If you've ever been to a bachelorette party, then you know that it usually involves a themed decor, lots of drinking, and male strippers. However, since the wedding industry is changing as time goes by, so do the bachelorette parties. More and more brides are deciding to make their hen party unconventional, but just as fun, especially since a hen party can be very costly.
According to The Knot, depending on where you live, it can cost you up to $2.000! Isn't crazy? It is, especially since there are plenty of ways in which you can spend your bachelorette night without having to spend thousands of dollars - even if the bride is an adrenaline junkie.
So if you're looking for an unusual Hens night ideas, you're in the right place - without further ado, let's get to it.
If you at least once took part in a wedding, you probably have the gown lying around somewhere in your wardrobe. So, instead of keeping it there and letting it collect dust, why don't you wear it one last time for something fun?
Paintball is always entertaining, but have you ever tried playing it in a wedding attire? That's a whole different level. If you don't have a gown just laying around, you can go to the thrift shop. To make the entire experience even more fun, try to find the most hideous dress you have ever seen - just imagine the photos.
However, there are some things that you need to remember if you want to organize this type of bachelorette party. For example:
schedule it earlier than you would a traditional hen party - unless you want the bride to be covered in bruises on her wedding day.
if you can, you should rent the whole field - you want the people you invited to bond, and they can't really do that fully if there is a group of 12-year-olds running around. wait with drinking until after the paintball session - do you really want to give paintball guns to a group of tipsy women?
bring a photographer - perfect for when you or the guests would like to go back to this experience (or if you need a new profile picture)
Bridal paintball is the perfect adrenaline rush before the big day. It's also a great way of saying 'goodbye' to the past, and 'hello' to the future.
Bungee Jumping / Sky-Diving / iFly
Now, this is a perfect idea for an adrenaline junkie. As people say - go hard or go home. No matter where you or the bride live, or where you want to organize her bachelorette party, there should be a company that offers bungee jumping or sky-diving.
However, while organizing this type of hen night, you need to remember that not everyone will agree to do it - no matter the reason. So instead of going for the real thing, try looking for iFly, or some other place that offers 'indoor sky-diving'. That way, the bride can still get her dose of adrenaline, and nobody will feel left out.
This is something that both the bride and the guests are sure to enjoy. As soon as the doors close behind you, you will feel the adrenaline running in your veins. There's probably nothing more exciting than having to solve multiple riddles and puzzles and look for the hidden items. Just remember to get the bride out before her wedding.
To get out successfully from the room, you need to work as a team. That's why it's a fantastic way of bonding - teamwork is crucial. And after it ends, you can go to a pub - after all, you will need at least a glass of wine to lower down your heart rate.
Get crazy one last time by organizing a bachelorette party scavenger hunt. Unfortunately, creating a whole list by yourself can be very time-consuming, and you might lose the fun of it in the end. Luckily, there are so many already made lists on the internet, that you are bound to find one that will suit your group.
To make it more suitable for a 'crazy' bride, you can also create a list of dares - their intensity is up to you. If you want them to be a little more risque, you can add things like 'find the oldest man in the place and ask him to dance' or 'get a piggyback ride from a stranger'. Get creative.
Bachelorette party is the last time when the bride can really let loose with her girlfriends as a single woman, so it's no surprise that you want it to be unforgettable for her. Though the process of organizing one is not easy, as you have to invite everyone and take care of all the details, the outcome is definitely worth the hard work.
So now all that is left to say is good luck.
