In the run up to your big day, it is important you bid a fond farewell to single life with a bang. Hen nights or bachelorette parties are increasingly popular with brides, and are becoming more and more daring.
Gone are the days when the boys threw the best bash. Girls all over are planning parties to rival them all. Whether you’re looking to blow the budget or plan an understated soirée, discover four of the best hen party ideas for any budget:
1) Girls Night In
If you’re budget is tight or you just want a low key affair, there is nothing better than a girls night in. Getting together with your bridesmaids and female guests is a great way to unwind after the stress of planning your perfect big day.
Grab some wine, chocolates, a take-away and a few girlie films and you’re sorted. If you’re planning a budget wedding, why not make the most of your night in by creating some diy wedding favours? This will not only add a unique touch to your wedding, but can be a great activity to do with your bridesmaids.
2) Painting the Town Red
Put your fiancé’s stag do to shame by painting the town red. You could enjoy a meal out with all your female guests, and then continue on to cocktail bars or wine tasting events with your older guests. With a whole host of themed night clubs and fancy dress nights, you can wave goodbye to single life in style.
Gone are the days when the hen night was before the wedding. Give yourself at least a few days to recover; after all you want to look your best on your big day. You can always choose to explore a different city’s nightlife rather than your usual haunts.
3) Spa Day
Having a spa day is a great way to bring all of the girls in you and your partners’ family together. Enjoy being pampered in the run up to your big day, and relieve all the stress of planning your wedding.
Spa days are great for older brides, or girls who don’t want a big night out. They also make a great treat for you and your bridesmaids. There are plenty of offers available on the internet, and many spas do bridal packages.
4) City Break
If you want to wave goodbye to single life in style, a city break with your girls is a great idea. There are tonnes of affordable weekend breaks available on the internet, and it’s something all your female guests can be a part of.
You can choose to stay local or venture further afield to places such as Rome, Madrid and Barcelona. City breaks are a great way to combine site seeing and shopping with a few nights out. You can enjoy a final girlie break as a single woman, as well as getting to explore some of the worlds’ most beautiful cities.
Planning your hen night is all about spending time with your loved ones and celebrating single life. Your hen night marks the beginning of your life as a married woman and is most definitely worth putting thought into.
