Popular hen party ideas:
hen weekend/hen party abroad (book a stylish or unique hotel and make a weekend of it!)
hen party bus (check out London’s world-famous landmarks while feeling like a VIP in a fully decked-out party bus)
spa weekend (is there anything better than an indulgent pamper session with your BFFs?)
cocktail masterclass (hire a master mixologist for a classy hen do)
1950s themed champagne afternoon tea (mismatched vintage teacups and pretty cakes are perfect for a bride with a retro fixation)
hen party boat cruise along the Thames (there’s no better backdrop than the capital itself for a chic cocktail party)
nude life drawing (ditch the male stripper and opt for a life-drawing class with a very handsome and very naked young lad instead)
clubbing (make the bride feel like a true A-lister by hiring a private room in one of London’s hottest clubs or hen party bars)
Usually arranged by the maid of honour, hen dos are often more personal and intimate than stag nights. Want to plan a stress-free hen party but aren’t quite sure where to start? These tips and tricks will help you pull off a perfect night:
ask the bride-to-be what she has in mind and who she’d like to be there (does she want a big booze-filled bash or a relaxed luncheon?)
set a budget and ask the bridesmaids to chip in equally (your budget should be realistic while still showing that you’re making a special effort for the bride-to-be)
decide whether you want to set a theme or make it fancy dress, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box
set a date a couple of weeks before the wedding and give invitees plenty of advance notice
think about the location as well as the type of venue you need (are you looking for a comedy club, cabaret lounge or nightclub?)
plan activities, games or dares that will appeal to the entire group
organise taxis or minibuses to take the group from one location to another
add a personal touch (organise personalised hen party t-shirts with nicknames, serve the bride-to-be’s go-to cocktail or ask the DJ to play her favourite song)
provide each of the hens with a survival kit for a fun variation on the traditional party favour
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
