Whoever said girls can’t party? Women know how to rock some dance moves and sling some drinks just like the men do. They too like to bar hop or hire a limo and paint the town red. But why do all the stereotypical activities that are expected of a hen night? If you are a bride nervous about what the girls are planning, or if you are a bridesmaid wondering what to do about it, here are some ideas that will give you a laugh as well as inspire you.
Do Like Men
In this age of gender equality and open expression, why not do exactly what the boys do, only better? You can do a Sydney Harbour bucks cruise and hire some strippers, booze and waiters for a laugh riot. Imagine how fun it will be if you can do the same things as a boy… there is some freedom in letting go of your inhibitions and trying to see the attractiveness in half-clad women gyrating to a sexy beat. Let’s not forget, these packages usually offer interestingly themed waitresses too, so you might even pick up a hint or two from them.
A hen night is all about bonding and reconnecting to your best friends. One of the best ways to do that is to get rid of all distractions and go away. Take a flight somewhere cheap and spend the weekend. Go visit some relatives who live a little far away and take your friends with you as you explore the surroundings. Just grab the passport and go. Remember the movie Bridesmaids? It didn’t become a hit for nothing. Getting away from regular life (especially if it’s close to your wedding day and you’re swamped with chores and errands) and going somewhere for a recharge is a great way to spend your female bucks party.
If you can afford to, go crazy with the fangirling. If you know the bride is crazy about a particular performer, check whether he or she can be booked for an evening. If not, there are plenty of lookalikes who do guest appearances. Decorate the room up with posters that proclaim your fandom and turn it into a costume party so that everyone can have a bit of fun and be a bit silly. For example if you are a Harry Potter fan, then you can get food that is inspired by the books, like butter beer and pumpkin juice. You can wear the Hogwarts school uniform and maybe binge watch the movies. Whatever you do, as long as you have fun that’s all that matters.
