Should you invite older group members to the hen do?
Tricky one to answer, as it comes down to a few factors.
If you have a wide range of ages between family members it might reduce the options of hen party activities you can take part in. For example, would the grandma want to go and try the active bubble mayhen, probably not.
Also, you might have a few personally clashes from younger friends and older aunties. Everyone sees life differently, but you surround yourself with people you know and like. If you bring 15 ladies of different ages together, who don't know each other, then be prepared to for potentially a few conflicts.
So what to do?
You know your group better than others, so speak to them and get a feeling for it. Remember you don't want any hassle or issues on the weekend, it's all about the bride to be having a fabulous time.
Maybe have two hen parties, one for just friends of similar ages to the bride and another for everyone, so family feel part of it and get to know everyone before the wedding day.
