How to Personalise a Hen Do ~ By Wedding in a Teacup

Have you been given the task of planning the Hen do? Here are some ideas on how to throw the perfect hen party filled with personal and unique touches.

With hen party season in full swing Hester Lear owner of online gift and décor boutique Wedding in a Teacup shares her top tips to ensure you throw your bride to-be the perfect and most personal hen do.

Over to Hester (founder of Wedding in a Teacup) to tell you more…

“Once you’ve agreed a time and a place for the action, get everyone excited with a snail mail invitation – there are times when a text or email just won’t cut it! Send a badge invitation personalised with the date of the do, each guest’s name (good for larger parties where everyone doesn’t know each other) or simply HEN – then everyone can wear them on the day – a great ice breaker! Or is the bride to be more eco-minded? Pop our sunflower seed packets in A6 envelopes for a lovely introduction to a country weekend away.

If you’re staying away for the night, make sure a few of you get there before the bride to be to set the scene and decorate! A lovely idea is to get everyone to bring their favorite (or funniest) photos of her and peg them up around the room. Scatter bright confetti on the tables, pop fun paper straws and retro charms in the drinks and string bunting and colourful pom-poms from the walls. Top it all off with a ‘hen party in process’ sign to make sure you’re not disturbed!

Gifts for all the girls are a really thoughtful touch, and can be practical too. Fill hen do survival kit pouches with goodies to keep everyone in tiptop condition; sweets, plasters, paracetamol, mini bottles of booze and detox face masks – they’ll thank you for it later! Arrange the pouches on each hen’s bed before everyone arrives for extra wow factor.

Don’t forget the bride to be – this is (hopefully) the only hen do she’ll have – so ensure she’s spoilt rotten! Our ‘bride to be’ tote bags are larger than the pouches so you can cram more goodies in them – a lovely keepsake, and great sash alternative for the more fashion conscious!  Fill with gifts that she can use on the day and keep for her BIG day. Pop in a pocket mirror personalised with her name and the date, top it all off with a handmade bride to be necklace that she can wear with style and pride the whole weekend.

Finally, for the ultimate take-home gift for your bride to be, create a hen-do guest book for her.  We love the idea of filling a photograph album with all the chicks’ childhood photos and memories of her  – add to it throughout the day and gift it to her at the end, leaving a few blank pages for her to add in the fun of the hen do!  Or bring along a ‘fill me in’ poster and some colourful pens so everyone can write their message and memories on it throughout the weekend – it makes a wonderful keepsake.”
