Party like it’s your last day being single

You have the towering wedding cake ordered, the perfect white dress ready, the place cards elegantly hand-written, and a romantic honeymoon booked.

After months of frenzy with wedding preparations, you deserve to let your hair down before you start developing pre-wedding jitters. So don’t put aside the idea of throwing a hen party, even if you have overshot your wedding budget.

If you think that a hen party is passe, it is, if you are thinking of male strippers, tequila and fishnet stockings.

Forget about getting drunk and unhooking your bra. That is passe. A hen party is supposed to be all about you, embracing your expiring days of freedom as a single woman together with your best girlfriends.

Before you said “yes” to the guy who’s on one knee before you, (I hope) you were mentally prepared to be a dedicated loving wife.

Pull out all stops on planning your hen party. This is your chance to make up for all the activities you are going to miss after you say “I do.”

  • Start by picking a theme. Having a theme helps you expand on quirky ideas and makes your hen party a memorable one. Themes also prepare your girls to come appropriately dressed.

  • List the activities
    You don’t have to crack your head with over-the-top ideas, just activities that you and your besties enjoy.

  • Prepare what you need
    Save on costs by checking on promotions if you will be out partying, booking a hotel room or taking a flight.

  • Fuel for partying
    A good supply of food and alcohol to keep the energy and spirits high. Keep in mind the nature of your activities and order appropriate food that goes well with your party’s theme.
