Planning a hen party for summer? Whether you’re besties with the bride-to-be or she’s your sister, organising her hen party can come with a lot of pressure. To help take some of the weight off your shoulders, we’ve shared a few of our best recommendations in a quick guide below.

1. Find the right venue

The first thing you’ll want to do is find and choose an ideal venue for your hen party. Hot sunshine can never be guaranteed throughout the British summer, but you should still assume that it will be warm enough to use an outdoor area for at least some of the party.

We’re big fans of large country houses and open venues with patios, verandas, and panoramic bifold doors. If your bride-to-be and her hens have easy access to both an indoor and outdoor space, they’ll enjoy the freedom to mingle and explore the venue as they wish.

2. Pick a date

While it might sound like an obvious step, the next most important thing should be to decide on a date and book. If you pick a date first and stick to it staunchly, you could end up scrambling around to find any available venue on that day – particularly if it’s on a weekend.

Our advice: make sure you choose a date on which most of the girls are available, but don’t stress over it too much if one or two can’t make it. Your main priority should be making sure that the bride-to-be and her closest friends will all be there together.

3. Choose your entertainment

Next, you’ll need to think of a few activities for your hen party to make sure that it’s an unforgettable experience. Think about the type of group you’ll be and try to consider the type of thing you usually enjoy doing together. If you’re a group of girls who love to party into the night, drinks and your favourite playlist should be on the cards.

And don’t forget that private entertainment could be a fantastic choice too. Not only will you save time and money by bringing the party to you, but you also won’t be inconvenienced by hosting every step. A few of our favourite hen party entertainment ideas include:

Our top tips for throwing a hen party in summer A five-step guide

– Cocktail lessons

Nothing says summertime quite like fruity cocktails, so why not shake up a storm at the hen party? When you book a private cocktail lesson, you’ll be served privately by a handsome host of your choice. What’s more, he’ll arrive at your venue with all the liquor, mixers, fresh fruit, and glassware you’ll need – so you only need to sit back, relax, and take a sip.

– Life model

Looking for something a little bit naughty? You’ll be guaranteed to keep all the girls entertained for at least an hour when you book a life model for the hen party. Once he’s given you your easels, let him sit back on a chaise longue placed elegantly on the patio or near the pool. If you’re inside, don’t forget to crack open a window – because things will start to get hot quickly.

– Butler in the buff

Want to host a proper hen party? If you book a butler in the buff, you’ll benefit from private service like no other. You can choose your host in advance, and he’ll arrive on the day wearing nothing but a backless apron, a cheeky bowtie, and a pristine white collar with cuffs. Give the bride-to-be the treat she deserves with a private party like no other.

4. Decide on a theme

With the right entertainment booked, you’ll need to think about whether you’d like a theme for the party. It’s fine to plan a hen do without one, but following a theme means that planning outfits, decorations, and other party details will feel so much easier. What’s more, you can get in touch with your private party host to make sure that your theme is perfectly accomplished.

5. Send out the invites

With all the finer details seen to, your last step will be sending out the invites to the girls. You can create custom invites online and send them after printing, or if you’re feeling crafty, you could handcraft them. Cryptic invites could work well for some hen parties, but we love funny invites the most – so why not simply send a photo of your handsome host instead?
