It has been a very challenging year so far, and for those organising a wedding and Hen Do, it has been extremely stressful.
Whether your wedding day has been postponed or you have opted for a wedding with little to no guests, you may find yourself having to re-think your hen party plans.
Fret not! Here are 10 of the best ideas for post lockdown hen parties.
10. London Eye
With the UK slowly returning to normality, there’s no better time to head outside and reconnect with what makes the UK special.
Climb into one of the capsules of the London Eye with a glass of champagne, wine tasting or even a chocolate experience to complement the views. You can even book a private capsule and get some great pictures taken with up to 25 guests.
Girls, there’s nothing better than taking your bride out for a wonderful brunch.
We recommend The Greatest Brunch in London, and you will expect live performances from West End singers, dancers and cabaret acts, immersive characters and an epic feast complete with bottomless booze!
8. Chocolate Party
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Remember, girls, calories don’t count on a hen do!
This is a must for chocoholics. A pioneer for the chocolate hen do party are MyChocolate. Located in London, MyChocolate run a chocolate-making hen do party where you are tasked with whipping up your own truffles, going wild with the decorations. You get to take home a big goody bag, too, what’s not to love!
7. Make Jewellery
Celebrate a hen do party in style by making yourself some jewellery!
With experts at Tatty Devine, we can’t think of a better hen do party for a crafty bride. If you’re a magpie for something shiny, you’ll get the chance to make a necklace or bracelet in a two hour session.
6. Spa Day
We all love a spa day, girls, let’s not kid ourselves.
Indulge in some pre-wedding pampering with a hen party spa day. Relax with your fellow hens, and treat the bride-to-be to a luxurious beauty treatment or massage ahead of her wedding.
5. Magic Mike Live
Not to everyone’s taste, but if your hen has a naughty side to her, there’s nothing better than Magic Mike.
With government rules being relaxed, live shows are on the return. This live version of Channing Tatum’s film is sexy, raunchy and a damn good time.
4. Virtual Hen Party
God bless virtual get togethers. They have certainly helped us through this tough period, keeping us connected to our loved ones.
A virtual hen party may not feel the same as a full weekend away with the girls, but it does allow some form of a party to still go ahead. With the right guest list and plenty of planning, this can still be just as much fun!
Things to consider:
- Party theme
- Food and drink
- Fun games
3. Weekend Away
Having a weekend away for your hen do in the UK will never be more popular, especially with travel restrictions of the pandemic.
The UK and Ireland have endless opportunities to offer, and we think this has been heightened coming out of lockdown.
Fantastic places to consider:
Why not book a weekend camping? A perfect alternative to finally see your girls again.
A hen party picnic has certainly grown this year, and are a great way to celebrate your hen party whilst remaining safe.
Things to consider:
- Location – suitable for a hen occasion
- Number of guests
- Weather – dry weather needed
- Food and drink
- Games – suitable for the space
1. Post Wedding
Some call it a ‘sequel hen do’ after the experience of a pandemic and the ‘sequel wedding’ creation. With government rules, the sequel wedding was created to have another wedding day event to celebrate the wedding day with friends and family who couldn’t attend. So, why not have a sequel hen do party, too?
Our number one idea of a post lockdown hen do party is to create an event post wedding, allowing the bride to continue the much-needed celebration. Who doesn’t like a second party?
