What the celebs do for their hen and stag parties
It was reported by the Sun newspaper that Pippa and her sisters went by private jet to Méribel in France. Pippa is very fond of skiing and hence it was her first choice for her hen weekend. The party stayed in a catered chalet, who ensured they were totally spoilt.
One hen party was not enough partying for Kim – she had two parties! (Technically it’s called a ‘bachelorette party’ in the states One was held in Beverly Hills, at the Peninsula Hotel. It was just two weeks before her big day. Apparently, it was quite a formal affair – aptly Parisian-themed and very high brow (no blow-up willies or bride-to-be sash in sight.) Her second bachelorette party was in Paris, the night before the night before her actual wedding in Florence. She brought her nearest and dearest friends to the super trendy Salon Chinois restaurant inside the ultra-glam Hotel Costes. After their meal, the party headed to some of Paris' most iconic landmarks.
The Duchess of Cambridge
This one was kept very much top secret as you would expect. The invite was only really extended to family only and a couple of close friends. Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge dressed up as Cheryl Cole to perform the Geordie singer’s debut solo single ‘Fight For This Love’. The Duchess even learned the dance routine and was step perfect apparently. Check out the Dance Class packages with Hen and Stag Sligo.
Kate Moss, Queen of hedonism, set the bar extra quite high for alternative hen dos. ‘Kate’s Big Fat Gypsy Hen Night’-themed do include shipping her friends over to the Isle of Wight Festival for a weekend full of music and super fun. When we say shipped – it was more VIP style with pink Hummers and helicopters and included 300 bottles of booze. Sounds like our Girls Night on the Town Package booked for the Sligo Summer Festival (Weekend of 10th August)
Peaches Geldof’s was quite a tame affair given her wild reputation. The 23-year-old, who apparently went home at 11 pm, had an intimate dinner at a sushi restaurant with friends. She did have the typical hen party accessories like weird penis-themed items but there was no room for male strippers or any of the other typical hen add-ons!.
Another tame enough affair with Martine McCutcheon and six of her closest friends flying to Paris for the weekend. They stayed at the very swanky Hotel Plaza Athenee which featured in Sex and the City. They dressed up in tuxedos for a night on the town. Word is that the night got so raucous that they were kicked out of the Louvre!
Now of all superstars – you would except Katy Perry’s hen night to be epic. It was actually planned by Rihanna and staged in no other than the party capital of the world, Las Vegas. Katy hired Cirque du Soleil to entertain the party. They went on to PARTY, dressed in her obligatory bride-to-be veil and sash. They must have had some fun, with Perry tweeting: “signing up for a liver transplant now...” the following morning.
Cheryl just did a night in London town for a big party. She partied at the infamous Umbaba nightclub, partying with her were her Girls Aloud bandmates and her mum, Joan.
Britney Spears and her beau Kevin Federline almost had a joint stag & hen a.k.a Hag for Sten, instead they had a simultaneous celebration, across the street from each other. Britney partied with her girlfriends in the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica, while K-Fed partied across the street in another venue. As you’d expect, the two groups ended the night celebrating together.
Katie Price’s hen do ahead her getting hitched with Alex Reid in 2010 was ‘Katie Price’. The glamour model enjoyed male strippers and cocktails at the Mayfair hotel in London before receiving a ginormous Barbie princess wedding cake.
Nicole Richie bid adieu to single life at the San Lucas resort in Mexico partying with Sam Ronson and Christina Aguilera at the luxurious Cabo. Her Simple Life co-star, Paris Hilton, was strangely noticeably absent. The Bride-To-Be sash tradition was observed, as was a rather colorful necklace made of tiny penises (as you do). Next day was time for the cure with a spot at topless sunbathing.
Katie and Tom opted for another Sten party or Hag. Theirs was a family affair though; Baby Suri and Tom’s adopted children, Connor and Isabella, were among the guest. Their children and star guests - including Brooke Shields, Jim Carrey & J-Lo, were treated to a 3-course meal in a Rome, Italy. Quite a tame affair for the megastars!.
