Have you been given the task of organising a hen party or bridal shower? No pressure, right?! As you’ve probably already guessed, there are a lot of plates to spin to ensure everyone, especially the bride-to-be, has the best possible experience.
Once you’ve booked the perfect venue, sourced or made all the decorations and stocked the fridge with plenty of bubbly it’s time to start thinking about some fun activities to keep everyone in the party mood.
Although it might be tempting to go into minute detail, we wouldn’t recommend over-planning as this can take away from the event’s spontaneity. On the other hand, when you’re in charge of entertaining a room full of people, it’s important to at least have a few activities in place. You never know when you might need a plan B.
Hen parties often bring together a mix of people. Friends and family that have previously never met, but they all have the bride to be in common. If you’re savvy you’ll be able to work in some icebreakers and games to keep everyone chatting and in the party mood.
Looking for some activities that everyone can enjoy?
There are lots of options available which allow you to take an established party game and make it unique to the bride-to-be and her hens. Below are just a few examples of this:
- Bridal Bingo
- Photo Booth
Putting your own spin on the suggestions above should give you a great starting point. Sprinkling a few games throughout the night will keep everyone engaged and allow a natural flow to the party, without being too much for people to deal with.
