Ultimate Guide to Organising A Hens Party: Who To Invite?hunksadmin
Knowing who to invite to a hens party can definitely be a dilemma. You want everyone to enjoy themselves and have a good time. You don’t want anyone to ruin the fun night, but sometimes you don’t know until they get there. This is often one of the first things to think about when it comes to planning a hens night, and the invite list can be a challenging one. You have your drinks organised, your entertainment planned, and you even know how you’re going to treat your guests, but who will be the guests? You know your bridesmaids are coming, of course, and maybe a few other close girlfriends… but who else?
This is often the biggest decision of the invite list. Do you invite your mum? It’s a big occasion and symbolises a big move in your life, but she’s your mum! She can’t see you hanging around penis-shaped lollies and taking shots! But maybe she can?
This will depend on your relationship with your mum, but remember, it’s a big night, she already known you’re an adult, you’re allowed to do these things remember! Give your mum a chance and invite her I say, or make a compromise, she can come to pre-drinks, but maybe not the stripper show!
They have grown up with you your whole life, seen every embarrassing childhood moment, and often experienced it with you, of course invite them! You may need to make special accommodations for underage siblings, or maybe those a little bit older, but it will definitely be worth it. You want your sisters by your side, I promise!
This can be tricky, how far out do you go? Does every female cousin come? What about aunties? Nieces? This is going to be a personal decision for everyone. We recommend sitting down with your sisters, or even your mum and being careful. You don’t want to offend anyone, but at the same time, it’s your night! Invite the people you want, and people who are going to have a fun time.
The Groom’s sister?
This is the very first stage of becoming family, after the wedding she will be your sister too! We always recommend inviting the groom’s sister, or close female cousins, even a female best friend. The gesture will mean so much to them, and the groom. This will show them that they are part of the family now.
You’re with them all the time, but often not having fun. Sure, sometimes you have a few work drinks, but that is completely different to the excitement of a hens night. It can be hard to tell if a work friend is going to show her fun side, or be a grouch all night. Maybe have a conversation before the invites go out about your rough plans. Does she seem excited? Is she already ruining the mood? Sometimes a courtesy invite even when you know she won’t come can help. Sometimes they can surprise you, and give you a lot to talk about next Monday morning!
Childhood best friend?
You may not have seen her in a little while since moving, or getting a job. You may not know 100% if she is still with that one guy she was dating, if she is still loving her work, how her parents are. But why not invite her? Your childhood best friend and you had heaps of fun at one stage, and normally it is easier than you think to recreate that joy. In an already happy environment I’m sure you can spark conversation again, and it will mean the world to them. Remember when you planned your weddings together when your were eight?
A Helpful Hunk?
Ummm… Yes Please!!! This is one invite you can not forget to send out. What will you hens night be without a Helpful Hunk by your side? Serving drinks, participating in games, and even cleaning up. A Helpful Hunk is the #1 party guest, don’t leave him off the list!
