It’s one of the best parts about being a bridesmaid – planning the hen do. It’s time to thank your girl for having you as part of her biggest day by organising a pretty big day yourself!
However, they can seem a little daunting, and a lot of the hen do planning advice you find can be outdated and twee. Here are our top tips on planning the ultimate hen party for the ultimate babe bride…..
YOUR BRIDE’S NOT BORING, SO DON’T PLAN A BORING HEN DO
The best hen parties involve some form of activity alongside dining, drinking and dancing whilst having bespoke elements relating the the bride-to-be. Think about the bride’s personality traits and what she enjoys doing, and then use this to go slightly out of the box to make it completely unique to her. CLUCK stays on trend with the latest activities & experiences, and creates bespoke packages to fit every brief, to make sure you can plan a hen do as stylish yet special as the bride.
AGREE A BUDGET FIRST
The number one tip to avoid money woes is – set something realistic between the organisers prior to the planning. There’s nothing worse than setting out an amazing itinerary to find out it’s actually unrealistic and unaffordable for most of the attendees sending you right back to square one with the planning. It’s likely different people in the group will have different ideas on whats “reasonable” – so if you’re not sure split the day up into parts so those that can’t afford the whole day will still be able to join in some of the fun. CLUCK will help you build the perfect hen party itinerary to allow for this. We have packages to suit all budgets!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
London is a big place, and you don’t want to be carting a group of 20 tipsy birds across town. CLUCK specialises in building packages with minimum travel time, so you can just focus on the fun. We are absolute experts on all that London has to offer, so relax…you’re in good hands.
DON’T FOOT THE WHOLE BILL
The most stressful part of hen party planning is getting payments from the group! There’s always a few in the group that take forever which delays the confirmation process and means you risk losing out! More often than not the lead hen ends up footing the bill on their credit card and spend the next few weeks (or months!) awkwardly chasing payments. CLUCK is here to help though! We take individual payments from each member of the group so you don’t have to deal with the stress!
LET CLUCK DO THE BORING BITS, SO YOU CAN JUST SIT BACK AND TAKE THE CREDIT
After building the perfect package for you, we’ll liaise with the various venues & activities, and confirm everything in one clear booking form. We’ll be your one point of contact and will liaise with the venues and activities on your behalf, to keep things nice and simple for you. We can help with every aspect of the day from accommodation, activities, food and logistics – which can be a major saving grace if you’re planning a whole weekend of partying!
All CLUCK hens will be also provided with a full itinerary that is sent to every member of the group, so you have all the important info you need on the day. This includes contact numbers, timings, addresses, menu options and all the important information, meaning there’s no more confusion and no worry of losing people on the way!
