Best Bridal Hens Party and Bachelorette Party Games

Planning a Hens Party that’s anything but boring!

Planning a hens party can be a stressful business. Finding something within budget that will please hens and bride alike is not always easy, keeping everyone busy and entertained all day (and still making it to the evening’s festivities in one piece).

From the sophisticated to outrageous I’d recommend keeping it simple, but by adding a twist to traditional hen activities you’re sure to find something that has everyone enjoying themselves.

High-class high tea

A High Tea is a perfect hens activity. Take tea and cake to the next level and research the most sophisticated hotels and tearooms in your area for the best high tea. Finger sandwiches, cakes and scones, accompanied by a glass or two of fizz in a suitably luxurious setting is the perfect way to bring your hens together for a little indulgent fun. Orbit 360 at Auckland’s Sky Tower has to be a top contender here, as are Grand Windsor’s new high tea, or the recently rebranded Cordis (formerly Langham).

Weekend away

If you want to go all out, plan a luxurious weekend away from home. Whether you opt for a glamorous city hotel or an escape to a scenic location, make sure the itinerary includes dancing, cocktails, party games, and brunch. A weekend away provides the perfect opportunity to create unforgettable memories with the bride-to-be and the entire girl gang.

Ski Weekend Away

Winter brides, or or those who love the snow, a ski weekend is an excellent choice. New Zealand is spoiled for choice: in the South, Queenstown is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and crystal clear lakes while offering first class accommodation and scenery. In the North, just 4 hours from Auckland, Mt Ruapehu offers two playgrounds, Whakapapa and Turoa, as well as plenty of other exciting activities. Dressed in the cutest snow-bunny outfits, or rocking garish 80’s get-up from your local op-shop, hit the slopes for skiing and hot chocolates on the mountain by day, and sip on cocktails or mulled wine at night.

Up for a splurge? You could even take the girls in a helicopter ride to see the sights from above (and take instagram pics that’ll be the envy of every other bride-to-be)! A trip to Queenstown is incomplete without that Onsen Hot Pools shot, so submerge yourself in the hot springs spa to warm up. At the end of all of your action-packed days, sit by the fire roasting marshmallows, and recalling your best (and most embarrassing) memories with the girls. This plan will surely de-stress the bride and get her ready for the big day.

Concert or Festival

Take the bride and her friends to a music festival or a concert featuring the bride’s favorite artist. It’s a great way to get into the celebratory spirit and make lasting memories. Consider booking a hotel for the night to continue the party after the event.

Road Trip

Just like when you were teenagers – blast the music, wind down the windows, let your hair down and just enjoy being together and the journey. Plan exciting activities at the destination, such as swimming, bonfires, picnics, and more. Take the bride on a trip down memory lane by visiting places significant to her past. This could even be turned into a “guess what the bride did here” game as you travel back in time to relive the best of times with the girls, and share a couple laughs along the way.

Health Retreat

Starting the morning with yoga, healthy food made for you and ending the day with cooking classes and massages. Health conscious brides will love to be pampered with a relaxing retreat. Crave Fitness is a wellness weekend held in Taupo that focuses on de-stressing and keeping fit while motivating and challenging everyone. Great food, amazing accommodation and personal training and yoga suited to your guests are just some of the options.

Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting

Wherever you are in New Zealand, you’re never too far from great vineyards and views – not to mention wine. Whether taking the ferry (or the chopper) across to Waiheke Island, or road-tripping around Kumeu, Marlborough, Otago, or Hawkes Bay to name a few, lunch and wine-tasting is the perfect way to begin a classy bachelorette day out. Closest to Auckland, we’re heading to Villa Maria to do just that soon! Learn how the wine process works, or just taste them all while taking advantage of the beautiful landscapes.
