Hen Party Costs, Savings and Deals

In 2012, the average spend on a hen party was £110. Typically hen parties have between 10 to 20 guests. Now Ocean Finance estimates the average cost of attending a hen do is around £200. Hen party expenditure is climbing so high that is prohibiting a significent percentage of invitees from attending due to affordability issues.

Hen night vs Hen weekend
Deciding on a hen night over a hen weekend is the first decision to save money. At a simple hen night you can get away sharing the cost of entertainment, taxi, club entry and drinks for less than £50 per head. A weekend away with accomodation starts to push £150 + per head especially for sharing a cottage in the countryside or booking city hotels.

If most of your friends live in or around the same city, choosing a convenient hen party venue nearby to celebrate immediately eliminates travel costs and headache.

Winter Hen Weekend
Booking a hen weekend during the low season is a great way to find discounts on accomodation and cut costs. Winter time can offer great savings on country cottages and flights. The other benefit is better quality girl time in a cosy setting in front of a log fire! Winter activities could also be added to the itineray such as ice skating!

Bring your own
Take initiative early with food preparation and bring your favourite items to keep the costs down.

Thinking smart on the trip
Plan when and where you spend money and think smart when you're out and about. Relaxing by the hotel pool instead of booking a private boat ride, or playing party games in the hotel before hitting the bar can end up saving a fortune.

Minor cost items
Cost of food and drinks can be reduced by all bringing your own.

Big cost items
Hotels and flights can be reduced by allowing plenty of time for thorough research.

Package Deals
Don't be afraid to ask for group discounts when booking activities and venues. Many venues welcome group business if they believe you will be staying at the bar all night.
