Common questions

Not necessarily!

Planning some hen party games or choosing a theme are extras for a hen party, not must-haves. However, they can be a really easy way to add a special touch to your hen do.

It comes down to a few factors:

  • What does the bride want?
  • What style of hen do are you going for?
  • Where is the hen being hosted? 
  • What’s your budget?

If it is practical to plan some games and a theme and you’re feeling creative, we say go for it! But don’t stress if it’s just not possible.

It’s so important to get the style of the hen party right to make it really match the personality and tastes of the bride-to-be.

To nail down the perfect hen party ideas:

  • Talk to the bride. You need to make sure you know her do’s and don’ts, special requests, the invite list etc. Find out your planning boundaries to build your confidence.
  • Discuss with the group. Get a sense of their budgets, time off work, preferences, fun ideas etc.
  • Be practical and realistic. Keep your ideas and plans achievable – you can be creative without overcommitting and stressing yourself out.

Hen party group politics can definitely be a challenge – we’re sorry if this is happening to you.

Ultimately, this event is about the bride-to-be. So, if your group have tried to discuss your ideas and can’t agree, then we’d recommend going back to the source   of all truth.

Talk to the bride and hint at a few of the different ideas (without all the details) and ask her which ones feel right. No one can argue with that!

We completely get it and we’re here!

Why Hen Party ideas are important

Hen party planning can be a daunting task. If you’re the lucky lady, ladies or man of honour who are blessed with this unique role, we know you probably have heaps of questions, some vague ideas and some genuinely lovely ambitions to spoil the bride-to-be.

At The Foxy Hen, we can handle the big details like booking in your hen party accommodation, meal and activities in the top hen do destinations in Ireland, the UK and Europe. Meaning you’ll have more time to spend on the finer details, the creative touches and the hen party ideas that will make your event truly special.

However, our job isn’t just to book your hen party in for you and handle all the hassle. It’s also to help prepare you to be the best hen party planner you can be – corny, we know. But it’s true.

So, we’ve put together this hen party ideas guide for you, to bring together all of the expert knowledge you’ll need to create the perfect hen do.

How this guide can help you

We’ve made your task a bit easier by creating hen party ideas guides for the most popular ‘types’ of hen dos. For example, a glamping weekend, a luxury hen do or a hen weekend away in a sunny or beach destination.

As part of your role, you should consider whether you would like to play hen party games, organise hen party bags, wear sashes or accessories and what kind of hen decorations you’ll use to create the scene. And on top of that, you’ll also need to decide if your choices for these items will revolve around a particular hen party theme?

For example: Festival, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Harry Potter, Nautical, Vintage, Beach, Rose Gold

Above all, our advice for your hen party ideas and planning is to be thoughtful and genuine about the bride-to-be and the group.

What does the bride particularly love? How many people will be attending? Do you want your games, themes and decorations to be cheeky or classy? What kind of budget are you working with? Does everyone know each other?

Answering these questions will help you to create a memorable and realistic hen do experience for the bride and the whole hen group.

The internet is full of nice hen party ideas but it can be dizzying to sort through it all. So, besides clicking through this page for inspiration, we also recommend you skip the hard work googling elsewhere and check out our hen party planning guide.

This handy doc brings together all of the tasks you’ll need to complete and our fave hen party ideas to create your ideal hen do.
