Posted on 1st August 2023

Planning a successful Hen party can be quite the challenge, especially when navigating through numerous details and coordinating everyone's preferences. Here's a some of the most common pitfalls and how to avoid them.

2. Trying to Please Everyone:

It's natural to want everyone to have a great time, but attempting to please every bridesmaid and guest can lead to decision paralysis. Each person might have different preferences, schedules, and budgets, making it challenging to find a one-size-fits-all solution. Rather than catering to every individual's needs, focus on the bride's preferences and plan activities that reflect her personality and interests. Remember, its her Hen after all.

3. Being Too Last Minute:

Procrastination is the enemy of a stress-free Hen party. Last-minute planning often results in limited options, higher prices, rushed decisions and negates the option to spread the cost. To avoid this start planning well in advance and book as soon as you can, we only require a small £50 deposit to secure your package.

5. Disregarding the Bride's Preferences:

While it's essential to plan a celebration that suits the group, it's equally crucial to incorporate the bride's desires. Sometimes, the excitement of planning a surprise can overshadow the bride's wishes. Remember to involve her in the decision-making process and ensure that the activities and theme align with her preferences.
