We never met a music festival we didn’t love. There’s dancing and drinks and we’re there with our favourite people, good grub is never far away and our favourite bands are providing a soundtrack that could keep us up until dawn if there wasn’t a one-man tent waiting with our name on it, a (relatively) decent night’s sleep the only thing standing between us and doing it all again tomorrow.
Hitting the bride-to-be’s favourite festival might the first thought that comes to mind when you start hen party planning but there’s another option that’ll appeal far more to the mud-shy mums and mosh-pit averse aunties. A festival themed hen party with more make up than mud? Now you’re talking.
Taking everything the bride loves about festival fun and bringing it to Brighton for one of our festival themed hen party makeover sessions is easy when you know how.
First thing’s first, you’ve gotta look the part…
When we decided to take everything we know about hen parties and knock em dead makeovers and put a festival spin on things, we knew we needed to invest in the heavyweights. We’re talking glitter and face paint, of course, two ingredients without which any festival is merely an average party in a wet field. It isn’t a festival without a face painted flower or enough sparkle to sink a ship. Fortunately, here at The Beauty Artist we have that side of things covered, which leaves you free to think about…
…Channelling those Woodstock vibes
Never heard of Woodstock? Ask your mum and prepare for her to wax lyrical about the first festival as we know and love them today. If the bride-to-be has a penchant for all things vintage, arranging for everyone at the hen to rock a Woodstock-worthy dose of flares, rose-tinted shades and Farrah Fawcett waves will knock her socks off. Bonus points for Jimmy Hendrix-style headscarves.
The devil is in the details
The beauty of a festival themed hen party is that it opens up a world of opportunity on the theme front. We’re talking invites designed to look just like festival tickets, wristbands for all attendees, VIP passes for the Maid of Honour and Mother of the Bride/Groom; the sky’s the limit. It’s time to get crafty.
Don’t forget to curate a killer playlist
It wouldn’t be a festival without a kick-ass soundtrack provided by the hottest bands around. Go all out; we’re talking 50s jigs that’ll have nan kicking up her heels like she did in the good old days, 70s classics that’ll get mum reminiscing and reliving her Bay City Rollers obsession, and all the songs that have seen the bride through nights down the local and weekends away with the girls. If you really want to up the ante and build the hype, share it as a Spotify playlist a week or two before the hen do but don’t say we didn’t warn you when the happy couple ask you to take over DJ duties on the big day!
