In Hen Party Planning Tips 12 Dec 2019

Ladies, we all love surprises and giving the bride to be a nice surprise on the hen party is no different. The hen party is about giving the bride to be her last big night out with her girls and also making her feel like a queen in the process. We’ve got some fantastic ideas of things you can plan to do just that! All of these ideas are sure to leave her smiling from ear to ear and make her feel really special.

So let’s get into the ideas and see what they’re all about. This is our top Hen Party Surprises for the bride!

1. A Handwritten Letter from the Groom

Ladies, when is the last time you wrote a letter by hand? When is the last time you received one? Getting a handwritten letter from her future husband is something the bride to be will never expect! Ask him to write something by hand a few weeks before the hen party and when it comes around, give the bride to be the letter.

She can read the letter to herself, or she can read it out loud. The choice is hers. But one thing’s for’ll catch her by surprise and she’ll love the gesture!

2. First Year of Marriage - Special Events Hamper

The bride and groom will love the first year of their marriage. So why not put together a hamper of things they can use to celebrate each of the main moments or occasions along the first year. Events such as their First Married Valentine’s Day, First Married Christmas, First Anniversary.

A few bottles of bubbly, a couple of fancy glasses and maybe something to open the bottles will make the hamper complete. Then, simply give the hamper to the bride to be when you get back from the hen party just to make sure it stays safe and arrives home in one piece!

3. Date Night Ideas Book

This idea is a simple one and can be doubled up with something else to add an even bigger surprise. All you need to do for this one is put together a little notebook that’s full of different types of dates the bride and groom can go on over their first year of marriage. They may have been together for a long time so they will know the ins and outs of date night. But this simple gift idea is great as a little reminder to do something fun every now and then.

4. Create a Personal Cocktail for the Bride To Be

We’ve all been on a night out and the bar hasn’t had our favourite drinks or cocktails. That’s where this idea comes in. Going from what the bride-to-be likes to drink, create a cocktail that has a few elements to it. If she likes liquorice then add some sambuca. Or if she likes to get a bit wild then add some vodka. Then just add a mixer like Coca Cola or Orange and watch her light up as the drink hits her lips.

These ideas are all sure to catch the bride to be by surprise and will leave her feeling extra special. Knowing how much thought went into the ideas will really hit home for her and might even bring a few teary eyes.
