How are you today? I can’t believe its Monday already – the weekend goes far too quick! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I am doing a special post today for the launch of Tattyjobangles Vintage Hen House website TODAY ~ a special website for vintage styled hen parties – this is certainly a Love Vintage Tea Favourite especially since Love Vintage Tea is going to be a part of it too! 🙂
Here in Abbie’s own words – how she came up with this fantastic idea…
On Monday 21st March I will be launching a new website that caters purely for vintage styled hen parties. Forget the pink fluffy ‘L’ plates, we want to offer brides to be and their closest friends something a bit different. Traditionalists would call it a supplier directory but that’s far too dull, so I call it ‘the Vintage Hen House’.
This idea came about after I planned my own vintage themed hen party (yes I planned my own hen party, control freak much) as I really didn’t want to do any of the traditional hen type things. To be honest I wasn’t really looking forward to my hen party, as the idea of L-Plates, pink feather boas and flashing hair bands filled me with dread.
So I came up the with the idea of having a vintage themed hen shoot. I planned each component from hair and make-up, the photographer, the clothes and locations. There are hen packages out there but you just end up with something you pick off a menu rather than something that suits your taste and personality. Now finding each individual supplier was time consuming; trying to find the right people in the right areas and for the right price. I had the advantage of knowing a few suppliers beforehand but if you were starting from scratch you would have spend hours searching the web to get the same result.
The response I had to my hen shoot was amazing and it got featured on the Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog where the feedback from people was awesome. I have been asked many times about how I planned my hen party from people wanting to do their own, so at the Hen House was born.
Tattybojangles’ Vintage Hen House is about creating a little vintage haven for hen party planners (and suppliers) where they could find a whole range of great vintage suppliers so they can create their own bespoke, unforgettable, amazing, sassy and totally individual experience.
We have hair and make-up artists, photographers, entertainers, stylists, stationers, clothing and accessories, cakes suppliers and many more on the site covering a range of places all over the country. Unlike a lot of similar sites I don’t charge for listings, so you will find a great range of local, independent suppliers that will suit the most lavish or modest of budgets.
I don’t offer a planning service but I will be happy to help anyone with hints or tips to help create a bride to be’s perfect hen party.
Love Vintage Tea ~ The Vintage Hen House is such a fabulous idea so if you ever need any suppliers to create your own vintage hen party then check out Tattyjobangles Vintage Hen House here – its such a fabulous source of information!
