Have a hen party with a difference
Your hen party is an event you’ll never forget. It’s a chance to let your hair down with the girls, say goodbye to singledom and have a truly enjoyable night (or even weekend), and taking some time to choose your ideal activities is a must. Well, why not have a hen party with a difference? The night out might be obligatory and will often comprise a key part of the celebration, but you don’t have to stop there. There are plenty of other activities you might like to try, so we thought we’d put together a quick collection of weird and wonderful hen do ideas that are a bit different to the norm:
•The party bus. You could always put your names down on a club guest list, but why not have your very own exclusive club night? A party bus lets you party the night away on your own terms, coming complete with sound systems, proper décor and even a bar, and you could always head into town afterwards (or could return to the bus for an after-party…).
•The model photo shoot. Photo shoots are quickly growing in popularity for hen parties, and it isn’t hard to see why—you and your hens can strut your stuff on the catwalk and you’ll have plenty of photos taken too, giving you a fantastic activity with plenty of keepsakes.
•The jewellery making class. This is a great alternative to the ever-popular cocktail making session, letting your creativity run wild whilst giving you the chance to craft your own unique piece of jewellery—again, another great chance to have a memento of your special day.
•Wine tasting. Sleek, sophisticated and classy, wine tasting is ideal. Plus, it can be a great opportunity to kick start the night out with a few cheeky glasses of wine…
•Pole dancing lesson. A great way to really let your hair down, a pole dancing session could be the ultimate activity and is the perfect way to get your weekend started. You’ll have plenty of laughs and a whole lot of fun, or if pole dancing isn’t your thing there are plenty of other dance classes you might like to try instead.
•Paintballing. Perfect for hens that like more adventurous activities, a paintballing session will give those stags a run for their money. You could even combine the hen and stag dos—have a boys-versus-girls situation before both parties go their separate ways for the rest of the day, with a bit of competition being a great way to get the party started.
These are just a few ideas to get you going, and the choices don’t stop there. Let your imagination run wild to see what you can come up with, but of course, there’s one thing you’ll always need no matter what event you go for—the accessories! Hen party accessories are a must and will set the whole thing off, so remember to get everything from hen do badges to sashes and you can celebrate in style.
