The wedding’s on the way, but before the big day arrives there’s an event all your girlfriends are looking forward to: the Hen’s night!! But before you hand over the party planning to your Maid of Honour, make sure you let her know what kind of night (or day!) you have in mind. It is, after all, YOUR Hen’s Party. Steer clear of clichés and keep it fun and classy with these 9 fresh ideas.
A private room at a karaoke bar is like your own personal night club – but so much better. You pick the guest list, you play your favourite songs, and you really can let loose and dance like no one’s watching!
Love a bit of Master Chef or My Kitchen Rules? Put your skills to the test or pick up some new tricks at a cooking class. If your group of friends is a bit more ‘hands off’ then why not hire a chef to cater the ultimate dinner party?
Swap the cocktails and dancing for a green juice and a massage (so relaxing & healthy too!). Take time out from wedding planning and give your body and mind some much needed TLC. You don’t even have to leave the house as some companies will come right to you! It will be the perfect night-in with your besties.
Appeal to your girlfriends’ posh side with fine china and mini treats. Spend a fun afternoon dressed up to the nines and nibbling on mini delicacies. It doesn’t have to be all tea; many places offer a champagne option which is perfect for celebrations.
This one takes a little bit of planning but it’s perfect for the bride who can’t sit still! Teams are a great way to get everyone involved, particularly if the guests don’t already know each other well. Friendly competition always breaks the ice.
Pack your bags and get out town. It doesn’t matter if it’s a few hours’ drive away to your favourite beach or a 3 hour flight to Sydney. Rent a bach or apartment and spend a fun weekend exploring a different place (think of all those coffee dates!). It will be an excellent time for bonding between close friends.
A day spent sipping wine in a gorgeous vineyard accompanied by delicious food and your best friends’ sounds like perfection! Nip over to Waiheke for a tour or make it a weekend event in Marlborough or Central Otago.
Call ahead and book a table front and centre as a comedy club. Let them know what you’re celebrating (and who the bride is) for some good natured ribbing that’ll leave you all in stitches. This is great for the outgoing bride who doesn’t mind a bit of attention.
Whether its kite surfing or burlesque dancing, take advantage of the occasion to try something new. There’s lessons all over the city for absolutely anything you can think of, especially if you don’t mind looking a little silly or inexperienced in front of your best friends.
