1. Go Glamping
Some of the glamping tents or pods are absolutely amazing and they look so damn cosy! It’s a perfect way to get the girls together for a night under a canopy of stars, telling stories and reminiscing on the good times. Perfect for a spring / summer hen party and available for around £80 – £120 per night. If you’re on a real budget, why not throw a quirky blanket over the washing line, throw down some blankets, add some cushions and stay up late with the girls, telling funny stories, playing pranks and doing dares! The ‘bride to be’ will certainly have a hen party to remember!
2. Have a Slumber Party
If you’re on a budget, a sleepover is a great way to get everyone together. Provide some alcohol, some nibbles, some pamper essentials and some games and you’re away to go! Don’t forget your pajama’s and you’ll be in for a night of laughs and giggles!
3. Have a Spa Day
4. Host a Crafts Night
Hosting a crafts night can be so much fun and whatever you make, you can then use it to decorate the wedding venue. Whether it’s candles, paper flowers or invitations. Get creative on the hen do and help the bride get organised for her big day. If she’s planning to make a lot of things herself, she will really appreciate your help.
5. Have a Fondue Night
Chocolate is definitely a girls best friend and the bride to be wouldn’t be disappointed with this one! Why not get a list of ingredients such as strawberries, coconut macaroons, biscuits, melon, sponge cake, the list is endless! And enjoy a night of pure indulgence!
6. See a Fortune Teller
Why not see what the future has in store? Especially for the bride to be! Don’t give too much information away and just see what they have to say. This could be very interesting or just plain funny! Mix it up with some lunch and spend the afternoon sharing stories about your future fortune.
7. Have a Scavenger Hunt
Why not dress up and hit the town for a scavenger hunt! Divide the group into teams, and get them to race against each other but set an area limit so the group stays together. Make it simple, don’t over complicate it and you’ll have loads of fun with this one! Finish the day off with some drinks where you can share funny stories about how you found or didn’t find the items on the list.
8. Have a Private Shopping Experience
If you’re planning the hen night and know that the bride to be is still stressing about what bridesmaids dresses to choose, why not book in a private shopping experience. You may be unaware, but many of the high street retailers do this. After the shop closes, they invite you down for free to do a little private shopping. It’s really good as you get one on one advice from the retailers and they will help to find you the perfect outfits and accessories. Some retailers will even go as far as to provide champaigne and some nibbles! It’s a perfect way to alleviate some of the stress for the bride to be and you’ll all have great fun trying on lots of different outfits! Don’t forget the camera!
9. Take a Roadtrip
A roadtrip doesn’t have to be expensive, there are some stunning places in the UK such as York, Devon or the Cotswolds. If you’re a little bit more adventurous and prefer travelling a little further afield, why not take a roadtrip to Europe! You could even hire a campervan to save money on accomodation! Make sure you take a stash of CD’s so you and the girls can have a good sing-song to all the old classics and you’ll have a whale of a time!
10. Take a Class
This one can be as crazy as you want it to be. Why not book onto a pole dancing class and watch hysterically as the hens bust some moves on the pole. This will create lots of funny memories that the bride will remember forever. For those that are a little less wild at heart, why not book onto a cookery class or a cocktail making class.
11. Have a 1950’s photoshoot
We love the idea of a 1950’s photoshoot! You can choose any era really. Whether it’s the fifties or the eighties, why not book yourself in to have your hair and make up done and then hit the town with an ametuer photographer. This is bound to get the hens talking for years to come!
