The trend of hen parties that began in cosmopolitan  cities like Birmingham , were amply supported by the presence of many lounge bars and pubs that were safe venues to host such pre-wedding events with professional bouncers and a discreet management ensuring privacy and fun, along with anonymity for the guests.

However, in the early part of the decade, bachelorette parties in Birmingham  were largely private affairs and rarely publicized until local news outlets did a feature on Hen parties being equivalent to stag bashes. The national newspaper focused on the growing trend of more women in favor of hen parties styled on the pattern of bachelor parties, including the stripper show and the reports published in 2005, took India – and the rest of the world – by storm.

This series of reports mainly centered around skimpily clad PYTs (pretty, young, things) dancing away in their bare minimum and highlighted the presence of male strippers who just stopped short of doing a Full Monty, free-flowing booze to reveal the craze that had caught up with the middle and upper-classes that threatened the wildness quotient of the men’s bastion i.e. Bachelor Parties!!

It also quoted event organizer, in Birmingham , plagued and pleased in turn, by the fact that  women planning pre-wedding Hen parties were requesting pole dancers and male strippers as declaring, “Hen parties are not limited to the elite class.” He added, “An increasing number of girls belonging to the middle class have approached me to organise hen parties. In fact, these girls have had some of the wildest hen parties arranged.”

Petite Bengali beauty and Bollywood actor, Riya Sen has also organised one such hen party for a best friend and says, “I think it’s great fun and I don’t see any harm in going really wild. That’s part of the whole idea – letting yourself go.”

Pretty model Pia Trivedi has a similar take: “The concept of hen parties is really catching up in the city. People have become as comfortable with them as they are with sangeet ceremonies.”

Finally, there’s Mohabattein actress, Kim Sharma, who is quick to emphasize that though she has nothing against the concept of Bachelorette parties, she does feel that “Letting your hair down is great, but freaking out doesn’t mean there’s a sleaze show on. Not that I have anything against them, but I think it’s important that people don’t go overboard with it…”

Five Interesting Ideas For A Stag Party

Hen Party Cottages

Your hen party is going to be one of the most exciting events leading up to your wedding. Though you are likely to be the center of attention at a variety of celebratory events such as your engagement party and bridal shower, your hen party is the event in which you can really let your hair down. Your friends and bridal party will be a part of the fun and there are usually no formal party rules, so you can be yourself and let loose. It is your last chance to party as a single woman so you should really make the most of it.

Most hen parties begin with dinner out with the girls, as well as a few alcoholic drinks. These adult beverages serve to loosen everyone up and make sure people are relaxed and ready to have fun. Following dinner, the girls might head to a lounge for a few more cocktails, see a show or go to a dance club. If you are planning your hen party, think about what you would enjoy doing most and then consider whether the other guests will like it. You want to make yourself happy, but not at the expense of everyone else. In order to really have fun, everyone must be comfortable and ready to party.

Many hen parties feature male dancers or strippers. A lot of girls assume this is a must at a hen party and for this reason they might discourage their friends from even planning a hen event. Remember, it is your party and ultimately, it is up to you to decide what makes you comfortable. The point of the party is to celebrate the end of your single years and to let loose in the weeks leading up to your nuptials. However, if you prefer a quieter evening and dinner with friends, nobody is going to dispute your choice.

If you are a party girl, your hen party is the perfect excuse to really go crazy. If you are celebrating with friends from high school or college, plan to visit a few of your old haunts. You can spend a few hours at the neighborhood college bar or even grab a few six packs of beer and head to a popular parking destination for kids. This gives you a chance to reminisce about the good old days and talk about your future.

Those who want to focus more on their upcoming wedding and make their hen party all about being a bride have plenty of options. There are a lot of adult-oriented stores that sell gag gifts and bridal paraphernalia to wear during your party. This lets everyone, those you are with and total strangers, know you are the bride and you are ready to party. Chances are good if you walk into a club or bar wearing an imitation bridal veil or a t-shirt that proclaims you as the bride, you will be treated to plenty of attention. Your friends might go out of their way to embarrass you, so if you are dressing up and drinking, prepare yourself to be the center of attention. If you are the kind of girl who loves to bask in special attention and party all night, a hen party will be the night of your dreams.

