County DurhamBucks Party Ideas

 

The trend of hen parties that began in cosmopolitan  cities like County Durham , 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 County Durham  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 County Durham , 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…”

Common Stag and Doe Party Mistakes

Hen Party Balloons

Normally the responsibility to arrange a hen party lies on the best man of the groom. Therefore the pre- wedding preparation must be planned in such a manner that it should be fun- filled and should be memorable. For that various things like hen party accessories, music, food etc. must be properly arranged.

Let's discuss about various things that a groom's best man must consider in order to arrange a great stag party.

Theme parties

Theme parties and fancy dress parties are livelier. So you should try and conceive some exciting ideas like putting a James bond theme, Halloween fancy dress theme or some other theme to make your hen party more exciting.

Music

In order to make the most of an exciting event, booking a karaoke hire can be an exciting option. Apart from this, you can also arrange for some good music in your party and all this together can make your party really unforgettable.

Games and other party stuff

To make your hen night fun packed, organise various stag activities like- playing cards, blackjack, bingo etc. Apart from this, you can also bring on some other stuff like spin a bottle, confession rounds etc.

Food and drinks

Besides fun elements, you surely would want nice food and a variety of drinks like alcohol, cocktails, etc. For this you can take the advice of your closest friends and accordingly arrange their favourite drinks.

Venue

Venue is the most important thing to be considered. Choosing the best and the most unique venue for your friend's hen party can be a little tricky.

Go for venues like a holiday apartment, or arrange a venue that is away from the city in order to make your party unrestricted.

Fix on the most suitable date

You would want all your male friends to be a part of the hen party. Don't you? Therefore it is necessary to choose the date that is convenient to all the stags as well as invitees.

Budget

The arrangements depend a lot on your budget. Therefore before planning a party, it is better to consider your budget before hand only.

You can always take the advise from the people who have been at stag parties before, just in case you are running out of ideas. Apart from this, you can also perform research on internet and find the most suitable stag party ideas.

You can also involve some other friends who can assist you in organising the best stag party.

Besides this, you can also prepare a speech for the groom. Being the groom's best buddy you should prepare a speech that is heartfelt and at the same time witty.

Other than this, you can also arrange a surprise gift for the groom to make the man of the moment feel special. For this, you can invite your buddy's best band to the bash or can arrange something that is in good humour.

Stag Party in Birmingham - Have Fun Before the Wedding

Hen Party Ideas At Home

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

Wedding Pictionary

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.

Rude Pictionary

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!

Five Interesting Ideas For A Stag Party

Stag Do Outfits

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?
