How To Plan a Last Minute Hen Party


The bride-to-be has announced she is getting married in a matter only a few months! This can only mean one thing, a last minute hen party organised by the stressed out maid of honour! With so much to do in such little time, it almost seems impossible you may say! Stay calm and fear not because this is not the case! We reveal how to plan a last minute hen party in style!

Who to Invite


A great way to start off the last minute hen party planning is who to invite to the celebrations! You may need your very own Bride-to-be’s opinion and values on this one so be sure to do your research! Whether she is looking to throw a big bash or just a few close friends and family members, be sure to give her what she wants! Not to mention, be sure to run the invitations past the Bride-to-be to ensure you are not leaving anyone out, we don’t want any disappointed ladies! The biggest question is however, do you invite the mum? This is always a tricky one as many ladies are different with some wanting their mother to share the experience, but can also sometimes limit the antics that happen at the celebrations! Do your research and find out the best decision!



One of the first things to do when organising a last minute hen party is to set a budget that everyone is happy with! For the ladies looking to splash the cash this indeed opens up more options and ideas for the celebrations! Or perhaps, for those who prefer setting a tight budget, there are of course many fun alternatives but it is up to the chief organiser to pick the itinerary for the day!

Hen Party Theme


Deciding on a hen party theme is always a daunting decision especially when the celebrations are only in a matter of months! For a hen party theme that is sure to go down a success, be sure to do your homework and find out not only what the bride loves but also her lovely ladies! It can be also elegant as a vintage theme or as hippy as a festival theme! So think costumes, décor, sweet treats and activities as they all link back to the theme!

Hen Party Destination


Choosing a destination for the last minute celebrations is always important as it can either be make or break! However, the destination sorely depends on the budget! Be sure that wherever you decide to go is centrally located for all the hens to easily access and close by to pubs, restaurants and any large towns or cities! Or perhaps, if you and the girls are deciding to go the extra mile, a foreign hen weekend is sure to please! Find a location that all the ladies are content with and that there is plenty to do!

Hen Party Activities


Finding hen party activities to suit everyone can be tough especially when it is so last minute! Start off by asking each lady what she loves and loathes! This way you can get a better picture of what activity to opt for! Not to mention, with it being the Bride-to-be’s special day, it is vital that you value her opinion and ensure shes has the most amazing day with her nearest and dearest! For a hen party activity that will suit all ages, afternoon tea or a spa break is sure to impress! Or for the more daring hens, there are also plenty of thrilling outdoor activities including kayaking, rock climbing, abseiling and paintballing to name but a few! It is all about finding a happy medium for the last minute hen party to go according to plan!

Hen Night Ideas


Make the last minute hen night one for all the chicks to remember! One of the most obvious hen night ideas is to head to a trendy nightclub where you will find electric atmosphere, upbeat music and fab drink promotions! However, this may not be everyone’s scene but there are plenty of alternatives that you should be aware of! Heading to a cosy pub or cocktail bar is sure to please all the ladies as it gives the hens the chance to test out a few tasty beverages as they enjoy a well-deserved catch up! With many clubs and pubs offering live entertainment every night of the week, the hen night is sure to leave everyone in high spirits!

Or perhaps, for those opting for a more sophisticated and relaxing hen night, wining and dining in a top class restaurant is always a good idea! From traditional to oriental dishes, the ladies will have the chance to try out something new to tingle their taste buds! A cocktail masterclass is another great hen night idea that you may consider! The girlies will shake and make a cocktail of their choice with a dedicated bartender at hand teaching them the tricks of the trade! From a classy cosmo to a signature strawberry daiquiri, everyone is guaranteed to be making the most of the celebrations! A last minute hen party will not leave you stuck for choice for an amazing hen night so be inspired!

Hen Party Accommodation


Hen party accommodation is a vital part of the celebrations so be sure to take this factor into deep consideration! The most popular choice of hen party accommodation is indeed a hotel stay! Be sure to check the availability and if the hotel allows hen party attire before making any rational decisions! However, last minute availability can sometimes mean cheaper accommodation, but more often than not it won’t! Or perhaps, for the larger groups, self-catering accommodation may be a more suitable idea! With a fully equipped kitchen, cosy bedrooms and spacious living area, this gives the ladies the chance to fend for themselves on the hen weekend and enjoy some valuable time together! This also gives the hens the opportunity to play some hen party games or dares! What a fab idea!

For the lovers of the wild outdoors or the daring hens looking to try something a little different to mark the occasion in style, glamping will definitely not disappoint! A quirky and fun accommodation option that is sure to have the ladies in high spirits! As previously mentioned, availability may be limited at such late notice but it sure is worth a try!

So there you have it ladies, we reveal how to plan for a last minute hen party to ensure the celebrations are a roaring success! Stay calm and organise yours today!
