How many hen parties have you attended in your adult life and how many went well? There have been so many hen parties over the years and what happens at those parties have evolved over the year. As the years have passed, things that seem to be acceptable in the past may not be looked upon kindly today.
If you have been charged with organising the hen party, you have a big task before you. Your job is to make sure the bride to be has a wonderful time. That is why for you to be able to organize a party rocks, you have to understand what would be considered acceptable behaviour and what wouldn’t.
Don’t do it alone
You have been asked to organize the party but that does not mean you should work alone. Ask other friends and especially the bridesmaid to help. If you work together with the other girls, you are more likely to have a successful party.
Do have a budget
It is a hen party and not the wedding proper so you don’t want to overspend. Also, although you are the main organizer, you don’t have to sponsor the party alone. You have to ask the other girls to chip in something. While you don’t want to break the bank, you will want to have enough money to sponsor the party from start to finish.
Do ask the bride questions
It is the hens’ night but the main hen is the bride and she has to be happy for the party to be a success. That is why when you are organizing the party; do not forget to ask her preferences. Brides will differ in what they like. Just as one person will like to spend the night partying away, another will be happy with an indoor intimate party with very close friends. Before you go and look for male strippers in Gold Coast, be sure this is something the bride will welcome.
Don’t be afraid to dare
Traditionally hens night are for the ladies, however, there is nothing wrong in bringing in the boys. You could ask the bride and her groom if they will be happy to have a joint party.
Do buy fun party favours
You will find this in many hen parties and they are really fun as they will have the girls giggling like little school girls. However, before you go out to buy such favours, you should consider the bride. Presumably you know her better than anyone else at the party so you should be able to tell what she will like or hate.
Don’t think of the party as just another night out. You should try to make it about the bride. For example you could get cups with the bride’s name on it.
