I'm going to Leeds too. I thought about going for a meal but I've decided to just go for drinks to try and keep the costs down for everyone, I know some of my hens are a bit cash strapped atm. I've booked a minibus to leave mine for 6.30pm which I'm paying for but because we don't know what time we'll want to go home we're just getting taxis back.
My maid of honor organized the whole thing. I only knew the dates in advance. She made a whole weekend out of it. We slept at her place. On Friday evening, we went out for dinner and drinks at a restaurant we all like then had a few drinks back at her place.
On the Saturday, we had mimosas in the morning, then buffet lunch with all the ladies. A masseur came with his chair and gave us all massages while we were doing our nails and make up (I know a manucurist was supposed to come and do our nails, but she cancelled at the last minute). We went to a restaurant for dinner and came back for a sex products presentation (which was awesome). She had a cake done just for me and we were supposed to go out later, but I ended with food poisonning from the restaurant.
On Sunday, we just relaxed the whole day, ate cake (once I felt that my stomach would support food) and watched wedding movies
Finally, on Monday (it was long weekend), we went shopping from bridesmaids dresses.
It was a really nice weekend, girls only and no cellphone or anything. I hope you all enjoy what you have planned!!
I organised a trip to Alton Towers for me and some friends, we went down early on the morning and stayed the night in a hotel then some of us went back again the next day too!
The second one my MOH organised as a suprise, we went on a river cruise/BBQ in the city, we were going to go round the town afterwards but my MOH's dress zip completely broke, a guy on the cruise fell down the stairs and knocked himself out scaring everyone and I had a thumping headache so left after we got off the boat the rest of the party went on into town and had a brill night
We are planning on going to TGI Fridays for a meal with all the girls from my side and DFs side then all the oldies are going home and we are hitting the town. We are doing it the weekend before the wedding so i have plenty of time to get over all the drinking and the bloating that comes with it for me
