A bride-to-be has admitted she doesn’t want to attend her own hens party because she doesn’t like what her friends have planned for the occasion.
The anonymous woman posted on Facebook, where she revealed her dilemma and explained that her friends have planned a ‘massive night out’ even though she told them she wanted something ‘low-key’ instead.
The woman wrote: ‘My hen party has been planned and it’s not me at all!

‘I specifically asked for a low-key event, nothing too over the top. I’m not somebody who likes to party but my friends are.’
The woman went on to say that her friendship circle have organised a ‘massive night out with butlers and everything’.
‘I really don’t want to go… to my own hen party! Has anyone else had this issue?’ she wrote.
The bride-to-be was quickly inundated with comments from others, who were divided as to whether she should tell her friends or not (stock image)
It wasn’t long before the bride-to-be was inundated with comments from other women who had had the same experience with their friends and their hens party.
‘I had the same thing happen to me, I hated mine,’ one woman wrote.
‘I wanted a dinner and some amazing cocktails at a fancy water side bar.’
‘Instead, everyone left me and went to a strip club that I didn’t want to go to as well as forcing me to go to a night club I didn’t want to go to. It was the worst night and I wish I’d stood my ground and said none of this was what I wanted!’
Others agreed and said the woman should definitely tell her friends about her issue:
‘They can plan that kind of night for themselves any time. They’re your friends, talk to them,’ one commenter wrote.
Another said she doesn’t have to tell all of them, just the maid of honour.
‘Tell her you’ve already stated you want something low-key. Ask her to cancel this event, and that you’d appreciate so much if they can plan something small. MOH [maid of honour] can relay to the rest of the group.’
But not everyone said the woman should be trying to get her friends to change the night:
‘I actually think it’s a once in a lifetime, so you should let them take care of it,’ one woman wrote.
‘You may just have the best time of your life, so try not to overthink it and enjoy the moment and remember they have gone to a lot of trouble because they love you.’
Another said: ‘Go and have a great time, you won’t regret it’.
