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:
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!
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!
