Jun 7 2024 Share

A local bride-to-be has been seen at the Malta International Airport dressed in an actual hen costume ahead of her hens party somewhere outside of Malta.

The local was joined by her 6 other best friends and will embark on a party she will surely never forget.

The woman’s costume was not the only accessory that joined her on her trip but also a plushie soft toy of a chick to go with the chicken/hen theme and a small inflatable toy of what we can only believe to be her groom and future husband.

The team at Malta Daily wishes her the best hens party and wedding possible and also our admiration as it mustn’t have been a comfortable plane journey in the costume.
