Planning the perfect hen party puts a lot of pressure on the maid of honour, as well as the rest of the bridesmaids – so much so that the whole thing ends up being under-appreciated and overdone. Still, everyone continues in more or less the same fashion, making the most of the pink bows and matching T-shirts before going out to tea or a night of clubbing. Either way, not all brides fit the same pattern, and considering that there are even some who avoid the ‘hen party institution’ altogether, should you be lucky enough to end up planning one for your adventurous friend, make sure it’s anything but a déjà vu.
And when it comes to adventure, planning the hen party can go in many directions, but the main idea to guide you through the process is – would everyone like it? After all, the bride is the star of the show, but she shines the brightest when all the chicks are happy. To be noted – don’t waste too much breath on clothes and accessories, get everyone’s favourite food and drinks and simply go where the adventure is!
Mixing glam and camp may not bring out the best of your vocabulary, but it is bound to bring both worlds to one place. After all, just because the bride is adventurous and enjoys trekking now and then doesn’t mean there isn’t a friend who’s afraid of the dark foliage.
When planning a glamping trip, make sure that transportation of all the necessities, as well as the people is top priority. You could switch between limos, off-road vehicles or even hiking on foot, just to make everyone appreciate the pizza and sushi at the cabin a little more.
While some brides prefer the rush of climbing the mountain side, others enjoy the smooth felt of the gambling tables. But don’t be fooled, gambling through your funds for the hen night can be just as exhilarating as watching out for bears. Speaking of funds, everything from airplane tickets to hotel rooms and beyond can turn into a rather expensive venture.
Nowadays, there’s a much more convenient way to make this come to life – online casinos have come to offer an entire section of live blackjack, baccarat and roulette games, offering 24/7 action from the comfort of your venue of choice. You could invest the money in recreating an entire casino floor for all you like, just to give the bride-to-be the thrill she wants before seeing the draw.
From high to lower-maintenance hen party ideas, a third option to organizing this kind of event is to book an escape room. Pick the entire setting to fit the adventure preferences of the future bride and simply show up when its time. Escape rooms have been known for their bonding effects, as well as the benefits to your mind and logical thinking – just the right peace of mind every bride needs before her big day!
