Smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! is a must-see during your wedding planning - and not just for its sing-along tunes!
Planning the hen party? Smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! is the ultimate night-out for a bride-to-be and her girls, offering something for everyone in the bridal party.
And actually, it doesn't end once the curtains have closed - there are moments from the show that every member of your wedding party can relate to...
#1 That moment when you realise you've found The One.
And you're getting married to them! How lucky are you? A life-time of wedded bliss lies ahead for the two of you - but first, wedding planning...
#2 You immediately grab a pad and pen to start making your ideal guest list.
This is your wedding and you’re going to invite who you want…even if it does involve a dramatic genetic revelation. It’s certainly going to be a trip down the aisle nobody will forget.
#3 That moment when the mums form a super-group
Your aunt has also become very involved in your wedding planning, so together, they're an unstoppable trio, affectionately nicknamed The Dynamos - and prone to wearing matching catsuits and bursting into spontaneous renditions of Super Trouper. And in a way they are super troupers, you suppose, a little begrudgingly, what with them accepting your challenge to handmake 50 yards of bunting, 200 hessian heart favours and 300 paper pom-poms.
#4 That moment when you and your girls walk into your hen party venue.
Party! Music! Dance on the chairs! You’re not bothered about what order they occur in, just so long as your besties are there having the #bestnightever 'cause that’s the Name of The Game!
#5 That moment when the groom-to-be and his boys go matchy-matchy for the stag do.
Whether it's matching hoodies, nickname-adorned T-shirts or, as in this case, identical scuba-diving gear, matching stag-do attire is an essential.
#6 That moment when one of the ushers starts getting flirty.
Love is in the air and he's decided it's the perfect time to try out that chat-up line he over-heard the other day. His intentions are good but his delivery is, er, cringe, and the whole thing ends in hilarity for everyone watching. Full marks for effort though!
#7 That moment on your wedding morning when you spend a few quiet minutes with your parents.
It's one of the sweetest times on your wedding day - only made awkward if you've only just discovered your dad is, er, your dad. Oh.
#8 That moment when the photographer tells you all to say 'cheese...'
You're married! And all your guests followed your strict pink-or-yellow dress code! This in itself is exceptional, so make sure you capture the moment with a gorgeous group photo.
#9 That moment when the knot has finally been tied and it’s time to really celebrate.
No one can quite believe the day is finally here, the ouzo, sunshine and sentiment has got everyone in the mood. Now would be the perfect time for a medley mash-up of your favourite songs to get everyone on the dancefloor, no? And to tell people from point #3, Thank You For The Music…
