“Hens nights, hens partys, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, hen dos and even a girls night out are just some of the names used to describe the all important pre wedding celebrations between the bride-to-be and her bestys.
The Maid Of Honour
Being asked to be the Maid of Honour is such a privilege and one of your most important responsibilities will be planning the “perfect” hens party! Being responsible for planning the hens party can often lead to a stressful time for the Maid of honour, but don’t worry, with our help you’ll have the happiest Bride-To-Be on the planet..… and probably a sore head the morning after the hens party. It’s your choice!
So What is a Hens Party?
Depending on where you live, you may use the term Bachelorette Party, Bridal Shower, a Hen Do, a hens nite or even a Hag Night. The Hens Party is designed to celebrate the marriage and act as a “last night of freedom” for the bride-to-be.
Hens Partys are usually hosted in the evening 2 or 3 weeks before the wedding day. These days it’s not uncommon for a Hens Party to run for a full day with any number of guests attending all or just some of the planned events, depending on their suitability. For example booking a stripper at lunch time when granny is there may not be the best idea and better saved until after she has gone home.
Hens Parties are often hosted in public venues, these may include dinner in a restaurant followed by a pub-crawl or a big night hitting the clubs. That said though, if the bride-to-be just prefer to put the feet up, pour a glass of her favourite relaxing red and stay where it’s warm and comfortable then that’s ok too, it’s her night.
A Great Idea for a Hens Party
As the organiser of the hens party you can be as creative as you like when it comes to exactly what your ladies will do. If you’re looking for something exciting and memorable whilst at the same time being slightly risqué, then life drawing is just the thing.
