Guest Post: Planning the ultimate Hen Party

Any girl would be delighted to be asked to become a bridesmaid for her friend and, even more so, if they are to be the maid of honor. Think of the glamour, the dresses and shoes, getting their hair and makeup done – sounds so exciting! But there is also a lot of work and responsibility involved in being a bridesmaid or maid of honor. Firstly, you have to think about the most important event of the bride’s life: the hen party. Since you are now officially the Hen Party Planner, you need to ensure that the beautiful bride-to-be’s last big night out is perfect! Here are a few things you should keep in mind when organizing the ultimate hen party.

How Many?

How many people and who does the bride-to-be want there? You will need to ask the bride for this and get their contact details as well. For your own sanity, try to find a communication platform that most, if not all, invitees are on, such as email, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp group, etc. If you are trying to keep in touch with everyone in a multitude of ways, you may forget somebody or end up driving yourself crazy. Also, be prepared for people to confirm initially but cancel at the last minute. And are the mom and mother-in-law invited? The aunties? Best check with the bride on this one.

How Much?

Weddings can turn out to be very expensive, not only for the bride and her family, but also for the bridal party and the guests. Between new outfits, transport, accommodation and gifts, the hen is yet another expense to add to the cost of being a wedding guest. You need to bear this in mind when organizing a hen party. Also, don’t forget to add a bit extra to the overall budget for small items, such as hen sash and veil for the bride, dare cards, hen party paraphernalia. It is best to collect the money in stages, allowing people to pay off some of the cost over a longer period of time. This might also prevent people from pulling out at the last minute.

The timing of the party is very important. You don’t want it too close to the wedding but yet close enough. Your bride-to-be will be quite busy, so discuss with her when would suit her best. Also consider who the guests are, is there anyone else getting married around the same time, christenings, holiday season? You want as many people as possible to be able to make it, so it’s a good idea to take this into account. Also, trying to arrange the event around payday is not bad thinking.

Where to have the party?

When deciding the location for the party, you need to take into consideration the cost of the hen party for each attendee. Do you want to go away? Stay in Ireland or abroad? Have a night out in the local town? Stay home? There are many choices and all will impact the cost. Also, how long is the hen going to be? One night or two? Three maybe, if it’s a bank holiday weekend?
