Ideas for Hen Party / Stag Do

Have you been tasked with the job of planning your best friend’s hen party or the ‘lads’ stag do’ but have no idea what to do, or where to start? If so, then look no further - there are SO many different and unique ways to celebrate this, whilst accounting for the bride/groom’s preferences to ensure the ultimate hen/stag experience!

Below we list some of the most popular ideas and activities that our couples ask us to help with planning:

Weekend away

Contrary to the assumption that planning a stag do or hen weekend away, does not have to be as complicated or expensive as it sounds, subject to where you travel too! Places in Europe, for instance, have become increasingly popular as the accommodation and drinks are much cheaper than in other parts of the world and there are always great flight and accommodation packages on offer which can make it much easier to plan! This may be a fun suggestion if you are looking to go that extra mile or to incorporate the surprise factor to give the bride or groom a memorable and special experience.

Party Locally/Cocktail Making

Too many of you to plan a trip away? Then why not book out a fancy club, private dinning experience or do something a little more creative but equally enjoyable, such as an exclusive cocktail making or beer crafting experience – learn from a professional how to make your favourite drinks all night long, whilst you drink them along the way!

Other fun and similar ideas (non-alcoholic suggestions) involve unique food/cookery classes or bespoke chocolate-making workshops!

Pamper Day

Not into the heavy partying/drinking or a creative experience and prefer something lower key and relaxing?  

Then how about booking a pampering spa day or various treatments for you and your bridal party, allowing you to offload any stress and have the perfect relaxation break!

Something more sporty

Are the couple into sports? Perhaps an adventure or outdoor activity such as quad biking, go-karting or paintballing may be more their preference then?

Other fun ideas include:

  • Afternoon tea
  • Girls’ night in – movies, facial treatments, etc.
  • Wine tasting experience
  • Relaxing Yoga retreat
  • Burlesque show/theatre
  • Go to the Races
  • Golfing weekend
  • Take a road trip
  • Bubble Football

…AND SO MUCH MORE!

The options really are endless and if you have been tasked with the job of planning one of these celebrations, try and find something that your bride or groom will relate to, so that it goes down a treat!

At Love Lydia Weddings and Events we love hearing about our couples’/bridal party ideas and equally enjoy recommending some fun alternatives to make that celebration extra special for the bride and groom!

We love hearing back from our beautiful couples. Scroll through a selection of ourLove Letters

Dear Love Lydia...

We were extremely fortunate to have engaged Lydia to plan our wedding last summer. She and her team were absolutely fantastic. It really made a huge difference having her assistance and support through all the planning. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her staff executed the day flawlessly. You really cannot go wrong with Lydia and to top it all, she’s an absolutely wonderful person.

Kyoko & Tosin

Lydia is amazing at what she does and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the challenges of a 2020 wedding. She has helped and supported us through the whole postponement of it to next year and we have complete confidence in her - when Lydia says she is going to do something, we don't even have to worry anymore! She has great contacts in the industry which has made the whole process so much easier having a marquee wedding, where you tend to need more suppliers.

Fiona & Richard

We are so pleased with the wonderful way everything was organised and co-ordinated on the day. Words just aren’t enough to convey our thanks. You made our day just perfect

Melanie & Lewis

Jay and I would like to thank you for planning our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Paul’s wedding day. It really took the weight off of our shoulders, allowing us to truly enjoy the beautiful occasion. Your nothing-is-too-much attitude throughout the whole planning stage and on the day, made us feel totally at ease and we couldn’t believe how relaxed we all were on the day itself! This was especially so because your professional approach put us totally at ease from our very first meeting. Many thanks, you are well worth your weight in gold!

Susan & Jay

Thank you Lydia and your team for the most unforgettable day. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Even though we commissioned your services a little after the initial arrangements were made, we felt that your hands-on approach was very reassuring and made for a magical, stress-free day. Thank you again.

Debbie & Jo

We don’t know how we would have done it without you! Your professional, yet friendly approach, really put us at ease during the whole fourteen month process. Thank you so much for arranging our wedding over four days in Albania. Your patience was extremely appreciated and your resourcefulness was second to none. Our guests were completely blown away with the beautiful venue and styling and are still talking about it several months later. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will never arrange another event without Love Lydia.

Antuela & George

I hired Lydia as my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Sardinia. I had to take her with me as there was no one better in my opinion. I have to say that Lydia has such a variety of skills and gives 110% effort into everything she does. Lydia was available to me day and night and nothing I asked for was too much trouble. Lydia treated my wedding like it was her own and wanted to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me. My family and friends have said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

Christie & Danny

As the groom with an amazingly organised wife I was originally against using a wedding planner but I’m not ashamed to admit I was wrong. Lydia was absolutely amazing. Not only did she help get our dream venue on the day that we wanted, she was brilliant all throughout the whole process. Constantly in contact and not mention on the actual day of the wedding how amazingly organised and professional she was. Liaising between all parties involved and keeping everything running smoothly.

Francesa & Roberto

Just to say a belated thank you for all your kind help throughout our wedding preparations. Your attention to detail and flexibility helped us to create the most perfect day of our lives. We had an incredible day making so many treasured memories. It was quite exhausting to be honest (!) but you took a lot of pressure off us which was super. Thank you again, best wishes.

Amelia & Oliver

Thank you so much for all of your support & hard work on the lead up to our wedding day & on the day itself!

We really appreciated all of the advice you were able to offer & for the recommendations.

Thanks again!

Charlotte & Alex

Thank you to Lydia and team for helping ensure a perfect wedding day for my wife and I. We, of course, highly recommend Lydia and her team as great assets for your wedding planning and on day coordination needs. They are professional, caring, and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Love Lydia Weddings & Events.

Gessica & Chris

A HUGE Thank you for overseeing our wedding day, you made it all feel effortless, and I speak on behalf of MANY people when I say what an outstanding job you did. We had an incredible day - I never imagined it would be that good. I loved every minute! Much love

Siobhan & Mick

We had the most amazing day imaginable! Although initially wanting to plan the day ourselves, it soon became apparent that more meticulous and time-consuming planning was required. Thank goodness for Love Lydia! No attention to detail was spared, allowing us to enjoy our magical day to the fullest. Everyone was wonderful and made us feel very special.

Monica & John

Nothing was too much trouble, Lydia was always at hand to alleviate any worries and ensured that any last minute nerves were quickly set aside. Thank you so much. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Amy & Tim

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all that you did to help arrange the most perfect wedding reception for us. We wanted to create the quintessential English Country Summer Wedding in Devon and you did! You were so great to deal with all the way through and delivered everything you promised, from the dressing of the luxury marquee down to the finer details. Thank you for making the experience so easy and enjoyable and taking the stress out of organising our special day!
