Ideas For An Airy And Outdoor Hen Do
A hen do is one of the most important pre-wedding events for any bride-to-be. It’s her last night of freedom and the night that she’s supposed to go wild and crazy with all her close friends. The films and books depict a hen night as a night of heavy drinking and passing out but just like everything else, the times of drunk hen nights are changing. Of course there’s still alcohol but there’s a lot more than just that at hen parties nowadays.
For the hen that likes nature and outdoor air around her, here are some outdoor hen night ideas that are going to beat a hen party in London or other popular hen night cities any day.
1. Camping or Glamping Hen Night
Plan a night of camping outdoors with the entire hen gang. What could be better than getting away from the hustle bustle of the city life and enjoying a great, exclusive time with your hen gang surrounded by nature, the starry night sky and fresh air? Take some bottles of wine, games and gossip to keep the conversations and laughter flowing. If your gang doesn’t mind roughing it out in the woods, a traditional camping trip would be great.
However, if you want to take it up a notch and glamourise it, then opt for a glamping hen night. There are plenty of companies that help organise a glamping trip for hen nights. You can get in touch with any of the hen do companies and tell them about your requirements and needs, according to which they will be able to organise a glamping trip for you.
2. Outdoor Hen Activities
There are plenty of outdoor hen do activities that can add a touch of nature and adventure to your hen party. The entire hen gang can take a cycling tour of the entire city on bikes which can be customised with decorations to suit the theme of the hen party. You can also wear customised, matching t-shirts with ‘Team Bride’ written on them.
There are other outdoor activities like archery, football, shooting, go-karting, horse riding and more which can be organised by hen night organisers or you can also book a slot directly at the places where these activities are available.
3. Road Trip and Picnic
How about taking a road trip on the countryside and having a picnic at some scenic point where you girls can pop open some champagne and eat some great food that can either be prepared by the hen gang or you can get it packed from the hen’s favourite restaurant. This is a great idea for those who need a quick hen night recipe that’s memorable and also possible to plan and execute quickly.
4. Farm Stay
Another great idea to celebrate the hen night in a unique yet fun way is to go for a farm stay in the countryside. Not only will your hen gang be guests at the farm but also get a chance to help around the farm. This will be a lot of fun for you all. This one is specifically for the hen who likes to try out new things and doesn’t want a cliched hen do where all you do is drink.
For the bride that wants to bid adieu to her single life by doing and experiencing something new, this would be a great choice. The rest of the hen gang can also organise a small party at the farm itself with alcohol, decorations, cake etc. so that the bride can get a taste of both, a hen party and a farm experience.
A hen night should be celebrated with much enthusiasm and laughter. Depending on what the bride likes, a hen night should be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should be themed around what the bride likes. For the bride that likes to be outdoors these hen night options would be pretty incredible.
