HEN’S PARTY DO’S AND DON’TS
It’s definitely hen’s /wedding season now and girls are getting themselves organised for some great days and nights out.
Whatever you’re planning, you’re sure to have a great time but a few tips from Hens.com.au to ensure a fabulous party for all!
It’s her day for maximum enjoyment, not a day for humiliation or laughter at her expense… And make sure you also listen to her when she lets you know what she DOESN’T want to do… she’s your best friend so make sure you give her exactly what she wants (but a few surprises are allowed!).
Hen’s parties are generally for around 10 or more girls and popular venues and activities get booked up months in advance, so be organised.
Girls love to splash out on hen’s activities, but if you’re desperate to do something really expensive, check with everyone first on what they’d be happy to spend. Generally around $50-100 per head, all in would be fine. Also remember there are likely to be mums and possibly grannies involved, so don’t do anything you wouldn’t want your mum or granny to be party to!
not on the night. But for drinks in bars etc, allocate a kitty monitor and get money from everyone in advance – just start at $20 each and review the situation later!
activities are great to get the party started and also for girls to get to know each other – not all the hen’s friends will have met before.
They allow you to have fun together and catch up properly, not just try to communicate across a loud, crowded bar… Things like weekends in the wine region, high tea parties, beauty salon trips, life drawing class etc.
is best because taxis can be a nightmare, people get lost etc. If you are going to do a bit of a crawl, get a mini bus! It costs very little divided between you all.
about the hen and her husband to be are great to get everyone involved and for girls to get to know each other at the beginning of the day/evening.
at the end of the evening! It’s your responsibility to give her a great time and ensure she does make it to the wedding!
A few packets of Nurofen, stomach settlers and lots of water.
