The Boho Groom Blog Takeover – Boho Bride’s Surprise Hen Do!

July 29, 2011  

To the Boho Bride loyal readers, something a bit different today…

Hi, I’m Adam and in around six weeks (oh god, I still haven’t sorted out my wedding suit yet!) will be getting married to Sarah who writes this blog. I guess you all know her as Boho Bride…which I find quite weird but also cute and I’m very proud of what she’s achieved!

Now you may be wondering where Sarah is and why she isn’t writing this post, well she has been completely unaware that I have been plotting with her mates for months a surprise hen do, she thought her hen-do was going to be in September, so imagine her surprise yesterday afternoon when her 2 friends showed up outside our house and knocked the door recreating  the classic ‘card scene’ in Love Actually between Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley, only this time it was Kim and Nat explaining what was going on!

On hearing she was to pack and leave home for a couple days, her only panic was that nothing was going to be on the blog  - so I decided to step up and takeover.

Right now she’s on a plane headed towards Dublin.

It’s taken me a good hour of staring at the screen to think about what I should write and have decided that the subject should be about women on their hen do’s, cos there’s always plenty of coverage on stags.

So here my big confession. You women might worry about us blokes on our stags, but we worry just as much about you. Fact. And I don’t mean in an insecure sense - I mean genuine worry for her well being. Here is why:

Sarah is a lightweight. When we first met, she was pretty good at keeping up with the lads, she used to drink snake bite. Imagine, this little blond thing, with tiny hands holding a pint of snake bite. Impressive. She now really only drinks in a social environment, maybe every couple of weeks, so if we’re having a blow-out night it now gets very messy as she’s not used to it. She also vomits a lot, (ok to use that word = too harsh?) our friends cream carpet is testament to that and her preference for red wine.

She has no sense of direction, sober or otherwise.

She gets hyper when she dances, especially when she hears a song she likes. There has been many a ‘dance off’ in Cardiff’s Tiger Tiger and my Mrs can make a whole nightclub some to a stand-still with her comical moves. Normally not a bad thing, but at a friends recent hen do, she spent the whole night dancing with some big bear of a bloke who moved like Billy Elliot and she failed to notice that the ankle she’s messed up (a torn ligament) which she should be resting had tripled in size. She came home in agony with a clubbed foot. Actually clubbed like you see old ladies have, spilling out of her shoe.

She worries about whether other people are having fun, sometimes to the detriment of her own enjoyment.

So if you do get a chance to read this honey, relax and enjoy. Your with your favourite people for a whole weekend celebrating a wedding that’s been a decade in the making (sorry about that)…just please don’t come home with another tooth missing!

…I’ll save that story for another day.


PS. as long as nothing awful happens the boho bride blog should be back to normal on Monday, if maybe a little worse for wear!

    Oh how fantastically gorgeous of you to help surprise her and to look after her blog while away on said surprise!
    Although not convinced any girl would appreciate the world being informed of her drunken escapades?! Let’s hope she is too pleased with you to be angry…! (“,)

    Ah, I didn’t think about that part! oops! Let’s hope a new blog called ‘Boho divorce’ doesn’t pop up soon. lol

    Ha ha, Adam, don’t worry – the rest of this lovely post, plus the fact that you helped plan this lovely weekend will, I’m sure, outweigh your ‘vomit’ comment :o )
    Just to make triply sure you stay in the good books, maybe you could sort out your wedding day outfit today?!?!

    Ah hen dos… The cause of much anxiety for brides, bridesmaids and mothers! It’s nice to know the groom cares so much too.

    Tip for you, since you’ve got the weekend off… maybe get that suit organised?!

    Hello Ladies – I’m back from the most amazing weekend ever!

    Couldn’t believe it whan I saw these comments through my iphone – but couldn’t get onto the blog to read what Adam had posted! Haha – so you all know me + my vices perhaps a little too well now!

    Bless him, it’s quite disturbing that my friends and Adam are all such good liars – I had no idea what was going on Thurs when my friends gave me my very own Love Actually moment…awesome!

    I feel truly blessed to know such a wonderful bunch of women – real ‘girls, girls’ and for them to have made such an effort, along with my gorgeous man to give me such a wonderful send off to married life!

    Thanks to you all too – for embracing Adam and his (perhaps slightly crass) post and also for encouraging him to go and buy his suit! No sign of it however *sigh*

    Lots of love to you all. Boho Bride xxx

    ps normal postings to resume tomorrow xxx

    Adam, you are amazing! I think that your post was such a lovely thing to do,so thoughtful and very romantic! (You know Dev is going to make fun of it though) But I think it’s lovely!

    Please do go and get a suit and reduce Sarah’s stress, it’s really not that hard. ; )

    We had a lovely time away and I hope Sarah you weren’t worrying about everyone, as we all had fun, hope you did yoo!

    Love you both loads and its ok our carpet is nearly back to normal ; ) You are welcome round anytime, minus the red wine.

    Love this post. Thank you Adam. But it has reminded me that if Mr ESC (also Adam) gets round to bending down on one knee then to change the password on my blog asap!!! Hope you had fun Sarah. xxx

    I love this -Please sneak on to Sarah’s blog and write mote surprise entries -it’s like a sneaky insight into how my fiance might feel about me come my hen-do (hopefully -seriously, I think he’s more worried about not having his own stag sorted yet).

    Brilliant -sarah, you are on to a winner with Adam and you both write brilliantly with such entertaining results for the reader :-)

    Hope you had a fab hen-do and I look forward to more of your own brilliant posts from the Boho Bride herself!

    Hi Becky, thanks so much for your lovely comment – Ads is so chuffed with the reaction he’s had…I think he’ll be trying to take over more often.

    It’s Adam who does all the technical stuff for me on the blog -I’m sure he likes to have a good read of all the wedding-ness on the quiet!!!

    I had an amazing hen do thanks – I’m such a lucky girl! Hope your plans are going well xxx
