5 Hens Night Party Ideas

April 30, 2015

Are you a bridesmaid or maid-of-honour planning your best friends hens party? Tough job! Planning a hens party might seem a little difficult at first, especially if you’re not sure about going out, staying in, or combining the best of both worlds for a truly unforgettable night.

Rather than making your evening feel like another sequel of The Hangover, try these fool-proof ideas which are sure to be loved by every bride-to-be.


Not the permanent kind! Try these stick-on tattoos if you’re planning a night of dinner and drinks – just in case someone from the bridal party gets lost throughout the evening. You can even personalise them, but really, how cute are they?!



If you’re staying in for the evening, a good set of games is ideal to keep everybody interested. Some of the most popular hens night games include:

  • Truth or dare: Pretty self-explanatory, right?
  • Mr and Mrs quiz: Ask each couple a set of questions to see how well they know each other.
  • Pass the parcel: A modern take on a traditional game, but also with a few twists. Some lingerie, mini bottles of alcohol and even chocolates are a great way to get the party started.
  • Pinata: Fill your favourite pinata goodies such as miniature drinks, chocolates and even lollies for the night.

Bra Pong

A traditional game of beer pong but with a twist. The bride must shoot the ball into one of the bra’s on the wall, then she must drink! A hilarious way to get everyone involved and bonding throughout the night.



Brighten up the party space with some fun and cheeky decorations – which the bride is sure to love, of course.


Big, bright balloons are an inexpensive way to decorate any space (perhaps spelling out her name, or just bride), banners, and even cute table settings as well.



You can’t have all this fun without some pictures to show for it? Create a fun hashtag for your social media accounts, this way all the guests can check up on the photos as they’re taken! Make sure your profile is public otherwise they won’t show up on the feed.
