July 03rd. 2014

This post is long overdue as it was sometime ago now that we came across the gorgeous website that is The Hen Planner is the perfect solution for those planning a hen party who are looking to plan a stylish and alternative hen from what we have now come to know. We had a chat with the lovely Claire from The Hen Planner. Here is what she had to say:-

The Hen Planner initially started as a blog and has grown into a resource website for hen party planners who want to add both style and a personal touch to their hen party. is the stylish go to site for hen party ideas and all your hen party planning in Ireland and the UK. It’s for the ladies who want to break away from the traditional hen party mould and think outside the box when it comes to their friend or sisters big send off. As well as providing pages of stylish and personalised inspiration, we have a carefully curated directory which consolidates businesses in the hen party market across the UK and Ireland.  This enables hen party planners to contact businesses directly and plan a DIY hen party. We also cater for those who want a personalised hen party planning service and have tailored some amazing parties with our industry partners.

We recently opened a new hen party accessory boutique which sells non traditional hen party accessories and decorations for the ladies who want something more sophisticated.

We might not like the tack of traditional hen parties but we do love a party and having fun with good friends. When it comes to planning a hen party, it’s the little things that make it special for the bride to be, so focus on the personal touch. Don’t be afraid to break tradition and let your imagination run wild! A bunch of girl friends together will always have a great time. And remember, style doesn’t have to be expensive.

Our tips and approach to a planning a super stylish hen party:

1. Trade the shot glass for a champagne glass. We do love our bubbles. We also love tea cups.
2. Ditch the willy straws for stripy paper straws. Stripy straws and drinking out of jars just make everyone happy.
3. Dress the bride in a pretty sash from The Hen Planner Boutique. No stylish lady should succumb to tack.
4. Avoid the traditional and popular hen haunts. Especially those with buckaroos and bad Prosecco.
5. Should you choose to have a theme, don’t try to find Wally or put on a pink cowboy hat. Vintage and retro themes are timeless.
6. Completely avoid the traditional hen party accessories and decorations.

We love hearing about real hen parties so if you’d like to share your experience with us, please drop us a message via our website.

    Really nice article, the hen planner always have great suggestions. Another great suggestion is a creative bespoke hen party in the lovely town of Clonakilty, west Cork. Handcrafted Hens ( offer interactive sessions in truffle making, fabric and paper flower crafts, clutch purse making (and more) which could be just what you’re looking for your classy hen party.
