SomersetStag Party

 

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

How to Organize a Stag Party

Stag And Hen

A bachelor party serves as an event to convince someone that he made the right choice in finally tying the knot soon. It is also the last night that a groom-to-be has a chance to enjoy all the pleasures of an unmarried man. Basically, a bachelor or a stag party is a night of fun restricted to men. The arrangement of this occasion is left to the hands of the groomsman with the itinerary always kept secret to the groom.

Though the idea of this kind of party sounds carefree, its preparations can actually be complicated especially with the part where a stripper has to enter the scene. A stag party should play between the boundaries of naughtiness and appropriateness and sometimes that is just too hard to accomplish especially if men are tasked to arrange the preparations. Besides from that, the venue, food, and the program are also other factors to take care of.

One of the most important bachelor party tips that can help make things easier is to plan the event with a very good timing. Do not do it on the eve of the wedding because the groom needs to have proper rest before his big day. One smart choice is to do it a week before the big occasion on Friday or Saturday nights when most people are already free from their jobs. The next thing that should be considered is the food preparations. If the party has a theme, the type of food to be served should follow the selected theme.

If there is none, however, preparing finger foods like fries, burgers, pizza, and Buffalo wings are recommended because they can go well as snacks or with beer. If budget is sufficient, hiring a caterer is good but asking someone's mother to cook is also a good idea. Another one of some bachelor party tips is to choose the best place where the occasion will be held. Going to a stripper bar is a good idea but making sure that the groom will receive his deserved attention from the performers should be assured. It is never wise to have the party in crowded places with other people around because this is supposed to be a private event for the groom-to-be. Instead, doing it in a friend's house or a small resort can already suffice.

The last of bachelor party tips is the proper choosing of the stripper. In selecting a performer for the stag party, it is highly important to choose someone who is attractive, witty, and knows what she is doing. Make sure that the stripper to be hired knows her boundaries and has a couple of tricks behind her back. Request for an added twist on the performance. For example, ask the stripper to invite the groom to go on the stage with her and let her dress him in women's clothes for example. The ideas are endless to make this occasion as fun as possible. Only in this part of the party, it is important to make sure that the groom will not do anything that can make him feel guilty toward his bride-to-be.

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.

Great Pub Hen Party Games

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?
