Hen nights are usually associated with drinking, clubbing, male strippers and general rambunctiousness–but you don’t have to drink at a hens night, and in fact many brides-to-be prefer to stay sober during this special celebration. If you’re looking to plan a hens night that doesn’t involve drinking, consider the following ideas that will still provide exceptional fun and great memories.
Escape Rooms are basically a “live game” where a group of people are locked in a room and have to solve various clues and puzzles in order to figure out the way to open the door. Escape rooms are great fun, especially if you go with a group that doesn’t mind going all out for this type of event.
Theme Park Afternoon
If the hens party group loves thrills, they will definitely love a theme park afternoon! Rides, carnival food, and smiles galore will fill up this particular drink-free hens night. Don’t forget to check the weather so you can be sure to go on a day when weather won’t get in the way of your fun.
“Classes” are probably not the first thing most people think of when they think about a hens night, but taking classes as a group can be shockingly fun. In fact, many group classes are actually designed to be taken by groups of women celebrating hens nights! Look for dance classes, pole dancing classes, yoga classes, paint classes and anything else that seems like it will liven up your hens night.
Are you up for something spooky? If the women attending the upcoming hens night aren’t afraid to be a little scared, then you could book a ghost hunting tour. There are lots of supposedly haunted places which offer special tours, usually held at night with flashlights, just to make things even spookier. A tour guide will take you throw a location while you determine whether or not you think there are really ghosts. Whether you’re as sceptic or believer, this type of hens night is sure to leave a lasting impression.
Of course, you could go all out and throw a sober weekend retreat at a special location! A weekend retreat at a cabin, AirBNB or similar destination is the perfect time for everyone to bond together through shared space and shared activities. The activities you partake in will largely depend on where you go and what you like to do; you might book a weekend at a cabin where you can go swimming and boating, or you might book a place in a campground and enjoy camping related activities. It’s up to you! Make sure you consult with the bride-to-be about what type of activities she would like to do, since the weekend is about celebrating her upcoming special day.
