All great weddings start with a spectacular hen party. And, if you’ve been given full control over organising the hen, you’re in luck! We’ve put together six important hen party ideas in order to make it a night to remember. Here is your ultimate hen party checklist.
1. Set a budget
As soon as you know how many people will be coming to the hen party, set a strict budget in place. This budget will need to cover activities, transport, props, and any other additional items. Once you’ve got a clear idea of a budget, try your absolute hardest to stick to it and not stray away. Hen parties can be expensive when you’re not sensible – the last thing you want is to have no money left for the big day!
2. Take hints from the bride
One of the most exciting things about planning a hen party is keeping it a surprise from the bride. However, 90% of the time, the bride will have a rough idea in mind as to what they want to do. Listen to them carefully right from the get-go, and you’ll be sure to get some inspiration for when it comes to choosing an activity.
3. Find the perfect location
Once you’ve got some hints from the bride, it’s time to find the perfect location for the hen party. This should be pretty simple once you have an activity in mind, but if you’re just going for drinks, then be sure to choose a popular location. Busy cities like London are perfect for hen parties; there are so many pubs and clubs to choose from!
4. Get the props!
You’ve got the budget, you’ve got the location. Now it’s time to get the props! Hen party props can range from classy to funny; the choice is yours. You could even get personalised props to make the hen party more memorable – custom printed hats are the perfect choice for those who want a fun keepsake from the night.
5. …And the personalised clothing
Speaking of personalised keepsakes, why not go the extra mile and get personalised t-shirts, too? With so many colours to choose from and complete freedom to design them how you like, all members of the hen party will feel their very best. Personalised t-shirts will make finding each other while out a piece of cake – and they’ll be a great talking point with everyone you meet on the way.
If you’ve decided to plan an adventurous hen do which involves being outside, then opt for a custom hoodie instead; they’ll provide far more warmth while still embracing the fun.
6. Get the show on the road
One of the most important things on your checklist should be your mode of transport. Be sure to book a suitable transport option for the number of women embarking on the hen party – popular options include minibuses and coaches. Booking a transfer will mean you don’t have to worry about missing the last train too, so the party really can go on until the early hours!
As a general rule of thumb, book your transport in plenty of time to avoid disappointment on the day of the hen. It’s important to get everything running like clockwork and transport will play a huge part in this.
