Bridal Shower Ideas for a Hens Party with a Difference
Are you looking for bridal shower ideas that are different, easy and versatile?
Have you thought about booking a wine tour?
Wine tours are the perfect choice for hens parties and bridal shower celebrations. The basics are all taken care of; all you need to do is add the imagination. Plus, it’s a great way to include the Mother and Grandmother of the bride and groom in something they can enjoy too.
Hens party wine tours are versatile
A bridal shower wine tour can suit any group of hens. They can vary from a half day to full day hens parties, or even a whole weekend! You can keep the day casual with a bus tour or become VIPs with a luxury vehicle tour. You can even dress the part and glam up or maybe pick a theme to add to the laughs.
Relax and let the wine tour guide cater to your needs
Hen's party tour operators have excellent knowledge of the wine regions and can often recommend wineries to suit your group. Lunch is usually included in the tour, again with many options to suit.
So many options for a hens party
Maybe a breath taking degustation lunch at one of the beautiful winery restaurants would be fitting for your ladies, with local produce and recommended wines to accompany, or perhaps a satisfying local pub lunch is more the girls' style.
Whatever suits you is certainly available in a wine tour.
After lunch there is the possibility of a spot of shopping, chocolate tastings, art and jewels that the region has to offer, or you can skip all that and just continue touring the wineries.
So what kind of hen's party are you?
Casual and low-key?
Relaxing with a touch of class?
Elegance all the way?
A fun themed event?
And don’t worry if you’re not a wine connoisseur. You don’t have to be! That’s what the tour operators are there for.
Just be ready to eat, drink and have fun!
What happens on a hens party wine tour?
This is really only limited to your imagination, but here’s a run-down on what would happen in a typical half day and full day hens party.
Sample of a Half Day Hens Party
Choose from a morning or afternoon hens party wine tour. All tour operators are different but typically a morning hens party will start about 10am and finish about 2:30pm, while an afternoon hens party typically starts about 1pm and finishes about 5:30pm.
Upon collection from your CBD or local accommodation location, you will be hosted by a local to 3 or 4 wineries (time dependent) of your choice. You can set your own itinerary if you like, or let the host lead the way.
You can arrange with your tour providor for some delicious nibbles, morning or afternoon teas, lunch, dinner, or even a picnic in the beautiful grounds of a winery. It's your day out, so just let the tour operator know what you'd like to do on your hens party wine tour.
After a few hours of fun on your classy hens day, your host will return you back to your designated location.
Sample of a Full Day Hens Party
A typical full day hens tour will begin around 10am and finish around 5pm. You can, of course, work out the exact times with your tour operator so that it suits you.
After being picked up from your designated CBD or local accommodation location, you will be hosted by a local to a minimum of 4 wineries through-out the day.
You can decide where to have lunch, either in one of the beautiful wineries, at an exclusive local restaurant, or even at one of the local pubs. The choice is up to you and your tour operator will help you work through the options to best suit your hens party.
Of course, you can set the itinerary for the day, so feel free to include some local shopping, find a beautiful setting to have some photos taken, visit a local chocolatier for some indulgence, or whatever your heart desires... just organise it with the tour operator before hand. They are there to help you have a memorable hens party!
At the end of your wonderful day, your host will return you back to your designated location.
When your on your wine tour, please remember wineries are businesses supporting their local communities. They kindly open their doors to the public and make up to an average of 70% of their wines available for a free tasting at their cellar doors. Whilst nothing is written in stone, it is widely accepted in the tourism industry that it's important to support this very generous arrangement with a purchase of at least one bottle of wine per tasting session. Whilst in the wineries best behaviour is required at all times for Hens Shows!
