If you're in charge of planning the ultimate 90s themed hen party for a 90s kid who is about to get married, we're here to help.
The 90s introduced us to some pretty epic moments - from bopping to Britney, tuning into The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and begging your hairdresser to cut you 'The Rachel', it was a time that's hard to forget. Trust us, we've tried to forget acid wash jeans.
While we might be more than 20 years past the decade (gulp), there's no stopping you throwing an awesome 90s themed hen party for the bride-to-be, complete with a nostalgic 90s playlist, 90s inspired outfits and the best retro games. Incorporate these 90s touches into your party planning and it's sure to be the bomb.
The 13 Best 90s Themed Hen Party Ideas
1. Send Retro Hen Party Invites
Set the tone for an incredible 90s themed hen party or bridal shower with some truly retro invitations. These pastel invitations from Pixel Perfection Party can be personalised with the hen’s name and all the important details.
2. Buy 90s Themed PJs or T-Shirts
These 90s t-shirts come in a range of sizes and colours and we think they would make perfect hen party PJs! Think of all the fab hen party pictures you would be able to take all wearing these matching tees.
3. Give Traditional Hen Party Games a 90s Twist
Traditional hen party games such as the Mr and Mrs Quiz can be given a 90s twist. Ask the bride’s other half questions all about her favourite 90s bands and artists. We love this nostalgic 90s drinking game with cards such as 'Drink if you've ever killed a Tamagotchi'.
4. Fancy Dress is a Must
When it comes to 90s hen party fancy dress costumes you will have so much to choose from. Perhaps you want to channel your inner Cher from Clueless or dress up as the Spice Girls? Or maybe you just want to throw on some double denim and play at being B*Witched for the day? What are you like!
5. Don’t Forget the 90s Balloons
If you’re hiring a hen party house then spend some time finding some great décor! These I Heart 90s balloons are less than £5 for 10, so you can do some incredible decoration without breaking the hen party budget. Discover more cheap hen do ideas here.

7. Scrunchies Are a Must
Remember the days when all you had to worry about was heading down to Claire's Accessories to spend your hard earned pocket money? Chances are your purchase of the week was often a scrunchie!

10. Create Your Own Photo Booth
Create your very own 90s-inspired photo booth with these fun props. You could even use some of your house décor to create a backdrop.
11. Remember the Retro Drinks
Before prosecco and G&Ts were your staple night out beverages chances are you were a strict Smirnoff Ice and Bacardi Breezer kind of girl (or WKD if you were feeling particularly wild). Stock up on the retro 90s drinks, everyone will love them and you’ll get some amazing pictures with your retro beverages (strawpedos are not encouraged). Oh, and don't forget these funky 90s paper straws!
12. Create an Awesome Playlist
Creating an epic 90s playlist will be an event in itself! Boyzone, Take That, Westlife, Spice Girls, B*Witched and the Sugababes (to name a few!) all had amazing 90s hits that will have everyone dancing and reminiscing.
13. Capture the Best Moments with a Polaroid Camera
Capture all the hen party fun with a retro polaroid camera! The Instax Mini would be perfect for this and you could gift it to the bride after the hen party for her to use at the wedding. The Instax costs £69.99 at Argos – so if you’re having a hen party with 10-20 guests then each hen would only need to contribute between £2.75-£6.50 each.
