How To Plan A Chic Festival Theme Hen Party

How To Plan A Chic Festival Theme Hen Party

For a classy hen party that you can easily host at home or in a beautiful glamping site, a festival theme hen party (or Henchella) is a perfect choice.

Jump to the good bits

Planning a Hen-Chella or festival theme hen party lets your girls dress up in their most beautiful, boho outfits AND lets your bride tribe celebrate a festival of the bride. Plan a hen night or weekend that showcases everything she loves and celebrates the next steps in her love story. If you’re looking for classy hen theme ideas, this is the jackpot.

Every girl on the hen can interpret the festival theme to show off their own identity and they can help make it the perfect weekend for the head hen.

What to pack

Packing your bags for a weekend music festival is just downright fun. So make sure you draw up the perfect packing list for this hen party trip!

Reach for your:

  • glitter
  • face paint
  • vintage clothing
  • ripped jeans
  • rock t-shirts
  • your very best white sundress and cowboy boots

Festival themed Hen Party accessories

For your hen-chella themed hen party accessories, you could:

  • make your own pretty festival lanyards (DIY is easy!)
  • have a glitter station so everyone can glam up
  • create flower crowns for everyone – ahead of time or on the day

Your standard hen do accessories are also still just as welcome at a Henchella event – think your sashes, fake tattoos, tiaras and anything that makes you all feel like you’re ready to party it up.

Festival playlist planning

Planning your hen do playlists full of the bride’s favourite hits (old and new) is a must-have for a festival theme hen party.

We’ve got you started with our list of over 100 hen party songs to add to your ultimate playlist.

Better yet, bring a mic along to your chosen hen destination and try some karaoke in your hen accommodation and imagine you’re singing on the hills at Woodstock, Electric Picnic or Glastonbury.

Choose your games

A beautiful hen party game to play would be ‘Who Am I?’. Get each girl to write their favourite memory with the bride and get her to read them out. Yes, she has to guess who each memory is with but she also gets to relive those moments and feel those warm and fuzzies with the women she loves most. If you wanted to turn this into a hen party activity, we offer Positive And Prosecco in Kilkenny which is the perfect feel good experience with extra bubbly added.

Festival food & drink ideas

We love the festival hen party idea because the food and drink are a sinch! Do you bring gourmet food to Glastonbury? Heck no… You make it a party with fun, portable food.

For your Henchella do, we recommend keeping it simple but pretty by:

  • creating your own cocktails/mocktails drinks station, complete with floral garnishes and edible glitter
  • colourful cupcakes or doughnuts
  • edible glitter hen party cake
  • bowls of snack foods and lollies
  • jello shots
  • personalised mini bubbly bottles
  • goodie bags for the girls with some sweet treats and shots to go along with their lanyards and accessories.

Glamping accommodation?

A festival themed hen party also lends itself to a girls glamping weekend. Hang some bunting, bring your battery-charged fairy lights and sleep out with your best gal pals – it’s the perfect hen do! You can book a glamping hen party in Carrick-on-Shannon or Kilkenny or one of our many Irish and UK hen destinations.


Basically, if you’re looking for a classy hen do theme that truly celebrates who the bride is, then a Henchella or festival theme hen party is the perfect choice. It’s easy to DIY, lets you all be individuals, showcases great music and gives you some seriously quality girl time before the bride’s big day.
