Hen Party vs Bridal Shower Tea Party at our Tea Room in London
Here at Tea Party, we have deliberated this question many times. Hen Party or Bridal Shower? What is the best for you?
Did you know? Some do both! The reason being is that a Hen Party Tea Party is more about doing some old fashioned stuff. It can be part of an overall hen party weekend where the bride to be has an action packed 2 days ahead. Included in this, is the opportunity to get together either before or after the activities begin. Some find that bonding over tea and bubbles is the perfect opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know each other before heading out perhaps for dinner and a few cocktails. Or the alternative, an afternoon tea party before heading home. There may be games played (make a wedding dress from loo roll is a firm favourite). A ‘Mr & Mrs’ type quiz whereby the groom has provided some answers to some ‘delicate’ questions. Some girls even order a naked butler, because if you think about it, just doesn’t seem right to have with a Bridal Shower.
Further more, the Bridal Shower tends to be a more delicate affair. Perhaps it’s symbolic of more sedate tea party in which the bride celebrates very close to the wedding. Or is that wrong? Is it an American idea in similar vein to the imported and totally fabulous Baby Shower?
Bridal Showers tend to be up to a week before the big day. The Bride to be desires a very pretty setting (consequently and we love this) finds that our pretty private venue is the perfect space to sit and sip tea. Discuss the wedding over delicate finger sandwiches, a cream tea and scrummy cakes.
