Cheap and Cheerful Hen Party Activities Everyone Can Enjoy


If you’ve been given the task of organizing a hen party, then you’ve come to the right place for advice. Whether this is the first hen party you’ve ever planned or you are a well-seasoned hen do planner, it can seem a daunting and overwhelming plan to put together.

So, rather than putting all the pressure on you, we’re here to help. We’ve put together everything you need to plan that fun and classy hen party that won’t break the bank.

Throw your own cocktail making class

Without having to leave the house and head to an actual class, why not throw your very own cocktail making class at home? It’s an easy way to save the pennies. You should choose recipes you’re familiar with so that you can teach others but to make it a little bit more fun, throw a couple of new recipes in there and see what happens.

Make sure you have plenty of alcohol and ingredients. Most cocktails are made from mostly juice drinks and lemonades, so it won’t cost as much as you think. You’ll need a chopping board, knives, cocktail glasses, measuring jugs, cocktail shakers and drink decorations such as little umbrellas and straws. You’ll probably own the majority of these items between you, so round the bridal party up and see what everyone’s got.

Cheese and wine night

Cheese and wine go hand in hand. In fact, there isn’t a better food and drink combination around. This a simple and fairly inexpensive hen party activity. All you need is some good quality products from your local market, grapes and lots of wine, of course. It’s a quiet and chilled type of hen party but if you’re entertaining the bride’s older family members or just looking for something a little more civilized, this is the perfect option.

Your own version of glamping

Why not set up a glamping hen party? The key to this activity is good planning. First of all, you need to search online for a camping spot that’s not too far away and check to see what facilities are available – some sites are fairly basic, others have touches of luxury. If you don’t fancy camping in a field, host it in your back garden instead. As for making the most memorable glamping hen do, don’t forget to:

  • Tell all the guests what supplies they need, such as clothing, sleeping bag, pillows, etc.
  • Ask around for tents to borrow – if needed – before considering to buy one
  • Take plenty of food, soft drinks and of course alcohol
  • Take board games and plan other games

Local night out

Why not stay local and use some of the money you’re saving to upgrade yourselves to VIP experiences at some clubs in your local hometown/city and, have a limo to chauffeur you from place to place? If you split these prices between the whole hen party, you’ll be surprised at how cheap it is. Make sure you’re all dressed up and wear the usual hen party wear to set it aside from your usual nights out.

At home spa

Spa weekend prices seem to be rising every time we look at them, but the idea of massages and pampered toes lure many hen parties into expensive weekends. Save the stress of unnecessary expenses by creating your very own spa at home using face masks, nail varnish, hair masks, scented candles and therapeutic music. This will help the bride wash away any pre-wedding nerves. Another option is to hire yourself a mobile beauty therapist to visit you at home. See if they do group booking discounts and everyone can chip in to make it cheaper.

Hopefully, this has given you some ideas to help you plan your bestie’s perfect hen do and create a night that she’s never going to forget.
