Hen nights are something everyone in the bridal party looks forward to! With so much of time and stress involved with planning a wedding, it’s nice to take a night off to enjoy each other’s company while celebrating the bride’s last single days.
While some prefer a quieter, intimate gathering; others may enjoy a loud and fun night on the town with plenty of dancing and alcohol. Once you’ve finalised the hens night theme and event flow, you can start working on choosing and sending out the hens night invitations. There are so many different themes and types to choose from, but a hot trend right now is using insignia on your hen night invitations.
Insignia can be used for your hen night invitations easily; it can include a logo, graphic, design, or icon. You can pick one that best represents the bride to be, the night out on the town or her favourite sport team or movie. Monograms are another popular insignia to put on invites – they’re classy, elegant and everyone loves the personal touch it gives an invitation.
Hen Night Alternatives
Your bride to be may not want a typical wild night out on the town and that’s okay! You can pick a fun activity that’s relaxing like a pampering day at the spa, painting class night, a relaxing beach weekend or even catching her favourite theatre production followed by dinner at an elegant restaurant.
A night in is always enjoyable as well with plenty of games, food, gifts and her favourite music. A movie premiere night is also a great idea as well, without all the partying—check out the newest flicks while wearing formal wear!
When to Mail
You’ll want to mail out your invitations 3-4 weeks before the hen night to give guests enough time to make plans to attend, especially if there’s a lot of out of towners .
If choosing to print hen night invitations with your own pictures, it’s important to allow extra time for choosing and including the pictures in the invitation design.

Assign someone to do the hen night invitations and each task so that it can be done in time and affordably. Happy planning!
