You can really feel the pressure when it comes down to organising and booking the perfect hen party. You want every little detail to be right, so you need to start planning early! Here are 10 tips on planning the perfect hen party:
Money is obviously very important when it comes to organising the hen do. You need to make sure everyone pays their share so you aren’t left with a hefty bill at the end of the night/ weekend! Get a realistic budget from all of the girls you are going to invite and make sure that nobody is left out! Don’t let anyone say that they will “pay you later” as later may never come.
Do a lot of research! Some choose to opt for a weekend away somewhere or just go for a night at someone’s house. Plan ahead and look at the best places to go wherever your destination, most importantly, make sure that everyone has a passport! Pick a good hotel, after all a hen night for your friend is going to be a one off (hopefully)!
Make sure that your activities are planned to a tee. This will mean nothing will be ruined by lack of organisation and nobody will get upset at any surprise plans, apart from the bride-to-be of course.
Don’t go overboard
Just because you like the idea of 100 half naked men dressed in YMCA gear covering you in whipped cream, doesn’t mean that your friend does! Remember to be flexible with your plans too, go with what the majority of the group want to do, try not to be selfish with it.
If you are drinking, don’t get wiped out on vodka shots in the first hour of the party. Remember you are chief organiser so it is your job to ensure it all goes to plan, and you can’t do that with your head down a toilet can you?
Relax and enjoy!
Try not to worry too much, you’ve done all the planning so you have every right to go out and enjoy the party that you have helped to organise!
