Weddings – So much more than the big day; Hen and Stag Ideas
12 Jun

So you have found the partner of your dreams and have decided to get married, whether you are recently engaged or have had the ring for a few years and you are now taking the plunge.  There are lots of things to consider when you start your planning, so for that we put together top tips for planning a wedding, by wedding professionals.  These days however, there is so much more to consider especially on the lead up to your big day…

Hen Party Ideas

From a spa weekend to afternoon tea we have a variety of hen party activities for you to choose from.  Think about whether you want to come for the day or a weekend away.

Our Love Package is the ultimate way to unwind with a spa break.  Relaxing in the pool and hydro spa is a great way to forget the wedding planning for a few hours, as well as enjoying a 50 minute spa treatment.  In the evening you will enjoy a 2 course meal in Blas Restaurant before falling asleep in one of our classic, but contemporary bedrooms for the night. 

Alternatively, if you would just like to visit for the day the Cherish Package includes a 25 minute spa treatment with a light lunch.  For those interested in their wellbeing our Holistic Hen package is very popular.  The self-pampering is done with our Elemis trained staff and includes mini facials and some of your favourite products. 

Rising in popularity are afternoon tea parties.  Served in a private room, so there is the opportunity to play some themed games, the Vintage Package includes a traditional afternoon tea with unlimited tea and coffee all served on vintage crockery and china.  There of course is the opportunity to add on cocktails and prosecco. 

For those looking for something more active, there is a one day body blitz.  The Bridal Bootcamp is a good way of boosting your fitness or helping to tone up.  Held in the gorgeous grounds at Bryn Meadows the training is led by the Fusion Wellness Leisure Team.  As well as burning calories, toning muscle and strengthening your body lunch and smoothies are included.  This can also be tailored to stags and mixed groups too. 

Stag Party Ideas

Increasingly more stags are looking to stay closer to home and especially are looking for hotels with golf courses and spa facilities.  This year we were announced as the best golf course in Wales after being named Welsh Golf Club of the Year by the Golf Union of Wales.  At the resort we have always been very popular for Golf Breaks which include an overnight stay, dinner in Blas Restaurant as well as a few rounds on the Championship course. 

An alternative golf stag do would be our Pie, Pint & Putt packages.  This includes an hour on the golf simulator plus a pie served with mash and gravy and a pint in Winners Bar.  The overnight stay version also allow you to enjoy the leisure facilities such as a steam and sauna and a full Welsh breakfast before you depart.

Mixed Groups

More frequently we are also getting requests to host mixed parties to celebrate and over the last few years it has grown in popularity.  They are known as STEN’s and merge of the word stag and hens.  As well as the above packages, many choose to attend one of our Upcoming Events.  These are usually in the evening and will include dinner as well as the entertainment. 

However, all the team at Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa can build bespoke packages to suit your group.  If you would like any further information about planning a Stag, Hen or Sten please feel free to get in contact on 01495 225590 or
