While there are people who love to go over-board with parties, especially if it’s their hens, there are an equal proportion of people who like to keep it a bit affordable. If you are planning a hens’ party on a budget, check out these tips. They will help you throw a hens’ party that is affordable yet inclusive.
ASK, DON’T GUESS
Don’t waste time guessing what your friend would like to do on her hens’ party. Simply ask. Speak to her to get an idea of what she has in mind. Some people are clear from the beginning while some are confused. If you are handling the confused kind, make sure both of you are on the same page.
Talk to her about the budget. This will give you a heads up as to how you should begin planning. A trip to Barcelona is not possible with her friends having only $100 in their pockets. So be realistic and practical.
HAVE A PLAN AND SEVERAL OPTIONS IN MIND
First, develop a rough plan including the date, activities, and costs; then, let everyone know. It’s much easier than asking everyone individually. This will also allow people to choose from the several activities that you have planned. Not everyone is interested in the same activities. This will further control the costs for those who have a small budget and ensure maximum attendance.
HUNT FOR DEALS
This one is important. Search around for places offering budget-friendly deals and packages. When booking a hotel, restaurant, cruise, etc. make sure to let them know that you are a hen party, you might get some discount. Search online for hen party deals near you and you will get a bunch of them.
BE AN EARLY BIRD
Just like you book your air tickets way before the season begins, same is the case with hen parties. Making reservations on time will help you save bucks. It allows you to get the best venues at your desired dates and ensures the majority of your guests’ attendance. Also, it gives your friends enough time to make payments. You don’t want to bug people for payments till the last moment.
PLAN LOW-COST ACTIVITIES
Go for activities that are less elaborate and costly. Ultimately, a hens’ party is just about having fun with your girl squad, playing games, clicking photos, drinking, and dancing. For a hens’ party on a budget, here are a few games that you can incorporate in your hens’ party.
