It’s always a fun time when you have to organise a hen do for your best friend. After all, you can’t wait to give her one last night of freedom. But organising a hen do is a lot harder than you think. It can be a challenge to make sure everything is all planned and sorted, and everyone turns up in time; especially the guest of honour! And while most of us often dwell on the main things such as the location of the hen and the activities, it’s often the small things which make the biggest difference. Therefore, don’t forget these little details which will make your friend’s hen unforgettable.

A selection of fun games to play
If you are heading somewhere abroad for the hen do, there might be some downtime in between activities. And unless you want the hens to get bored, you should organise some fun games which will bring on the giggles. Playing games is also an excellent way for the hens to bond. It can break the ice for people who don’t know each other. Of course, you should try and make the games to do with the bride..
A special gift for the bride to be
It’s always good to treat the bride to be. After all, the hen is all about her, so you want her to feel rather special. Therefore, you should get a gift for the bride to be that she can keep as a reminder of the hen. You might want to get her a guestbook which is signed with a special message from each of the hens. Or you could go for a photo album which she can fill with pictures of the hen do. And you might want to get her some of her favourite things. For example, if she loves cheese, you could get her something related such as cheese hampers. Or if she is fond of a particular band, you could get their latest CD or a poster for her to keep!
A funny clothes theme
Once you have decided what you all will be doing for the hen, you need to think about what you will all wear. After all, a lot of hens all wear a particular colour or theme when they attend a hen. For example, you might want to go for a superhero theme, so everyone has to dress up in costumes. Or you might want all the hens to wear red while the bride stands out in white! Choose a funny clothes theme in advance to ensure your friend’s hen stands out!
Cute little invites
You also need to ensure all the hens have an invite with all the relevant details. For one thing, it’s something they can keep forever. And also, it will ensure they don’t turn up late or at the wrong destination. And as this feature explains, you might want to keep a note of the girl’s contact numbers just in case they don’t turn up!
And remember to get gift bags for the hens. That way, they all have something cute to take home to celebrate their attendance. You can find ideas of what to put in online.
