How to plan a Hens party?

Talk to the bride-to-be.

Before you start party planning, you should talk to the bride-to-be about her preferences. Does she want a girls night at home or want to book a hotel room for the celebrations? Which is the most preferred date for the celebrations?

Depending on the preference of the bride-to-be, you can start planning the celebrations.

Prepare a guest list.

The best way to prepare a guest list is to create a WhatsApp group of the girls. This way, there is less chance to miss out on important people.

If you are organizing the party, it would be a great idea to create one more group, an organisers group, to discuss the party planning.

Prepare the budget
