Congratulations, you’ve made it onto the bride squad! No doubt the bride will now be well underway with her wedding plans and needs some help from her best gals. From helping her pick out the venue and ‘THE’ dress to deciding on a colour scheme and décor, the list of bridesmaids’ duties is endless. While many evenings will be spent all together with a glass of fizz (or two) creating Pinterest boards and trawling through Instagram for some wedding inspo, you bridesmaids need to link up separately to plan the all-important hen party. With so much already going on, you may find it all a little daunting, which is why we’ve created a complete guide to planning the most amazing hen party.
1.Let the bride-to-be know the plans are underway (you may stress her out if she’s left completely in the dark!)
2.Put together a guest list and create a group chat
3.Establish a budget and who’s paying for what
4.Decide on a location
5.Book flights and accommodation, if necessary
6.Buy hen party props, accessories and decorations
7.Buy matching t-shirts for the bride squad
8.Buy super cute slogan swimwear ideal for pool parties and spa retreats
9.Buy matchy-matchy PJs if the hen requires a sleepover
10.Choose what hen party games to play
11.Have a ball!

As a thank you to your maid of honour and bridesmaids for all of the effort that has gone into planning your hen party and big day, shower them in gifts galore with a beautiful bridesmaid box. A relatively inexpensive yet sentimental gesture, simply fill a gift box with trinkets and treats such as candles, cosmetic bags and practical things that they can use on the wedding day, i.e. matching PJs/robes so you all look photo-ready throughout the bridal preparations and lip gloss so that they can top up their smile throughout the day. Don’t forget to add in a special thank you card and maybe a pack of tissues for when they see you in your dress.SHOP all bridal
