It is never too early to start planning the hen party, after all, it is almost as important as the wedding day itself.

A hen party is when the bride to be gets to relax and really feel special surrounded by her fiends and loved ones. How often in your life do you get all your friends from each section of your life together to celebrate you? A hen party is usually the only opportunity. So many brides tell us that the hen, after their actual wedding, is one of the most memorable weekends of their lives!

No pressure then!!


When the wedding date is secured you can start speaking to the bride to be about her hen weekend. Generally the hen party takes place 6 weeks or so before the big day, but this is just a guideline. Once you have a date in mind the next step is to do a little research for some good hen party destinations and ideas.

Why do I need to book so far in advance

ACCOMMODAION Alot of accommodation options for hen parties book out a min of 6 months in advance. Large Hen Party country Houses book out about 1 year in advance. Alot of hotels only take 2 hen parties on any given weekend so once their allocation is full they will no longer be able to accommodate your group. ACTIVITIES Alot of activities are similar in that the availability does not meet the demand so it is a first come first serve basis with bookings coming in more than 6 months in advance.
