Are you organising a hen party? Are you overwhelmed with the responsibility? Well, that’s why we’re here!
If you have been given the honour of organising your friend’s hen party, you may think it’s all too much. Where should I start? Where should I have it? Who should I invite? Should I Hire a limo or not?
But in reality, all you really have to do is be organised and know exactly what type of hen party your friend would like.
Your first job is to get an idea of what type of activities your friend would most enjoy and to do some research. That’s the fun bit! Now the real really nitty gritty begins…
Make a list with contact details of all the people the hen wants there.
Then, get in touch with them as soon as you can.
Location, time and transport
Holding the hen night on the night before the wedding might be what we hear in films, but in reality it’s just not practical.
A month or two before the wedding is the perfect time. Combining it with the night of the stag Evening would be even better.
If you’re planning to invite older friends or relatives, you might consider choosing a venue that everyone feels comfortable in. This can be accomplished by setting up various stages in the evening – such as starting with a Meal, and then the younger ones can go off clubbing.
Remember to be very organised. Keep your booking itinerates safe and print out a few copies of your activity and meal bookings as these include important pieces of information which you will need.
Sort out your transport early! It’s best to hire a limo or car to take the stress out of your evening. This way, you can have a drink too.
Why not hire for a girly pink limo and get some champagne for the journey?
Budgets should be discussed as soon as possible in order to find something that caters to everyone’s monetary situation.
The costs should be divided amongst the group - don’t allow the bride to pay for anything or if you can, you may be able to send the bride for free through some special offers.
When sending a money request email, remember to include the username and password for the personal payment tracker so that your group members can pay individually.
What to do on the day
It wise to set up a kitty at the start to avoid the hassle of sorting out bills later.
You’ll probably be able to get a group discount if there are lots of people involved.
If you plan to go out drinking, make sure everyone drinks at a steady pace. This is why it’s a good idea to plan a meal as well in order to avoid anyone getting overly drunk and spoiling the celebrations.
