The Ultimate Hen Party Planning Guide to Help You Plan the Best Night Ever
The Hen Party Planning Guide
The hen party can be a fun and memorable event for the bride, her friends and family. It doesn't matter who the bride is, what her religion is or where she comes from; there are features that are common to all parties.
The first important thing to think about is the location of the hen party. A lot of people assume that it needs to be someplace exotic or expensive but this isn't necessarily true. The location should be somewhere accessible so guests can easily get there without too much trouble.
Planning the Venue
The most important factor in deciding on a venue for a hen party is the size of your party, and the type of event you are planning.
Some tips that can help you get started:
- Contact venue to see if they have availability for the date you want
- Review event space capacity and catering requirements
- Learn about venue policies and restrictions, such as dress code or whether children are permitted
- Plan a timeline for the event with your group
Who should I invite?
This can depend on your personal preference, but it's traditional for all your near and dear ones from both sides of the family to attend. This includes mothers, fathers, brothers/sisters, grandparents and even other family members or close friends.
Picking Your Theme and Decorations for a hen party
Picking the theme and decorations for your hen party is the hardest part. It's important to get it right because this will set the tone for the entire event.
Here are some ideas to help you choose your theme and decorate your hen party!
If you're looking for something different but still cute, one option is to go with a retro style. You can also make it more colorful by adding neon balloons or hanging banners with retro phrases like “Love You Babe.” Another idea would be to choose an outdoor theme like camping. For this type of theme you can pick up some bamboo fences, picnic tables, and lanterns at places like Hobby Lobby or Pier 1 Imports. The best part about both of these themes is that they are really easy on the budget!
Food Choices and What Else You'll Need at Your Event
There are a lot of considerations to make when planning an event. Important decisions is what food will be served, and the type of drinks that will be available.
Food options at your event can range from a simple cake or cupcakes to a full buffet. You’ll want to take into account the number of people who will be attending your event, as well as dietary restrictions and allergies.
You should always have a water station set up with disposable cups for people to take any drink they would like. This way, you can offer both hot or cold drinks without worrying about cleaning or providing cups for each person.
