Call it crazy, but some Brides just aren’t interested in having a Bachelorette Party that involves free-flowing champagne, penis straws, Bride-to-Be sashes and naked, oily men (hey, no judgement)! So, if you’re helping plan an unforgettable Hen’s Night for a girl who’s more into ‘sipping’ than ‘skulling’, here are nine less naughty, but just as fun ideas.
1. Flower Crown Making
Flower crown making has been one of the biggest trends of the year and it’s no surprise why; not only is it a great way for the girls (and guys) to get creative during the Hen’s Day, but guests also leave with something to wear out later in the evening!
2. Chocolate Masterclass
Everyone loves chocolate… right?! There’s no better way to start a Bachelorette Party than with a chocolate appreciation class. You’ll all learn the art of chocolate making and you’ll be able to eat your weight in the sweet, creamy goodness!
3. Weekend Retreat
Why have a Hen’s Night when you can have a Hen’s weekend? Look into local yoga or spa retreats and turn your Bachelorette Party into a much longer celebration.
4. High Tea
Nothing screams ‘ladylike’ more than an afternoon of high tea with scones, miniature sandwiches and cakes. You can choose to leave it alcohol-free or take it up a notch by including a few glasses of bubbly!
5. Dance Class
Whether you choose something traditional like salsa or ballet, or go for something racier like pole dancing or burlesque, dance classes are a great way to get everyone giggling. The best bit is you’ll get a workout while you’re doing it.
6. Treasure Hunt
If your Bride has an adventurous side, then a treasure or scavenger hunt might be a good option. You can create your own, or hire a company to manage it for you, gather the guests and traipse around the city following clues along the way!
7. Masterchef Magic
Get the Bride ‘wifey’ ready with a cooking class. Not only is it fun, but no-one will leave hungry and you’ll all have some serious Masterchef-worthy skills by the end of it!
8. Pre-Wedding Feast
Instead of filling the Bride up with champagne and vodka, book a degustation and fill her up with tasty food! Many restaurants offer set degustation menus and if you choose, you can match each course with wine. Such a classy way to spend the evening!
9. Fine Art
If you MUST include some ‘eye candy’, but don’t want to head into ‘stripper’ territory, maybe a nude life art class is the way to go. You’ll get a naked (or semi-naked) hunk to draw from afar, but won’t have to deal with any ‘hairy’ close-up situations.
