Girl’s weekends can be the best weekends – or they can be disastrous for friendship if things don’t go to plan. For a successful weekend, we have some tips to make sure everyone has a good time.
Save the date
Get the date locked into the calendar at least a couple of months in advance or else other obligations will crop up in between. Book the hotel, flights if necessary, and closer to the time, you can book your airport transfer in advance to get you safely to the airport.
Set a budget that suits everyone
For a stress-free trip for all, set a reasonable budget that suits everyone. Websites like Travelex can help you to plan your budget and get a ballpark spending money figure for everyone.
Plan an activity
Get out and do something that you’d never try at home. Girl’s weekends are the perfect excuse to let your hair down and be silly together. Even if no one is getting married you can take a look at hen’s party ideas for fun things to do.
But don’t plan every second…
While it’s good to have a plan of action for the trip, not everyone will want to stick with a rigid itinerary for the whole weekend. Leave some free time to just go with the flow. If you are the hyper-organised type, pick a couple of main events for the trip and go to town with the details.
Be mindful of group dynamics
Are you the type of girl who has several groups of friends that maybe don’t get along too well? It might not be wise to invite them on the girls weekend together. When planning a girly weekend, it’s probably best to stick with one group of close friends.
Watch the alcohol intake
Whilst it’s fun to have a few cosmo’s with the girls on a weekend away, too much alcohol can lead to all kinds of problems. We don’t need to elaborate on that one!
