Hen parties can also be an occasion where you can compare the adventurous products such as lingerie. “Consequences”, “pass the balloon” or “truth or dare”, are some of the common games played during the hen’s party. Some of the famous options for the hen parties include spending a whole night in the “City of Sin” or any other hotspots where a woman can let go of their entire hang – ups.
In a recent survey, it was estimated that about twenty percent of all hen parties have the presence of male strippers. But yes, these parties also have an erotic theme, adult games and large sprinkling of drinks. If you have a look at some of the famous bars in your city, don’t be shocked to see a hen party going on.
It is also known as bachelorette party (US), stagette (Canada).
The trend of hen parties that began in cosmopolitan India cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, 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 India were largely private affairs and rarely publicized until The Times of India 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, Rohit Chawla, plagued and pleased in turn, by the fact that Indian 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..."
We found during a random poll for this feature that this is a point echoed by many Indian bridesmaids and brides-to-be regarding the growing interest about hen parties in India..
Few Stag Party Ideas For Stag Weekends
As if organising a hen party isn't difficult enough without having to organise games too! Games are a great idea if you're organising a hen night and not everybody knows each other or you're worried about people getting separated and want something to keep everybody entertained.
Hen party games come in so many types - with or without alcohol, tame or highly embarrassing, expensive or cheap - so it can be difficult to choose the game that will suit you best.
This can be a lot of pressure - coming up with a game that everybody will want play is tricky because every hen party is different. Some groups may be up for anything but a lot of hen do's have a spread of ages and tastes so finding the right game can take time.
Here's some suggestions on hen party games that can help make your event incredibly memorable:
Amazing Hen Party Games
We all know and love Pictionary from our childhoods and this game is exactly the same but all the words your hen party has to draw are wedding related in some way - vicar, garter, flowers, groom etc.
Similar to Wedding Pictionary but a whole lot ruder. This isn't an appropriate place to put some suggestions but it doesn't take much internet research to find some suitably filthy ideas!
Hen Party Dares
This is one of the all time classic hen do games, known the world over. Each person/team is given a list of dares that can earn them points. The more embarrassing or risky the dare the more points it's worth - which team will get the most points?
Guess the Baby
Each hen brings a photo of themselves to the party, with all the pictures being pinned up with a number beside it. Each hen has to guess the name of each person in the photo and the person with the most points wins.
Toilet Roll Wedding Dress
Can your hens create a high fashion piece from loo roll? Split your party in to teams and each team gets a limited amount of time and toilet rolls to create a wedding dress. The bride to be then judges their efforts, awarding prizes along the way.
Pin the Junk on the Hunk
A very adult version of pin the tail on the donkey. This game can be bought as a kit from Amazon or Ann Summers.
Wine Tasting Challenge
Quite possibly the most sophisticated hen party game ever! Buy a selection of wines - red, white, fruity, sweet - and get your hens to blind taste each one while you read out the description and they have write which wine they think it is.
Never Have I Ever
This is a great drinking game and ice breaker. Starting with the bride each hen has to say something they have ever done - had sex outdoors for example - and each hen who has done it has to take a drink.
Two truth's one lie
This game is a great ice breaker if your hens don't know each other very well. Each hen has to tell the group tow truth's about themselves and one lie. The rest of the group have to try and guess which one was the lie.
Mr and Mrs Questions
This is probably one of the most popular hen party games around at the moment. Do a quick Google search to get some questions then ask the groom to tell you his answers before the hen night. Then when you are on the hen night ask the bride to be the same questions and compare answers for hilarious results.
Funny Mr and Mrs Questions
Very similar to the above but with a focus on questions that will have your bride laughing and cringing at the same time.
Rude Mr and Mrs Questions
A very naughty version of the above with questions of a highly adult nature!
It's hard having a penis
Is it really that difficult being a man? This hen party game lets you find out! All you need to do for this game is put a ball in a long sock and fasten it to your waist. The idea is then to knock over empty bottles by using pelvic thrusts as quickly as possible. The fastest person/team wins.
Pass the balloon
A really simple game, in which your hen party is split in to teams and they have to pass a balloon down a line of people without using their hands.
Shake the balls loose
This is a great booty shaking game. Fill an empty tissue box with balls and fasten it around a hen's waist. Then turn up the music and watch them try to shake the balls loose with their very best moves.
Shot Glass Roulette
A drinking game pure and simple! Each hen gets a shot and somebody spins a bottle. Whoever the bottle points at drinks their drink and then spins the bottle. That's it!
Pass the parcel with a twist
This is a game for hen parties who are up for a laugh. Each hen buys a fancy dress costume or some funny jewellery or accessories, which you then wrap in individual sheets of wrapping paper. You then play pass the parcel (whoever the music stops on unwraps a layer) and whatever is in the layer they have to wear.
Blindfold Penis Making
Give each hen party member a lump of clay and a blindfold and get them to sculpt a penis within a set amount of time. The bride to be can judge the best and worst attempts!
Grown up hungry hippos
This is a massive craze at the moment and great fun. You need plenty of room, some skateboards, laundry baskets, and ball pool balls. Put he balls in the middle of the room and split your hen party in to teams. One hen (you can take it in turns) lies on the skateboard with the laundry basket and is pushed by the group in to the balls where they have to try and catch as many as they can. The team with the most balls wins!
We hope this selection of hen party games helps you make the perfect party!
