Hen Parties

Are you getting married soon, and looking for creative ideas for your hen party? Or are you responsible for making the arrangements for a friend’s hen night? If so, you’ve come to the right place. 5pm.co.uk offers dozens of fun, fabulous hen party ideas the bride-to-be and her guests will never forget!

Hen Party Ideas

A hen party is a special “girls’ night out” for the closest friends of a woman who’s about to get married. The idea is based on the traditional stag night, where the friends of the groom celebrate the upcoming wedding.

Unlike a stag night, though, a hen night can take many different forms, from a night of dancing and drinking to a casual evening at home. Many hen parties focus on a themed activity, like casino games, poker, a cooking class, a cocktail party, or a spa event that pampers the bridesmaids and bride-to-be.

Hosting a “Pamper” or Spa Hen Party

A spa pamper party is a lighthearted way to bring the bridesmaids and other friends of the bride together for an evening of fun and beauty. And it’s easy to arrange one, either by booking a group party at a spa, nail salon, or beauty salon, or by scheduling a makeup artist or nail technician to come to you. Or, you can pick and choose more than one of the spa choices and set up your own salon at home!

There are dozens of ways to add a touch of beauty and pampering to your hen party. Some of the most popular include:

  • Manicure and Pedicure: Whether you take the party to the salon or bring a nail technician to you, a manicure and pedicure party is a perfect female bonding experience.
  • Makeovers and Make Up: A makeover party is especially fun for a hen night, allowing everyone to get customised make up advice to suit their preferences and complement their ensemble for the wedding day.
  • Hair Styling: Get a professional hair dresser to trim and style each bridesmaid’s hair for the big day.
  • Massage: This is a highly popular spa indulgence that’s perfect for a small hen party at home, or an all-day visit to the spa with the entire group.
