Organising a Hen party is no joke. Among the other wedding preparations, most hen’s weekend plans take a backseat. As a result, most parties turn into a drunken extravaganza.

While some women may be enticed by the idea of partying away the last weekend of their single life, hen parties have recently evolved into much more. From healthy hen parties to offbeat getaways, there are plenty of unusual activities to choose from.

Get Creative

If the bride has a knack for creativity, the options are endless. From simple cooking classes to learning to make cocktails, the ladies will be spoilt for choice when it comes to spending a relaxing afternoon, learning something new.

Vintage Pamper Party

Does the bride have a thing for everything retro? A vintage pamper party would be ideal in that case. A day spent sipping cream tea and catching up on gossip, while professional stylists turn you into vintage icons- that’s the very definition of a day well spent!

Spa Weekend

Few ladies can ever turn down a relaxing spa weekend. Exotic roman baths, tantalising massages, rejuvenating makeovers, few things can match up to this kind of perfection. If you are looking for a weekend filled with nothing but pampering, a spa getaway would be ideal.

Home Hen Party

When it comes to having a good time with the girls on a budget, there is no place like home. If you’re worried that things might get a little dull, call in the professionals! From an elaborate dinner to life painting nude models, make it happen right at the comfort of your home.


Before wrapping up, I’d like to remind you that a hen party is all about the bride. Make sure everything is centred around her preferences and your hen’s do will be remembered for all the right reasons.
