7 Classy Hen Activities for Hen Do's
1. Girls Night
If you are having a get-together to celebrate the bride-to-be’s final nights of freedom, then a girl’s night would make the perfect choice. And there are so many different things you can do with a girl’s night.
Go all out with a sleepover, choose a movie and wear matching pyjamas. Or just have everyone round for some drinks and a catch-up to celebrate. A great idea could be doing a cocktail competition where everyone has to create their own cocktails.
2. Life Drawing
A life drawing class for hen parties gives you a chance to get creative and enjoy something a little cheeky whilst still keeping it classy. You will start by meeting your model and instructor who will be hosting the event.
Then, you can get your pens, pencils and paper and sit down, ready to get creative. The model will get into a number of different poses, and you will be able to draw each one with tips and feedback from the instructor of the event.
3. Hire a Bartender
If you are keeping your hen party at home, then why not try hiring a cocktail bartender experience? This way, you can decorate your own house or rented accommodation and enjoy having your drinks shaken up for you by your own private bartender.
It’s an experience that everyone will love and will be a great addition to keeping your evening classy, sophisticated, and memorable. It’s also perfect if you don’t want the stress of creating your own drinks.
4. Trip to the Spa
A hen party is all about taking time out for the bride-to-be to de-stress and think about anything but the wedding planning. This is why a spa pamper hen party would be ideal.
You can all sit back, relax, enjoy a treatment or two and have a well-deserved break from the real world. A spa trip will suit everyone too as there are so many different things that you can do whilst you’re there so to ensure that nobody feels left out.

5. Cocktail Making
With a cocktail class hen party, you will be able to shake, mix, and stir your own cocktail creations. Take the chance to experience what it’s like to work behind the bar with a professional mixologist and learn what it takes to create some delicious drinks.
All of the ingredients, glasses, garnishes, and tools you need will be included on the day. All you need to do is turn up and enjoy the experience with all your favourite ladies.
6. Dance Class
Keep it classy and learn a new skill by taking part in a fantastic dance class! We specialise in dance classes and have some fantastic dance themes available that will suit all different groups.
Something like this is perfect for a classy hen party as it is fun and energetic, but still, you know you are keeping it classy because you can choose your theme accordingly. And it’s a great choice if your bride-to-be is an avid dancer or likes strutting her moves on the dance floor.
7. Create Your Own Perfume
Enjoy being classy, sophisticated, and creative and create your own scent with a perfume making hen party. This can be done in your own home or rented accommodation, as the host will come to you with all the necessary equipment.
You will learn all about how perfume is created from the base notes right the way to the top notes. And once you’ve learnt what you need to know, you can then choose all the notes you like and put them together for your own signature fragrance.
Classy Decorations & Accessories
Hats & Headwear
Even a classy hen party could do with some headwear! Maybe a simple veil or flower crown for the bride to be. Take a look at websites like Team Bride for some ideas.
If you want more of a subtle accessory, then some hen party badges are perfect! It’s a little something to show you are all part of the same group but nothing major that will make you stand out during the weekend if that’s what you would prefer.
Celebrating the bride-to-be with a veil is a perfect touch for the weekend. There are a lot of different styles, so look for a classy one like this veil on Etsy.
Hen Do Props
Classy hen party or not, hen do props are a must! There is something for everyone, whether you are after some photobooth props or some selfie frames.
Sashes at a hen party show who the bride-to-be and the rest of the group are. There are various sashes to suit a variety of themes and groups.
Glasses & Drinkware
