Lights, drinks, and music make a party bus into your group’s own personal nightclub! If you don’t fancy getting shoved and pushed at a bar or losing your friends in the crowds, then this is an excellent choice. You still get the full party experience but with just your hen group. If you want the best of both worlds, many party buses will drop you off to different bars too along with your journey! People are able to easily set up their own party bus companies now so finding one should be easy. This article has more information.
If you and your friends are all about healthy living and a night of drinking alcohol and partying isn’t your scene, why not try a ‘zen’ party? A relaxing day of yoga, soaking in a hot tub and a healthy brunch or afternoon tea. The ideal choice for the healthy bride-to-be, or if you or one of your group are pregnant.
This is a popular stag party choice, but why should the boys have all the fun? If an action-packed get together is your cup of tea, then this is a fantastic option. Plus all of that running around burns loads of calories which is good news if you’re slimming down for your big day! There are lots more adventure type days out and weekends so have a look online and see what catches your interest.
If you want to totally customize your hen party, then you could throw it yourself at home. Base it on a theme to make it even more fun and get everyone to wear fancy dress. You could do anything from a Mad Hatter’s tea party complete with ‘drink me’ cocktails in tubes to a Hollywood glamor evening with a big red carpet running to your front door. The good thing about throwing a party at home is you could make it as inexpensive or elaborate as you like. A few cheap props, balloons and asking everyone to bring a bottle would still be a great night with your hen group but wouldn’t cost much if you were looking to keep it as inexpensive as possible. If money is less of an issue you could go all out, and even hire a photo booth and an entertainer.
Lots of companies offer inflatable games days and could make such a fun idea for a hen night. From giant bouncy castles to sumo or ‘bubble fighting’ to inflatable Olympic games. If you have quite a competitive group of hens, this would be a perfect choice! But even if not, it’s something that you’re all likely to have loads of fun with.
