Arranging a hens party can seem a simple task but things can get pretty nasty because truth be told, there’s nothing worse than getting a group of girls to agree on something. From deciding on individual contribution to planning hens party games, there are a hundred dilemmas that a bridesmaid could face. And deciding on whom to invite is first among the list.

A Surprise Party or A Planned One:

A surprise party isn’t a good idea especially if the bride is a choosy person and not too keen on surprises. She may want to know who has been invited. Besides how will you be able to contact people she’d like to invite?

Inviting the Mother of the Bride or Groom:

This is again a tricky situation, especially if there are some naughty activities on the cards. To accommodate everyone, consider splitting the party into two separate events; whilst one could be kept sophisticated with ideas like high tea or wine tasting sessions, the other can be as risqué as the bride wants it to be.

Inviting Friends Who Have Not Been Invited to the Wedding:

Isn’t it odd to invite people who have not been invited to the actual wedding? To be honest, no! Given the expenses and other considerations, couples often prefer small weddings. The hens party is a great idea to include those who cannot invite for the wedding. But make sure that the bride personally invites them and explains the situation so that they’re comfortable enough to come.
