How to plan a hen party at home

Follow our top tip guide to creating the best possible hen party for the bride-to-be…

Create the best possible hen party for the bride-to-be…

Talk to your hen about what she wants from her special day and make sure all her best friends are invited.

Consider your budget and either rent a beautiful property for the day/weekend or host the party in your own home. Renting a house for the hen party means you can choose how many rooms you need, and you can opt for a hot tub or pool!

Arrive in style and arrange a limo to bring each hen to the house party; or arrange a sneaky night out to your nearest nightclub.

Themes are great for getting everyone in the party vibe. You can go ‘old skool’ and recreate teenage weekends with a giant ‘sleepover’. Or, opt for a stylish dress code, such as diamonds, or feathers and leather.

Decorate the house with fun pictures of the bride-to-be from childhood and all your happy memories together. Get other hens to bring their favourite photo of them and the bride to the party too.

Prepare some fun games for all the hens to play. Opt for classics such as truth or dare, spin the bottle and Twister.

Everyone needs a cocktail at a hen party, so why not invite a mixologist over to your house to teach you how to make the perfect pina colada or mojito?

Hen nights need to be fun and memorable! Hire in a team of  cheeky ‘buff butlers’ to serve your drinks!

Bring out the inner sex-goddess and learn a few burlesque routines with your best buddies. You could also arrange to have the routine filmed for a unique keep sake from the hen party.

After all the excitement the hens will need some rest and recuperation. Pamper sessions are a great way to unwind and recover from the previous night’s indulgences. Hire in a masseuse or buy in face packs and lay back and relax.
