5 unusual hen party ideas

Fancy doing something a little different when it comes to your hen do? Over the last few years, hen dos have been less about the drunken nights of debauchery and more about creating memory-filled experiences that everyone - from mum of the bride, nan and mama-to-be besties - will love too!

As we always say, it’s your day (of course, this covers the all-important hen do too!), so have it your way! Feeling fired up and ready to get planning? Here’s just a few ideas to inspire yours or your fave bride-to-be's ‘do!

Get crafty

From life drawing classes (which can be especially fun with a group of giggly girls!) to sewing your own pair of knickers, making your own bouquets or flower crowns to arm knitting chunky blankets, there are so many fun crafty workshops options that’ll get everyone unleashing their inner artist and learning a new skill!  


Stay In

Who says you have to go out just because it’s your hen do? Whether you choose to rent a house for the ultimate hen weekend or hold it at yours, gather your fave ladies for a night in, unlike any other! Go fancy by cooking a three course meal together and then share stories as you wine and dine late into the evening or hold a super sleepover with PJs, popcorn and as many rom-coms as you can fit in!

Let them eat cake

We don’t think we’ve ever met anyone who could refuse a finger sarnie and jam-laden scone or sponge. That’s why afternoon tea is such a lovely, luxurious hen party option. Indulge by booking a decadent experience at a hotel or, if budget’s a bit tighter/ you’d just like to do it yourself, create your very own at home. We’ve got plenty of goodies to help you...

Move it

Want to learn a dance routine that’ll make Beyonce quiver in her thigh high boots? Or maybe you’d prefer to take things a little slower with a yoga session? Getting your hens together to try something new will be a bonding experience and no doubt something that’ll make you all smile about, when you look back on it, for years to come. We can’t wait to see mum-in-law get her twerk on...

Find the treasure

If you think treasure hunts are just for kids, think again! They’re a great activity for hen dos - especially if you’re heading off to somewhere new or bringing all your gals together in your hometown. We’ve seen loads of them happening in Brighton! Using clues, get your hens uniting and exploring, as they tick off the trail and enjoy a tour at the same time! Remember to have some prizes at the ready to give to the first group to complete the challenge!
