1. GET CREATIVE WITH AN ALCOHOL AND ART CLASS

2. IGNITE YOUR INNER BEYONCÉ WITH A DANCE CLASS

Whether it’s shaking your hips like an Egyptian Goddess, moving to the rhythm of a Pacific Island Princess or getting into formation with Beyoncé, you and your gal pals are sure to have a fun hens party at a dance class before the groom puts a ring on it.

Plus, you will look A-MAZ-ING on the dancefloor at the reception in sequence with your choreographed routine. Total flash-mob vibes!

5. CREATE YOUR OWN CEREMONY FLOWER CROWN

Get creative making gorgeous flower crowns with the girls. You not only make a take-home flower crown (perfect for last minute finishing touches for bridesmaid’s outfits!), but also snack on delicious food and beverages.

This is also a chance to get some fun professional snaps of you and your friends looking like boho queens in your crowns. #doitforthegram

6. PERFECT YOUR OWN PERFUME SCENT

Let’s get science-y for a sec. I’m sure you’ve all smelt something before that’s triggered serious nostalgic memories and perhaps didn’t know why. Well, this happens because the Olfactory Bulb, attached to the nasal cavity, connects to the part of your brain handling memory and emotion – sparking these vivid memories.

What better way than to remember your wedding by creating your own scent, complete with a personalised bottle?

7. HIT UP A HENS TREASURE HUNT

It’s fun to release your inner child sometimes—and a hen’s treasure hunt sounds like another great opportunity to do so. With lots of different personalities and interests to suit, a treasure hunt could be just what you’re looking for. Laughter and excitement with some good, cheeky, girly fun! It’s a yes from us!

8. GO GLAMPING WITH THE GALS

For something a little more on the adventurous side, why not a weekend getaway to Lane Cove National Park?

Immerse yourself in nature with kayaking, bushwalking and a wildlife tour, or chill out and relax sipping fine wine and eating delicious food underneath the stars.

9. ROAR AND SNORE AT THE ZOO

This hens party idea is seriously TO-DIE-FOR for any animal lover. Not only are there all too cute animal encounters, night safaris and delicious food, but guests fall asleep under the dazzling city lights of Sydney.

10. HENS PAMPER SESH

It wouldn’t be a hen’s party ideas list without a pamper party suggestion. Just to kick back and relax with your favourite people before the big day sounds very much needed.

Alternatively, you could also make a day of it with another activity, a movie night or hitting the town later on. The possibilities are endless.
