Organizing The Ideal Hen Party

One of the most exciting parts of being a bridesmaid is organizing the hen party. This is something that can be a great opportunity to express a little something about how you feel about the bride to be. It’s also strangely stressful at times, so it helps to really know what you are doing! In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the most important parts of organizing an event of this kind. As long as you bear a few key things in mind, you should find that it goes much better than you could have ever hoped and that will make for one lucky bride!

Wherever you are planning on going, you will want to put some special thought into how you are getting there. Depending on your destination, there are a huge number of options for you here, so it will probably take some deep thought to find the ideal choice. For some parties, taking public transport can be a very good idea – not least because you don’t want anybody to have to drive. But you could go a step further and even hire a party bus if you are that way inclined. There are so many options these days for party buses, and you can generally have them themed however you want. If you take a look at party bus rental here, you will see some examples of the kind of thing you can go for. Get the transportation right, and you will be removing one of the major headaches from the whole day, so that is worth organizing first and foremost once you know where you are all going.

It is usually best to have a couple of activities so that everyone can have a taste of what they enjoy. It also helps to keep the whole evening going more strongly if you do it this way, rather than just doing one activity and being done with it. What to do depends on your bride in question. Try to find something that she will enjoy, but which she wouldn’t necessarily have thought of herself. This is usually the best way to bring about the most positive reactions, so it is a good idea to aim for that. You might also decide that you want to host two separate events. One can be for everyone who wants to come – including mothers, aunties and so on. While the other one can be just for the core crowd, the bride and her bridesmaids. This way, you can get the best of both worlds, and everyone is happy.

The Group

Knowing who to invite to either or both events can be difficult, but compared to many other parties it can also sometimes be quite self-explanatory. One of the main things to watch out for, however, is that there is nobody who the bride doesn’t particularly get on well with. The last thing you want is any drama to occur on the big night, so work hard to ensure that the group is a tight and close-knit one as much as possible.

    It is a good idea to have a couple different activities planned. I've thrown a few in my day, and been to even more, and I can't think of a single one where we stayed in one place all night. And absolutely get public transportation, unless you have a place to stay close by or you've invited a designated driver. 🙂
