Ahead of their highly anticipated nuptials, Michelle Keegan and her fiancé Mark Wright jetted off to different parts of the globe to celebrate their hen and stag party weekends. Actress Michelle stayed at a luxury hotel in Dubai – where Mark popped the question in 2013, and Mark set off with his friends and family to Las Vegas, where they partied poolside at Wynn Resort. We take a look at their his and her hotel choices…
Michelle and Mark recently celebrated ahead of their approaching nuptuals
Michelle was joined by 29 'hens' including her mum Jackie Thornton, former Coronation Street co-star Brooke Vincent and her old school friends for the celebrations in Dubai. The 30-strong group of ladies were welcomed into Grosvenor House for the special bash. With its two glittering 45-storey towers, no doubt Michelle and her girls instantly recognised the iconic landmark in the Dubai Marina.

The hotel features 749 spacious, contemporary guest rooms, suites, and apartments with signature Luxury Collection beds, large windows with spectacular views of the Marina, and on-call butler service in case their party was in need of more bubbles.
As well as fine dining, Michelle and her companions had luxurious spa treatments to enjoy
No doubt Michelle and her hens didn't need to venture far for sophisticated fun – the hotel is home to the world famous Buddha Bar, while Michelin-starred chef Patron Vineet Bhatia brings modern Indian cuisine into Indego's contemporary setting. Also at their fingertips was Ottomans, a multi-flavoured journey mixing the influences of the old Turkish tradition with the rich flavours of the Mediterranean.
While his other half headed to Dubai, Mark was whisked off to Las Vegas for his stag do
While Michelle went back to Dubai – even heading to the desert to "the exact same spot on the beach…where Mark was when he proposed to me", her future husband headed for the sun-soaked Wynn hotel in Vegas.
And the gents lapped up the luxuries of their own glamorous surroundings – the hotel is part of Wynn Resorts, which hold more Forbes Travel Guide Five Star awards than any other independent hotel company in the world. With award-winning restaurants and an entertainment offering that often draws in the celebrities, they also had plenty to keep them busy.
