1 Old School Sports Day
If you are looking to plan an experience that is fun, energetic, and memorable then an old school sports day event could be perfect. You will transport back to your school years as you can have another go at competing in a sports day event! Go head to head in a range of different races like the sack race, egg and spoon race, and even the relay race. See who is the most competitive out of everyone in the group and who will be crowned the winner at the end of the day!
2. Girls Night
Sometimes there is just nothing better than getting all the girls together and having a night in at one of your houses. Get all your favourite drinks in, order a takeaway and get together the ultimate collection of chick flicks to watch throughout the night. This would also be a great time to get playing some hen party games to get everyone laughing and having fun together. Not only is this a fun hen do idea that everyone will love its perfect for those who don’t want to go too crazy with their celebration.
We have a great list of fun outdoor games for large groups of adults too!
3. Cocktail Making
Calling all cocktail lovers, this one is for you! A cocktail making hen party is a classic choice for girls everywhere and its not hard to see why. With this experience you get your own private area of a city centre bar. Along with a professional mixologist who will be running the class for you. Each person in the group will have the chance to create their own cocktail whilst having a couple more to drink throughout the session. To keep you all entertained the mixologist will also get you to compete in some games – its probably the most fun way to get drunk if you are wanting to hit the town for the celebration.
4. Hen Fest
Is your last night of freedom falling in the summer month? If so then this is the perfect excuse to create a festival themed hen party! We like to call this idea a henfest. This is definitely a fun hen do idea where you can go all out with decorations, outfits, make up, food and drink and more! The best part about this idea is that it can really be done anywhere, in your garden, a hired house, the maid of honours house – anywhere!
5. Dance Class
A great way to enjoy a fun hen do would be with a dance hen party! They are fun, energetic, unique, and there are so many amazing dance themes to suit every type of bride to be. If your main aim is to just let loose and create some amazing memories together with your favourite ladies then a dance class is the one for you. With an instructor included and a private city centre venue you will have everything you need to strut your stuff and learn the ultimate dance routine.
6. Pamper Night at Home
If you feel like the bride to be could be getting a little stressed and overwhelmed by all the wedding planning then a pamper night at home might be the perfect hen do idea. Not only is it a relaxing experience but it is also extremely fun if you are a group of girls who love a good pamper. Get some face masks, nail varnish, foot spas the lot and go all out and let everyone have the ultimate pamper session.
7. Life Drawing
Sophistication, class, and a little bit of cheekiness is what you will get from the fun life drawing class for hen parties! With this experience you will be able to try out a new skill with a tutor who will be running the entire class. As well as the tutor you will of course also have the nude life model who will be getting into all the different poses that you will need to try and draw. It’s a great experience and one that will let you get creative whilst having some fun.
See if any of these non traditional hen party ideas are suited to your group!
8. Hire a Party House
Sometimes the simplest of hen do ideas are the ones that are the most fun. Like hiring a party house for example. It’s a great way to relax and have some fun in a different environment and celebrate the bride to be. You could hire a party house that has a hot tub included or even a pool so you can chill and have some drinks outside in the evening. We have found a great blog that lists some amazing party houses in Wales that you might find useful.
9. Megamix Challenge
The megamix challenge is the perfect experience if you want something energetic and memorable but don’t want just one activity! This will give you a medley of 2 amazing sports activities all you need to do is choose which 2 you want to do as a group. Everything you need to get involved in both activities will be included on the day so all you need to do is turn up with plenty of energy to complete the day!
10. Create Your Own Bottomless Brunch/Afternoon Tea
Are you a group of foodies? If so then creating your own bottomless brunch or afternoon tea would be a great idea. Either get some finger sandwiches, scones, mini cakes and pastries or some breakfast items to create a brunch menu. And either food option can include some alcoholic beverages or tea or coffee depending on what your guests would like to drink. Nobody would be able to resist an experience like this.
