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.
Whenever the bride wants to have one! A hen party is a pre-wedding event, and all the wedding planners and experts recommend throwing such an event sometime between 3 months to 2 weeks before the wedding. If you struggle to pick the ideal date, consult the bride and later with all the guests whom she would like to have at the party. That way, you’ll ensure that everyone can save the date and honour the bride-to-be!
Well, it is possible! But we always recommend looking for a venue at least 2 months before the party takes place. It will give you enough time to compare the offers, think them through, and pick the ideal one at the desired price range. Also, booking early will ensure that you’ll get a much better hire price, as generally, the closer you book to the date of an event the higher are venue-hire prices.
London is teeming with fantastic hen party venues! Soho is home to many legendary nightlife spots where you can easily find a great live music venue or a clubhouse. Shoreditch with its edgy side is famous among the hipsters that flock there to hit up famous bars, restaurants and themed events. In upscale Mayfair you will find the best cocktail lounges and excellent bars with fantastic decors. Camden Town is also worth mentioning for its array of live music venues and eclectic bars and restaurant options.
Generally, it depends on the venue type you will choose. In restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. expect costs around £40 to £100+per person. It is also possible to hire on a basis of minimum spend, and prices in London range between £250 to £1500+. But don’t hesitate to ask venue managers for individual offers, as well as discounts. And if you’re working with a limited budget, here’s a pro tip that may help you save some extra money: some venues slash their rates during off-peak times, so it’s worth checking out when your first-choice venue has a low season!

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.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
