Although getting married is undoubtedly one of the highlights of our lives, the prospects of enjoying a hen party cannot be underestimated. It’s the pivotal moment where we all get to say goodbye to our lives as singletons and go out for one last spectacular celebration with our best friends.
However, the image of the hen party has been somewhat tarnished in recent years due to stereotypes of marauding gangs of drunken women flocking around the bars of various cities. So if you’re looking to host a hen party with a difference, here are a few top ideas.
Big city glamour
The bright lights of the big city will always hold a huge attraction for those seeking a little excitement on their hen party. Increasingly, many are seeking to head to an exotic European city such as Zagreb, Krakow, Bruges or Prague to get away from it all, but for those seeking a few more cost-effective solutions, there are always some great ideas closer to home.
A trip around the wonderful Theatreland of London’s West End can provide a more than adequate dose of glamour and drama, and the area is very convenient for sampling the delights of Soho’s upmarket cafes, bars and restaurants. Or should you wish to host a hen house party, you can keep the guests entertained through sites such as Dream Bingo which is easily accessible on a big screen smart TV, with its tempting UK welcome bonus sure to provide an added touch of adrenaline to the night’s affairs.
Similarly, the huge appeal of TV programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing has helped create something of a dancing revival. So why not take advantage of this burst of enthusiasm by taking your hen party to a special salsa lesson that will teach your group all of the delights of this engaging activity that can be a lot of fun and provide something of a workout too.
However, if you’re looking for something a touch more soothing before the main day’s events, then a trip to the country can always be a good idea. Visiting the wonderful natural landscapes of the Lake District can work wonders in making sure that everyone in your group feels relaxed and rejuvenated. And if you’re really feeling like pampering your hen party, then a trip to the luxurious spa hotel of the Daffodil Hotel near Grasmere will provide just the right amount of tranquility and splendour.
Of course, some brides might be better-suited to something a little more stimulating. In which case, going on an adventure weekend through companies such as GoApe can provide some fun and challenging activities such as tree-climbing and zip-wiring that will undoubtedly help bring your hen party together. And should you really want to defy convention, then a sumo-wrestling hen party can really provide with a memorable, yet slightly surreal twist on the traditional hen party experience.
