Unforgettable fun in the countryside awaits you

What is a Hen Party?

A hen party, also known as a bachelorette party or hen night, is a pre-wedding celebration exclusively for the bride-to-be and her female friends and relatives. It is a time for the bride to enjoy a memorable and often lively gathering before her wedding day.

Hen parties are typically organised by the bride's friends or bridesmaids, although they can also be arranged by family members or even professional event planners. The event is often held a few weeks or months before the wedding, depending on the preferences and availability of the participants.

The activities and format of a hen party can vary widely, depending on the bride's preferences, cultural traditions, and the overall theme chosen for the event. Common activities include:

Parties and Nights Out: Many hen parties involve a night of celebration, often with a theme or dress code. This can include visiting bars, clubs or even arranging a private party with games, decorations, and music.

Spa Days and Pampering: Some hen parties focus on relaxation and self-care. Activities may include trips to a spa, wellness centre, or beauty salon, where the bride and her friends can enjoy treatments like massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures.

Outdoor Activities: For more adventurous brides, hen parties can involve outdoor pursuits such as hiking, camping, water sports, or even bungee jumping. These activities provide an opportunity for the group to bond and have fun in an adventurous setting. At House Of Mulben we have shooting, fishing and archery. All great fun and in an idyllic setting. See more details on our Hen Parties.

Workshops and Classes: Hen parties can also be centred around learning and skill-building. Activities may include cooking classes, dance lessons, art workshops, or any other activity that interests the bride and her friends.

Weekend Getaways: Some hen parties are organised as weekend trips, where the bride and her friends spend a few days in a different location. This allows for more extensive celebrations and the chance to explore new places together.

It's worth noting that the nature of a hen party can vary based on cultural and personal preferences. Some parties may involve mild or risqué activities, while others may focus on creating a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere without any particular emphasis on wild celebrations.

Overall, a hen party is a time for the bride-to-be and her female friends to come together, have fun, and celebrate the upcoming wedding. It's an opportunity to create lasting memories and strengthen bonds before the bride's transition into married life.
