Low Cost Hen Party Ideas

You’re so close to marrying the love of your life, but you want to celebrate with your girls before you do, and what better way than having a hen party! As money may be tight after paying for your big day, here’s a few low cost ideas!

DIY Spa Day

Host a DIY spa day at home or at a friend’s house. Set up stations for facials, manicures, pedicures, and hair treatments. Prepare homemade face masks, scrubs, and nail polish. You can also play relaxing music and provide cucumber-infused water for a refreshing touch.

Outdoor Picnic

Organise a lovely outdoor picnic in a park or garden. Pack a basket with delicious snacks, sandwiches, fruits, and beverages. Decorate the area with colorful blankets, cushions, and flowers. You can also incorporate fun games like charades or truth-or-dare.

Craft and Cocktails

Arrange a craft session where you and your friends can create personalised items such as jewellry, keychains, or decorative items. Look for affordable craft supplies or repurpose materials you already have. Serve cocktails or mocktails as you let your creativity flow.

Movie Night In

Plan a cozy movie night at home. Choose a selection of your favourite movies or chick flicks and create a comfortable viewing area with blankets, pillows, and dimmed lighting. Prepare popcorn, snacks, and drinks for a relaxed and enjoyable evening.

Scavenger Hunt

Organise a scavenger hunt in your local area or even in your own home. Create a list of fun and challenging tasks or items for your friends to find. You can incorporate personal memories and inside jokes to make it extra special. The only cost would be printing out the lists or purchasing small prizes for the winners.

Outdoor Adventure

If you enjoy outdoor activities, plan a day of hiking, biking, or a visit to a nearby beach or nature reserve. Explore the outdoors, have a picnic, and enjoy each other’s company amidst beautiful scenery. It’s a low-cost way to have fun and create lasting memories.

Dance Party

Transform your living room into a dance floor and have a dance party with your friends. Create a playlist of your favorite songs or hire a low-cost DJ if your budget allows. You can even learn some simple dance routines from online tutorials and have a blast.

Cooking Class

Organise a cooking class at home or invite a friend who is a good cook to share their skills. Choose a specific type of cuisine or a particular dish to prepare together. It’s a fun and interactive way to learn something new while enjoying delicious food.

Karaoke Night

Sing your hearts out with a karaoke night. Set up a karaoke machine or use a smartphone app with a microphone. You can take turns singing your favorite songs and have a laugh with your friends. It’s a low-cost activity that guarantees lots of entertainment.

Outdoor Games

Plan an afternoon of outdoor games and activities. Set up stations for games like sack races, egg and spoon races, tug-of-war, or a friendly game of soccer or frisbee. Bring along snacks and drinks to keep everyone energized and hydrated.

Remember, the focus of a hen party is to celebrate with your closest friends and have a great time together. With these low-cost ideas, you can create a memorable and enjoyable hen party without breaking the bank.
