How to Go About Planning for a Hen Party

in Fun


Hens tend to look forward to celebrating their last night of freedom mainly because it is one last chance for them to say goodbye to being single. In many countries, it is considered part of tradition. So, any bride-to-be that will be tying the knot soon gets to party one last time with her closest girlfriends before the big day.

Now, for the one in charge of planning for everything, the task may seem too difficult and time consuming. However, it does not have to be that way. For those that need more hen party ideas, here are some things to consider as well as some ideas to make the evening a lot more fun.

Have a Themed Party

A themed party will be a lot of fun especially if all the guests are willing to dress up for the occasion. There are a lot of popular hen party themes to choose from, but one can always just choose a particular theme that the bride-to-be and the guests will enjoy dressing up for.

Choosing a theme before anything else makes it a lot easier to choose everything else. The invitation, decorations, and accessories can all be based on the chosen theme.

The Date and Venue

Determining the best date for the party will be important. Choosing the right venue is just as important. Though a lot of organizers would think it more fun to have the party elsewhere, that will limit the amount of guests that can actually go.

Though a hen weekend might seem like a great idea initially, not everyone can just take a weekend off especially those that have to work during weekends or those that already have families. That’s why it is vital to choose a date that will be convenient for all the guests and a venue that is accessible for them. So, make sure to have all of that set and send out invitations in advance.

Fun Activities and Games

Parties are usually not complete without some games and that is true for hen parties as well. Every organizer should make an effort to include some fun and games into the mix. If everyone is having fun, the whole occasion will definitely be memorable for the celebrant and all her guests.

Hen party games do not necessarily have to be so wild. They just have to be fun. Since the idea of fun is rather subjective, one should make sure to include games that everyone will be willing to play.

If the occasion will be for one whole day, adding certain daytime activities can make sure that everyone is in the mood to party when the evening comes. The day can be spend shopping with a fashion consultant, relaxing at the spa, or taking fun dance lessons. It will all depend on what the celebrant enjoys doing.

For hen weekends, including some daytime activities becomes a “must” to make sure that not a single minute goes to waste. Also, those activities can help build up the momentum for a fun and unforgettable hen night.
