DevonAlternative Hen Night Ideas

 

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

Stag Party Packages - Let the Good Times Roll

Hen Party Events

Are you tasked with the planning of a hen night party for your friend? Do not worry if you have never done this before because I will be sharing some amazing hen night ideas in this article. The important thing that you should remember is that you should let your creativity flow and think about anything that would surprise and excite your friend.

However, you should take away the wrong connotation that such a party should always contain booze and a male stripper. If those are not your thing, as most women I believe are, then you can always consider other themes to go for. And here is where I can help you with.

1. Beach party

Does your friend love the sand and the sea? Then grab your friends and head out to the beach. Rent a beach house with a beautiful view of the water so that you can always feel safe being close to it. You can start a bonfire and do all of your games and other activities around the sparkling flames. Of course in the morning you can always go out for some dipping.

2. Spa party

Perhaps the bride-to-be is a hardworking girl and you think she truly deserves some pampering and relaxation. A spa party would be great for her. There are many day spas that you can contact who are willing to help you out with your hen night ideas and even make their own suggestions. Some have their own bachelorette party packages which they can adapt to your preferences.

3. Sport party

If your friend is the sporty type then you can all go out for a round of your friend's favorite sport. Whether it's badminton, tennis, football, swimming, and even a marathon it is easy to organize one. Just remember to rent out a venue weeks ahead to make sure you all have a place to play in that is all exclusive to your group.

4. Road trip party

Get a car or a van, pack up some clothes and snacks and head out on the road whether you have a specific destination or not. Even if you are not sure where you really want to go, just the experience of bonding with your female friends while on a trip is worth it all.

5. Club hopping

There is always the option to pain the town red by going from one club venue to the other. Just remember to limit your alcohol intake if you want to visit as many places as possible within a single night.

6. Slumber party

Relieve the old teenage days by planning a sleep over. While this maybe one of the simplest and easiest hen night themes that you can think of, it is without a doubt a truly exciting one because you can take all of your cares away and simply have a great time with your friends. Of course do not forget the food and drinks on this one.

7. Shopping party

Of all the hen night ideas listed here, this one maybe a bit more expensive than the others. But if the bride-to-be and the rest of your friends love the thrill of shopping then this is perfect for you. You can even make it more specific or themed like a shoe shopping spree, dress shopping, or accessories.

Hen Party

Hen Party Props

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.
