This bride-to-be had a Mayo themed hen in the middle of Dubai

When it comes to a hen weekend, picking the right theme is key.

While something retro-inspired or ‘girls on tour’ are always solid go-tos, there’s a lot to be said for picking something a little closer to home.

Or why not just use home as your theme, like Laura Evans did for her hen weekend?

Leaving Mayo back in 2009 for a new life in Dubai, Laura always held the homeland close to heart even from thousands of miles away.

Well, being the good friends they are, her hens decided to bring a little bit of Mayo to Dubai for Laura’s big weekend and the pictures are just lovely.

Getting suspicious when many of her friends started turning up wearing red, Laura was delightfully surprised when all was revealed when they boarded their own private yacht for the day.

“Laura was the only Mayo woman among us, and there were some of the girls from other counties who were a little resistant to the theme, but they all obliged in the name of keeping the bride happy,” hen and friend of the bride, Órla Derrane told Her.

The girls had an amazing time out on the water drinking champagne, taking in the sights and shouting “Mayo for Sam”, which we’re sure raised a few eyebrows in the middle of Dubai.

Mayo Footballer, Aidan O’Shea, even took notice, retweeting the hilarious images on Twitter.
