5 Fun Hen Party Ideas

If you’ve been asked by your best friend to be a bridesmaid, then you’re likely to be aware of all the fun, and sometimes stressful, things that your friend may ask you to help with. With exciting wedding plans, bridal and bridesmaid dress fittings to attend and providing emotional support along the way, these are all things that will help her big day run smoothly. But, there is one thing that all bridesmaids should prepare for and that is the all-important hen party!

But, if you’ve never organised a hen party, or even attended one before, then you may feel a little overwhelmed. But, there’s no reason to! There are plenty of fun and lighthearted things to do when it comes to planning a hen party, no matter if you want to organise a quiet escape or plan something that no one has ever done before. Here are 5 fun hen party ideas to get your creative juices flowing and give your best friend the send-off into married life that she deserves.

Cookery Classes

If your bride is a foodie and loves all things cooking and eating, then why not gather the girls together and learn how to cook up a storm in the kitchen? This is one of the most underrated and fun hen party ideas that you can think of!

You can either head to one of the bride’s favourite restaurants or search for something a little more unique, such as chocolate or marshmallow making. There are plenty of different options that you can choose from and at the end of it, you’ll get to enjoy a great meal that you’ve cooked yourself with the rest of the bridal party.

Spa Getaway

For a relaxing and luxurious getaway, a spa weekend is sure to be something that the bride will love. What better way to prepare for her wedding than by getting some rest and relaxation, all whilst being pampered in a fancy hotel? Many spa hotels offer specialist hen party packages that come with afternoon tea, cocktails and a beautiful hotel room to relax in after your treatments.

City Escape

Does your bride prefer to be in the hustle and bustle of it all rather than spending time winding down? If so, then a city escape is perfect. There are so many different and fun hen party ideas that you can add in during a city stay too, so your weekend is sure to be full of laughter.

Whether you head to an escape room, go to a cocktail making masterclass or just want to check out the nightlife, there’s no shortage of ideas when it comes to staying in a city. If your best friend loves a bit of glamour, then book our Glitter Hen Party Package to come and visit before you head out and get the bride and the bridal party all ready for a fun day out!

Murder Mystery

For a night that is sure to be fun and full of laughter, a murder mystery evening is the perfect activity for a hen party like no other. A horrendous crime will happen to an unsuspecting victim and it is up to you and your hen party to discover out who did it.

This is a great thing to do if you want to break the ice a little with the bridal party and get to know each other. Add some costumes into the mix and it is sure to be something that the bride won’t forget!

Get Your Heart Racing

If the bride, or even the bridal party, are true adrenaline junkies, then there are plenty of fun hen party ideas that are perfect for creating an action-packed weekend full of adventures. Whether you take part in an inflatable obstacle course, go zip-lining or even head to a burlesque dance class, there is no shortage of activities that will get your heart racing and unleash some hen-party competitiveness. Look at what is on offer in your nearest town or city, as each will have something different.
