Organising a hen weekend or hen night is an important responsibility. The hen do will be talked about before the wedding, during and for years after, so the pressure is on to provide a quality hen party. However, there are some tips to help the hen party run more smoothly.

Tip 1

You need to decide how many ladies will be attending the hen bash. This is important because this influences what activities, accommodation and destination you’ll be able to do. A good number for a hen do is around the 10 – 12 mark, as this makes it easier to book accommodation and most hen activities work around these numbers. There is no point deciding to do a spa weekend for 25 ladies, as they’ll most likely be a lot of waiting around for treatments.

Tip 2

Next to decide is the date of the hen party, once decided stick to it. Ensure that you stay away from bank holiday weekends if possible, as most hotels and activities will either be filling up fast or charge double prices. If you’re going to a city with a racecourse, stay clear from race weekend, as accommodation will be limited. However stag and hen party organisers normally have accommodation pre booked so they will be able to find some that suits your hen party needs.

Tip 3

Now that you have a rough idea on numbers and decided on a date for the weekend, next is the budget. Speak to everyone to get a rough idea of their budget and then go for the average price. However, if the hen party is booked far enough in advance, this gives time for everyone to save up the money monthly. Just remember that everyone’s financial position is different and your job is to ensure that everyone has a good time. A really good idea to help take the pressure off yourself is to appoint a treasurer whose job is to collect the money from everyone ASAP. Set monthly or quarterly amounts and stick to it, as soon you’ll be paying for activities and accommodation.

Which activities to choose A Day at the Races

Head to the track for some serious horse racing betting and drinking or soak up the atmosphere in your Sunday best with a glass of champagne… the choice is yours! One of the best days you’ll ever have.

This is a brilliant activity for a hen party, as the races are throughout the day leaving the night for the serious fun. There are plenty of bars and smartly dressed men around to keep yourself entertained if betting is not for you. Perfect for the larger hen parties.

Cocktail Making Party

Love cocktails? Then learn how to make them like the professionals. The hen party will love this hen activity, as its not weather dependant, suits all ages and everyone learns something. Look for the cocktail making parties that included food and drink.

This is one of the best value cocktailing making packages around:

90 minute session glass of ‘bubbly’ on arrival welcome flavoured vodka shot history of the cocktail bar tools and skills balancing taste demo cocktails and tasting all guests shake up cocktails behind the bar including competition/games (each guest gets a minimum of 2 cocktails to make/drink) certificates for everyone PLUS half a margherita pizza and homemade potato wedges each to share Can-Can Party

Get yourself in the mood for a party with some good old fashioned high kicking Moulin Rouge style fun. The fabulously colourful can-can skirts that are provided as part of the package will really put you in the mood for fun and giggles.

You will learn a variety of basic can-can moves, tricks and routines that will come together in a full chorus line performance at the end of the party.

The can-can party is energetic, fun packed and suitable for all ages.

Bar & Club Queue Jumper Tickets

This is the perfect way to ensure that everyone sticks together on the stag night. Bar crawl tickets help to ensure that the whole party get in the venue by giving them advance notice of your arrival. These are relevantly cheap and add that extra little bit of fun for the weekend.
