How to throw a theme hen party
Hen night is a traditional celebration of the last night of freedom of the bride-to-be. It is organised and hosted by the bridesmaids and other friends of the bride. There are several popular ideas for hen nights but a themed hen party is an assured success, if you’re confused about what to do.
Choosing from a range of themes and hen party destinations can be confusing and difficult, so here’s a guide to help you plan and throw a themed hen do…
To throw a theme party, you should have the hen do guest list ready. A theme party is more fun and successful when you have a good number of people attending it. So it’s important to have enough number of girls attending the party.
Weather conditions will determine what kind of theme hen party you can host. If the weather is too cold or wet, then your options can be restricted to themes where you will have to organise the party indoors and it will also affect your clothing choices. So definitely take the weather as an influencing factor when choosing a theme for the party. There are some themes that go well with the summer weather and some that are apt for the colder months. So make sure you don’t throw a floral theme party in the peak of winters, because it just won’t go.
What does the bride-to-be like?
One of the best ways to further narrow down your options of a theme for the hen night is making a list of things that the bride-to-be likes. Keep it a surprise for the bride and don’t ask her what she likes. Ask her friends or maybe even her fiance and choose a theme that would be easy to organise. You should keep in mind that you will need relevant decorations, food, costumes, props etc. for the theme hen do. So choose a theme that will be easy to get all of these for.
Choosing a theme for the hen do will also depend on the budget that you’re going to set aside for the hen party. For a low budget hen party, you might want to keep a simple theme that will not require grand decorations or expensive props.

For example, if you’re planning a destination hen do in London or anywhere else, you can book a luxurious hotel venue, maybe hire a party planner and have an expensive hen party. It all depends a lot on how much money you can spare for the hen do.
