One question that haunts brides and bridesmaids alike is what they can do during the day of the hen party. You have everything ready to ensure a festive evening but it’s hard coming up with ideas that wouldn’t call for a fortune yet still be entertaining during the early hours.
Here’s what the experts suggest, especially if it’s a very fussy hen and a large group.
Traditional and Girly
So, you don’t know all the girls who are going. Big deal. You do know that for a truly girly party, pampering comes at the top of the list. Check yourselves in at a spa and you can be away from the bustle, have fun, and be ready in time for the big night out. If you feel that a full day at the sauna would not be ideal for some, then just go ahead with some treatments or simply a makeover to feel and look beautiful for the night.
Keep the Adrenaline Pumping
Want to experience that rush? Go for the shooting, paintballing, quad biking that are available at some locations. There will be many options on this one. You can even challenge the stags to a game of either one. At the end of the day, these are brilliant for an active hen party, particularly as an icebreaker.
Girls who love food will enjoy themselves immensely if you include an edible activity too. Whether you are aboard a sea cruise, staying in a top restaurant, or having a girly afternoon at home, there are multiple courses offered to make it exciting. From chocolate making to cupcake decorating, from cocktail classes to sipping tea, you can learn how to create delicious and extravagant delights in your preferred environment, gossiping, and having a memorable time. Alcohol-based activities like wine tasting and cocktail making classes are always popular daytime activities to welcome the crazy weekend nights.
Call for the Wild
If the bride is a great admirer of the outdoors, why not have a back-to-nature party or, at least, a daytime picnic? You can check around and ask about safe campsites. Found a location you like? Call them and ask about the rental tents or cabins along with what activities – canoeing, horseback riding, swimming, etc.
In preparation, when you go to some shops, it’s great to pick a few extra items such as gift certificates or bottles of champagne (whichever’s easy) to host a scavenger hunt for your everyone. Make sure it’s complete with a treasure map and clues. The chicks will be screaming like children in no time. Be as creative as you can.
(P.S. inform the guests about the food, clothes, accessories, and supplies, including toilet paper, which they need to pack.)
Indulge the Naughty Side
Why should the stags have all the nudity on their last night of freedom? For hen groups wishing for some naughty antics, call sexy guys from a strip cabaret show, butlers in the buff, or a nude life drawing class. If these bore you, the hen party can be the excuse for a little foreplay or a burlesque class!
Whatever your plans, you’ll be sure to have a great day with the hens, before the (we assume) wilder night to follow.
