Whilst there are plenty of hens who will love the idea of carrying around willy shaped straws and wearing L Plates, there are just as many that think that this is the worst thing that could happen. Neither way is right, it is just down to a matter of choice.
So, if you are thinking that you might want to take a different route, then why not take a look at these other ideas for creating the perfect hen do, without any tack or tat?
Throw away a theme
There is nothing wrong with a touch of fancy dress, but not everyone loves the idea of being a sexy nurse or a naughty sailor for the evening, If you are worried that your hen isn’t going to enjoy the idea of dressing up, then don’t be afraid to throw away any kind of theme. You could just encourage all the ladies to wear something ultra glam, or maybe accessories with a touch of glitter? You could even set a red lipstick only theme which still keeps everyone together, but makes sure that you all look ultra classy too.
Organise an afternoon tea
Picking an activity for a hen do isn’t always the easiest thing to do. You are going to want to have fun, but you also want to keep it into the tastes of the hen too. If you are worried that the majority of choices out there are not going to be appeal to her, then why not think about something a little different?
Afternoon tea is probably the best idea possible, after all nothing says classy ladies better than some scones and a sandwich or two. The great thing about afternoon tea is that it is readily available around the UK and, if you want to, you can always add in some Prosecco rather than tea to make it feel extra special.
Treat the hens to a goody bag to remember
A tradition for many hen parties now is to give all the hens a goody bag that they can use throughout the night, day or weekend. Of course the common approach to this is to fill it with lots of novelty items, but this doesn’t mean that you have to do this. You can make a goody bag exactly what you want it to be. You can pop some nice toiletries, a face mask or even some make-up, the idea is that they have some treats that they can use whilst they have fun and celebrate with the bride to be too.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can try your best to make a hen do as classy as you want it to be. However, it is always important that you don’t get too caught up on the details. Of course it should be perfect for the main lady, but the idea is always to have as much fun as possible, so make that your focus.
