ReadingStag Do Organisers

 

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

Include activities such as dinner, poker games, cocktail shakers or comedy shows to make the night out at the strip club more fun. Also do surprise the groom with tremendous guy gifts such as his best drinks.

Go to Vegas baby

Your secrets will definitely be too safe when you have the bachelor's party in Vegas as the city slogan purports. This man amusement park is filled with fun activities such as golfing, stripping clubs, nightclubs, gambling among other intriguing entertainment activities. However, activities at Vegas are usually expensive and you must make sure that all party goers are in a position to afford the activities.

Incredible Hen Party Ideas

Hen Do Party Ideas

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!

7 Great Hen Night Ideas

Posh Hen Do Ideas

The main goal of a Stag and Doe party is usually to cover fees for the wedding. But you can only do so if you budget carefully and cover all the costs related to the event. There are so many things to think about when planning such an event, and it can be difficult to cover all the aspects. So I decided to list the most common expenses related to Stag and Doe parties so you can turn in a nice profit.

First of all, invitations and flyers are essential when you're throwing a party. They are the first impression of the party and can literally make or break your event. Make sure you know exactly how much stag and doe invites you'll need and don't be stingy, nice looking invites can go a long way.

Hall rental fees and bartender fees should also be at the top of your list. Get a sense of the type of people you want invited at your party and choose the location carefully. Make sure the location is in a good part of town and go for a locale with a good reputation as the venue will be one of the main selling points of your party.

Before you chose a certain location, make sure you know if the security and liquor costs are included. Having to cover for security and liquor yourself can really hurt your bottom line. If you've never thrown that kind of party before, it can be hard to know how much liquor you'll need, so I suggest your go with a package that includes liquor so your bar doesn't run dry by the end of the night.

Now, you'll have to choose a DJ. Depending on your budget, you can hire a well known DJ or your run of the mill DJ service. However, if you go for an average DJ, you run the risk of having an average night. So if you can't hire a big name DJ, you can always provide a play list to whatever DJ you wish to hire so you can have control over the music. Not everybody likes the same type of music, so make sure you know your audience well.

Of course, there are some other expenses that you will need to take into consideration when you'll be planning your next Stag and Doe, but the ones I mentioned earlier should be at the on top of your list. But that doesn't mean that you should neglect the smaller details, since they can make or break your evening. So plan carefully and your Stag and Doe will be the party of the year!

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.
