Your hen night is the time to let loose and have fun with your girlfriends before your big day. A great hen night should be fun and adventurous; a memorable celebration with all of your closest friends. Are you stuck for ideas on how to make the most of your hen do? We’ve got you covered with our top hen night ideas.
For your hen night, you can choose to go to a variety of fun nightclubs, where you live or further afield, and get your groove on with your friends. If you’re looking for something more out of the ordinary, there are a range of great hen night classes on more exotic forms of dance. Belly dancing is fun, interesting, and sensual; you can hire a professional instructor, who will help you to perfect all the moves; which you can enjoy flaunting later for your future groom. In comparison, salsa is a high energy dance; perfect for amping up the excitement and breaking the ice between all of your hens.
Eat and drink your way to hen do bliss
A nice way to start your hen night, is with a reservation at a special restaurant for you and your friends; have a read of some of the most well-reviewed restaurants on Trip Advisor and make sure you book your seats at your chosen spot well in advance.
A fun way to break the ice between your hens and to make sure you have a truly memorable hen night, is to organise a cocktail lesson; during a lesson you’ll learn how to make all your cocktail favourites, from cosmos to mojitos. If you’re more of a wine lover, you may prefer to organise an elegant wine tasting night; this option is a good choice for a smaller, more intimate group.
If you’re looking to relax and unwind on your hen party, you may like to book a spa day with your friends. A spa day is the perfect way to get yourself glowing for your wedding day, as you can get yourself beautified with manicures, pedicures, and, facials. You’ll also come away feeling chilled and refreshed with a massage, hot tub time, and the sauna room.
If you’re looking for something more high energy, you may enjoy a fun makeup masterclass. MAC hold makeup classes, where you’ll be schooled on how to perfect your contouring technique, learn how to nail the smoky eye, and figure out the perfect lipstick shade for your skin tone.
Pump it up
A day of action sports may be the perfect option for the adrenaline junkie bride-to-be. Some future brides are looking for thrills and may love a day filled with quad-biking, kayaking, bungee jumping, or paintballing. If you’re looking for a real challenge, you may enjoy battling it out with your hens on an assault course.
Just remember the most important thing
We hope our article has given you some great ideas for the perfect hen night. If you’re an organiser for a hen night, the key thing to remember is to make sure you are organising the hen night based on your bride’s interests and preferences; as Agnes, @ConfettiWedding, notes: “All of the other girls are there to celebrate her last night of freedom, so if she is happy then they should be too!”.
