Are you ready to party?

With lockdown lifting in the near future, there is certainly plenty to celebrate.

I cannot wait to get together with friends, catch up, celebrate missed occasions and just hang out with more than my household.

So with this in mind and your bestie’s bridesmaids duties calling, I thought it would be a good time to share some ideas to help you get planning!

Hen parties are a great way to bring friends together to celebrate getting married and with so many options out there, there is much fun to be had.

However, you may have never organised a hen party before, or even been to one, so they can seem a little daunting at first, but don’t worry I have some ideas and inspiration right here for you.

Hen parties can be as much or as little as you want! They can be a full weekend or a day or night. There are lots of options out there and whatever you choose to do, just make sure you have the Bride in mind. This will be one of her final moments as a single lady, with all her nearest and dearest, so make sure to make lots of memories.

A few things to consider:

  • Time – how long to do you want it to be?

  • Location – where will it be? Local, UK, abroad?

  • Accommodation – what type? A big house, hotel, airbnb?

  • Budget – how much can the guests afford without feeling anxious about it and what will be included in the price?

  • Activities – how many? What sort of things? What would the group and bride enjoy?

  • Food and drink – home cooked, self-catering, restaurant meals, cocktails, prosecco, drinks in and/or out ?

  • Decorations/theme – what colours, style or décor does the bride like? How can you bring elements of her into the hen party?

  • Extras – hen party book, Polaroid camera, butler in the buff, fancy dress and branded t-shirts.

There’s lots of ideas out there, so make sure you do your research via google, pinterest and blogs, think about the above tips to come up with a simple plan and work with your fellow bridesmaids to get started.
