When you talk about hen or bachelorette parties, most people think of a large group of women in sashes and tiaras wandering from bar to bar drinking heavily. And while this may sound like a load of fun to some, it isn’t for everyone. So, let’s take a look at some great alternatives for that one last hurrah for you and your closest friends before your wedding.
Make Your Pub Crawl Something More:
If you and your best gal pals have your heart set on one more night of drunken fun, why not turn it into a game? As each guest arrives hand each one a list of tasks, photos, or situations they need to gather before the night is over. The winner then either gets a special door prize or just the chance to gloat about their mad scavenging skills over the rest of the party.
Learn A New Skill:
Is the bride to be a foodie? Does she love to take photos? Maybe she had dreams of becoming a master mixologist when she was in college. Whatever the bride’s secret, or not so secret, passion is, there is bound to be a class in your area. Afterwards, you can put your knowledge to the test and have a dinner party where each guest brings a version of something they learned. It can be a great way to bond while learning something new.
Murder Mystery Fun:
For the literary or theatre loving brides and her best ladies, why not put your heads together and solve a murder mystery? Choose a theme and let your imaginations run wild as you try to get to the bottom of this who done it! For an extra bit of fun, why not make it a costumed affair? Let the bride pick her favourite time period and give out special prizes for the best costumes. Then maybe hit up your regular bar for some post murder libations.
No matter what you choose to do, make sure you have fun and remember, it is the bride’s night, so make it all about her and giving her a night, or weekend, she will remember for the rest of her life.
