5 Alternative Ideas for a Memorable Hen Do

5 Alternative Ideas for a Memorable Hen Do

Hitting the town for a night of cocktails and dancing is always fun. But isn’t that what you girls do every time you get together? Whether the bride isn’t really the clubbing type or you’re simply looking for something different from the norm — something with a bit of “that’s cool!” perhaps — consider these alternative ideas for a hen do that no one will ever forget…

Bring the spa to her

Light some yummy scented candles, ask the hens to each bring a bathrobe, and book a mobile spa, such as The Home Spa and Blossom and Jasmine, to come to the bride’s (or your) home. Make sure there’s plenty of Champagne and light nibbles to complete the pampering experience, and just veg out with the ladies.

Outdoorsy Lady

Is your best friend more of an explorer than spa-goer? Consider swinging through the treetops on a zip line tour in Britain’s woodlands! Worldwide Zip Line has locations nationwide. Talk about an out-of-the-box idea! Why head straight home? Make a day and night of it and arrange to stay at a nearby inn for extra girly fun.

Dance Off

You girls like to move it, move it, so how about a private dance class at a studio that teaches you all some new moves? This can be anything from salsa to sexy moves that are sure to produce some giggles. Dress the part, of course, no matter which genre of dance you choose!

Cook up a storm

For the foodie bride who loves to spend time creating in the kitchen, a cooking school is a fab idea. Check out Eckington Manor Cookery School—not only does it have a stellar course, but the experience is also about the ah-mazing scenery, gorgeous manor and gastro pub to throw back a few after the cooking is through. Enjoy!

Style Savvy

Fancy yourself all about fashion? Oooh the group is going to go nuts for Katherine Elizabeth Hats’ Mad Hatter Couture Events, which come to your home or a hotel of your choosing. (The milliner has dressed the likes of Lily Allen and Alexa Chung, btw…you’re next!) They bring the materials, like feathers and fabrics, and you all go at it, putting together your own bespoke headgear for the bride’s big day—or not.

Now for a few additional things the bride may need or want to make the hen do “official”! Document this special time with a Hen Night Pocket Photo Album. This pocket-sized album holds 24 individual 6 x 4 inch photos and is designed to record all the memories (what happens at the hen do, stays as the hen do…?).

And don’t forget to thank the special ladies who took part in the hen do and were focused on making it a success for the bride with a cute thank you, such as Sweetheart Thank You Card by Mandalay.

What’s more, it doesn’t need saying – make sure to pick out for your hens the perfect personalised invitations for your wedding.

Have fun!
