Regarding Hen Do?

Going to a hen weekend of a much younger soon to be bride and details are starting to emmerge. Seems there are activities planned, dressing up as schoolgirls, special t shirts being printed and starting to dread what else the MOH has planned. Don't want to be an old party pooper and be all cats bum face but this is really not my thing at all especially being about 20 yrs older than the main younger guests.

AIBU and just being an old bore and how can I get through this without lookinglike a cross between a St Trinians school girl and Baby Jane - basically looking like a sad old git!

Sorry I didn't mean the ladies looked hideous I meant the event.

I had misgivings similar to yours before a hen do. I went, and tried to play along, it was embarrassing. I actually had to demur from an "activity" because I just couldn't bear the thought of playing a game like that in a semi-public place. And I was the same age as everyone there. I can be as raunchy as anyone else but only with close friends and certainly not out and about.

It's much more awkward to be there and sort of opting out--like you'll be the only one not dressing up or you'll just sit there whilst the "activities" happen?

Just don't go! Send a nice gift and tell them to have fun.

Looks like the organisers are keeping it all secret which is annoying. If I'm going to give up a weekend with my family, travel hours to get there and spend a fair amont of money - then I at least want to know the itinerary and whatbis planned etc.

am definitely going and will have a great time - just don't want to bump gums with the organisers. If We know what'd planned up front then boring older nes can politely opt out rather than leave it till the day.

Op I was going to suggest dressing up as the teacher smile
Don't think I'd be thrilled at the prospect of spending the weekend away with planned activities I haven't got a clue about til we get there.
