The Benefits Of Booking Your Hen Party Early

24 Nov 2015

Your hen party is a one in a lifetime experience. It’s the chance to let your hair down after months of planning your big day, and wave goodbye to your single years with your best friends, so it’s important to plan ahead.  Over 90% of weddings are organised two, or even three years before the event, but a hen weekend is typically booked just 90 days in advance. Last Night of Freedom has rounded up exactly why you should book your hen weekend early.

Save the date
You have all got busy schedules, so, first things first, choose a date all the girls can make. Then, make sure you email everyone in advance, so your friends can plan their diaries around it (and let their other half know). This will also avoid any late drop-outs due to clashes with schedules.

Cheaper transport
We’re sure you’re aware that booking transport in advance is the key to cheaper travel, so make sure you take advantage of this. Another huge bonus with booking ahead, is that if you’re a particularly big group, you’ll be able to book seats together. And, this way, the party can start as soon as you’ve arrived.

Best rooms
Whether you and the girls fancy spending your hen do in a luxury, 5-star spa retreat, or renting a gorgeously glamorous apartment, be sure to book up nice and early to have your pick of the finest accommodation. Hotels, hostels and apartments tend to be snapped up very quickly, especially during the summer, and getting in there first will avoid disappointment.

Splash the cash
A hen weekend is a huge celebration, so you’re going to want to party in style. Make sure you and the girls have enough time to save up for the hen party kitty. Booking ahead also means you can pay for your last night of freedom with small deposits, rather than a large chunk of money. And, let’s not forget saving up for those all-important cocktails.

More availability
If you’re hoping to incorporate a particular event, such as a festival, or even a show such as the Dreamboys into your hen do, it’s vital to plan ahead to avoid missing out. Tickets for these events tend to go on sale well in advance, so check the websites and organise your hen party dates around this.

Destination and activities
You and the girls are sure to have your hearts set on partying in style - jetting off to far-flung corners of the globe, or visiting some of the finest cities the UK has to offer. But, remember to take into account that hen party activities do book up fast, and get more expensive as time passes – plan exactly where you want to go and what activities you want included, then book early to arrange the very best celebration for the blushing bride-to-be.
