Hens Night Planning Tips
Planning a hens party can be time-consuming, so it’s important to start early. Consider the number of guests, the budget, and the bride’s preferences when deciding on the date, location, and activities.
Choose a Theme
A theme can add an extra level of excitement to a hens party. Whether it’s a beach party, a spa day, or a glamorous night out, a theme can tie everything together and make the celebration even more memorable.
When it comes to planning a hens party, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Consider unique activities such as a paint and sip class, a cooking workshop, or a wine tasting experience. These activities can add a fun and creative element to the celebration and make it stand out from the rest.
