Writing a hen do poem for the bride-to-be is a beautiful way to make her feel super special and to personalise your invitation for her big hen weekend.
You could recite them poem in person, mail it to her, post on her social media or frame it and give it to her as a gift.
You’ll probably want to come up with your own words but we’ve had a go here in The Foxy Hen office to help give you some inspiration:
[Bride’s Name], as you become a bride,
With [Groom’s Name] to stand by your side,
Before the day you say ‘I do’,
It’s our turn to spoil you.
We’ve planned a hen party to celebrate,
All the qualities that make you great.
We love you more than we can say,
And we’ve planned a really special day,
With memories and games and fun,
And lots of [Her Favourite Food Or Drink], like...a tonne.
A day to remember for a good long while,
One to look back on and to smile.
It’s coming soon, you’ll have to wait,
So please, [Bride’s Name], will you hold the date?
Let us know if you write a really special hen party poem - we’d love to hear it! x
A scavenger hunt has always been a popular hen party game but we’ve switched it up a bit to turn it into your very own hen do invitation game for the bride-to-be.
You could play this game anywhere, so get creative. Maybe hide the clues:
You could also be really cheeky and take the bride to a busy local bar, give clues about the hen party to 4 or 5 hot guys in the bar and tell the bride she has to go retrieve her clues from the male strangers in the room without telling her who.
We love this hen do invitation idea if you’re travelling overseas or even just to another town or city closer to home. It’s as easy as:
A hen do is an occasion to spoil the bride and make her feel genuinely loved and special. So why should she have to wait until the actual trip?
A really sweet way to invite the head hen to her weekend away is to give her a gift or a hamper with small items that give her clues about what you’ve got planned for her.
Some gift examples could be:
There are lots of ways you could take this but try and keep it simple, within your budget and focus on items that will help her to get excited for the hen trip!
This is a really simple and heartwarming way to invite the bride to her own hen weekend. Tee up some time with the bride’s closest female family and gal pals and get them to record and greeting and give a clue on camera about what she can expect.
This is an especially lovely invitation idea if there are some girls who live overseas or who can’t make it to the hen. They’ll be able to record their bit and send it to you so they can still send their love to the bride and take part in the hen do fun.
We wrote a hen party poem but we can’t sing for toffee, so we’ll have to leave writing the hen party song to you!
If you or any of the bride squad are talented guitarists, pianists or singers, why not get together and write the head hen a song to invite her to the hen do? Keep it short, maybe make it a bit funny and serenade the bride at home, work or online to invite her to her hen night. She’ll love it, never forget it and she’ll be able to keep the song as a memento of your efforts!
We love this one because you can get really creative with the images or visuals you use in each social post. We’ve crafted a quick hen party clue example above but you could take this one in any direction!
It’s up to you if you post this on her public Facebook or Instagram profile, or if you keep it within a group event or WhatsApp chat you’ve created.
For some hen do clue ideas, you could:
Make sure you have some fun with this one and she’ll love having the clues extended over a few days or weeks in the lead up to the hen to help build the excitement.
No one loves the bride more than her groom, so (if you can convince him to pose) he should jump at the chance to help plan her hen party fun.
All you’ll need is a good camera phone, a quiet setting and some hints for the groom to read out to give the bride some exciting clues about her hen party.
If you’re planning a hen party theme, it’s probably because you know the bride loves whichever one you’ve chosen.
A really special way to invite the bride-to-be to her hen do is to host a brunch, lunch or afternoon tea with her bridal party and hand her a beautiful invitation you’ve designed. But remember to bring your hen do theme into the mix and include hints in the invitation, in your decor choices or the food you make or order for the meal.
You’re only giving hints about the theme., so some simple ideas would be:
If the bride is an old school classy kind of lady, you could keep things really simple and write her a beautiful, hand-written letter to invite her to her hen party.
You could even include a small post-it note from each member of the bridal party sharing their favourite memory of the bride or a small clue about the hen do. She’ll love the nostalgia of receiving something in the mail and she’ll appreciate the personal effort you’ve all made to give her an invitation with feeling and class.
We don’t recommend this hen do bridal invitation for the faint of heart. But, if you’re a daring and creative dreamer, then read on.
Flash mobs have been used for proposals, political statements and just downright random fun. If you’d really like to surprise the bride and go all out with your invitation to her hen party, organise for a flash mob in a public space to perform a dance and hand deliver an invitation (once she stops laughing).
Some practical things to keep in mind:
Sometimes a simple invitation is best and we love the idea of just taking the bride out for a lovely meal with her “team bride” (or a comfy meal at home) and surprising her with an invitation written on a cake or dessert.
This is the best invitation choice if the bride loves tasty food, quality time with her girls and only a little bit of a fuss made over her.
Whichever way you choose to invite the bride-to-be in your life to her hen party, make sure it suits who she is, who you are and what’s realistic within your timeframe and budget. She’ll love you for any effort you make!
