Who Should You Invite to Your Hen Party?
Hen Party / February 1st, 2018 11:23 am     A+ | a-



There’s a lot of etiquettes involved with weddings and things can get quite complicated.  Everyone has their own ideas about who should get invited for what and where.  Even the hen party can suffer from etiquette issues.  So who should you invite to your hen party?


The ‘mothers’ question

One of the first considerations for brides or their chief bridesmaid when arranging the hen party is the mothers.  Mother of the bride, mother of the groom, step mums, dad’s partners, all the different options – do you invite them or not?
The answer to this question is twofold – what are they like and what do you plan to do?  Are the mothers quite traditional and don’t drink?  In that case, a fun weekend to Ibiza might not be their scene.  Or are they real party animals who are first into the bar on a holiday?  Then no problem.

The mother in law question can also need a little additional consideration.  For instance, if you plan to have Buff Butlers running your hen party evening, is the mother in law going to be a bit put out by this?  Or will she be waiting at the door to greet the guys?
Thinking about their personalities, their tastes and their feelings are important.  If you want a funky hen party but they are more traditional, why not do two?  Go to Ibiza with the girls then have a meal at a nice restaurant with the older generation.  Everyone is happy that way.


The financial question

Sometimes you have to think a little outside the box when it comes to hen parties and who to ask.  Sure, you want your friends there and to have a brilliant time but can your friend who just had a baby afford a weekend in Ibiza?  And would she want to leave the little one?
What you do and the financial considerations around it is something to think about.  While going abroad or to somewhere like London is a brilliant idea for a hen party, you don’t have to travel far.  If it is more important to have all your friends around, then go for somewhere nearer to home.  lots of cities scattered around the country are hotspots for hen parties so check out guides and choose one that is nearer home.


People not coming to the wedding

Sometimes there are people you want at the hen party but who aren’t invited to the wedding.  Small weddings often leave people out and most people will be understanding.  You can also use the hen party as a way to celebrate with them. 
But if you think they are going to spoil the evening in a huff about not coming to the wedding, then drop them from the hen party life too.  No negativity allowed!


Surprise or not?

One last consideration for the chief bridesmaid if you are arranging the hen party – should it be a surprise or not?  With the guest list, if you know the bride well enough to make the invites without consulting her and not miss anyone, then that’s great.  But otherwise, you might want to chat about the guest list, even if you hold back on what you are doing for the event.

We had 2 Butler's for 15 hens and wow not at all what we expected a million times better. Amazing the both of them we had so much fun and the games we all played were so good. From start to finish such an amazing time would 1000% recommend this company. The lads were great so much fun and sexy as hell especially the tall dark haired guy! Thanks guys ! Were already planning our next party just to have these again. AMAZING!!!

We had a great experience with butler bookings! Mike put everyone at ease straight away and was very friendly. We had such a laugh and everyone said how great it was afterwards! Highly recommend the life drawing class!! Thank you!

Dean was great. He arrived on time and was not phased by the 20 hens to 1 male! He was enthusiastic, got everyone involved in the games and very attentive to the whole group! Would definitely recommend him!

The butlers who attended a Hen Party on Saturday were fabulous! They were very friendly to all at the party and were a great ice breaker! They kept everyone sufficiently topped up and even got the shot games going at 3pm in the afternoon! Would not hesitate to book them again!! xx

Our Butler David in Liverpool was fabulous! He had a great personality and sense of humour and used initiative to get the party really going (tough task at 11am on a Sunday after 2 heavy nights in Liverpool. He was up for everything we wanted to do and entered into it all with such energy and enthusiasm. He also judged the group amazingly well knowing the exact level of cheekiness to entertain and draw a few gasps from the group. David was definitely the highlight of the hen weekend in Liverpool and can’t be recommended enough. John was also fab in organising the booking quick to respond, great communication and made the whole thing easy to organise.

What a night! Excellent service from start to finish. Stephen & Griv arrived on time, to the excitement of 35 ladies who attended my 50th birthday party. They danced, took drink orders, served drinks, posed for photos and we enjoyed partying with them for 2 hours. Everyone said it was a brilliant night! Thanks Guys!😘

we had Zac and Emil, Emil was fantastic very engaging and polite and paid attention to all the room, however Zac was only really interested in one girl, I felt he was very unprofessional and even opted to go out with some of the girls after he had finished

Emily

Andy was great - really made the evening. Judged us a a group perfectly so pitched everything well. Came with lots of idea for games which was great as we didn't have to prepare stuff and could just let him get on with it! Booking process also very easy and worked well. All together very happy, thanks!
