So, you want to plan a vintage hen party? Whether you’re already a polka dots and pin-up girls pro, or simply fancy yourself and your girl gang as fledgeling forces sweethearts for one time only, a vintage hen party promises to be one to remember. There’s more to it than just coiffing your hair into a victory roll and slicking on a red lip though; a little extra love and attention can take a hen party from ‘so good!’ to ‘that was something else!’. Here are three places to start searching for divine inspiration from the hen party angels.
Pinterest should come with a warning because once you disappear down that rabbit hole of vintage hen party inspiration, there ain’t no coming back. A bit of a must if you’re a crafty little so and so, Pinterest is a haven of DIY inspiration, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself throwing together a ‘Pimp Your Prosecco’ station or scouting the local charity shops for china teacups to recreate that chintzy vintage tea party. And if any of the gang need convincing that a vintage hen party is the way to go, jot ‘vintage style’ into the search bar and watch as the pin curls, circle skirts and rouged lips do the convincing for you.
Firle Vintage Fair
Promising an opportunity to ‘step back in time, in style’ Firle Vintage Fair is our yearly source of vintage hen party inspiration. A vintage festival in the heart of the drop dead gorgeous Sussex countryside, Firle Vintage Fair throws things back to a bygone era with Gatsby Girls, Swing Jazz, Charleston troupes and letting loose with the Lindy Hop. A catwalk show and hand-picked vintage stalls offer up endless ideas for hen party looks and just getting the girls together to sip sloe gin and enjoy artisanal eats in the country makes the perfect vintage hen party prelude.
