The Boho Bride

Are you mad about  Cottagecore? Queen of the beachy wave and have a wardrobe full of endless floral midi dresses, this theme is for the nature-loving, wholesome bride-to-be.

Your perfect day or weekend involves activities designed to bring you closer together, allowing you to relax and converse over a glass (or 4) of wine during a wine tasting, pottery painting, or flower arranging.

Activities to try:

  • Spa day
  • Pottery painting
  • Cosy dinner
  • Wine tasting
  • Yoga
  • Flower arranging
  • Jewellery making

The Boozy Bride

Are you the life and soul of the party? Do you love nothing more than sinking a cocktail or two with the girls – let’s raise the roof! A typical hen involves drinking aplenty and for you, feeling the effects of a Pornstar Martini is a priority. Start with a bottomless brunch to get the good vibes flowing and make sure your stomachs are lined for a no doubt heavy hangover to come. Love a night out? Going ham on the disco-worthy decor, balloons, and glitter for the occasion will ensure you get that 10/10 Insta pic ticked off before you’re knee-deep in Sambuca shots and straddling the stripper.

Activities to try:

  • Boozy Bingo
  • A stand-up comedy night
  • A secret bar crawl
  • Hot Tug Hot Tub Party
  • Cocktail making class
  • Drunk karaoke

The ‘Can’t Sit Still’ Bride

Go, go, go – when there’s group fun to be had, there’s no time for relaxing! Who even needs sleep anyway?! If you can’t sit still and prioritise getting your 10,000 steps in over a night on the sofa, a jam-packed weekend of physically testing activities and team-building fun is what’s going to get your pulse racing. A summer hen might involve glamping in a dreamy countryside location, paddleboarding into the sunset, and horse riding through the hills, whilst a winter party sees you battling an escape room, 90s dance classes or disco dodgeball. Let’s keep it moving ladies!

Activities to try:

  • Scavenger hunt
  • Murder mystery
  • Go Ape
  • Axe throwing
  • Kayaking

The Food Lovin’ Bride

A girl after my own heart, the theme of this hen is all about eating real good and I can’t think of a better use of time or money tbh. Wedding season is a great time for food in general and there’s no reason the hen can’t be an extension of this, especially for the bakers, chefs and takeaway enthusiasts amongst us. Start the day with an indulgent brunch (Mimosas on repeat), followed by a late afternoon tea and finally a boujie tasting menu and cocktails to boot. Make the most of an excuse to go all out in the food venues you visit and you can guarantee it won’t be a weekend you’ll forget in a hurry!

Activities to try:

  • Walking food tour
  • Chocolate making
  • Cheese tasting
  • Cookery class
  • Luxury picnic in the park

The Pampered Bride

Do you like to take care of yourself, and looking your best is understandably a priority for your hen? A pamper party feels like the ultimate in throwback sleepovers, complete with face masks, mani/pedis, open-air rom-coms, and bubbles on tap, and there’s no better time to indulge in some serious self-care than in the run-up to the big day. A failsafe crowd-pleaser for besties, mothers-in-law, and grannies too, a day or weekend spent enjoying some serious TLC makes for ultimate hen party success.

Activities to try:

  • Blow Dry Party
  • Spa Treatments
  • Hot tub by the sea
  • Face gym
  • Open-air cinema

Or you could simply mix and match to create your dream day/weekend.
