5 Ideas for the Funky Bride-to-Be

Do visions of L plates, neon tutus and male strippers fill you with dread? Then step away from the willy straws – a hen party doesn’t have to mean a hangover! Here at Pink Welly Events HQ, we know that a hen party is a memory for life, therefore it is so important that the celebrations reflect our bride’s personality! Maid of Honour with a party to prep? We’ve got your back with a list of alternative hen party ideas for ladies who love adventure and experience…

1.    Girls Night Out
Swap bar crawls for a good old fashioned night of entertainment. If your bride is the shy type, she may prefer to sparkle in the stalls rather than on the stage and this is the perfect way to keep all hens entertained all night long. Gather your hens for giggles at a comedy club; prepare to get spooked on a ghost tour or swot up on your Cluedo skills for a murder mystery night. For something a little risqué, why not try out an adult hypnotist show or a cabaret night for extra laughs? 

2.    Get your Hands Dirty
And for the not-so-shy brides, get in on the action with group activities that scream bridal chic. Hens, grab your pens for a life writing class, (who said male strippers weren’t invited?) get the bubbles going with a cocktail making class or trade in your martini glasses for a chocolate making workshop! For foodie hens, cookery classes followed by a meal is a perfect evening option. Try out our garter making class for extra creativity and you may just find your own something blue! 


3.    Dancing
No experience needed, just pop on your lycra and give it some attitude! For hens with bundles of energy and fun, a dance class will be an experience to remember. Move over, Dita – from burlesque to Bollywood to ballroom, there are heaps of dance styles to suit your bride. Rock and roll for vintage ladies; pole dancing for sporty ladies and cheerleading for your bubbly brides. Take a look at our 1920s hen party package for a Charleston dance master-class to make Gatsby weak at the knees; vintage afternoon tea and a crafts workshop! If you don’t fancy dancing the night away, knock it down a notch and find your inner Zen with a private yoga class! Namaste.

4.    Under the Sea
Make like Ariel (minus the fins) with a hen party that goes off with a splash! Try your hand at diving, canoeing, jet skiing, kayaking or surfing for the adrenaline junkies out there, or for a relaxing day, opt for a river cruise, party boat or canal boat tour - don’t forget the champagne!


5.    Adventure Day
Paint balling and abseiling and horse riding, oh my! If your bride has a taste for adventure on dry land, dig out those pink trainers of yours for an exciting day at an assault course! Outdoor activities aren’t just for the Stags, try out laser tag or a treasure hunt for guaranteed competitive fun! If you like your adventures on the sweeter side, you will love an afternoon tea bus tour on one of London’s double decker buses. 

From Burlesque to Treasure Hunts, at Pink Welly Events we have a day planned for any bride. Take a look at our services and get in touch for unique hen party ideas and preparation. Simple, easy and sprinkled with fun to remember!
