Planning a Hens Night: Dos and Dont’s to Follow

Posted on: October 15, 2020, by :

Hens nights are a time for fun, laughter and a good time for all–but they do take a bit of planning if you want them to go off without a hitch. If you’ll be planning a hens night in the near future, you should definitely consider the following important dos and donts for planning a great night out.

Do: Make sure people eat during or before the event

You don’t want anyone feeling dizzy or lightheaded during the hens night, so make sure that people eat either during the hens night or before it starts. This could mean planning to stop at a restaurant, picking a bar with dinner food, or choosing a show that provides a meal instead of just a show.

If your hens night is on the shorter side and you won’t have time for a full meal, then you have two options: mention on the invites that there won’t be anything to eat and ask everyone to grab a bite before it starts or make sure that there are small snacks available (such as a tray of appetizers).

Don’t: Forget to arrange transportation

If you’ll be drinking during the hens night, you need to arrange for transportation so that no one is drinking and driving. Transportation could include a ride sharing service or a designated driver. Make sure that transportation is arranged beforehand whenever possible so that you don’t end up fumbling around while you’re a few drinks in.

Do: Buy tickets to entertainment shows in advance

Great shows sell out fast! So if you’ll be attending a show, such as a male adult entertainment revue, you’ll need to get the tickets well in advance. If you aren’t 100% sure how many people will be attending the hens night, consider buying a few extra tickets; if not enough spots get filled, you can always sell the tickets secondhand or offer them up for free to friends or family.

Don’t: Stretch the event over too many places

Planning a few different activities during a hens night is a great idea, but you don’t want to stretch a hens night over too many places. For instance, you don’t want to have to go across town several different times throughout the evening. As a general rule, try to keep any major transportation limited to once per night–for instance, from a show venue to a downtown area where you can get some drinks, some food, and go dancing.

Do: Have back-up plans just in case

Always have back up plans for your event! You never know when weather will ruin a plan to walk through an outdoor venue or when a show might get cancelled–or even something small, such as a designated driver not being able to come. Back up plans will help to ensure that you’re not left in the dark.
