As the temperature lowers, the evenings draw in, and rainy days become more frequent, it’s safe to say that summer has officially ended. However, that doesn’t mean that the Hen Parties must stop. As more brides opt for winter weddings, hen groups are also being forced to embrace the season too.
While many consider summer the ideal time to host a hen party, here at Butlers with Bums, we believe a winter Hen Party can be just as special.
Aside from low season prices, which means you’ll have more money to spend (or save), winter is also the ideal time to break out your faux fur and sequin gowns and have a truly glamorous Hen Party!
And if you’re worried about torrential downpours or snowfall, don’t be; there are lots of exciting Hen Party activities that can be enjoyed regardless of the adverse winter weather, especially since staying in is the new going out, and there are numerous activities that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home or accommodation. So why not rent a cosy cottage, close the door on the winter extremes, and plan some amazing indoor hen party fun?
Listed below are our top Hen Party activities for the winter season that can be carried out from the comfort of your hen house, accommodation, or own home.
When it’s dark and gloomy outside, nothing beats snuggling down with a bottle of wine and some tasty nibbles to watch your favourite film. Therefore a movie night is the perfect activity for a winter Hen Party, as it’s not only inexpensive and lots of fun, but also appropriate for guests of all ages.
Designate one room as a screening room and decorate it with fairy lights, several blankets, pillows, and a table filled with goodies, including finger foods such as sandwiches and crisps, as well as sweets. In terms of the film, the bride should have the final say, however, having a selection of classic films should help with the decision. Chick Flicks like Bridesmaids, Clueless and The Notebook are all great options, and if the party includes younger guests then you could choose some Disney classics or age-appropriate films. Christmas movies and holiday classics, however, are also fantastic choices for the season; our favourites are The Holiday and Love Actually!
Hen Party Life Drawing Class
For a truly unique mobile hen party activity this winter, why not hire a gorgeous model to come to your accommodation for a life drawing class? After all, it wouldn’t be a Hen Party without a naked man! Imagine getting cosy around the fireplace with your bestest friends, sipping bubbly and drawing a beautiful nude model. We couldn’t think of anything more perfect!
A hen weekend should be as stress-free as possible, which is why hiring a private chef to prepare a special meal for you and your girlfriends is the perfect solution to your dinner dilemmas. While you sit back and relax with a glass of champagne, our professional chefs will take over your kitchen and prepare, cook, and serve your menu of choice. The best part is that there is no need to worry about washing up because it is all included in the service. Furthermore, there will be no billing disputes at the end of the meal. For an extra touch of spice, you could even hire a buff butler or two to help serve the food and drinks.
Hen Party Cocktail Masterclass
Rather than leaving your house or accommodation in the dark, cold, and rain to go to a bar this winter, why not bring the bar to you? A Cocktail Masterclass is a terrific way to shake up your Hen Party if you enjoy socialising with friends and family while sipping tasty cocktails. Learn how to make your favourite drinks with your own cheeky and charming mixologist who will walk you through the process of crafting the perfect cocktail. Some delicious drinks with a side of eye candy? YES PLEASE!
Mobile Spa Day
For a more relaxing Hen Party activity this winter, why not book a mobile Spa Day? After all, the bride-to-be deserves some serious pampering and relaxation in the run-up to the big day, but why go to a spa when you can experience pure bliss and tranquillity in the privacy of your own home? With this experience, you and your girlfriends can unwind in the comfort of your accommodation while enjoying delicious drinks and tasty food. For a truly unforgettable experience, why not also hire a handsome butler to serve champagne to you and your girlfriends as you all sit back and relax?
