Bridal Party! #Mykonsloss
Our stunning bride Eliza Sloss was whisked away to Mykonos (hence the hashtag) on her hen do. We got to hear all the hot gossip....
Tell us about your hen do…
Well I have to be honest, I seeded the idea of going to Mykonos as I’d never been before and had heard great things about it (“The new Ibiza” people say). I was delighted when my hens took on the task with both hands. My bridesmaids then arranged everything. They even came up with a hashtag for the weekend, which I strongly recommend for collating all the photos from the event.
Where did you go?
We started off with an evening meal at Interni Restaurant, which was amazing – a really cool vibe and quite lively for a restaurant. They play really good house music so it really set us off. My hens asked me to do a speech, and (very unlike me) I was unexpectedly overcome with emotion – just feeling so grateful that all of my friends had travelled all this way to share such a special time with me. A few tears were shed!
The next day we headed to Scorpios an incredibly beautiful beach club, flanked by the biggest yachts I’ve seen. We had a delicious lunch and then went on to have cocktails there as the music stepped up a notch. We actually asked to book some beds for the next day, but were told the whole place was fully booked for a wedding – for a Victoria's secret model and an Egyptian Prince no less!
A swift change and we headed out for the night. We have something of a tradition in our group of friends that on one night, the bride wears white when all the other hens where black which is a fun nod to a hen do, without being tacky. We had a late supper at Ling Ling Hakasan which was stunning inside – the girls even persuaded the DJ to play my favourite track and take to the decks in the booth. We followed this with drinks at Bonbonniere and then Queen which played the best music – and it’s quite popular so people spill out into the pretty white streets to dance.
Any other tips for brides considering Mykonos?
Be warned, if you’re staying on the edge of the main town the streets are very steep! There are only 35 taxis on the island as it’s quite small, and no cars are even allowed in the centre of the town – so there’s quite a bit of walking required. So be careful what shoes you pack.
And stay hydrated so you can avoid the horrors of a delayed flight!
