How to Have the Perfect Hen Party

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

If it’s your job to organise a hen party in Scotland, getting all the details spot on is vital to ensure a truly memorable occasion for everyone. Here are some essential tips to follow:

Set a realistic budget

Before you confirm arrangements for the hen do, get a rough idea of how much guests are willing to chip in for the occasion. Setting a realistic budget that everyone can afford is important, so that all guests can attend the event and take part in every activity.


Choose the location carefully

With the advent of budget airlines, jetting off to foreign climes is becoming an increasingly popular trend for hen parties. If you do go down this route, make sure that the time you spend on travel is significantly less than the time you have at your destination. Ideally, you want to maximise the time you have for the hen party and keep travel to a minimum.


Planned activities

The hen party should be focused on things that interest the bride-to-be, and with so many ideas to choose from these days, finding something unique and appealing shouldn’t be a problem. Going on a pub crawl adorned with L-plates is certainly no longer the default option for hen parties. It’s a good idea to choose a range of activities that will appeal to all guests, where the focus is on fun and bonding.

Quad biking, archery, treasure hunts… the options are infinite and allow you to have an unforgettable day! Think outside the box and come up with novel ideas for activities that the entire party can get involved with. Make sure you have the whole event well-planned, so that there are things to do in-between activities, or if there is a change of plan on the day, such as due to the weather.

Outdoor activities like mini-highland games and clay pigeon shooting are the perfect combination of fun and bonding; after all, even though you’re with friends you’ve known for a very long time, you want to take this opportunity to spend as much time with them as possible before getting married!
