Both stag and hen events have expanded in scope over recent years. Traditionally a hen night might have been held in the evening a week or so before the big day. It is now common for the hen night to be more of a hen weekend and encompass a day trip or even a weekend away.
If your best friend has lumbered you with the responsibility of planning a hen night and you are beginning to despair about what to do for it, here is a list of possibilities that are a bit more imaginative than a night out at the pub with a veil and L-plates.
Activity Centre – how about taking a leaf out of the men’s book and investigating the local activity centre. Paintballing need not be limited to the men though make sure everyone knows not to give the bride a visible bruise! Quad biking and karting might run slightly less risk of bruising. Other possibilities to encourage the competitive spirit are clay pigeon shooting or archery.
Horse Races – if the hen in question is not the rough and tumble type, how about donning your best frock and putting a fascinator in your hair and strutting your stuff at the race course. The races are a perfect opportunity to have a glass of champagne and admire the glamour of the surroundings.
Cruise – Continuing the glamour theme, if you live beside a river or the sea, there are often cruise packages available that are tailored for a hen party including a bit of music and the opportunity to have a dance.
Pampering – if the bride to be gets sea sick, and hates sports and you’re all out of original ideas, how about a day of pampering at a spa. At TOR spa you can have exclusive use of the spa if you have a group of 12 hens. If you’d like to find out more about our hen days then get in touch with us on 01227 728 500
