Hens Night Ideas For Every Bride
If you’re like most brides, you are probably so preoccupied with your wedding planning that you are haven’t even given your bachelorette party a second thought. Also known as a hens night, this party should be a fun and memorable party that allows you to spend some quality time with your closest girlfriends before you say, “I do,” to the love of your life. Many times brides lose interest in hens’ night because in keeping with tradition, they feel that their hens’ night celebration has to centre on something that could be potentially damaging to their marriage. However, there are many ways to celebrate your upcoming nuptials, and here are a few ways to celebrate that won’t make you feel embarrassed to invite your mother and future mother-in-law to the party.
When it comes to a hens’ night, you can’t really go wrong with a movie night. It will give you an excuse to eat popcorn and candy, and do absolutely nothing except relax. Be sure to have several different movie options so that you can find a movie choice that will please everyone.
Who doesn’t like a relaxing trip to the spa? Because wedding planning takes so much time, many brides neglect to take the time to really pamper themselves. For this reason, a spa day could be just what the doctor orders. While at home spa days are fun for different occasions, for a hens’ party, considering taking a weekend trip to a spa so you and all of your friends have the chance to relax and feel pampered.
While it may seem unconventional, many brides are finding that instead of partying at their local club, they would rather spend time giving back to their community by volunteering at a women’s shelter or soup kitchen. It is a great way to use your time to do something that will actually benefit someone else.
You probably haven’t done one of these since high school, but it can be fun to rent a limo and have your appetizers, main course and dessert at three different locations. To add to the suspense, whoever plans the party should not tell the rest of the passengers the restaurants they’ve chosen for the party.
Surprise weekend away
Just about everyone loves surprises, and hens party surprises are no exception. Tell your friends to pack for a weekend trip, and don’t tell them what the destination is, instead tell them what kinds of clothes to pack. However, if you really don’t want them to figure out where they’re going, even if you’ve rented a beach house, you may want to throw them off by suggesting they back a canteen for hiking.
Depending on how close your hens’ night party is to the wedding day, you want to be aware that if you spend the entire day outside, you run the risk of being sunburned. You definitely don’t want your pictures to be ruined by peeling skin, so you may want to plan your hens’ party a couple of weeks before the wedding depending on what the plan is.
