How to Plan a Classy Hens Party in Sydney

With the wedding planning well underway and the big day inching closer bridesmaids, female friends and even the bride herself, all turn their heads to the thought of hens party ideas. Traditionally known as a celebration of the bride’s last hurrah as a single woman, being tasked with organising the day, night or even weekend, can be overwhelming for any bridesmaid. No matter what you choose to do, planning a hen party is certainly not a small task. Not only are you trying to think and plan the perfect send-off for the bride, but you are also managing the schedules and needs of multiple guests. Even the most well-planned bachelorette parties often follow the same tired routine, and it’s hard not to fall into that trap. So how about a classy hens party in Sydney? 

While the big day is all about the bride and groom, hens parties should be all about bonding with each other before the bride enters married life, and are ultimately a perfect excuse for a fun night out with the girls. If you’re catering to guests of all ages, from older relatives to younger girlfriends, sticking to a classy hen night will prove enjoyable for every guest. If you’re looking to shake up the agenda and need ideas for planning a classy hens party in Sydney then fear not. There’s something to suit every kind of bride as they farewell the single life. Particularly useful if you’re a first-time bridesmaid, here is our guide to help you plan a classy hen night in Sydney that is sure to impress everyone.
 

The first steps for planning a hens party

Like we said, planning the perfect hen party is not a small task. The bride will be preoccupied with organising everything for the big day, so we recommend that you plan as early as you can in order to make the hen party seamless and unforgettable. Some important things to consider for the initial planning include:

  • Setting a budget. Different bridesmaids are willing to pay different amounts for the hen party. The most important thing is to speak with everyone contributing ahead of time and find out what costs they are most comfortable with.

  • Know your bride and your guests. Of course, you want the day to be perfect for the bride, so it’s important to know what she likes and doesn’t like (perhaps she has even hinted a few ideas or hen party themes to you). It’s also really good to not only know your guest numbers but also their general interests. This way you can ensure everyone is going to have a great time. Keeping things fun and classy is a great and easy way to impress everyone!
     

Ideas for a classy hens party in Sydney

Once you’ve got some logistics sorted out the fun part can begin: searching for which activities you are going to do! Just because you’re keeping things classy doesn’t mean you have to stick to mundane hen party ideas. Why not get a little creative, learn some new skills and bond with each other over a few laughs? To help you along, here are some of our top classy hens party ideas in Sydney.

Private Flower Crown Workshop

Flower crowns are a growing trend and learning how to make your own is a super fun activity to do with your closest girlfriends. Each guest can get creative and custom design their piece, all the while learning about different flowers and how best to assemble the perfect crown. Flower crowns are the perfect addition to all the happy snaps and Instagram posts from the bachelorette party and provides every guest with something to wear for the remainder of the party activities and even a special gift to take home (plus a new skill!) It might even inspire the bride to scrap wearing a traditional veil on her big day and instead choose a hand-crafted flower crown, something more and more brides are opting for on their wedding day.

Natural Skincare Making Workshop

Achieving perfect glowing skin before your wedding day is the dream of every bride-to-be. That’s why incorporating a natural skincare making workshop into a hen party is something not only fun but also super valuable, especially to the bride. Plus the class is the perfect way to relax with the group, and try out something different. Every guest will create a personalised skincare routine and take home three products as well as the recipes to recreate them again at home. It’s safe to say every hen party guest’s skin will be in top-notch shape when the wedding day comes around!

Shake Cocktails with Australian Native Plants

If flower crowns, or natural skincare, or other arts and crafts activities isn’t the bride’s style, and you know she just wants to get down to boozy business, then a cocktail making class is the perfect way to fulfill her needs! Using bespoke handcrafted ingredients, you’ll learn how to mix the perfect balance in a cocktail, all the while sipping away and bonding with the girls. Besides, what is a hens party without a few cocktails? To make it even better, your cocktail making hens party can be held in some prime locations around Sydney, like in Potts Point on a hotel rooftop with a stunning backdrop of the city, or in South Eveleigh surrounded by a native garden.

Bringing the day together

Now that you’ve sorted out guest numbers, budget and what exactly you’ll be doing for the hen party, it’s time to fill in a few of the blanks. 

  • Write a schedule: Planning out a rough schedule of how the day, night or weekend will unfold is super handy for you as the hen hostess as well as all the other guests, particularly if you have different people leaving or joining at numerous points throughout the party.

  • Organise transport: For most hens parties you will need to transport numerous guests from different locations, possibly at multiple times throughout the party. Organising transport early allows you to factor this into the cost of the day and puts the guests at ease so they don’t need to worry about sorting out their own way of travel at the last minute. 
     

On the day

When the hard work is over and the hen party is finally here, the most important thing is to have fun! All your planning and organising has come down to this, and if you have followed our guide, then you will most likely have an unforgettable and classy hen party ahead.
