The Essential Hen Party Planning Checklist Part 2

Here is your checklist for the ultimate Hen Party! Follow as much or as little as you wish, but here is everything you need to know for a fool-proof party for the bride-to-be. Continued on from part 1, part 2 gives you those final touches you need to do to ensure the hen party is a hit!

One month before

Double check all bookings

Although you may have repeatedly said to the transport you want picking up on the 1st of April at 7:00 pm, they could still get this wrong. You will want to double check and even triple check bookings to ensure the night goes as smoothly as possible.

As well as all bookings, double check with hens they know all important details. Mistakes can be made, but you will want to avoid these at all costs to ensure a fun night for all. As the planner of the hen party, it is your responsibility to ensure no stress for the bride!

One week before

Decorations, refreshments and outfits are bought

Of course, this will depend on the type of hen party you have gone for, but ensure all items you need are purchased a week before so that nothing goes amiss. Cheeky straws? Check. Cocktail mix? Check. L plates? Check. Party dress? Check. Embarrassing outfit for the bride? Check. Create a list of tick off items as you go.

Night before

Decorate the area 

Now you have all the decorations, it is time to put them up. This could also be done the day of, but if you have access the night before- even better! This gives you plenty of time to blow up the balloons, stick the banners up, set up table decorations and enjoy some time before the big day (the hen party of course).

Debrief the bride-to-be

At the point the bride might know the ins and outs of the night, they might not know a thing- this is when you need to debrief her on all the information you deem necessary in order to prepare for the night ahead. 

Relax & enjoy    

All preparations have been made, now it is time to relax and enjoy the night! Although you have been detailed, organised and planned the night to a T, remember to have a laugh and enjoy your time. The bride has only one hen party, therefore enjoy it as much as possible. If issues do occur, laugh them off- nothing should ruin your time celebrating the brides final moments of freedom before she becomes a Mrs.
