Planning for a Great Party Event

Being responsible for designing a hen’s party event can be an enormous task! You are the person closest to the bride-to-be and you want to make it the best possible celebration for all who will attend. Not everyone is a natural organiser and these days you don't have to be - just do lots of research and team up with other bridesmaids for support. With a little planning and some foresight you can put on a function that will be memorable and great fun for all. Before deciding where and what to do, it makes sense to decide who to invite, then plan a reasonable budget per person and set a date. Deciding on a date can be a challenge, especially if guests are coming from interstate or overseas. The main criteria are that it suits the hen and doesn't clash with any other pre-wedding commitments. Once you have your attendance list, an agreed budget and a date placed in the diary, it’s time to focus on the fun part - where to go and what to do! Here are five things to consider:

The Location

Location is very important, so one of the first things to do is to find out if there is something in particular the hen would like to do on her special night. This could be anything from being pampered to dancing the night away at Maslin's beach in South Australia. You could be inclusive of other invited guests and share the load by asking them for some input, or make it a surprise for the majority of the group. Once you have an idea of what the activities of the party will be you can focus on the top locations that can best cater to your requirements.

The accommodation

This may seem like an obvious thing to say, but people are peculiar about where they get to rest their head at night. Some people are quite happy waking up on a strange floor or sofa, but they are mostly the exception rather than the rule. Paying extra for comfort will be greatly appreciated by all. Consider booking accommodation close to what you intend to do or you’ll spend large amounts on taxis. Pick out an attractive place to stay or host the entire event – contact our Hens Party Ideas Adelaide Team for some great ideas on self catering and venues.

The activities

Boredom will be your enemy. Make sure there’s always something to do, even if it's a game or two between other activities. You don’t want your group to be kicking their heels all day while waiting for the main event to kick off. Book activities in advance: there is a broad range of activities to consider – from paint-balling to high wire activities, from cocktail making to sunset cruises, from Body Painting & Make-up to Bollywood Style Dancing lessons and experiences. Your aim is to generate continuous fun, from relaxed laid back moments to fast paced frivolity.


The Party

The main event is everything, so make it memorable. You don’t usually go to a concert to see the support act. You go to see the main attraction. Once you have an idea of what the hen wants to do and an idea of where best do this, you can source a location to suit. This can be anything from a high energy party to some seriously classy pampering. The more you plan and book ahead, the more likely the party will be a great success.


The traveling

A large part of the event and fun can be travelling to the location together. The event starts the moment you step out of the house. It’s not every day or weekend you get the chance to hang out with all your friends in such a warm atmosphere and celebration of marriage, so make the most of it! You can hire transport to accommodate groups, or travel on the same train or plane together. The Hens Party Adelaide Team can help at all stages of the planning!
