Hens Night Party Ideas

If you are about to get married, you surely want to celebrate the end of being single, but finding original ideas for bachelorette parties instead of going out for a few drinks is not so easy.

Before you arrive at the party or event, there are a couple of things you need to decide:

Number 1: how soon before the wedding do you want your bachelorette party? Too close to the wedding won’t give you time to get over a hangover and/or unwanted shaving, hair dyeing, or spray tanning. Too much before the wedding and the meaning of the event will be lost a bit, so probably a week or two before the wedding will be the right thing to do.

Number 2 – Who will you invite? It is not necessary to invite every woman or man who is invited to her wedding. Stick to eight or twelve fairly close friends and you won’t go wrong.

Number 3 – Who pays? If everyone pays for themselves, some of your friends may find a weekend in Rome a bit pricey, so think about that angle before you choose.

That out of the way, here are some suggestions:

Ideas for chicken night

Traditionally, the main bridesmaid hosts hen’s night, so if that’s you, check out what the hen would like to do for her special night.

Consider choosing a private venue, especially if you’re having bachelorette party games that can get rowdy. Uninvited guests don’t want a crowd of rowdy women to ruin their evening, so find a private room in a club or hotel where you can let your hair down.

If the budget is tight, you can have the party at your house or at the house of one of the other girls. A place with enough space for all of you to spend the night would be a good idea. Serve specialty cocktails and small snacks, perhaps with a theme like a kids’ tea party or similar. Vodka jellies always go down well!

Host some bridal shower games like Chink and Drink to break the ice. Make sure everyone has a drink and say the name of a group to “grunch and drink”; groups can be the bride’s family, the groom’s family, the bride’s co-workers, etc. If you want to make sure the bride pays a fine, you can yell “Suck and drink anyone who marries a guy named Paul (or whatever) in the next two weeks.” Make sure everyone gets a chance to chink and drink.

Other bridal shower games could include:

1. A wedding dress design contest. Provide plenty of white toilet paper, crepe paper, tape, staplers and if you have any spare tape or lace that would be nice. Divide the girls into teams and ask them to choose a model on which to create their wedding dress. Provide a prize.

2. How much do you know about the chicken competition? She will need to provide the answers to these questions a few days before.

3. How much does the bride know about the groom’s competition? Ask her to give you some family history and incidents from her childhood and adolescence to test the knowledge of the bride. Drink losses are traditional if she gets a wrong answer.

4. If you go to a club, how about some challenges that attract prizes or losses, like going up to a stranger and kissing them, asking them to dance or ask them to buy you a drink, or singing embarrassing karaoke songs?

Alternatively, you don’t need to have a loud and drunk gathering. Why not treat yourself to a day of pampering at a spa, have lunch at a country house or winery, or take part in an adventure sport like abseiling or tackling an assault course?

If the bride is feeling generous or her friends are quite well off, she could arrange a few days in, say, Paris or Amsterdam if she lives in Europe, New York or Boston for US residents.
