Your friend or your sister is getting married! You’ve been asked (or volunteered) to plan the hens party – a special occasion to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. It can be overwhelming, but with the right planning and organisation, you can throw an amazing hens party that your friend will cherish for years to come. Here are some tips on how to make it happen.
Decide on a Theme:
Choosing a theme for your hens party can help make the entire event much more fun and memorable. Whether you choose to go all out with decorations, costumes, and activities or simply pick a color scheme, having an overarching theme will give your celebration that extra special touch.
Set the Date and Time:
It’s important to choose a date and time that works for both the bride-to-be and all of her guests. Take into account everyone’s schedules before making a final decision, as well as potential travel times or any other conflicts.
Create an Event Invitation:
Once you’ve chosen a date, it’s time to create an invitation for the event. This can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like it to be – from sending out personalised emails or printed cards, to using a website or app to keep everyone organised and in the loop.
Choose Your Venue:
Whether you prefer to host at home or venture out, selecting your venue is one of the most important decisions when it comes to planning a hens party. Consider what will make your venue perfect for the occasion – from location, to space and amenities, as well as any extra fun activities or experiences you can incorporate into your event.
Decide on Food and Drinks:
What’s a party without food and drinks? Select an array of snacks and appetizers, as well as drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for the event. You can even tailor these to match your theme or color scheme if you’d like.
Choose some fun activities that are tailored to the bride-to-be’s interests. This could range from a spa day to a karaoke night, or anything in between. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even plan some outdoor activities like canoeing or hiking.
Gifts and Favors:
Many hens parties involve exchanging small gifts with the bridal party. Choose something that fits the theme, such as special monogrammed pajamas or small tokens of appreciation. You can also hand out party favors as a way to thank your guests for attending. Make sure to get the bride-to-be something special to make her stand out like a different coloured sash or a crown.
Keep in mind your hen!
Above all else, make sure that the bride-to-be is at the center of your planning. This is her day, so take into consideration what she would enjoy most and plan accordingly. If she’s shy or conservative, don’t plan anything too saucy that would make her uncomfortable. But if she is the saucy type, don’t be afraid to go all out and have some wild fun!
Make sure there’s plenty of time for the bride-to-be to mingle, catch up with old friends, and enjoy her special day. Keep the focus on her and make sure she feels like the center of attention at all times.
Let your creativity run wild and you’ll have an unforgettable celebration.
Happy henning! 🎉 💃
