You start off feeling like a super organised girl boss!

Then someone mentions 'responsibility' and you start feeling a little unsure..

But hey, you can sooo do this, right?..

You start doing research on things to do and places to stay, and feel super productive...

Until you realise that you've been looking at hen party stuff for HOURS. 

You're starting to feel a little frazzled so you call in some of the other girls for help... Then realize you're more confused than ever! Just too many opinions!

The invite list proves to be the most difficult part of all! I mean, does the bride really want the cousin she hardly ever sees there?

And you think that you might just snap when someone suggests that they 'might not be able to make it'...

Or that they were 'sure they'd given you the money for that already'...

Eventually, things slowly start coming together, and you think you might just pull it off...

You rush around in a last minute panic to make sure you've thought of everything!

Eventually, you realise that you've done a pretty good job, and can finally relax and and unwind a little!
