#HenHotlist | Ladies Who Hen
For many of us the arrival of spring signals the start of the hen party season: cue invites, outfit selection and jet set locations.
For those of you responsible for planning such occasions, who better to ask for help than the team behind Ladies who Hen, a luxury and bespoke hen party planning brand for the most sophisticated ladies.
Hi Ladies who Hen, you’re known for your chic escapes, tell us more about what you offer and what makes you unique.
Our ultimate aim is to make Hen Party planning completely stress free for our clients! Our specialists work with each client individually and build bespoke and completely tailored itineraries based on their needs, requests and budgets.
Not only do we plan the trip, but we also book absolutely everything and collect money ahead of time via different payment plans so groups can avoid painful bill splitting during the event.
Our clients typically fall into 2 brackets - they either know exactly what they want to do, but want a hassle free experience with Ladies Who Hen organising the trip for them, or they are not sure where to start and need inspiration and our guidance on their Hen Party planning journey.
Either way, we pride ourselves in our ability to put together the most perfect plans for each client with our expert knowledge of the different Hen Party locations that we offer including the UK, Barcelona, Ibiza, Dubai, Marrakech, Saint-Tropez and more!
What makes a fabulous and unforgettable hen party?
The most loved and memorable Hen Parties are those that have the perfect balance of organised fun and free time! Booking and paying for as much as possible ahead of time prevents any awkward conversations about 'what to do next' or 'who owes what' meaning that all memories are about how incredible the Hen Party has been! Always make sure you are planning the Hen Party around the Bride's loves and incorporate her favourite activities (even if it’s white water rafting), because if she is having a fabulous time, then everyone else will too!
On the art of being a good hen party host, what are your top tips?
We would always recommend aligning on a budget as a first port of call, as this will ensure everyone is on the same wavelength early on which makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease that nothing further will pop up as a cost.
Although it may sound controversial - sometimes less is more, and we would suggest avoiding asking the opinion of the entire group on every decision you make. We all know the saying 'too many cooks spoil the broth...' and it’s often better to present the plan to the party once finalised, and everyone should be delighted with what you have organised! Otherwise, let Ladies Who Hen organise the Hen Party for a guaranteed stress free experience.
Can you let us know the most covetable destinations and hen party trends for 2020......"
We are seeing more and more Hen party groups going further afield in search for guaranteed sunshine! Dubai and Marrakech are increasingly popular destinations with much smaller Bridal parties going away together and then coming back to the UK to have a much bigger Hen Party with extended friends and family.
Marrakech is incredible for the more cultured group, with day trips to the mountains, camel rides, henna parties and traditional Hammam spa treatments, whereas Dubai is perfect for those groups who love to be wined and dined with endless pool parties, top restaurants, roof top bars and boat trips! Trends we are seeing in 2020 include JOMO with groups opting for complete relaxation and pamper time, as well as groups opting for completely unique activities that no one has tried before to ensure that the Hen Party stands out from others!
