Planning the Ultimate Hen Party

If you’re starting to think about planning a perfect hen party, whether you’re the bride or the tribe, take a look at some of the best hen party ideas we’ve found to inspire you.

Sun, Sea and Sand

One of the most popular choices for hen weekends nowadays is to head abroad. Hen parties are the perfect excuse for an exotic getaway to Malaga or Benidorm for a cocktail fuelled beach party, with some pretty reasonably priced adults-only hotels on the beach front or by the strip. You could even do a long weekend city break to Amsterdam or Dublin with your gal pals – the only limit really is your budget.


Royal Wedding Weekend

Why miss out on the Royal Wedding extravaganza? Start the day early with cocktails and canapes whilst you watch the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get underway. May is the prime time for hen parties, being outside of school holidays and just a little bit cheaper than going in the summer months. So if you’ve planned your hen do for the 19th May, make it a royal party to remember. The wedding commences at 1pm, so why not arrange an afternoon tea with your nearest and dearest.


Adrenaline Junkies

If a day in the spa is not your thing, that’s ok! Why not organise an action-packed weekend with the girls. You could get the adrenaline going at Go Ape or with a bit of gorge-walking, or there are even plenty of companies that organise some crazy inflatable games perfect for hen dos. Pick each other up at the end of the day with a pro cocktail making class so you can show off when you get back home – Be at One Hen Hub is DEFINITELY recommended for some serious shaking!


Woodland Getaway

Whether you’re happy to fork out for a Centerparcs chalet where there are shops, restaurants and water parks at your fingertips (yes, waterparks!), or you’re quite happy to go with a more budget-friendly cabin or AirBnB option, what could be better than a bumper sleepover with your favourite babes. Go back to those good old teen sleepover days and get those face masks in, order a pizza or 12 and talk about boys.
