Keep it You

With so many of your friends, family and maybe even fiance’s family coming, it can sometimes be easy to lose focus on what the hen do is actually about – you! When you’re planning the hen party, the best way of dealing with hen party stress is staying a little selfish throughout the process.

For example, if you’ve always wanted to try the popular cocktail making parties, don’t be swayed by your soon-to-be mum in law not drinking, she can grab a mocktail. Just remember that the day is about and for you.

Set a Budget Early

Setting a budget that all of your guests are comfortable with can sometimes be a challenge, but it’s definitely an element of hen party planning that you want to get out of the way. By setting a budget before you start looking at ideas, you’re dealing with hen party stress before it even arises.

Avoid Too Many Hands on Deck

For the bridesmaids, hen party planning is a really exciting theory – but avoid having too many hands on deck. If you’ve chosen to organise the hen party yourself, try to involve you and no more than two other hens. If your maid of honour has kindly taken the planning duties off your shoulders, make sure she doesn’t get swamped by ideas coming from too many directions.
