It is the tradition to have a hens party some time before the marriage ceremony. Officially, this is the last time the bride is able to party with her best friends before she gets married. This isn’t necessarily a tradition in Greece.
However, many Greeks have adopted the custom within the past decade or so. Since there is no set “Greek tradition” concerning the bachelorette party, it may be fun to have one with a Greek theme.

Now comes the trickiest part of for the hens party – choosing the venue and/or theme. With the bride’s wishes uppermost in your mind, brainstorm ideas with two or three close friends. Too many can lead to decision by committee, too few and you may not consider all the best options. On this website there are suggestions for your hens party so please check these out and run them by your friends. It’s important to have an idea of the numbers likely to attend coupled with the likely cost for the party.
If the hen feels a little guilty that the expense of the night or weekend may be too high for some of her friends then part of your job is to persuade her to forget about the costs. So long as her friends have a rough idea of how much the party is likely to set them back then it’s up to them to make their own decision about whether they attend or not.
We are all about making your hen’s night an unforgettable experience. With weekend hens party packages and celebration ideas from the boisterous to the most sophisticated, every bride will have the time of her life with Hen’s activities and games to suit every taste.
