Who to invite to a Hens party

We discuss how to create and maintain a communication channel with the guests and make the perfect hens party for your B2B? And which personalities to expect.

Who to invite to a Hens Party

The first thing you will need is a guest list

The bride can help you with that if it’s not a surprise. But what if you’re making a surprise party? Who are you going to invite? How can you have all these contacts and make them participate and help you to organise it?

Think about your bride. What friend groups she is in? Does she have a good relationship with her siblings or cousins? Does she usually go out with people from work? Would she like to have her mother and future mother-in-law at the party? After asking yourself these questions, jump to her social media and get these contacts. Don’t forget to reach out to the groom as he may have some tips for you.

Reach out to all the possible guests with the basic information and ask them to give you an answer if they’re coming. As soon as you have an idea of who is coming to the party, create a communication channel. Facebook groups are good for that and give all the information through that. This way, you don’t need to pass the same content many times, and you can ask for opinions and help in case you need it. We’ve created a guest list with the essential information you will need to have from the guests. 

On the other hand, some of the most important information your guests will need to know is dates, budget and what to wear. You can also give them some ideas of what to expect like what the weather will be like, which type of party is it (boat party!!!!) and the games you are planning to play. Make sure they know what to expect, let surprise to the bride-to-be!!

This group is the most important people for your bride and they probably would love to help you too. Don’t get overwhelmed with everything you need to do. Give a to-do list to the group and check if someone would like to help with anything. You never know if the bride’s friend from work is a natural decorator or knows the perfect DJ. Take something away from your plate. It’s definitely a good idea, and you can end up with a new best friend. There is a reason why your bride has these friends, and the hen’s party planning is the perfect opportunity to understand why and get even closer.

Now let’s get to the fun facts! Do you know what your bridesmaid type is? There is a list of the most common types of them, and we’re sure you will find each of the maids in that.

1. The doter

This one is the one who knows you more and has been waiting for your wedding ever since you were kids. She will want to see  every detail and will be happy to help with every decision.

2. The panickier

She definitely won’t work well under pressure! Faffing over the smallest details, this bridesmaid will send you into a frenzy before the arrangements are even underway.

3. The chiller

Always late to every dress fitting, the chiller will calm and terrify you. She has no sense of urgency and is happy to go with the flow (probably at a very slow pace!).

4. The organiser 

This friend will help you to organise everything, taking over all the bridesmaid duties. Allow her to build the hen-do plans, and (hopefully) she will let you take care of the rest.

5. The drunk

It might take one glass of champagne, and they’re ready to party all night. She can be the funniest but also the one that causes you most trouble. Remember to feed her, even before the party starts. 

6. The gusher

This gentle friend will give you every you deserve. She holds you in high regard that she has nothing but praise – and occasional expressions of love – for you.

7. The one that can-do-no-wrong

Here comes the teacher’s pet. Practically perfect in every way, she will keep you smiling – and sane – throughout the entire process.

8. The opinionated one

Especially when it comes to the bridesmaid dresses, this friend will want it her way. She won’t be afraid to tell you exactly what she thinks and her expressions will speak volumes.

9. The non-opinionated one

Quiet and shy, this one will try to hide even when her opinion is asked for. She doesn’t want to upset anyone and would much rather make you happy, so approach with caution.

10. The blubber

This bridesmaid just cannot hold back her tears of joy. Seeing you in your wedding dress for the very first time, walking down the island or even tasting some sweets can bring her to tears. Be sure to have some tissues to hand.
