We’re all different – and that’s what makes the world an interesting place. But, that means we all need a different type of hen do. After all, not everyone wants a butler in the buff and willy straws in their drink! So, we’ve put together a list of hen party ideas for every kind of bride.
The outdoor enthusiast bride
Not every bride wants to be cooped up inside doing face masks and playing prosecco pong – some want to use their hen party weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse themselves in the outdoors. At HenQueens, we’ve got so many houses to choose from, with many based in the stunning countryside – where you’ll be inundated with walks and fresh air adventures.
We’ve got houses in the Peak District where you can spend your days climbing mountains, hiking trails and dunking yourself in open water, and Devon, where you can put coastal hen do activities at the top of your agenda.
What’s more, we’ve also got hen do ideas to suit fresh-air loving brides – including a SUP (stand-up-paddle board) party, where you’ll balance on your board, float around a beautiful reservoir, and listen to the sounds of nature. You’ll be led by an expert as you explore landscapes and, for a quick calorie burn, you’ll even do a core-focussed yoga session.
If you’re up for travelling to Bristol, we’ve got the perfect hen party package where you’ll explore waterfalls, ancient forests and wild rivers. You’ll also feast on lobster and prosecco, and then embark on a five-mile walk (which includes a pitstop for gin and cake). What more could you want?
The ‘get me some zen’ bride
If you’re the type of bride who really needs to use their hen weekend to relax before the big day, then fear not, we’ve a plethora of chilled ideas. For the ultimate wellness retreat we’ve got a wellbeing package that will melt your stresses away – you’ll choose from one of our bestselling yoga sessions, as well as a facial and a massage.
Or, if you still want to be a bit wild but just want to add a few moments of calm to your weekend, then why not add candlelit yoga to the agenda – you’ll spend 1.5 hours in a variety of relaxing poses, to fully restore your mind and body. Alternatively, if you want to be a bit more upbeat you could add yoga disco to your trip – where you’ll get to flow, dance and laugh your way through a yoga class, while dressed in fancy dress, to your favourite tunes.
The Instagram-loving bride
For all those brides looking to get the perfect Instagram pictures on their hen party! We offer an Instagram tour – you’ll head to the city’s most Instagrammable locations (available in Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh) where you’ll be guided by a local influencer or expert photographer to make sure you get the perfect shot.
The passionate-about-prosecco bride
If you’re passionate about prosecco (or just having lots of drinks at your hen party) then consider staying in a house with a bar, or somewhere within walking distance from bars and pubs (we’ve got loads of houses to choose from to meet those needs!).
If you want to take your evening to the next level, then why not have international DJ Liv (she’s played at Pikes Ibiza, Miami beach and Insomnia Berlin) come to you – she’ll set everything up, and get the party started for the ultimate nightclub experience – just don’t expect her to play Spice Girls on repeat. All that’s left for you to do is pour the drinks and dance away the last night of freedom!
The creative bride
If you want to use your hen weekend to get the creative juices flowing, then consider filling it with crafty hen party activities. Or, even if you’re not creative, it might be something nice to do one afternoon during your trip as you recover from the activities of the night before.
We’ve got lots of fun hen party activities to choose from – including a flower crown workshop, where you’ll be guided through crafting the perfect headpiece. It’s also great for breaking the ice if your hen weekend consists of people who don’t all know each other! There’s also a chocolate making workshop for food lovers where you’ll be guided by an expert to create the perfect chocolatey treats to enjoy with your prosecco – and you’ll have a laugh along the way.
Or if you want something a little bit naughtier, why not take part in a life drawing class – with, you guessed it, a naked model. Now that IS a way to break the ice at a hen do!
