After saying ‘YES!’ and before saying ‘I do’, comes an unreal night out where you and the closest girls in your life can go out on the town and make a fool of yourselves. One thing’s for sure – no matter what, it will be a night to remember (or partially remember). Either way, choosing one of our hen party theme ideas is a unique way to stamp your bride’s personality on the event.

We don’t know about you but, at The Foxy Hen, we’ve seen the same hen do themes done to death over the years. So, to help you get inspired, we’ve selected some extra inspiring hen party theme ideas that we think will bring that something special to the whole ‘do’.

Our Fave Hen Party Theme Ideas

Spice Up Your Wife: 90s Girl Band Theme

The 90s are *very* back in fashion right now, so why not don your best 90s-style clothing, put some butterfly clips in your hair, smack on some glitter eyeshadow and pump some Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child or Atomic Kitten on the speakers?

We think the perfect activity for this most nostalgic of hen party theme ideas is a dance class or lip sync battle where you can get dressed up and play out your favourite 90s songs on the dance floor.

Heavenly Hens Theme

We love hen party theme ideas that are easy to implement but help create a unifying look to the whole ‘do’. Getting all your ladies to dress in white and don a pair of angel wings is pretty easy. To help the bride stand out, she can dress in gold or silver and be the most heavenly angel in the choir.

This hen party theme also comes with some delicious heaven-themed cocktail ideas as well:

  • Seventh Heaven: Gin, grapefruit juice and maraschino liqueur.
  • Pink Heaven: Pink lemonade and prosecco.
  • Snowball In Heaven: Lemonade, vodka, maraschino liqueur, advocaat and lime juice.
  • Stairway To Heaven: Blood orange vodka, peach schnapps and pineapple juice.

Heaven And Hell Theme

This is a great variation on the Heavenly Hens theme. Essentially, get the bride to dress up like an angel and all of the hen do members dress up as devils.

It’s the perfect reflection of a cheeky hen weekend where the group’s job is to give the bride one last fling before the ring! Whilst we still want her to make it to the end of the aisle, we think a little harmless fun from her devils whilst away is just the thing.

Sip, Sip, Hooray!

This hen party theme is really simple – choose the bride’s favourite drink and create a party around it. You can go specific with Prosecco, Gin or Beer, or you can keep it nice and broad with a party themed around cocktails or mocktails.

It works best if you’re planning a one night, one day or shorter hen party event – mostly so that it’s not a whole weekend soaked in drink!

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

A Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is a great hen party theme for a bride and a hen group who are willing to go all out! From the food to the decorations and even the costumes, this one is packed with possibilities.

Some ideas for decorations and food are:

  • Colourful sweets like lollipops and boiled sweets.
  • Eclectic mismatched teapots with cups and saucers (your local charity shops are a great source for these).
  • Little cake bites with ‘Eat Me’ on them and little shot glasses with ‘Drink Me’ on them.
  • Decorate the room with clocks and card suits (hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades).

Of all the hen party theme ideas in this list, we think this one has the most visual impact!

Henchella Festival Theme

At Coachella, fashion is just as significant as the music, if not more so. Enter Henchella: a festival-themed hen do that brings the spirit of Coachella to the bride’s big day.

Don some flowers in your hair and glittering face jewels and embrace the festival vibe, whether you stay close to home or travel abroad for your hen do.

Here are three outfit ideas to rock at your Henchella hen do:

  • White Dresses: Embrace the classic Coachella look with flowy white dresses, accessorized with sandals, layered necklaces, and hoop earrings. Throw on a denim or leather jacket for chilly evenings.
  • Denim Shorts: Channel festival chic with denim shorts and custom-made tees for your bride tribe. Complete the look with comfy trainers or boots.
  • Western Style: Opt for a Western-inspired ensemble featuring a cowboy hat, fringe jacket, and cowboy boots. Perfect for adding a touch of country charm to your hen do.

Don’t forget to accessorise with wristbands, glitter face paint, and boho braids to complete the Henchella look. And why not extend the festivities with a hen do glamping weekend? Enjoy quality time with your bride tribe under the stars, with the option to hit the town for a night out. Check out our glamping accommodation options in Carrick-on-Shannon for inspiration.

Bae (Bay) Watch Beach Party Theme

If your group are planning a pool party or you’re travelling for a hen party abroad somewhere sunny and coastal, then including a Bae Watch hen theme in your plans (even for one day or evening) would be a fun way to tie your destination to your theme.

Think red swimsuits, beach-themed cocktails, sun hats and sunglasses. We don’t actually recommend acting as a lifeguard (unless you really are one) but you could grab yourselves one of those little red life floats to complete the look!

Gin Gals

If the bride-to-be loves a bit of juniper juice, then a gin-based hen party theme might be right up her alley. We love this theme because it looks really classy. Our favourite ways to celebrate this theme are:

  • A classy gin bar with different mixers, flavoured gins and botanical garnishes for your glasses. A special touch is to grab vintage cocktail glasses from your local charity shop to lay out on the table as an eclectic mix.
  • Decorate tables and surfaces with flower garlands to continue the botanical vibe.
  • Gin sampling activity – you can either DIY this one at home or in your accommodation or book in for a professional gin tasting in a bar or distillery in your hen destination.
  • Gin-flavoured cupcakes or homemade gin ice lollies add a fun twist to your hen party food.

For any hen do members who can’t or don’t drink, it’s important to also include a few mocktails and non-alcoholic options. You can buy some convincing non-alcohol gin these days, so they can still take part in the yummy gin-based foods and drinks you have planned.

Camping Or Glamping

Planning a camping hen party is a unique way to celebrate the bride-to-be’s upcoming nuptials if she’s a bit of an outdoorsy type. It’s also a great way to plan a hen weekend that keeps the budget down and focuses on quality time together instead of the overdone glitz and tat.

Roast marshmallows on an open fire, hang some fairy lights, play some tunes, make flasks of fancy cocktails to take with you and bring your hen do vibes to whichever beautiful natural setting suits the bride. You could hike up into the mountains, camp on some rolling green hills or maybe even find a coastal spot.

It’s up to you whether you keep it rustic with traditional tents or if you go a bit fancy with some glamping yurts or tents. Whichever way you go, of all our hen party theme ideas, this one is best suited to laid-back brides.

Mardi Gras or Carnival

A Mardi Gras hen party theme is a gorgeous choice if the bride has a bit of flair or if you’re planning a sten do or same-sex hen/stag party. Bring the spirit of New Orleans or Brazil by incorporating bold colours, dazzling masks, and elaborate costumes reminiscent of the iconic carnival atmosphere.

Bring the theme to life with themed decorations, beads, feathers, and glittering ornaments. You could even create your own playlists or hold a Lip Sync Battle where your hen group are all dressed up and mimes along to some lively tunes.


We’ve chosen hen party theme ideas that are truly unique – ones that you don’t see on the hen do circuit every week so you can bring something truly special to your hen do plans. Whichever theme you choose, make sure it matches the bride’s personality and tastes and that it gives her the kind of send-off into married life that she (and the whole group) will remember forever.
