatever you like, from a weekend away in clubs and pubs, to an adventure day out, to a sit down dinner and drinks. The choice really is yours.
But remember . . .
To compromise, if you do decide to unite in your Stag and Hen party plans, make sure it’s something you both want to do, and agree suits you both.
