Hen Party Activities and Ideas


Hen Party Activities and Ideas

No Hen Party is complete without a fun and engaging day/ night time activity. In fact, the activies planned for a hen party can be the key factor in making the whole weekend a big success. But what activity should I choose? There are literally hundreds to choose from now a days. So we decided to help by putting together a little guide below  to help you put on the perfect hen party.



*Top Tip*  Create a Facebook group for the hen party and invite everybody that is going or shows interested in going. Then you can start to get an idea of numbers and what the general feel for the weekend should be like . How to create a facebook group?



How many people are going?

This is the first thing you should do is get an idea of how many peole are going.  Don’t worry if you don’t know the exact numbers but an estimate is always a good start.

With Chic most hen parties that have booked with us in the past have an average size of 10 people. So this could be a good starting point.

We always recommend finding an estimate of numbers first as some activities are not feasible and just too expensive per person for lower numbers.



*Top Tip* Do not get misled by the people who say yes when asked at first but then don’t have the commitment to back it up.  To gain some sort of  commitment we recommend that as party leader once you have an estimate of price per person, share this with the group along with a deposit amount per person and date which you need it by. This will filter out the people that actually plan to go and those who don't 





What is an acceptable budget?

Ask yourself what is an acceptable budget per person? We recommend talking with the people that are going and ask what they are willing or can afford to pay per person for the hen party.

Don’t forget ladies it’s your best friend’s send-off.  The safest bet is to use your years of knowledge in knowing the bride to be to think exactly what she would like to do. 

For example

  •          Does she like to think of herself as classy? (A spa break is a good contender here)
  •          Would she like to do something active and outdoorsy? (Paintballing, High Ropes)
  •          It’s all about hair of the dog and a night out for her? (Cocktail Making and Club Passes)
  •          Wild and entertaining something that she wouldn’t do again (Nude Life Drawing, Strippers)

When choosing the activity remember the future mother in law will most likely be there,  how uncomfortable is the bride going to  to feel around her with a naked man in her face. However, she might love it who know's?
