But don’t panic, here are four things you need to do so that it will be a perfect day for the bride.
It might seem obvious but the bride to be will need to have guests at her hen do! It’s best to sit her down and get her to write a list of the people she will want there.

If the mother in law to be, and the bride's mother are going to be invited, it might be worth checking with the bride how active they are. Also check if they are offended by more raunchy activities.

Every bride is different, some may want a quieter hen do while others might fancy a night out on the town. Think about your friend carefully, and try and incorporate some of her favourite things in the hen do. Check out your local area and see if there are any special events that are happening which the hens may enjoy. Also, look at activities that will be fun for all ages. And if you are thinking of going further afield, you might want to go on sites which organise the activities for you.

You could incorporate a limo or even a party bus as part of the hen do plans. It’s also worth looking at accommodation for your guests.
