CANNES & NICE
5 Hens - 2 Nights - Aug 2019 - £450pp
Meet Amy, she used Ladies Who Hen to help plan her own Hen Getaway to the French Riviera! Hear her story!
Please tell us a bit about your Hen Party and what you did?
We had three days in the south of France (Cannes) We started the Friday off with a relaxing afternoon wondering around the shops near by our hotel & stopped in a few of the bars for a drink & a spot of people watching. Friday evening we went for a beautiful meal down on the sea front - the food was incredible - then we took a leisurely walk back along the sea front to our hotel, Cannes was bustling with people and the shoreline at night was just amazing. Saturday was beach day! Before heading down there we popped into a little coffee bar next door to our hotel for a croissant & a coffee then we took a slow walk down towards the beach club stopping to browse the markets on our way. The beach club Kate had booked was just perfect - beautiful calm relaxing decor, amazing food & drinks and we spent pretty much the entire day there! That night we headed out to a local restaurant for a delicious Italian meal and drinks. Sunday morning we were up and on our way back to Nice by 10am, we went to the most beautiful, Molinard boutique - it was here we got to create our own 50ml perfume. Once we'd created out scents, we took a walk along the sea front to our lunch venue - this was just the most amazing way to finish our weekend away - the restaurant was on the 11th floor of a hotel and the views were just breathtaking.
What was the highlight of the Hen Party?
There was not one bit of it I didn't love, it was everything I would have booked if I'd done it myself. But for me, the perfume making was so very special, when we got engaged in June 2018 I said straight away that I really wanted to visit the south of France - the home of perfume - to make my wedding day scent. So that for me was a really amazing experience.
What made you reach out to Ladies Who Hen to help organise the Hen?
I knew I wanted quite a bespoke hen, my first hen do in Cannes, I wanted very small, luxurious and it had to incorporate the perfume making. The second I found LWH on Google I just knew they'd be the perfect company for me to use. Both for Cannes and for my second, larger hen do in London!
What were the benefits of using Ladies Who Hen?
I mean it's a no brainer! Chat with Kate, discuss what you like, don't like, want to try etc and that is it - she provides you with a full itinerary of times / costs / options - it's amazing & so stress free!
What difficulties did you encounter?
If you had any advice to give future Hen Party planners – what would you say?
