5 Low Key Hen Party Ideas for Fun without the Fuss

Weddingsite and Mrs P and P are delighted to share some great advice from The Hen Planner for all those Brides who want great smaller Hen Party Ideas.

1. Pampering Session

Nothing beats a few hours in the spa with a relaxing tub, serene surroundings, fluffy robes, and a good natter with your girlfriends in the loungers.

If you book ahead, you can get the spa all to yourselves for a few hours so you can have plenty of time to relax in the whirlpools, saunas and some of the girls can go for treatments. Book a special treatment for the bride herself.

Afterwards, if the spa is in a hotel, head to the bar / restaurant for some lunch or snacks. If it’s winter, hot chocolate by the bar fire or some fruity cocktails for the summer season.


2. Chilled girls night in

A girls night in is a total fuss free option.

If you’ve got the budget, you could treat yourself and have it in a nice hotel, it is your last single girls blow out after all!

Have the chick flicks on in the background whilst you cushion up with your favourite naughty snacks, your favourite bubbly and just have a laugh.

The Hen Planner’s Tip…Bring the night to life with some fun party accessories and decorations from The Hen Planner Boutique


3. Shopping

Lunch and some shopping is a great, low key hen party option. To make it a little special for the lady herself, organise some VIP shopping in a department store or at her favourite boutique.

You could all chip in on a voucher so she can buy herself something during the experience and make it even better. Organise dinner or lunch for afterwards and keep it simple. Low key hen party sorted!

The Hen Planner’s Tip
We recommend Selfridges, House of Fraser and specialist lingerie boutiques to get the honeymoon essentials sorted.


4. Crafts and laughs

Get crafty! You’ll be surprised how much fun you’ll have. An afternoon of creativity, bubbles, cake and a gossip makes for a day of laughter and quality time with the girls.

Whether it’s learning how to make your own signature scent perfume making, creating your own flower crowns, jewellery pieces or even getting crafty in the kitchen by making your favourite guilty pleasures.

The Hen Planner’s Tip
It’s a really nice touch if you can create something that carries through to the wedding day. Eg. Jars, centrepieces, bunting etc.

This is something that will make the wedding even more special and give the bride something she can treasure forever.


5. Classy drinks

This is our favourite. Simple and stylish, we’re happiest having some nice drinks in a cosy and ambient setting.

Book a table, get the girls to dress up and head out for a night in a piano bar or an intimate cocktail bar. Have a few drinks, take some photos and just have a laugh ladies.

The Hen Planner’s Tip
The more exclusive and hidden the venue the better. A rooftop or outdoor area is key for the summer.
