Out of nowhere, you may be given the responsibility of helping with planning a hens night for your friend who is soon going to get married to her lifelong partner. It would be a great idea to give her a nice send-off, and the best way to do this is to host a hens night specifically meant for her. The main problem, however, is making sure that all preparations are conducted properly. This could be either easy or hard, depending on your current experience with event planning in general.
Those who require some sort of help to ensure that their work goes smoothly as intended should read these few tips to make their tasks a lot easier to perform. This won’t take a lot of time, so let’s get started.
Prepare Your Budget
It’s obvious that all of you are going to go nowhere without first spending money. But just throwing around your cash whenever you deem it to be necessary is not going to work: prepare a budget, allocate money to each and every thing you need for the party and see how many people can contribute to it. Split the total costs evenly between each of you to avoid conflicts.
Take a Look at the Best Places to Host the Party
Where would you like to spend the night? This is one of those decisions that you should not make by yourself. Get everybody to participate in the decision-making process, either by suggesting suitable locations or by providing feedback on what has been currently added to the list. If you want to get more for your money, try to find a place which offers extra activities that you can integrate into your parties, such as a floral crown making event or a course where you can learn how to make pizza in less than an hour!
Take a Look at the Event Pacing
A hens night needs to be engaging, so it is quite important to ensure that the event is well-paced. Try to balance out each and every activity and event you plan on having so that each one gets a certain time slot allocated for it. The idea of having Sydney topless waiters for the entire night may be quite tempting, but you will soon find out that limiting their presence to a few hours at most is a much better idea, simply because you won’t get bored of looking at the same people until the party is over.
Don’t Go Overboard with Craziness
People think that hens parties are all about pushing the boundaries of what’s considered acceptable, but remember to keep everything under a certain limit to avoid repercussions later on. It is alright to have more fun than usual, but you should understand what your limits are.
