Your essential summer hen weekend checklist

Summer hen weekends are a riot of sunshine-drenched activities, chilled-out nights partying under the stars and recovering over a jug of Pimms before heading back after some memorable bonding with the girls in time for a glorious summer wedding.

Make sure that preparing your hen weekend is just as fun and stress-free as the event itself with this essential summer time hen weekend checklist.

Sit back, grab a cocktail and let Redseven do the rest of the work for you.

Summer hen weekend guest list

Figuring out who to invite to your hen weekend can sometimes be a minefield. Should you invite only your best friends? Will your future sister in law be offended if she doesn’t get the hen party invite? Will you be able to find hen party activities that both your crazy, Sambuca-guzzling friend from uni and your mum will enjoy? A lot of brides solve the problem by organising the guest list into groups, with several activities spread over the weekend so everyone can feel included, and you don’t have to bring your elderly aunt to a nightclub at 3am. The easiest way to do it is to have a day out of wholesome activities, followed by a celebratory hen party meal and the option for guests to join you on a wild hen night out. Hen partying abroad? Book the fuddy duddies into a spa hotel – they’re unlikely to complain about missing out on the crazier activities if they’re relaxing by the pool with a cocktail waiter on hand!

Summer hen weekend location

Having a hen weekend during the summer months means that there aren’t any limits to where you can take the bride for her last weekend of freedom. If you’re staying in the UK head to the seaside or countryside to make the most of the gorgeous weather, or treat the girls to a hotel with a roof terrace for a luxury city break.

If the hen is a beach bum, then the Spanish resorts are ideal for a weekend of alfresco partying and dining and give plenty of opportunities for hen party beach and water-based activities.
