Not all hen’s parties are equal because not every bride-to-be likes phallic-shaped straws and balloons, strippers, and all the trappings that come with the typical hen’s party. So before hopping into your luxurious coach hire and go around Sydney, consider the following alternative ideas.
First up, a pampering session
Before heading out to paint the town red, treat the bride (or everyone in the party, if budget permits) to a pampering session so she’ll feel her best and most beautiful for the festivities ahead. Begin the session with a soothing massage, and then follow up with a mani-pedi, hair styling, and of course, makeup.
Next, rooftop hopping
Rooftop bars have been the rage for some time now, so why not hop from one rooftop bar to another? These bars offer magnificent views of the city and come with yummy food and drinks, not to mention decor that you would be proud to flood your social media with.
Cap off the night with some karaoke
Go out with a bang and finish the night with karaoke fun. There’s no shortage of karaoke spots in Sydney, and doing karaoke is the perfect activity for letting loose, especially after all those drinks you’ve had in those rooftop bars.
Or finish with a beachside escape
From Terrigal to Shoalhaven, Margaret River and other neighbouring beachscapes, you have endless options. A beachside retreat is a perfect way to end a hen’s party to make sure that the bride-to-be gets some time to relax before getting hitched. You could even continue the party for a day or two, budget permitting.
Whatever you decide on, make sure that the hen’s party is something that the bride won’t ever forget. And if your bride really must have a dose of strippers on her last night as a single lady, even if you or the other attendees aren’t up for it, don’t forget to squeeze that in your itinerary. After all, it’s the bride’s hen’s party, and what she wants, she should get.
