A BRIDE-TO-BE who wanted a couple of drinks instead of a burlesque dance class, artisan gin tasting and weekend in Budapest has been branded selfish by her friends.
33-year-old Emma Bradshaw outraged her peers by requesting a hen party that was a simple night out without any flights, fancy dress, spa treatments or male strippers.
Joanna Kramer said: “I’ve known Emma for years, but this is really testing our friendship.
“The last time I was a bridesmaid I had to fly to Vegas, hire a convertible, and pay a deposit for a helicopter flight that everyone was too hungover to go on. Now that’s a hen do.
“A couple of drinks and a nightclub? Does she honestly think any of her friends will be happy with that? Where’s the commitment?
“I keep hoping she’ll say it’s just a joke, and of course we’re spending four days in Ibiza with a non-optional parasailing trip, but it seems she’s intent on making a mockery of a much-loved institution.”
Bradshaw said: “And also, would it be okay to have no penis-shaped balloons, straws, or deely-boppers? No? Too far? Too far.”
