5 Tips for Planning the Best Hen Party Ever

Hen Party   /   Mar 8th, 2018   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-

There is a lot of responsibility to go around when planning a wedding. That’s why the chief bridesmaid is usually the one to take over planning the hen party. If that’s you, then you have a serious job on your hands. You have to balance the needs of the bride, family and friends, the location, what to do and lots more. But take a deep breath because we have some great planning tips to help you create the best hen party ever.

Picking the date

Picking the date can be difficult but you want to get it selected almost as soon as the wedding date is picked. That way people have plenty of notice and can plan for the event (and have their finances in place). If you are planning something that involves more than a night at the local restaurant you might want to go 4-6 weeks before the wedding to allow people to budget for both. As soon as you have the date and the guest list in place and the bride is happy with it, send out ‘save the date’ cards to everyone who will be invited so they know when the hen party will be.

Who will be attending?

One of the key points to organising a hen party is to see who will be attending. The blend of personalities and age groups can have a big impact on what you do. For instance, some of the older generations might not be up for a weekend clubbing in Ibiza (or they might!) while people with kids might not want to leave them for 2-3 nights. You might want to go white water rafting but is the bride’s 80-year-old grandmother up for it? She might be, but you need to understand all of this before deciding on what to do.

Consider more than one hen party

It might be worth considering more than one hen party depending on that audience. You might want to organise a fun weekend to Brighton complete with Buff Butlers, party games and cocktails. And you might also want to arrange a meal at a nice restaurant for all the people who don’t or can’t attend that event. Or create a plan where people can attend for parts of the hen party – maybe the first night is the meal and the second is the butlers. People can choose to be there for one or the other – or both.

Create a realistic schedule

If you are planning a hen party with more than one element to it, create a realistic schedule. If you do some outdoor activity then back to the hotel and out for a night on the town, leave people plenty of time to relax a little and get ready. If people are rushed, they won’t enjoy things as much so create a realistic schedule.

Have a Facebook group for the hen party

Most of us are on social media so the easiest way to keep everyone up to date about the hen party is to create a Facebook group and add everyone who is invited. That way you can share information, get replies to people attending and build up excitement – without the groom or any of the guys being able to see!

Hi there the butlers were fantastic. Really made it a fun start to our night out. Connor was on time and the other one was 20 minutes late but it wasn't a problem. Both very good. Thank you

Lee was our butler who we hired for 2 hours. We were a hen party of 11 ladies and can honestly say he was immense! He was experienced and knew exactly what he was doing without being asked. He came with games to play of his own and went of to make drinks without any promting. As the host of the hen do this was so good for me as it took the pressure off me for a couple of hours. Thank you so much Lee :)


Liam was a brilliant Butler at our Hen Do on Saturday night, great games and lots of laughs - Many thanks!

We had booked with another company who let us down last min, we booked a butler with Butler Bookings a few days before our event and they couldn't have been more helpful. Adam arrived about 15 mins before the allotted time and he was so lovely, he put us all at ease straight away. My friend got the shock of her life on her hen doo. Adam involved all of the lasses and poured drinks, shots etc, he even got into the hot tub with us. He was very polite and chatty and of course had the butler body and bum. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will def be booking again. Cheaper than the other company who let us down and I think a lot more professional. Adam was great, we all wish him the best of luck xxxx


Andy was brilliant! He got us playing tasteful but hilarious games which was a brilliant start to the hen do and really helped people to get to know eachother. Thank you!
