Hen dos are a fantastic tradition as well as a great excuse for a hen-tastic party, so they deserve more of a personal touch. Yes in this digital age it's easy and convenient to communicate via Twitter, Facebook, email, text, etc with just the tap of a smart phone but there's a lot to be said for an old fashioned invite. It will certainly be a nice touch for the bride-to-be to see how much effort is going into her big weekend and reassure her that all the preparations are in good hands.

Creating your hen party invitations...

By Hand

If you're artistic or have elegant handwriting then you can create your hen party invitations by hand. You can find quality, good grade* or handmade paper from high street shops or online retailers, then with a careful hand and fine pen you can create something really unique. The guest of honour's own invite will also make a great addition to her hen party keepsake box.

*The grade of paper is often denoted by its thickness which is measured in 'gsm' (grams per square metre). Better grade paper is usually thicker and therefore has a higher gsm.

Of course you don't have to stick to pen and paper, you can create fabulous hen party invites with a laptop, printer and a little inspiration.
