Top 7 Hen Weekend Ideas
Are you planning a weekend-long hen party and looking for some ideas? Then look no further, check out 7 popular hen weekend ideas below:
Rent an Air Bnb
There are many options now for Air Bnb’s in the UK, there are lodges, houses, apartments and even stately homes. You will be sure to find something that’s in your favourite location, suitable for your number of hens and in the style to suit your plans. Hiring an exclusive place for the weekend is a great idea if you want to have a weekend-long sleepover with all of your hens. To make it even more special you can arrange to have your favourite food delivered, hire a cocktail connoisseur to keep your glasses filled with only the best cocktails and play games whilst you catch up with each other and have a great time. You could even have a classic sleepover one of the nights with girly films, pyjamas and nibbles.
Splash Out and Go Abroad
If the budget fits then book a long weekend to your favourite country or even try somewhere new, decide what you want out of your weekend to help you decide the location. If you are after a party weekend with late nights and plenty of opportunities to sample the local alcohol then somewhere like Benidorm or Magaluf will be a good place to start. If this sounds like the exact opposite of what you want and you are looking for something much more low key, then somewhere like the Amalfi Coast or a Greek island such as Santorini or Skiathos would be better suited to you. If you are looking for a middle ground between the two then check out Tenerife and Zante, they have the best of both worlds.
Book a Caravan or Chalet Near The Seaside
You can’t beat a weekend away with the girls to a UK seaside with the quaint pubs, arcades, walks down the beach and of course not forgetting the quintessentially British fish and chips. There are a number of options for accommodation near the seaside, with the main choices being a caravan or chalet but also not forgetting the popular holiday parks such as Butlins or Pontins. With the holiday park option, there will be more entertainment made available to you, not only during the day time but also the evenings with popular themed parties perfect for hens common at these resorts.
Get Tickets to Your Favourite Festival
If you and your hens are regular festival-goers then what better way to celebrate than partying at your favourite festival, surrounded by your hens, listening to your favourite music and creating a weekend to remember. To make the festival feel more special and like a hen party then arrange to have matching outfits, get some hen accessories, upgrade your tickets to V.I.P and upgrade your regular camping tickets to bell tents or whatever upgrade options they have.
Pamper Yourselves on a Spa Weekend
For a more relaxed and laid back weekend book yourselves onto a luxury spa weekend, spend some quality time with your hen’s whilst getting pampered and enjoying a number of treatments to help prepare you for the big day. Whether it be a massage to release the wedding planning stress, a facial to get the foundations ready for your wedding makeup or a manicure and pedicure to polish up those finishing touches.
Do Some Sightseeing on a City Break
Have you got a city on your bucket list that you have been wanting to see or somewhere you love and want to go back? Then why not go there for your hen weekend? You then not only get to spend time in a great city but you also get to spend the time with your hens, whilst enjoying the local cuisine and do some sightseeing. If you want to make the weekend really special then book yourselves a limo for a sightseeing tour or dine in one of the cities most famous Michelin star restaurants.
Relax on a Yoga Retreat
A Yoga retreat would be a perfect chance to spend time with your hens whilst taking some time out from the busy wedding planning. You can use this opportunity to surround yourself around nature and relax your mind, body and soul ahead of the big day.
There are many options for hen weekends now, allowing you to find something that works perfectly for you and your taste. The key things to think about to help decide what type of hen weekend would suit you is your budget, how many hens there will be and whether you would prefer more of a party or a relaxed low key celebration.
