Who Pays For Hen Party Decorations?
Typically, whoever is in charge of planning the hen party, will cover the costs of the hen party decorations. They might wish to split this price between the hen party guests, but they should let them know these costs up front so that the hen party decorations are kept within budget.
Our recent survey around bridesmaid costs revealed that nearly two thirds of people think hen party costs sit with the bridesmaids/hen party attendees, not the bride - so whilst you can ask for everyone in the hen squad to chip in a bit, avoid asking the bride!
