How to Plan A Hen's Party

Posted on: 15 December 2017

A hen's party should be an unforgettable, whirlwind occasions that include all the best parts of a wild night. Unfortunately, planning a hen's night can be stressful. Whether it's your own big night or you're a bridesmaid planning the party for a friend, there are a lot of details to arrange and people to invite. From venues to transport to food, the entire night can go wrong with just one wrong booking.

These tips, from advice on hen's party bus hire to choosing venues, will help you plan an event to be remembered for years. Planning a buck's party works in much the same way, so don't think that this advice only applies to the bride and her friends - if you're a best man shouldered with planning a stag do, these tips can help. 

Save the date and send the invites

Earlier is better when it comes to letting people know about your big event. Ensure that you send out invites early and that everyone saves the date. Remember that you'll never be able to pick a date that suits everyone - ask the bride or groom about the people that they really want to be at the party and organize around those people to get a date. 

Organize the transport

Getting a taxi might seem like the easiest solution as you plan, but it can create inconvenience, especially on busy nights. You don't want to be waiting in the rain to get to your next venue, so plan transport well in advance. A hen's party bus hire is a great way to ensure that you make it to your destinations on time and aren't caught out by a busy taxi service. 

Delegate tasks

With big parties, it can be tricky to organize the whole night on your own. Luckily, friends of the bride or groom are usually keen to help you out. Ask them to do little jobs, like ringing the venue to check on details, and you'll be surprised at how much easier your big task becomes. 

Keep it simple

The less you've got planned, the better. Hen's nights and buck's parties can explode into too many activities and bars. Do what you feel like doing, but don't try to make everyone's wishes come true. In the long run, you'll be happier with a few, high-quality venues and fun activities rather than a jam-packed and disorganized night. To take some of the pressure off your planning skills, use services like buck's party bus hire.
