If you are planning a hen party that spans across the whole weekend then a fun activity during the daytime can be a great hen party icebreaker – especially if your group includes a lot of girls that don’t know each other particularly well. Take a look at some stylish hen party ideas – from relaxing spa days to adrenaline fuelled bridge jumping.

Foodie Ideas

Is the bride a real foodie? Whether it’s making your own delicious treats or being served a fantastic meal, any hen day activity that includes food is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Afternoon Tea

If you know the bride would love the idea of a vintage hen party then why not treat her to a delicious afternoon tea. You can enjoy a sophisticated afternoon of sipping tea (or champagne!) as you enjoy scones, jam and clotted cream. If the hen party includes a lot of people who don’t know each other well then it’s also a great quieter activity where the hens can get to know each other.
