Vintage hen air hostesses

We're flying high today with this fab real life hen party submission from Zara Peters. Taking the theme of vintage air hostesses and coming up with an airline name called 'Fly Bry' (after the bride to be) we thought was both clever and cool but then having the hen party in Paris? Oh La la indeed! Here's how Zara and the hens took their vintage style hen party, sky high, for bride to be Bryony.

Each of the hens were asked to wear a plain white shirt and navy blue pencil style skirt. The two bridesmaids Zara and Verity then sourced hats (a captain hat for the bride to be — Bryony) and some vintage silk scarves from Spitalfields market in London.

 An airline name of 'Fly Bry' was devised, after the bride to be — Bryony — and friends set to work using the Pan Am logo, to make a new logo for the hen do — complete with printed stickers.

Each hen had a sticker badge to wear and had 5 stickers for 'new recruits' (which turned out to be any guy in the vicinity of the hen do!). The Oh Happy Day blog provided inspiration for an Eiffel Tower costume which was then made by one of the bridesmaids for the bride to be.

Hand painted Oh La La t-shirts to wear once in Paris completed the rather cool look.

After a hen party this great, it was fab to see beautiful Bryony on her wedding day on Saturday wearing a gorgeous Candy Anthony 50's style wedding dress. Many congratulations to the happy couple and thank you to Zara for sharing with us these wedding day snaps.
