For my hen night I have no idea what to do. I'm not interested in going out drinking, spa breaks, or activity courses. I want to do something different but not sure what. Any ideas???
For the last 2 that I organised, we rented a large house in the countryside, took a loads of hen party games, wedding themed movies, some drinks, plenty of food and just had a great weekend reconnecting. We ventured out for afternoon tea in our glad rags, played prosecco pong and sang some karaoke, and in one place we were lucky enough to have a hot tub. It can be as chilled or busy as you want - I'm hoping to do the same for mine. :)
I’ve looked at things like that dependant on personality life drawing so a mans willy
Or like Hayley says; go on air B&B tent a whole place and chill like 🥃
There's an activity app that gives the hens tasks to complete and they tailor it to where you are - team with most point wins. LOTS of fun
Get a chef in to cook dinner
Total wipeout / it's a knockout

What about afternoon tea 🤭
We did a tree house at Alton towers. One day in the spa and the second day in the water park. Was super fun. I've also been to one at center Parcs. One in Krakow for a weekend break. Depends what your budget is really to be honest. Center Parcs do some amazing spa breaks now! Xx

My maid of honour organised for us to do some pottery painting in the afternoon, I absolutely loved it! We spent the morning as a family, had a lovely breakfast then a walk on the beach and an ice cream
Pottery painting? The theatre?
Go out for a meal
I had two (perks of being from one country but living in another):
1. We had an afternoon tea, did a hand lettering workshop, and then went for a bring and share meal at one of my friends' house. We also played a few hen party games there.
2. We went rollerskating and had a meal at a friends' house again. There we also made bath salts and did other hen party games.
Lots of fun without the expense of so many other hen parties!
Afternoon tea? Or a meal out?
Go bowling and cinema xx

My step mum went to a shooting range and then to the local pub for dinner
My sister in law was pregnant on her hen do, so we went to a casino, got a meal and a drink and a chip to play with, it was a really fun night and some people ended up with nice little wins 🙂
I'm doing afternoon tea with a twist
A cottage with tea in on the first night and drinks and chatting, clay pigeon shooting on the Saturday morning then back for chilling and cake and tea in the afternoon before heading out for a meal (with the idea being no one to know we were on a hen do), then back for more drinks at the cottage. For me, it was perfect. Low key, relaxed but fun xx
