Hen party are fun and amazing. So why not turn this celebration into a hen party abroad? Perfect for those brides that love travelling, but not only, could be also a great occasion to spend some time with friends, away from the stress of the everyday life.
Like all the organised vacations, hen parties need a little bit of more attentions to details, sometimes it can turn into a little drama. If you decide to celebrate overseas start planning ahead and ask for the help of an expert.
Everyone will remember this trip in the years to come and for a stress-free trip, here below our top tip to plan the best hen party abroad.
Save the date and create a check list
Set a date for the hen party abroad is the kick off of the process. Consider two or three options, to give some flexibility. You are organising for a big group and is important to consider the everyday commitment of all the different people.
State a list of thigs to consider and be sure that all the different aspect of your vacation are covered. This is a must have and helps to take track of things to do and already done.
Decide on the guests list
After the initial excitement of doing a destination party, the step number one is to check that all the key friends of the bride are available for a hen party abroad. People can have personal issues and not being free to travel for different reasons. Unfortunately, if many people can’t make it, consider to do it at home.
Set a deadline whereby every person invited can truly confirm if they are able to attend or not. Once you have a precise idea of numbers, start looking into bookings.
Choose a destination
This is the fun party of every hen party abroad. Where to go? First of all, check the bride’s personal interests. She may even have already a bucket list to be inspired from. While picking the “where” also consider, distance (will you fly or take a train?), requirements to enter in the country (the less the better), distance from airports and the place where you would like to spend your holiday, accessibility of the place.
Renting a car or private transportation, is something that you will need to consider if you are planning to go outside big cities. Last but not least, consider the weather. Maybe visiting Faroe Islands during winter is not the best option.
Create an itinerary for your hen party abroad
Unless you want to spend your vacation into a SPA, choice that at Wed in Florence we completely understand and agree with, create a sort of list of things to do and places to see considering what the bride to be likes.
Share this list with all the hens coming at the trip and make preference order. This can go from a hot air balloon ride to a wine tasting. The most important is that everyone has to agree on what to do. This will help you to find the right balance between the fun and relax time. Don’t forget that you are there the celebrate the bride, not to have a personal vacation.
Set a budget that all the attendees can afford and start from there. Of course, is normal and reasonable that things will cost more than a night out at home, but people have different pockets and you don’t want to put economic pressure on someone for a such sweet occasion.
Get together before leaving for the hen party abroad. This will avoid any awkward first meeting if you do not know already each other.
Prepare some stationary, like invites, a map of the place you are going to visit, welcome cards with the program of the hen party abroad.
Order some personalised items and props for bride and bridal party, like matching bikinis, tote bags, hats or flips flops. There are so many cool designs and things that you can find online.
