Make plans to see this one with your girlfriends now.
If it’s a cash bar, count us out.
Move over Bridezilla, enter the Maid Of Dishonor.
Gather up your girlfriends and plan a bachelorette night filled with laughter, drinks and of course, some modern games for the bride-to-be. Our tips below are perfect if you’re planning an at-home party or pre-drinks before you head out and dance the night away!
If you’re planning this party at home, cocktails are a must-have. Rosé, prosecco and other light, summer wines can serve as basis for your favourite cocktails. Fresh berries can also serve as a tasty garnish for sangria and other cocktail drinks.
Decorate your favourite balloons in glitter, lace and ribbons for a truly magical party. All you need to do is coat them in glue, then dip into some sparkly gold or silver glitter.
A champagne and sweets table is the best way to stay organised for any bachelorette party. Keep it looking modern with glitter and confetti as decoration.
Skip the same-old banners for ones that you can purchase off Etsy or even make yourself! This one is perfect for the bride who loves Beyoncé.
Decorate the table with white tulle veil, a bridal sash and other fun bride-to-be ornaments for the party. They’re also a fun way to get into the spirit of the wedding!

If you want some ideas for an upcoming hens’ party you’ve come to the right place! I’ve noticed most hens party ideas are location-based, but I’d like to cater for everyone. So regardless of where you live or the budget you have, I’ve got some fun hens party ideas for everyone.
The PJ party/sleepover
If the budget is super tight for everyone this one may sound boring but it’s actually a lot of fun especially if there’s a few of you. Ask everyone to bring along bedding, drinks and nibbles and turn it into a pajama party. Order take out, watch the latest chick flicks (or porn?), drink some champers, snap some photos and just enjoy time together.
To make it more like a hens’ party, hire a stripper, tarot reader or some sort of entertainment that will come to you, plus play some hens’ party games. There are heaps around. The main focus is to get together and have a great night in. No one has to drive or go anywhere so it makes for a fun, intimate night with the girls.
Tell the ladies to come in casual clothes and bring along makeup and a sexy outfit. Prepare some drinks and nibbles at someones house, crank the music and everyone can get ready together. There’s nothing like girl time and dress ups! Pre-book a limo and take it to a preferred location and have yourselves a photo shoot. If cost is an issue, ask someone handy with a camera to take the photos. Alternately search for a studio, tell them what you want and see if they will accommodate.
After your shoot, head out to dinner or hit the clubs. Starting with a photo shoot will give the bride-to-be some amazing memories and begin the night a little differently. Getting ready together will be a lot of fun plus it’s a great ice breaker for ladies who are unfamiliar with each other.
A day out with the girls
If sitting around drinking champers sounds a bit sedate why not book a limo and take the crowd to paintball, laser skirmish, bowling, a fishing charter, jet boat ride, river or dinner cruise, scenic flight, day spa, a guided tour of some description or what ever else is available where you live and within the budget.
This can done during the day or night, depending on the activity you select. Perhaps complete a daytime hens’ party with sleep over or night on the town. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s fun, everyone enjoys themselves and the bride-to-be has an awesome experience.
Why let the fun stop after a few hours? Head away for the weekend, just the girls. If the budget is a little tight, go to a caravan park or hire a room or two for the weekend. This one can cost as little or as much as you like. Take some hens’ party games, hit the town, hire a limo or try some new restaurants.
If budget allows, book a bus that will fit the entire party and take you all to a holiday house at the beach or in the country. Go explore the region together, relax and get a bit or R&R at the same time. Organize a tour or combine some of the other options while you’re away. With so much time you’ll be able to pamper the bride-to-be, experience something new and have heaps of opportunity to giggle, drink champers and have fun.
A night interstate
It’s quite unlikely the bride would have done this before, so go explore the nightlife in another city. Hire a return limo to the airport and back and don’t bother taking luggage. Larger cities are open 24/7 so catch an evening flight and fly back in the morning. Providing you’re not too drunk to be let on board!
Explore the nightlife and the hens can be as silly as they like knowing they’re not likely to bump into anyone any time soon! You won’t need accommodation either if you feel like you’ll all be able to pull an all niter. This one is probably be for a younger crowd but don’t underestimate the older hens. They just might teach the young ones a thing or two!
Being so unique the bride-to-be most likely hasn’t done this before, so it will be something special. Plus, if friends or relatives interstate are attending the upcoming wedding, this is a perfect option to be able to include them providing you visit their city.
A weekend interstate
If one night interstate sounds too hectic or if you just want to prolong the fun, bring your bags, book accommodation and spend the entire weekend interstate. Set off Friday night so you can make the most of the weekend. When you get there you can either hit the town or have a quite night in. (Good luck with that one!)
Organise a tour the next day, followed by dinner and a night out on the town. Check out what the city has to offer and make bookings well in advance. You might find some fun ladies entertainment venues, a naught show, plus checkout what packages the local limo companies have to offer.
Make the most of the weekend away and go exploring, shopping or sightseeing the following day. Have dinner together and book a late flight home. Remember to take loads of photos for the bride-to-be to look back on the experience.
As you can see a hens party doesn’t have to be one night of alcohol, clubs, topples waiters and limo’s. There’s a world of experiences waiting out there so why not make the best of this awesome excuse to get the girls together and experience them!
