Hen Dos (and Donts) - Plan The Ultimate Hen Party


Been tasked to plan the perfect hen do by your bride-to-be bestie? Don't. Freak. Out. Here are some top tips to planning the perfect send off for the hens....

Step One - Research
Check out our hen & stag party suppliers here to gather ideas on what you'd like to do. Although you want to keep it a surprise, ask the bride-to-be to give you some basic ideas around what type of day and night they'd like. You may know her well already, but it's good to chat it out and also consider the type of people who will be attending. Not everyone is up for a weekend in Magaluf!

Step Two - The Budget
When you've decided what you'd like to do, cost it up including transport, hotels, food, drinks and extra costs which may be involved (including the essential sashes and hen plates!). Discreetly ask what kind of budget attendees can afford so everyone can make it - there's no point booking a weekend in a luxurious Dubai hotel when your guests have budgeted for a karaoke and cocktail night in a local bar!
