Top 5 Hen Party Ideas
There’s always some pressure involved when trying to decide what to do on a hen weekend, especially if you’ve got a large group of fussy girls with varying interests. However, with so many diverse activities out there today there is definitely no shortage of choice. The ideas below are some of the best and will really ensure that you and the girls have a memorable weekend and a darn good laugh!
Most of us have found ourselves standing in front of a mirror with a hairbrush as a microphone belting out those Michael Jackson classics. Well, with karaoke becoming an ever growing industry, there’s no need to keep the spotlight to the confines of the bedroom. These days there are bars and venues dedicated solely to the cause of pure, unashamed singing!
Most bars or pubs will have specific karaoke nights which are great for the confident performers of the group, however for those more self-conscious there are specific venues with private booths. Hiring one of these ensures it’s just you and your friends on the hen party, a microphone, and a list of songs that would take the rest of time to sing through!
Combine that with a personal waiter there to ply you with drinks and you can’t really go wrong. Karaoke is both a fun and alternative hen party activity where you and your friends can let your hair down and really enjoy yourselves. Plus it doesn’t matter if you can’t sing because chances are neither can the rest of the girls!
What girl does not like cocktails? It’s not difficult to understand why cocktail making is so popular with hens when it involves learning how to make crowd favourites such as Cosmopolitans and Mojitos! The cocktail master class goes even further than this though with teaching the history of cocktails, where spirits come from, what spirits go in which cocktails and why.
You’ll even get the chance to invent your own cocktail to commemorate the special occasion, and often a bit of light hearted competition can help break the ice between a group of hens, some of whom may be meeting each other for the first time.
Cocktail making (or Mixology as it’s technically known), is a skilled and impressive art when done professionally and makes for a very entertaining and laid back event.
With the big day approaching there is no better way to relax the pre-wedding nerves than with a dip in the jacuzzi followed by a luxurious massage on a hen weekend.
Pamper days are increasingly popular and this is not surprising considering they involve being utterly spoilt. Whether it be a simple pamper afternoon with a manicure or pedicure, or instead a full blown spa weekend away with all the works; jacuzzi, sauna and massage, it’s all about being made to feel special.
A lot of hotels nowadays include spas, so one of the best ways to enjoy being pampered is in the comfort and ease of the hotel you’re group are staying at. Ultimately though, whichever way you choose to spend the pamper day or hour, you and your friends will leave feeling completely restored and ready for the big day.
Originating from the traditional “Cubon” dance in Cuba in the 1920′s, Salsa has since developed into various new styles due to its popularity and influence all over the globe. From Latin American influences, to Australian and even British, the Salsa variations range from New York Style; “Mambo on 2” to Columbian Style; “Cali-Style”.
The appeal of the dance is the sexy and fun feeling it gives, the vibrant and positive music and somewhere along the way, there is hopefully going to be a handsome Latin American teacher! Salsa dancing is an energetic and fun experience for a hen party and will definitely guarantee you all have a good laugh.
With the wedding day drawing ever nearer, a bride to be will not only be looking for the perfect dress, she’ll be looking for ideas for a whole look to go with it. This is what makes a professional model makeover a great hen party idea. Not only can you take some tips away with you but it’s a great way to feel special before the big day!
The makeover itself usually takes place in a studio, and is put together personally so that it best represents your personality. The photographer will then capture a number of shots of you all looking stunning which you can then take home with you.
A lot of girls dream about having a photo shoot, so this is a great hen party idea as you’ll all feel extra special, and there definitely won’t be any complaints from hen’s husband to be!
