MidlothianStag Activities

 

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

7 Great Hen Night Ideas

Hen Party Prizes

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.

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.