Hen Night Party Games to Play in the Pub

If you're organising a night out on the town for a hen night then pub he night party games are an essential part of the planning. Party games that you can play in a pub or a bar are a great way to get everyone in your hen group involved, chatting to teach other and most importantly having a good laugh! There are a number of different activities and games that are perfect for a hen night out and we've picked out some of our favourites which go hand in hand with a pub atmosphere!

Forbidden Words

One thing you can pretty much guarantee when you get a group of best buddies together is that there will be plenty of talking, and a hen night is no exception. Chatting and laughing with one another is an essential part of the hen night rituals and there's no reason why you can turn it into a game as well! Often talk will turn to the wedding, so a fun game to play is having words which must not be uttered for the entire evening. Anyone caught saying these words will have to do a forfeit or take a drink! Naturally the more you drink the harder it is to remember which the forbidden words are. Fun words to try are "groom", "wedding", the groom's name, and "bridesmaid". You could even try other words like "glass", "pint" and "wine" to make ordering drinks a bit more interesting!

Forfeit Cards

If you want a hen night of outlandish behaviour and lots of laughs then you shouldn't leave the house without a pack of forfeit cards. These cards are easy to find and will list a whole range of challenges and dares that girls have to do as a forfeit. They can be used as part of another game, for example "truth or dare" or in the above game of Forbidden Words. Dare cards might little challenges like trying to order a round of drinks without speaking, or they might be as raucous as trying to get a guy to give up his underwear as a hen night souvenir!

Mr. and Mrs. Quiz

This game might take a little preparation but is great fun to play on a hen night. Before the hen party, take some time to ask the groom and his friends some questions and put all the answers together. Then, on the night put the hen on the spot and see how well she knows her husband to be!

Good questions include:

1.    What nickname did the groom have at school

2.    How old was he when he had his first kiss

3.    What's the most embarrassing thing he's done when drunk?

The girls can then decide what punishment the bride has to face if she gets a question wrong. Will it be to take a drink or to do a challenge from the forfeit cards?

Great Pub Hen Party Games

Hen Party Presents

Organizing a Stag and Doe party can be intimidating to someone who has never thrown that sort of event before. Some people reach out to professional promoters to throw their party for them, but not all of us have the means. Some people make big mistakes that could be easily avoidable and this is exactly why I decided to write this article. So let me guide you through these mistakes so can avoid them on your next Stag and Doe party.

First of all, you have to keep in mind that a Stag and Doe party's aim is to make money. And to make money, you'll have to sell as many Stag party tickets possible. Forget door sales when it comes to Stag and Does, you will have to focus on pre-selling tickets weeks before the event. When it comes to tickets, don't be cheap. I can guarantee you that people will think twice about buying a sloppy looking ticket from a stranger, I know I would.

I remember one time, me and my buddies where organizing a concert and we had everything covered from sound audio to 5 foot tall posters, but the tickets where very cheap looking. When we were trying to make a sale, people would take a second look at a ticket and give us a "are you sure you're legit?" look. We ended up selling a lot less tickets that we could have because of this small mistake, so please, before you do anything, get yourself some professional looking Stag party tickets so you won't have to make the same mistake I did.

Another mistake people make when planning their Stag and Doe parties is choosing the wrong location. Some people go for the cheapest location possible. That is so wrong. My point of view is, if you wouldn't go to a certain place, why would anybody go? The venue can make or break your event, so choose an easily recognizable hot spot that everyone knows.

Some people fail to maximize their profits by sticking only to food, beverages and tickets sales. But there are many ways you can make money. Organize a raffle and sell tickets at the door. Do a 50-50 draw where half of the money goes to the couple and the other half to the winner. It's a good idea to give prizes throughout the night, but don't use the microphone for every prize to keep the party flowing.

Planning a Stag and Doe party is not easy, especially when you have no experience, so don't hesitate to ask friends you know who have experience in this type of event to help you. However, if you keep yourself from committing the few mistakes I mentioned earlier, you'll save yourself a lot of troubles.
