Planning a hens party is both an honour but an equally daunting experience. The occasion is not only a celebration of her, but also commemorates the journey the bride-to-be, and all of her Hens have shared together leading up to this important milestone in her life. Take the stress away from planning an extraordinary Hens experience by avoiding these 5 common pitfalls in creating the special day.
Walking in Stilleto’s
In order to add excitement and variety to the celebration it is often customary to have two or three venues forming part of the celebration. Don’t make the mistake of overlooking fun Hens transport between home and the various bar, restaurant and club venues. There are some great transport options available that can become an added feature of the party from a PartyBus or LimoBus to a Stretch Hummer Limousine. Keep the all of the Hen’s together, avoid the stress of taxi’s and make the entire experience stress-free from start to finish.
Lining the stomach’s
Don’t forget to keep your inner diva’s fuelled and line the stomachs with a mouthwatering Hen’s lunch or dinner. It is a great conversation starter to break the ice amongst new friends and ensures that the energy levels stay high all day long! There are a range of food options available from light canapés to sharing platters to formal sit down dining, be sure to explore all avenues and don’t forget to take into account guest personal likes and dislikes (or allergies for that matter!)
A Hen celebration can often be a combination of indoor and outdoor activities. Ensure that a backup plan or Plan B is in place for adverse weather conditions…don’t be caught short or left with the stress of arranging last minute plans on the day!
The personal touch
