Here at Bespoke Weekends we try to cover every eventuality by reminding you of the things that can get overlooked in the run up to your weekend. If you have already used our services to book your amazing weekend then there’s no need to panic, as we will have covered these things with you either at time of booking or weeks in advance of your arrival.

If not, then read on!

Your pre hen party checklist will already be fairly substantial, from double checking group numbers, gathering payments, fulfilling last minute requests from some of the girls (there’s always one!), pre-paying venues, confirming flights or trains, confirming transfers at your destination..…. The list goes on!

Here are just a few things to double check to avoid any weekend hiccups: -

Accommodation Bookings – are you 100% sure the hotel or apartment owners know you are a hen group (single sex group booking)? This is something you should always disclose at time of booking as you risk being turned away on arrival. There are a lot of places that won’t accept single sex groups so it’s better to be upfront and honest when you confirm your booking. The majority of places are fine with hen or stag groups but check the small print just in case.

Dress Code - Please do take some time to consider dress code during your stay. If you have spent time (and money) planning a theme with fancy dress outfits, t-shirts or sashes for the group then you do not want to turn up at a cool George Street bar with a strict dress code policy and be turned away at the door!! Sooo embarrassing and not a good memory of your weekend. Checking this beforehand with the venues you have booked will ensure there are no dress code disasters for your group.

Dietary requirements – always double check with the group if anyone has any specific dietary requests. Usually if some one has an allergy or medical dietary issue they will have made you aware of this from early on in your planning process but it’s something worth double-checking. There will always be the ‘fussy eaters’ too so make a note of all requests and ensure the venues booked are aware of this beforehand to ensure there are no issues on the day or night.

Rooming lists - to avoid any issues on arrival at your hotel or apartments then always have a pre-prepared rooming list. If you are responsible for a large group of girls then the likelihood is you won’t keep everyone happy but try to keep any changes minimal (your decision is final!) to avoid any check- in stress.

If the thought of all if this is a little stressful, then don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll make sure you have everything covered! 

Let us simplify the process further with these exclusive added benefits for your group:-

  • £75 voucher for each guest to use against a future group booking (t's & c's apply).
  • Your guests can make individual payments via your personal group payment page which is activated once you confirm your booking.
  • If you want any additional surprises for the bride-to-be or your guests we can arrange for any of the following purchased items to be placed in your Edinburgh accommodation ahead of your arrival. Take a look at our Hen Party Gifts. Any order would need to be placed at least 4 weeks in advance of arrival.
