There are lots of different styles and colours of sashes you can get for the girls – whether the bride-to-be is a girly girl that loves pink or would prefer a more chic black sash, there’s a sash for every style! Check out websites like Naughty But Nice for a range of great sashes.
2. A Dare List
Remember, this is the bride’s last night of freedom, so a dare list of hilarious deeds to be done is a must-have for the hens’ party to let loose and have fun! A dare list ensures that there’s never a dull moment during the night and will make for many laughs and memorable moments. Possible dares you can add to the list include starting a dance-off or singing to the barman when you’re ordering a drink.
Remember to run every hen across the list before you go out, just so everyone’s comfortable with what they may have to do during the course of the night, should their turn come up.
3. A Memento Book
Of course, you’re going to need a photo album or special ‘hens’ night memento book’ of some kind to keep all the crazy memories in from the night! Hens’ nights usually result in lots of crazy photos and memorable moments that the bride-to-be will remember fondly. What better way to preserve those memories than in a specially made hens’ night memento book? The bride will definitely appreciate the thought, and it’s something that she’ll still look fondly back on twenty years from now.
A hens’ night is a great excuse to let loose and celebrate the bride-to-be’s final moments as a legally single lady. Having the right props and preparation will ensure the night is a success.
