Hens and Buck Nights
Hen’s Party Dos and Don’ts
Despite its attempts at equality, those trademarks of the bachelor’s party: drunkenness and the antics of a stripper are not necessarily a part of the hens night. In fact, a trend of late has been the notion of female bonding often in the form of a ‘pamper party’ where the bride-to –be is gifted with luxurious pampering items (or, for the more daring, a range of sex toys)
Often all guests are invited to a morning of salon style pampering, which can run the range of massages, manicures, pedicures, facials and aromatherapy. In this way the bride and her entourage can spend quality time together.
A few simple things to remember...
For those who are arranging the hens night, there are some very specific dos and don’ts.
- It is essential that the bride is never exposed to or expected to participate in anything that will make her uncomfortable. This includes those on the list of people being invited (ex-girlfriends of the groom are a no-no)
- Finances should be dealt with discretely. Costs should be covered by all who attend the hens night and the bride should not be expected to contribute.
- On no account should this event be too close to the wedding date. The bride needs to look at her best on her big day
- If there is a range of ages present, make sure that the entertainment is tasteful. Leave anything risqué until after the oldies have left.
- Remember that it is the bride’s day. Any game or prank should not leave her looking bad or feeling embarrassed. She must remember this evening as a highlight in the run-up to her wedding day.
- A token of remembrance for each guest is a great idea. There is such a choice available online, so spend time making a tasteful decision.
- A wonderful opportunity exists if you start a Facebook page for your planning. This allows everyone to be involved and able to give input into all aspects of the party.
- On the hens night, make sure that everyone lets their hair down and has a great time!
Take plenty of pictures and post them onto your Facebook site... well maybe just some of them!
