How To Choose The Perfect Theme For Your Hen Party

The main goal of a Hen Party is for the bride-to-be and her friends to have one last memorable time together before the big day. It is crucial to consider activities and styles that the bride-to-be is likely to enjoy. If the bride-to-be is the one who is planning the event, then this shouldn’t present any problems. If a bridesmaid or other friend is in charge, however, the first priority is to think of a Hen Party theme that is guaranteed to be popular with the bride.

Pretty in Pink, Sassy in Stripes, or a Silver Extravaganza?
One of the easiest Hen Party theme ideas is to choose a suitable location, and a matching fashion feature and have all the girls dress accordingly. A flurry of pink tutus will certainly make an impression on a rainy evening in town. Variations on a design can be a good idea, such as rainbow stripes, tartan checks, frills, or glitzy, metallic fabrics. Matching shirts, tiny hot pants, specially printed T shirts, or classy evening gowns – any style can be used, as long as the style fits the venue, and everyone plays their part. It takes a little bit of advance planning, but the effort is worth it when the pics from the day are posted online, and everyone admires the posse of girlfriends in their co-ordinated finery. We can advise you, and help with every step of the planning process.

Choose a Film, Book, Band or Television Series to Inspire Your Hen Party
Sometimes a Hen Party theme is based on the style of a television series or film. This is a good choice when the group know each other well and have similar tastes. Vintage films, Super Heroes, Vampires, Goths, Sex in the City or Game of Thrones are just a few suggestions. Costumes from the sixties or seventies could be combined with music from those eras, for example. We love to help with planning events around celebrity themes.

Try Something New!
Hotels and spas offer wellness weekends and pampering sessions, for example, where the group can relax together by day and party in the evening. There are adventure trips in kayaks, on horseback, or in a helicopter. You can try bungee jumping, cocktail-shaking, karaoke, ballooning, crafting or Salsa dancing. You could have a makeover and photoshoot, stay in a country cottage, or enjoy a genteel afternoon tea in an up-market hotel. We would be delighted to plan the whole event for you, complete with dinner, decorations and live entertainment. We can advise on all of these possibilities, and more. You can then make a list, and cross them off one by one, until you arrive at a shorter list of options that you can discuss as a group before making a final choice. We can take care of all the booking details so that your Hen Party guests don’t have to worry about a thing!

Splash Out On a Package Trip to an Exclusive Location
The cost of short package holidays and city breaks is often lower than you think, and Hen Parties often start and finish at the airport. We find that booking as a group can secure some very attractive deals. Some trips include limousine pick-up, champagne on arrival, and entrance tickets to a club, casino, or other entertainment venue. A few companies offer all-expenses-paid adventures such as short cruises and wildlife safaris. These fabulous locations at home and abroad could be the backdrop to a holiday-themed Hen Party that no-one is ever likely to forget.
