Nowadays hen parties are becoming extravagant affairs. The thought of filling the weekend with action-packed and fun weekends, luxurious treats and cheeky entertainment can leave some hens wondering if all the extravagant spending is worth it. Your hen weekend or hen night shouldn’t leave you in doubt or worry rather a weekend you should look forward to with so much expectation and assurance that you will have a great fun weekend on your last night of freedom.
There are many ways to stretch your budget without compromising the quality of your hen night. Holding a girls night out is not a bad idea. Actually you can invite your friends and family to a girl’s night out and you add a bit of naughty actions by having a butler serve the drinks. This way the party will be packed with fun and excitement. However if the thought of having a butler wants to make you run a mile why not try having a dance class. This could be pole dancing, Bollywood or even Salsa and afterwards head up for a drink to complete the fun hen night.
Checklist for your hen night party
It is always best to have your hen night planning at least 2 months before, because you don’t want the hen night to be a flop and the hen feeling disappointed because it was left till the last minute.
2 months earlier
If the hen is not planning it herself, this is the time to ask the hen what exacting she wants her hen night to be like. Is it a night out in town, a weekend getaway or a day of fun at home or pampering weekend? Understand her level of fun night out and consider doing something she’s comfortable with. The next thing is the date. Never have a hen night on the wedding eve, it never works. After confirming the date with the bride, the next thing you should do is to write the guest list and confirm with the bride so that no one is left out. Maybe she wants only her very close friends and family so it’s important to confirm the list in order to respect her decision and invite accordingly.
Remember to make your reservations, location and possible activities early to avoid any disappointment and also send out email confirmation to all attendees to confirm their attendance.

A week before
