Types of Short Notice Hen Parties


One Night Hen Celebration

We all enjoy getting away for the weekend, but due to commitments and the short notice, many of the hens might not be able to make the whole weekend. That’s why a one night hen do is perfect for the last minute party planners. It’s the ideal plan as it involves half the packing and half the planning, with the same amount of fun.


  • Second night of the hen party is usually devoted to hangovers, especially for those who aren’t used to partying.
  • One nighters will cut the cost for those hens that are on a strict budget.
  • Less Planning.

The Surprise Hen Party

This truly thoughtful idea can be pulled off more easily when having limited time. It’s always super stressful when trying to succeed in pulling off a surprise hen party. However, if you have less time, you’ll have less time to worry about someone leaking your plans to the bride to be.

Top Tips

  • Ensure the bride to be is free on the preferred date and get her mum/ sister to pack her bags.
  • Organise activities that she will like and enjoy.
  • Tell as little people as possible, to make sure that nothing gets out to the bride.
