So you’re just a month or few weeks away from your wedding, the day you become a Mrs. The day you get married is the day you not only become a wife, but also a daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, maybe an aunt and many other relationships become a part of your life.

Once you get married it’s possible that most of the activities that you are a part of, will be with your beloved husband. So in the few weeks leading up to the big day, indulge in fun activities with your friends and family for the last time as a single woman.

Here’s some fun stuff for you to do which will make for great memories for a lifetime.

1. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

While your maid of honour and bridesmaids are brainstorming for hen night ideas, you should get yourself busy with planning a girls night for all your girlfriends. If your bridesmaids are fulfilling their duty of hosting a hen do for you, you should also plan a final girls night with your gang. Whether it’s a movie night and a sleepover, or just a dancing session, a photoshoot or a games night, plan a night of all things fun with your friends that they will remember for life.

2. A Date

No i’m not asking you to go on a date with a random guy, go on one final date with your future husband, just to take in the feeling of being his girlfriend one last time. Make it romantic and fun, with candlelight dinner, wine, a long drive, a movie, whatever you want. Don’t talk about the wedding, just talk about things you both enjoy and mutually favourite topics. You can also go to some of the old spots that you both loved and reminisce over your long relationship that is finally bringing you both together as one, for eternity.

3. Brother and Sisters’ Day Out

If you have sibling or cousins, definitely take a day out to spend time with them. Go out for a movie, lunch, some games or spend time playing games you enjoyed as children. It’ll bring you all closer to each other and that is important before you get married so that they know that you’ll always love them and be there for them. Being the one getting married puts you in a position to pamper your younger ones with all things fun and filled with love.

4. Family Day Out

Spend an entire day with your parents and other immediate family members. Take them out for a movie, shopping or a nice dinner and let them know how much you love them. You can also take this as an opportunity to thank your family for being there for you all along and always supporting you. They will love it that you have taken out time from your busy wedding preparations to spend time with them. Weddings are an extremely emotional time for parents, so make sure that you make them feel comfortable and relaxed.

5. The Bachelorette Trip

Take one last solo trip as a bachelorette before you have to take all your trips with your dear husband. Solo trips are really rejuvenating and refreshing, something that you could really benefit from, after all that hectic wedding preparation. You can also plan a trip for your hen do in London or some other popular hen do destination, but taking a solo trip will inspire you, give you life lessons, make you appreciate things more and make you grow as a person. So if you can manage to take out a weekend, definitely treat yourself to a solo trip.

6. Letters To Loved Ones

If you want to thank your family members and friends for their unconditional love and support, leave them with a letter expressing your gratitude and feelings towards them. You can also give them a small token of appreciation along with handwritten letters which they will cherish for life.


Weddings are a once in a lifetime event that joins your life and family with your husband for eternity. So before you take that step into matrimony, do all the things that you enjoy as a single girl and tick off all your personal wishes one last time.
