Financial Tips to Organise Hen party

Before you get carried away with L plates, Live art drawing and butlers in the buff, you’ve got to get a whole lot of logistics, numbers and money together while working to a deadline.
A hen weekend staycatation is probably the easiest to organise in Brighton with a hen party accommodation . The best thing to remember is the whole point of a hen weekend is for the bride’s girlfriends to gather round her before the most important day of her life. The point isn’t to pressure those girlfriends into a 3 day no expenses spared extravaganza.
Arrange to talk with the key people – closest friends, the hen herself and the girl who is deemed the most fun. Decide how much money you’re likely to have and how to make it stretch into the most fun possible. This will determine which locations will give you the best value for money.

To get a good idea of the budget, calculate the cost of the hen party accommodation you are renting and divide it by the number of Hens attending, then add in the per person price for the activities plus an estimated amount for your groceries and drinks.
So no one has to food shop or carry bags - book your groceries and drinks to be delivered to the house just as you arrive. Budget an amount for taxis, eating and drinking out and everything should be covered.
As a per person guide, between £115-£280 for 2 nights’ accommodation, £95 for activities, £50 groceries, then a kitty of £150 (to cover taxis and drinks out).
Estimated maximum total of between £400-£600 per person, depending on whether you book a large hen party accommodation or a smaller one.

Hotel, B&B or Private House?

One of the most important things is where you stay! A cheap B&B down the back streets, larger chain of soulless hotel where you will be mixing with other hens and stags (Yuck) and more than likely in small cramped rooms on different floors! Just will not do!
When you book your own private property, you can have breakfast at your leisure, share the whole house without interruptions and spend that all important time together in that large hen party accommodation in Brighton . In the long run it will save you money and time trying to find somewhere to sit for breakfast, moving tables to accommodate your group – even an afternoon coffee or a bite to eat can be a challenge in a small B&B!
Make sure you book a property that offers you the space and privacy you need. You need light and space, space to sit and chat with a coffee, space to eat, room for your activities, a place to party and dance if you want too! Definitely need lots of bedrooms, you don’t want to share beds, definitely no bunk beds! Lots of bathrooms, plug sockets for hairdryers and curling tongues! Soft towels and clean white cotton sheets (don’t worry about the self-tan!) plus plenty of mirrors!

Try and book one of those hen night apartments in Brighton as early as possible as lots of the best places can go a year in advance. Try and secure a private residence close too but not in the centre of a great city but within a short taxi ride to the night life. You don’t really want to be in the middle of nowhere paying out all your money on cabs. Send out emails to your potential hen crew and put strict deadlines for responses. Then book with your definite numbers. It’s a lot easier to add a few to your group than wait and try to book for a big group later.
Remember the earlier you book a hen night apartment the better your choices.
Its estimated that once the accommodation is booked you have between 4 and 6 months to sort out a great hen weekend. However, remember- most good properties get booked up quick! So, book yours early!
