Hen parties are exciting, entertaining and hilarious pit-stops in the build-up to any wedding. It’s a time for your bride-to-be to celebrate her last days of freedom with her best friends and family members. So, the more mischief and mayhem, the better.
Whether you’re arranging a crazy night out; flying somewhere hot for the weekend; or organising a full day of quirky activities, it’s your duty to make sure everyone feels welcome and involved.
What’s the easiest, cheapest and funniest way to do this? Hen party nicknames.
Hen do names are a cherished hen party ritual that you’ve probably seen beautifully emblazoned — or splattered in diamantes — across a hen’s chest many times on nights out. Ranging from cheekily hilarious to obscenely erotic; give everyone a hen party name and you instantly make them feel part of the team. But just how do you find the perfect hen do name for everyone?
We’re here to help. Our ultimate guide to the best hen party nicknames takes you through each step of the process to find, create and show off your hen name idea.
How to show off your hen party nicknames
There are tonnes of personalised items out there that you can use to show off your hen party names in style (otherwise, what’s the point?).
Many hens like their names loud, proud and on display with a customised hen party vest or t-shirt. If there’s a film, drink or character the soon-to-be bride absolutely loves, you can make it extra special for her with a vodka, Disney, superhero, or Dirty Dancing themed t-shirt.
Not sure about a customised top? Personalise a bunch of hen party sashes with your hen do name, place and date to get something you can easily slip on and off throughout the night.
If you’ve organised an action-packed day doing some outdoor activities, don’t worry. You can keep the nickname fun flowing with customised hoodies for everyone!
Fun hen do names are an essential part of the experience and are sure to get plenty of attention, and maybe even a few free drinks to keep the night lively and entertaining! Even better, you can all keep them as souvenirs to wear around the house afterwards. A great way for the bride-to-be to remember the event long after the wedding.
Extra essentials you need for the perfect hen do experience
Once you’ve got the perfect artistic canvas to advertise your hen party names, don’t go letting yourself down in the decoration and entertainment departments.
Here’s a quick list of essentials to keep the party atmosphere soaring:
- Cheeky drinking accessories; mainly jazzy shot glasses and saucy straws
- Outfit glamour; like wings, wands and tutus
- Glittery headwear; such as hats and boppers
- What party doesn’t have balloons?
How to make the most of your hen party nickname idea
It makes zero sense if each member of your hen squad is wearing a personalised t-shirt or vest with her own hen party name on it and nothing else. You want, need and should tell people exactly what these names are for.
When you’re customising your top, make sure you add the bride-to-be’s name and date of the event. You could have something like: ‘Lucy’s Hen Party 2016’ on the front and the hen do nickname on the back, just so you’ve covered all bases. Or why not include a little phrase you and the girls like to say if there’s space?
The whole point of a hen party name is to make the special day/night/weekend as entertaining and hilarious as possible — making sure that everyone feels included in the fun and remembers it with a smile for years to come.
