Introduction

Planning a hen party that the bride will really love comes down to her, passions, personality and the type of group her friends and family make up. Whether you’re her best friend, her sister or even the bride-to-be herself, you know her best! So sorting through the huge range of hen party themes out there should be a cinch!

If you’ve been to a few hen parties, you’ll have seen it all – pink feather boas, walking cobbled miles in stilettos, penis straws and every other hen party outfit or stereotype you can think of. If you’d like to avoid all that but you’re struggling for theme ideas or inspiration, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to choosing hen party themes that everyone will love.

We’ve created guides for everything from your classy and understated hen party themes to something a bit more unusual. If you’re looking for hen themes that aren’t tacky and still make for a unique hen night out or weekend, then choose your favs from the list below and get to planning!

Do you need a Hen Party theme?

Of course not! Some hen groups are more than happy just to hang out together and have an incredible time – whatever that looks like to them.

Choosing a theme for your hen night is only relevant if you genuinely think it will add to the bride-to-be’s experience for her final fling. Check out our list of questions to ask yourself below to find out if a hen party theme is a good idea for your event.

 

Questions to ask before choosing a theme

If you find this list of hen party themes above a bit dizzying, then we recommend you ask yourself these questions to help make your perfect hen party theme choice a bit clearer:

  1. Is the bride passionate about a particular topic, theme, location etc?
    You know her best, so examine what you know about her. Does she love dressing up or is she fairly casual? Does she love to be made a fuss of or would she prefer something more subtle?
  2. What kind of budget are your group and each individual working with?
    Make sure your theme, decoration and game plans fit in with how much money you’re all willing to spend. You might choose to make your own DIY themed decorations or go full-blown, depending on the spend. Also, just remember that not every girl in the group will have enough to go all out on an outfit, so try and give people flexible options.
  3. What time of the year are you planning your hen party for?
    Your hen party date can be a great inspiration or practical consideration for your chosen hen do theme. You could plan for a Winter Wonderland if the bride-to-be loves that time of year. But you’ll also need to consider if holding your hen party in winter means a beach or tropical themed hen party might be a bit hard.
  4. Where are you hosting the hen party?
    If you’re staying in glamping accommodation, then a festival theme will work beautifully but you might want to avoid the nautical theme, which doesn’t really fit. Similarly, does the bride want to stay in with her girls or is she keen on a huge night out? Just make sure your theme choice is appropriate to your location and what your day / evening plans are.
 

Top tips for implementing your Hen Do theme

  • If the whole bridal party is planning together, make sure you’ve discussed and agreed on the theme so that it’s a group choice.
  • If you have any hesitations about your theme choice, maybe run it past the bride to make sure she won’t hate it.
  • Decide whether you’re going to go full-on with your theme and plan for decorations, accessories, games and even costumes. Or will you keep it simple (and cheaper) with only some simple decorations or asking for a simple dress code?
  • Give your group at least 2-4 weeks notice (preferably more) to make sure they have enough time to prepare their hen party outfit, makeup and any other ideas they have.
