Things to Stop & Swap for a classy Hen’s party

A hen’s party or do; traditionally the last celebration of freedom for a bride-to-be before her ‘big day’… however, it seems more these days that it may have actually become the last time to get wild and let your hair down with friends, while they find ways to embarrass you… all in the spirit of the event.

If the wild nights, secret planning and amble opportunities to be put in compromising and embarrassing situations have you nervous about the whole thing, we’ve got news for you! They DON’T all have to be sashes, L-plates, strippers, clubs, phallic themed objects and getting utterly, embarrassingly drunk.

If you're looking for a hen's party in Brisbane and surrounds, here are just some of the ways to transform your Hen’s Party from cliché to classy:

STOP red-faced entrances & SWAP for red carpet entrances.

STOP ordering cabs and having to travel in separate vehicles & SWAP for travelling in style in a limousine capable of accommodating 14 people.

STOP shots and blue lagoons through phallic straws & SWAP for fine wine and Champagne.

STOP entertainers without clothes  & SWAP for entertainers with clothes.

STOP cheap take-away foods & SWAP for fine dining, light lunches or wine tastings.

STOP becoming a public spectacle & SWAP for a private venue to drink, dance, play games and sing as you please.

STOP tedious planning for multiple venues/surprises & SWAP for an easy to plan day out with only two bookings required.

It’s not difficult to transform your next hen’s do from cliché to classy with these simple tips. Want something in Brisbane that ticks all the above criteria? You’re in luck, because we’ve done all the hard work for you by finding the perfect combination to complement the upgraded-swapped hen’s celebration. And here’s how!

Limoso and Sirromet Winery are unofficial partners, but work so well together for hen’s themed dos or events, combining luxury transportation with an elegant venue for extended entertainment and socialising. Don’t see it yet? Let me walk you through the criteria.

Limoso, Brisbane

Limoso, Brisbane

Limoso is a Brisbane Limousine hire and corporate transfer company, who will go the extra mile to make your day as memorable as possible, for all the right reasons. Their newest prestige vehicle, the Mercedes Limo Cruiser (pictured) is the ultimate party vehicle, with all the room of a private nightclub for 14 guests, including a personal cocktail bar, sound system with iPhone connectivity, Plasmas, laser lights and plenty of room to stand!

Arrive and leave anywhere in ultimate style with Limoso’s red carpet option and say goodbye to squeezing into or stumbling out of a maxi taxi. While travelling within the Limoso, you will have access to your own chosen selection of chilled beverages and better yet, as the Mercedes Limo Cruiser completely separates your party from the driver, you’re legally allowed to drink as you please.

Sirromet Winery, Mt Cotton

However, the drive to Sirromet Winery from Brisbane is 40 minutes, so you may want to mix things up with playing a few games or making use of the sound system and two Plasma screens.
When you arrive at Sirromet in style, you can choose to indulge in a winery tour, a light lunch alfresco style or a premium wine tasting of Sirromet’s most premium award-winning Le Sauvage & Private Collection wines, guided by their wine experts. No tequila slammers here; just fine wine and bubbles!

If that wasn’t already enough, Sirromet’s gorgeous country style setting in Mount Cotton offers live music on their rolling green weekend afternoons, with special events scheduled as ‘A Day On The Green’, with previous acts including Mariah Carey, Pete Murray and Jimmy Barnes. The next event is Billy Idol, scheduled for March 2015.

Think this sounds more like your idea of the ideal hen’s do?

Ask Limoso and Sirromet to organise your perfect party… or perhaps sneakily share this link with the social media buttons below in hopes the person in charge of organising your hen's will get your subtle hint.
