Hen Do organisation advice
Organising a Hen Do can initially seem like a daunting task so here at Lets Golf we have written this guide to ensure a hen party with all of the fun and none of the drama.
Firstly where do you start?
Well, you can’t plan the hen party until you know when the wedding day is! So make sure that you know when exactly the big day is to schedule the party anywhere from a week to a few weeks before she says ‘I do’. You’ll need to plan the whole thing about 3 to 4 months ahead of that to get the venue and everything booked and ready to go. So the next thing would be to find out how many and which of the girls will be there so you can open up group discussion about where to go and what to do for your favorite lady’s last big event as a ‘single lady’.
Availability and budget for the stag do
Unfortunately, in the adult world all your friends probably don’t have the same schedules and budgets so you have to make sure that is a main focus in your group discussion. The best way to do that is find out what date and budget the majority can go for and then set a minimum cost that will include travel, stay, food, acivities, and nightlife. A good tip would be to make sure that there’s enough advanced warning that even those that may find the whole thing a bit pricy can save up and be a part of a brilliant hen party for their best girl.
Where to stay?
If you want to stay in a hotel you should think about staying within the vicinity of the places you want to go. You should also make sure that the hotel you want to stay at does indeed take hen parties because not all hotels do. Luckily Lets Golf is right by the Gatwick airport and about 3 minutes away from London and Brighton by direct train from Horley station. Once you’ve agreed on the accommodations, book right away and as soon as you can!
Contact the Ladies
So by now you’ve talked budget, schedule, what you want to do, and where to stay. The next step would be calling in or going online to reserve absolutely everything because you don’t want to wait until the last minute only to find out that what you were hoping for is actually no longer available. Set a deadline for all the ladies to RSVP, hound them if you have to, and get to booking all your activities, dinners, accommodations, anything that requires booking or is likely to have loads of business at that time. At Lets Golf booking is as easy is just clicking a button on our website, and sharing the reservation with the girls so each person can pay to join the reservation or calling in to our center and having the other guests call in to pay and confirm.
It's all about the stag!
Remember this is the last big shebang your girl gets to go to with all her lady friends before she’s officially someone’s ‘Mrs’ so it’s really important that she enjoy herself. The most important thing for any hen would be to be able to have a good time with her girls. Make sure the activities are so fun nobody wants to miss out and cost effective enough that no one has to. Go on and have the best hen do/ bachelorette party in London!
