6 Cheap and Cheerful Tips to Hold the Perfect Hen Party

Holding a hen party can be expensive. With a few cheap and cheerful touches, a good hen party becomes a perfect one. By doing things for yourself you will have a great time and get something no one else has. You will find you save some money too.

Using DIY Keepsakes
You can personalise almost anything with the bride’s name and the date using a stencil. A really fun idea is painting matching designs onto tote bags, champagne flutes, wine glasses or sunglasses. Using DIY keepsakes is a really simple and effective way of creating something special to remember the fun you had.

DIY Party Gifts
Giving out DIY party gifts is a great way to get the party started. Before you head off giving out gifts can be really lovely touch. By using a little imagination in the packaging with glitter and ribbon your hens will feel extra special. A great way to have a first drink together is by bundling up miniatures of favourite drinks with small bottles of mixers and personalised glasses. A little gift of reviving cures for the next morning might well be appreciated too.

DIY Personalised T-shirts
Matching t-shirts will make your group really stand out. Printing off stencils from designs found online and using a bit of fabric paint make creating DIY personalised t-shirts really easy. You can also get glues that transfer images, for example an embarrassing photo, onto fabric for a really personalised touch.

DIY Decorations
Creating a party atmosphere is easy with DIY decorations. You can glam up balloons with glue and glitter and making no sew bunting with coloured paper and string is cheap and easy. You can add personal messages to the bride in your decorations to make them extra special. Creating decorations with flowers for yourself rather than getting a florist to do it will always save you money.

Online Invitations
As nice as it is to receive formal invitations in the post many hen parties are arranged only with online invitations. Using social media will make it cheap and easy to arrange everyone to be in the same place at the same time. Most social media messaging also tells you who has seen the updates and this will give you peace of mind as well.

The More The Merrier
The larger the group the greater your bargaining power with restaurants, bars and night clubs. If you’re able to guarantee a minimum spend for your group, you will find that many restaurants will let you have a private dining room for free. Often upmarket bars and night clubs will reserve VIP areas for groups for free with minimum spend agreements as well. The more the merrier when it comes to places like spas as you might find a large spa on a quiet weekend will agree a discount for a large group.
With a little imagination you can save money and create a really special hen night very easily.
