Someone saw it, liked it, and continued to like it so much that they then decided to put a ring on it. By “it”, we mean you. Congratulations! Whoever said romance was dead?
There are plenty of things to worry about when it comes to planning your wedding, however, we instead find a lot of our anxious brides and grooms coming unstuck when it comes to looking for great outdoor hen party ideas, and less so about the actual wedding day itself.
That isn’t to say, of course, that throwing a fabulous outdoor hen party isn’t important! There are plenty of outdoor hen do ideas and outdoor hen do activities that are perfect for almost any bride-to-be. So buckle up, our lovely hens and brides alike! This is the ultimate list of great outdoor hen party ideas, and trust us, you’re going to want to be taking notes.
5 Unusual Outdoor Hen Party Ideas The Bride Will Love
1) Cosy Backyard Hen Party
Sometimes there’s just nothing nicer than cosying up with your nearest and dearest, watching the stars beside the glow of a roaring campfire. However, sometimes adding copious amounts of prosecco, lots of silly outdoor hen do activities and games, and a very excited bride-to-be can add a lot more fun to your night!
Go ahead and pitch your tents in the back garden, turn on your favourite tunes and get ready for an evening you’ll never forget. This is also perfect to incorporate a murder mystery element or even some silly life drawing activities if you’re that way inclined.
Looking on Etsy, you can find plenty of camping party decorations to really spruce up your backyard set up. Make sure you stock up on the campfire essentials, such as plenty of chocolate, biscuits, and these over-the-top giant marshmallows! These ones are from Tesco, but you can find them in almost any supermarket. We also recommend stocking up on extra blankets, jumpers, or anything you can think of to keep off that evening chill.
2) A City Hen Do Excursion
Whether you opt to take over a city that’s relatively close to your bride’s location, or you want to explore an entirely new area of the country, choosing to throw a city-based outdoor hen do will add a lot of excitement to your day. In a brand new city, anything can feel possible, so potentially embarrassing yourself in front of other stag and hen parties won’t seem nearly as utterly mortifying!
A day trip to London can lead to a world of opportunities, and create equally fantastic memories that the bride and her hens will cherish forever. From luxurious treatments at a private spa to afternoon tea on a traditional London bus.
You’re sure to end your night in style at a spectacular bar such as Bounce in Shoreditch, Tonight Josephine in Waterloo, or The Pergola on the Wharf (funnily enough!) in Canary Wharf! Turn this into an action-packed Great British hen weekend, complete with as much wine tasting and bottomless brunch as you could possibly want!
3) Beach Picnic Hen Party
If the sun is well and truly shining, there’s literally no better time to head down to your nearest beach, go for a dip and try to catch the tan of your dreams! Pack up one of these adorable hand-crafted picnic baskets from Etsy, grab your favourite girls in the whole entire world, and pack the perfect picnic before spending the day in the glorious sunshine!
This great hen party idea is perfect for any bride; as those who like to take things slowly can do so in peace, and those who live for adrenaline can take part in a variety of heart-racing activities. Whether you want to try your hand at beach volleyball or think yourself the next surfing superstar, there are plenty of private hen party activities and events that you’ll be more than encouraged to take part in.
4) The Ultimate Hen-Fest Experience
For the bride who wishes she was at Glastonbury 24/7, we present; Glast-hen-bury! Forgive us for the pun, but can you blame us for getting excited?! The Hen-Fest package by GoHen is a fabulous way to really celebrate, and this great hen party idea includes 2 nights away and a whole glamping experience. Complete with your own hot tub and a “Butler in The Buff” (lower your eyebrows, ladies). What more could you possibly want from a hen party outdoor activity?
However, if you fancied giving this idea a go yourself or even if you just wanted to put your own personal spin on it, Eastwood Hall is the perfect venue to host your outdoor hen party. We’ve got plenty of experience hosting fabulous hen parties at our venue, from outdoor space events to private luxury dining experiences. And if the outside elements get a little too much at your DIY Hen-Fest, consider booking into our hotel for the night.
5) A Hiking Hen Party Adventure
Lace up your boots and get to stepping; it’s time to go on a hike. Now, we understand that this great hen do idea might not be for every bride.
However, if you’re up for the challenge, this could be a fantastic way to bring all of your friends and family closer together before the big day. By downloading the AllTrails app, you’ll have access to some of the best trails and hiking spots in the UK at your fingertips.
Make sure to stock up on your essentials, and remember to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated while on your hike. When you reach the end of it, however, it might be a nice idea to find somewhere to rest. Consider a treehouse getaway for your bride and her hens for the night or even a beautiful log cabin or cottage in the woods!
