7 Must Have Items to Bring to a Hen Party

Hen Party   /   Aug 2nd, 2018   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-


Planning a hen party is great fun – deciding where to go, what you want to do, who is coming. Then there are all the secondary things to think about, those must have things that finish the planning perfectly. To help you figure out what these are, here are some of the best must-have hen party items.

1. The costumes

Depending on the type of hen party you are having, costumes can mean anything from sashes with ‘hen party’ on to complicated, character costumes. The trick with them is to decide early what you want to do and if it is compulsory or not – not everyone might want to dress up as Catwoman or something funny. But you still might want to have something that ties the group together such as matching tiaras or badges.

2. The playlist

If you are providing your own music, get a hen party playlist together before the big day. You want music that puts everyone in the party food, maybe favourites from when you were younger or those songs that you just have to dance to. Load them up on a favourite music streaming app and have them ready to go with the press of a button.

3. Decorations

If the event is going to be in a hired hall, pub or even someone’s house then plan out any decorations beforehand. Balloons, banners, bunting and more can all be ordered with the bride’s name on it and will make the place seem like a hen party haven. You can even match it up with the costumes – at least for colours!

4. Entertainment

Deciding on what you want to do also means deciding on the entertainment or what activities the party will involve. This can be something like having buff butlers serving cocktails to guests when they arrive or running party games. It might be something like having a sit-down meal before going for some drinks then hitting the nightclubs. Prepare ahead to ensure you can book everything you want.

5. Emergency kit

Those little first aid kits should be with someone in the party – usually the most responsible person (if there is one) and put those little essentials it like plasters and repair kits for the odd wardrobe malfunction. Because someone always has one, usually at the worst moment!

6. The right footwear

Again, depending on what you are doing for the hen party, telling people what the right footwear is can be an essential step. Flat shoes when walking around town will quickly be a must-have if you don’t want sore and tired feet and high heels might work for some people when dancing – but not for everyone!

7. The recovery kit

A few essentials in a bag for the next morning is another must have for a hen party. A bottle of water, paracetamol for the headache, orange juice for vitamin C and some crisps are the kind of thing you will be thankful for if you wake up the day after with a massive hangover.

We hired a butler for a 50th Birthday party - we were a little worried as being a little bit more mature that we would end up with a butler around the same age as our sons! We had Andy and all we can say is .... brilliant! He was the perfect host he put us all at ease and took over our gathering for the next hour. He made the start of our evening so much fun and everyone had an amazing time. So if you are considering it just go for it and let them know about what would work for your group. Amazing thank you Andy, scores on the doors 10 put of 10 for your butler duties and buff well 11 out of 10 ! Thank you

I booked 2 butler's for a 50th Girls night to entertain a group of 8 girls. I was a little apprehensive as i booked as a surprise. Our butlers were Martin and David and they were absolutely fabulous. It was the best part of our weekend and will be remembered for a long time. They were very professional, fantastic sports and such good fun I really cannot recommend them enough. I would not hesitate in booking them again and all I can say is if you are thinking of booking them don't hesitate as you won't regret it. Thanks guys you made our night and the birthday girls night one she will never forget.

Our butlers were on time, professional and exactly what we had hoped for. They read the room well, played some great games and were generally all-round good fun. I’d definitely recommend booking with Butler Bookings, we were very satisfied with the service that was provided.

John was a butler and a gentleman! He made a good 30th into a great party atmosphere. Would definitely book again and highly recommend. Thanks again.

We were very pleased with our butler, Andy. He was an excellent entertainer, arrived in good time and got everyone up and doing games...even the more prudish ones of the group! We were a hen do group of mixed ages (from 25 to 55) and Andy adapted his games perfectly! He was super organised and so it gave us bridesmaids a break from our duties so we could just join in with the fun too. Everyone loved it and we were lucky to have him! Please pass on our thanks again! Lucy

Absolutely excellent. I hired 2 butlers for a party of 14. They were very professional and great at entertaining. Kept the party flowing smoothly and kept everyone’s drinks topped up too. Great ideas for ice-breaker games. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Very friendly, personable butlers. Easy going and full of good suggestions. Directed a group of 20 women very confidently in games. Very pleased. Many thanks :)

I cannot fault butler bookings, communication was great from start to finish and we had such a good laugh with the two butlers, Marc and Kieran. They played games with us and always kept everyone's drinks topped up. Thank you both so much for being awesome and making my sisters hen do one to remember!

Rachael

Brilliant service. ‘Dave’ the butler was amazing, served drinks, got involved in all of the games and brought lots of laughs to my family and friends. Would definitely use and recommend this service again. All 30+ of my hen party guests all came to me afterwards to say how fantastic he was with everyone, and my cousin (the bride) said he was genuinely a lovely person too. Thank you Dave and butler bookings 🙌🏼
