What I’d Like For My Hen Party


So we’re just starting out the wedding planning process and we’re visiting some wedding venues in November, which I’m so excited about. One of the things me and the girls have been discussing is the hen party. A lot of the girls that I know who’ve got married have ended up having two hen parties, which I think is beneficial if some of you hens can’t go due to money or having something else already booked for that date. 

Hen PartySo what would I like for my hen party and who would I invite? Hen parties, like the wedding, are an opportunity to celebrate your final days/months of being engaged before you become a Mrs. In that case, it’s got to be hella good.


A Big Group Of Friends & Family

Myself and Sam definitely have a big group of family and friends, so it comes to no surprise when I say it looks as if I’ve got about 26 people for the hen party. I would hope that all of those I invite can make it on the main hen party holiday but if it’s not possible for some, then I’ll make sure I always accommodate others.

A big group means we need to find some good hen party houses, so my maid of honour will definitely have her work cut out for her!


Jetting Off Somewhere Hot

I’ve always wanted to go abroad for my hen party. I mean any excuse for a holiday in the sun and I’m there right? I have a few ideas of places I’d like to go which I’ve already mentioned to my bride tribe and maid of honour. Kos and Mykonos are two places I’ve always wanted to visit due to how beautiful and picturesque they are. They are also known for having a great night life, which I’m all for.

As we’re looking at an end of May/June wedding, the hen and stag parties are likely to be in March/April time so I’m hoping that it’ll be perfect for hot weather.


Hen Party Games

I’m going to have family at this hen party, both from my side and from Sam’s so the last thing I want is a surprise strip-a-gram waving his man parts in my face, you get me? But that doesn’t mean I don’t want any hen party games at all. 

When you’re likely to have different friendship groups going that don’t know each other so well, it’s great to have ice-breakers so that they can get to know one another. There’s nothing more awkward than trying to force conversations with people you don’t know. I want all my girls (and boys) to enjoy the party as much as I do, so there will be plenty of hilarious games.


Fancy Dress

I don’t want to be that typical hen who gets dressed up in a tiara and a tacky sash. I would love to have a fancy dress that’s planned by my bridesmaids and means something to me rather than a generic outfit. I love fancy dress and it’s a great way of having the a fun night out that will likely be full of laughter.

Wherever the hen party takes place, partyhouses.co.uk are a great place to start, to find accommodation for what will probably be the most memorable party of your life. Have you been to a hen party before or organised one? Let me know in the comment below.
