The Best Hen Party Locations
Hen parties are very popular, especially in Europe. Women who are getting married usually plan these events to celebrate the transition from singlehood to married life. A Bride-to-be usually leaves the planning of her hen party up to the maid-of-honor. However, the maid-of-honor may delegate responsibilities out to the rest of the wedding party, or she may even hire a service to help plan the perfect pre-wedding celebration. Often a hen party will include traditionally feminine activities such as a pajama party, or playing get-to-know-you games. Other traditionally feminine activities may include planning a visit to a health and beauty spa for a makeover or other beauty treatment, or a massage.
Not all hen parties are typical feminine parties though. In fact, many hen parties include the same activities that a stag party (bachelor party) would consist of. Hen parties take place in quite a few European cities, and some of those cities include the following:
