Tips to Help You Organise a Great Hen Party

Do not underestimate how much work there is to it – You will get a few grey hairs, on that good note.....

Start an excel sheet with all the name of girls invited, their Email or Phone number (Web texts are great!) then mark them in red if not coming and green if they are.

Set your date according to what the Hen herself wants and do not sway from that date due to other people – The hen is the only one that matters!

Select an activity and work from there – In other words if the Hen really wants to do quad biking find out where that is available and work from there. Something like a dance class or cocktail masterclass is safe as most people will do it.

Select a hotel that is close to the town, Bars & Nightclubs (I try and choose the hotels that are actually attached to the nightclub)

All Hen night packages should include the following in the Package: Bed & Breakfast, Activity, Evening Meal, Reserved area in a Bar, Nightclub Entry and Reserved area in Nightclub
Bed & Breakfast (Make sure that they do not quote you for a Triple room and conveniently forget to tell you that the twin room is actually €30 more and you dont find out until you get to the hotel & find out check in time alot not till after 3pm & find out what the last day you can cancel a room without there being a cancellation fee)

The Activity - (try keep it less than 2 hours long and something that is not too far travelling time & something that will get people interacting.

Most hens have friends from every part of a girls life and therefore a big mix of personalilities – Get them mixing is the key or you will end up with “Groups”.

The Meal - (If you have it booked for 19.00 tell everyone it is booked for 18.30)

Reserved area in Bar – (Find out what time they will release it if you are running late & find out if you are allowed to wear hen gear)

Entry & Reserved area in Nightclub – (Find out what time they will release it if you are running late & find out if you are allowed to wear hen gear)

MAKE SURE YOU BOOK EVERYTHING BY EMAIL - Once it is in writing there is more of a chance it is actually booked!!!!

Once you get the Prices for the info above add €5 - €10 per person as if you are getting sashes or any of the extras below it will be impossible to get anymore off everyone once you have given a price. When you do give the package rate be prepared for some people to not want to do the activity and have that rate ready too.

Get a deposit off everyone as if someone is not giving a deposit there is a VERY good reason as to why and you can start sorting the maybes from the Definites.

I would reccommend getting everyone to settle in stages – first a €50 dep and then 6 weeks before the the final balance – Believe me i am in this game long enough there is nothing worse than trying to pay the hotel and activities etc on the day if you are incharge – Get it all sorted Prior to leaving then you can relax.

The most important of all – No matter how stressed you get when people do not reply or wont send deposits or give out about location, price, hotel or activity etc....DO NOT TELL THE BRIDE!!!!!!

Make it seem as easy as pie and SMILE!
