Who should I invite to my hen party?

Organising a hen party can be almost as stressful as organising the wedding! Everybody wants to get involved and lots of people have lots of different opinions on what you should do. If you are not one of the lucky brides-to-be who have managed to palm this stressful task off onto your maid of honour then you will want as much useful advice as you can get! We’ve come up with the perfect activities for when you ask yourself: who should I invite to my hen party?

One of the problems that a lot of people face when organising their hen party or weekend is whether or not to invite family along. Now, you may have the sort of family who are well up for anything so this won’t be an issue for you. However if, like most of us, your Gran is insisting on coming along but doesn’t want to hear any ‘blue language’ or see any nudity, then you may want to think about organising two separate parties.

You may think organising two hen parties will be added labour, but that is where you are wrong. Having a separate friend party and family party will make life so much simpler because of these reasons:

      • Your family may not have anything in common with your friends
      • Planning one night to suit lots of different people is a lot harder than organising two nights to suit two groups of people
      • If you embarrass easily and your friends plan something a little close to the mark you probably won’t want your Mum there

Here is a quick guide to help you organise two separate hen parties whilst keeping everybody happy and ensuring you as little stress as possible!

Who should I invite to my hen party? Party with your friends

You are more than likely going to want to party with your friends.  Your friends are also going to want a lot of involvement in the organising of this, mainly so they can assure that some usual hen party antics are in place. If you want to keep your family separate from this you must make sure that whoever is handling the invites knows this. If it is you who is dealing with the guest list make sure that you let everybody understand the deal so that nobody feels left out.
