10 Awesome Ideas for Hen Parties

Make sure the hen party is extra special with these 10 sweet ideas…

1. Hen Party Invites


Set the tone for the hen with a fun invite to make sure all involved know the important details! The bride will be chuffed as well. This one can be downloaded for free over on Bespoke Bride.

2. Sweet Signage


If you’re looking to deck out your hen party space with some fun décor, a sign like this is a fab idea! If you’re after a ‘Miss to Mrs’ sign, Peach Blossom on NotontheHighstreet have one in gorgeous glittery gold that will make for one excited bride-to-be.

We love a good chair sign and the hen is the prefect opportunity to weave one in to the décor! Get scribbling ‘The Future Mrs X’ as a fun surprise for the Bride-to-be when she sits down.

3. Personalised Wine Labels


Pretty up your vino with these awesome personalised wine labels from WowWee. They’ll make any bottle of wine look the part and of course make the bride-to-be feel extra special on her big night. also stock personalised t-shirts and totes if you’re after gifts or outfits for the gang – take a peek at their Hen Party section here.

4. Champagne Favours


Or if you’re looking to have a bottle of mini bubbles for each lady, be sure to deck them out with the cutest accessories – we love these little tags but fun polka dot or stripy paper straws, rosettes and streamers are also pretty options as well.

5. Grown Up Pass the Parcel


Games and the hen go and in hand – pass the parcel was always a winner when we were kids and same goes for us big kids now! Gather your ladies round and play a grown up version with either gifts to remind the bride of some of your favourite memories together (you can all share your stories while you’re at it), some framed photos or a memory book that will have her tearing up or you could just wrap up fun accessories to wear on the night ahead! Play the game to some of her favourite tunes to make it all the more personal.

6. DIY Nail Treats


We love this fun nail bar idea which would be perfect for getting glammed up at! You can pick one colour polish that you all have to wear or even create themed nail art in honour of the hen.

7. Balloon Wishes


Create a fun, party atmosphere with some personalised balloons! Get the girls to write a sweet message to the bride and blow them up then and there, or do it as a game and save them up for the wedding morning to shower the bride with sweet balloon messages as she gets ready!
