If you’re planning a hen party for your best friend, sister or colleague it can send your head into overdrive. You want to plan something everyone will enjoy but you have to put the bride first. You may also have to be wary of the bride’s family members, possibly elderly family members. How can you possibly please everyone at once? Planning any kind of party will come with its stresses, but here’s a list of hen party ideas that everyone will love.

Going on a hen weekend doesn’t automatically mean you all have to dress in tutus and get drunk at clubs. If you’re dealing with a more reserved bunch, there are lots of creative thing you can do to have fun. Things such as clay modelling, knitting classes where you can make the wedding favours, life art where you get to draw a naked man and much more. The possibilities are endless.

It may just be that after all that wedding planning you all need to relax and unwind. There’s nothing like a spa weekend and few glasses of champagne to chill you out. Enjoy a facial, massage, a swim in the pool and some beautifully cooked meals. It’ll take all the stress those personalized wedding napkins made away.
This one is for the adrenaline junky hens that don’t mind a bit of mud. An assault course is the perfect idea for competitive bridesmaids. There’ll be nothing but smiles at the end and it’s a great bonding experience. It will force you to work as a team and you’ll all come out of it closer than ever. Other ideas include Go Karting, Archery and Clay Pigeon Shooting.
Is your bride a vintage lover? Throwing a vintage hen party could be just up her street. Think afternoon tea with cake, ice-cream, sparkling wine and sandwiches. You could include some vintage dollies, handkerchiefs and tea cups that everyone can take home with them.

If your bride is a bit cheeky but she isn’t much of drinker, a pole dancing class could be ideal. It’s a chance for all the girls to have a giggle while doing their best to master the pole. You may even learn some moves to take home with you. I wouldn’t go investing in a bedroom pole just yet though.
You may have some dare devils amongst you that you need to please. In that case, you may want to think about a race track day. You’ll have a safety brief when you arrive and you may be driven around the track first to get your bearings. Then it’s a race to finish to see which one of you can get the fastest lap time.

When worst comes to worst and you can think of anything else, put a glass of wine in everyone’s hand and then lead them to the bar. Nine times out of ten, if you’ve got alcohol and a dance floor, you really can’t go wrong.
