DerbyHen Weekends

 

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

Essentials Required to Arrange a Hen Party For Your Best Friend

Hen Party Balloons

Among popular Hen Party Ideas is for the hen party to wear matching t shirts for the big night. Apart from looking fantastic, wearing a group theme outfit helps everyone feel as though they are part of the wedding. It's a great way of including friends and relatives in the bridal festivities. Not everyone can be in the bridal party, so by having a night where you dress as a group, friends and family can celebrate with the bride and be a part of her big day. A hen night is a great way to spend time with the bride, as on the wedding day she is obliged to speak with each guest, so this often means only spending a short time with each person.

You can wear the same colour shirts, perhaps opting for a black and bling theme, as most often the choice is to wear shirts with some form of writing on them. For example, the Bride may have 'Bride' written across her shirt, with the remainder of the group wearing 'Bride's Entourage'. Mothers can wear 'Mother of the Bride' or 'Mother of the Groom'. Or you can keep it really simple and everyone can wear 'Hen Party'. Whatever you choose to wear, it is always fun to dress as a group and it really sets the tone of the evening.

To choose what type of writing you have on the hen party t shirts, you need to decide what will suit the group best. The choices can include embroidery, screen-printing or to apply the text in sparkling iron on rhinestones. The latter option is fast becoming the most popular choice for bridal and hen parties. To find suppliers, the easiest way is to search the Internet with key phrases such as embroidery, screen-printing or iron on transfers, then email the suppliers for a quote.

Ask if you can purchase the logo and apply them to shirts yourself, or if you can provide your own shirts and have the company apply the transfers or embroidery for you. Iron on transfers are usually the quickest and easiest way to create hen t shirts, as some suppliers have them available to purchase on their website and they are easy to post.

Once you have selected your choice and placed the order, it's a matter of waiting for them to arrive and applying the custom logo to your chosen apparel. Matching group shirts always attract attention and will sure to be one of the most memorable parts of the hen night - great hen party ideas.
