10 Classy Alternatives For Hen’s Night

The hen’s night is a wonderful tradition, one that is meant to celebrate the final days of a bride’s single life.

Today however, it seems that tradition has strayed to become one of a semi-dangerous nature, encouraging women to get smashed, touched and potentially drugged.

We’ve all been there.

After a much anticipated wait for a girlfriend’s hen’s party invitation to arrive, we open it and our shoulders slump as we read”¦another bloody night aboard a sleazy stripper boat, drinking copious amounts of fluro-coloured drinks with penis straws hanging out of every orifice of the bride’s body.

The need for other, more adult-inspired options is becoming more and more sought after as many brides are wanting to get classy rather than ass-ey.

Here’s some great ideas for a wonderful hen’s day or night that is sure to bring all the girls together in a bubble of fun, rather than a pool of rum.

1. High Tea

Cupcakes, cucumber sandwiches and an abundance of flavoured tea, nothing says lovely quite like a traditional high tea. It doesn’t have to be boring, get the girls to dress up in their finest Sunday dresses and enjoy the company and the treats.

5. Wine Tour

A Wine Tour is the perfect excuse to get away for the weekend with the girls. Places like the Hunter Valley offer group rates and not only entice you with a couple of glasses of red, but many include visits to local cheese makers and the odd candy shop or two.

7. Day at the Races

The races can sometimes be treated as a bit of an opportunity to drink heaps and bet away your week’s pay, but when done a bit ‘classier’ the races is an absolutely fabulous day out and a great reason to frock up. Most racecourses have a VIP section that includes food and bevvies and a little punt here or there never hurt anyone, right?

8. Baking Sesh

Cooking classes of any kind are sure to separate the chefs from the sheilas but throw cupcakes in the mix, and no one cares what they look like, so long as they get to eat them! A really sweet and fun way to spend time with your besties and the best part, you eat what you create.

Towns and cities around Australia have a lot of history and along with history, comes tales of the ‘other’ kind so hold hands and get ready to scream with delight.

10. The Ultimate Sleep Over

Get cosy and spend the night in drinking champagne and indulging in a game of charades. The internet is rife with party games and a dress up theme adds a little bit more fun. Get all of the girls to bring a plate of their fave party food and stay up late telling stories and sharing memories.
