As a semi-seasoned bridesmaid, I understand the necessity of furnishing the lovely bride-to-be with a hen party that is tailored to her and the sort of thing she is likely to enjoy. After all, while the standard formula of dressing up with pink sashes and nailing the cocktails can be really good fun, it's not for everyone, and some hens require a more bespoke affair. But if truth be told, it can be tricky coming up with unconventional hen party ideas. It really doesn't have to be though, and you can actually take inspiration from anything that the bride loves, whether it's K-Beauty rituals or a '70s disco.
Of course, one of the biggest problems bridesmaids face when planning is the cost. Hen parties can be a pricey business for all involved, with the average spend per person last year estimated at £153.00, according to party planning experts Go Hen. But have no fear because I've got your back. Yep, every idea listed below comes in at under £100. So if you've been tasked with the grand responsibility of putting together a hen party for a pal who wants a departure from the ordinary, then keep reading as we enter the world of alternative and unconventional hen parties on a budget.
