An idyl­lic set-up in Taranaki is the per­fect lo­ca­tion for a hen’s party brain­storm

“Hen’s par­ties can end up get­ting quite ex­pen­sive or stress­ful for the brides­maids. The great thing is that most hen’s party dates are or­gan­ised well in ad­vance, so en­cour­ag­ing those at­tend­ing to de­posit a small weekly au­to­matic pay­ment into an ac­count will make it feel more af­ford­able for those at­tend­ing. Plus, it takes the stress off the or­gan­is­ers hav­ing to fol­low up with pay­ments or even worse, last minute pull- outs.” @laws_149

“The best hen’s par­ties are when every­one has a re­ally good time, es­pe­cially the bride – her mood sets the whole tone for the party. My best mem­ory would be go­ing on my friend’s hen’s party in Taupo and go­ing on Sail Bar­bary. We all dressed to a nau­ti­cal theme, cranked some great mu­sic, ate, and drank wine on the sail boats. It was such good fun. My num­ber one tip would be to talk to the bride.” @live­ly_ and_co

“To be hon­est, I have never planned a hen’s party but I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to my own next year. My favourite mem­ory from a hen’s party I’ve been to was my friend wear­ing a pe­nis cos­tume all night – a to­tal high­light!” @make­up­byan­nalee
