Unique Hens Party Games

The ultimate Hens’ Party requires the right combination of class and sass. And that is not without some Hens’ Party games. You probably have girls at your Hens’ Party who do not know each other. With these fun games, you can break the ice easily and get the party started.

MR. AND MRS. QUIZ

Test the bride’s knowledge of her better-half. See how well she knows him. Meet him beforehand and get answers to some of the most generic questions like favourite holiday destination, favourite movie, etc. Give each hen a question and make them ask the bride. If she gets it wrong, make her drink a shot, put on a silly dress, or do a dirty dance step.

WHO’S WHO

Now see how well the bride knows her clan. Play the who’s who game where you ask all the hens to write a fact about themselves on a post-it note. It should be something very simple but, at the same time, hard to guess like ‘I hate Italian food’ or ‘I can solve a rubrics cube in 50 seconds’ or something more elaborate like ‘I almost lost my eye in an accident’. Give these post-it notes to the bride and see how many she gets right.

THE TOILET PAPER GAME

Toilet paper game, sounds absurd? We understand but trust us it is one of the best Hens’ Party games. It involves a lot of toilet paper, of course! You put all the hens into small teams. Each team picks a model from their group and creates its own version of a wedding dress on her using tons of toilet paper. And oh! Time the activity. The bride sets the time frame so whoever finishes in the given time and made the best dress wins.

NAUGHTY MOULDING

This game requires some play-doh and a dirty mind. This is one hilarious game and you will see how everyone will slowly open up while playing it. You can either play individually or put the hens into groups. We suggest you play individually. Give everyone some play-doh which they will mould into various body parts. Now it is your job to make it a little more competitive. Give scores for each shape; for example, a hand should probably have the lowest points.

A bonus tip: Play a naughtier version of this game after a couple of drinks.

DANCING QUEEN

When planning your Hens’ Party, make a list of songs and write them down on small chits. At the Hens’ Party, get everyone pick one chit and dance on whatever is on the list. That hen must dance alone and for the entire duration of the song. Make sure the bride does not chicken out. She is as much a part of the game as the rest of the hens.

 

Hens party on a budget

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.

  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Marshmallow Monologue
  • Finish Her Sentence
  • Forbidden Clothes Pegs
  • R-Rated Pictionary
  • Family In Law Heads
  • Never Have I Ever

This doesn’t mean you skimp on all the major and kinky stuff. While it’s smart to save money, it is also important to remember these events allow you to make some lasting memories. So try and make the most of it.

How to plan the most memorable hens weekend getaway

SOUTH COAST

A drive down the coast is a great way to celebrate your hens’ weekend on the beach. You may choose the usual Jervis Bay but there are some less popular spots as well such as Mollymook and Narrawalle. Pullman Magenta Shores Resort has everything that a hens’ weekend getaway requires. It is five-star beachfront resort with a gold course, spa, and restaurants.

KANGAROO VALLEY 

Kangaroo valley is another great place for a hens’ weekend getaway around Sydney. Head inland and wander around the Kangaroo valley region. Explore some lovely villages and towns. Their local cuisine and wine is known around the world. Not to forget the beautiful scenery the Valley has to offer; it’s one of the prettiest in Australia.

While you are there, don’t forget to miss out on the town of Bowrel. It is a sweet vintage place, perfect for eating, drinking, and walking around with your BFFs. You will find some cute vintage stuff at the shops there, perfect for your new house after the wedding.

HUNTER VALLEY

A hens’ weekend in Sydney is incomplete without some winery tours. Hunter Valley is just the right place for that. If your bride squad would love some lazy winery tours, plan a trip to the Hunter Valley. Book pampering sessions in the venue with body massages, pedicures, manicures, and facials. Spend the noon sipping some wine while looking over the vineyards.

For some wonderful wine tasting, don’t miss out on Tamburlaine Wines and Margan Winery. They have amazing food too so stay the night.

And oh, when visiting Mercure Resort Hunter Valley, make sure you don’t miss the five-star elegance and relaxation, this place has to offer. It will make you hate city life.

PORT STEPHENS

Port Stephens is a natural bay which is only 160 kms from Sydney. It makes for a great mini-break destination. New South Wales has forever been famous for its glowing white beaches but they attract a lot of crowd which makes them unsuitable for an intimate getaway. Shoal Bay, Anna Bay, and One Mile Beach are some of the wonderful places you can spend your lazy weekend on and they offer water activities too.

Regarding your concerns about where to stay, The Retreat Port Stephens and Middle Rock Holiday Resort offer all-inclusive accommodation packages so check them out before making your bookings.
