Hens Night – The Last Night of Freedom

Hens Night – The Last Night of Freedom

It’s finally here, you’re tying the knot soon! From a young lady, you’re about to have a party you will never forget before the wedding. Well that’s what we hope your bridesmaids have planned. We have a few ideas for you, but make sure you have a great night, because it’s the last night of freedom! That’s right, you can hear the wedding bells just around the corner so get ready for a massive bender!

But hold your horses there. Sure, you’re about to get married, but not quite just yet. How about celebrating with a massive party for your last night of freedom? I’m talking about a full blown, chaotic but fun hens night with a bunch of your gal pals! Girls nights out are always super fun and end up being the stories we tell when we are old. You know the boys are out having their stag, so get ready to go one better.

What’s a Hens Night?

Hens night, also known as a bachelorette party, is a girls-only get together to let loose and be a single lady for one last time. It’s that one night prior to your wedding day when you get to release all your inhibitions with your best friends and have a great time. Your bridesmaids are there, and you can also invite some of your closest peers in the party.

Still not getting the picture? Instead of saying what happens during a hens night, it might be better to give you an example. Have you watched the films “Rough Night” and “Bachelorette?” While those take on an overblown take on hens nights, they pretty much give you the idea.

If that sounds a bit wild for you, then you can opt for a tamed down bridal shower instead. Although, there are those that have both, so why not, right?

How to Have a Great Hens Night

While a common theme for hens nights in the past was a debauchery-filled evening with strippers and wild games, modern takes on the said party is slowly veering away from that. Now it’s all about plain fun, and that means no humiliating the bride-to-be with activities you wouldn’t be comfortable with.

So what are the things that you can do? Here are a few ideas that you can absolutely try.

Create Your Own Booze

One thing that makes anyone unguarded is a shot of sambucca or two. Now it would be boring just to pick a brand and be done with it, right? So why not be all creative with your gals and set up a cute bar, have a few juices, berries, and other alcoholic beverages that you can mix and match? Pair that with a great chat and you’re having fun!

Build a Life Size Frame

We all want to take a piece of the moment when we were still single ladies and partying, so why not make it last with a photo? But we don’t want to settle for just any picture. Have a huge frame that you and your friends hold while posing in front of the camera! Even Instagram filters can’t beat that!

Try Bra Pong

Beer pong is so yesterday. Have you heard about bra bong? Just hoist colorful ones on a board with corresponding points and you’re sure to have a unique but inexpensive activity with your gals.

Belt Your Heart Out

We can’t all be like Beyonce or Christina, but who doesn’t like singing? Time to put your karaoke skills to the test and just be silly with your friends. Be the queen that you are for that night!

Satisfy Your Need for Speed

Who says you can’t be pretty and athletic? You might want to visit a nearby GoKart racetrack and burn some rubber! It’s an exhilarating activity to do, not to mention all the screaming and hollering can do you good.

There are plenty of things you can do, but one thing’s for sure – it’s just the start of even more fun!

How to Make a Movie Night Super Awesome

Everybody loves watching movies. But do you know what’s even better than that? Watching with family or close friends at home! Nothing beats a movie night while you stay comfy in your own house, and the experience is tailor-made for everyone. Today, we’ll give you tips how to make a movie night super awesome.

Pick a Theme

If you plan on throwing a movie night with friends, plan a theme. Don’t just go around, saying, “I’m hosting movie night at my house, do you want to come?” Instead, be more specific like, “Tonight is about ‘Star Wars,’ we’re going to have a ball! Costumes or fancy dress are optional but encouraged!” That makes movie night more interesting.

Innovate the Menu

Thinking of just serving the usual popcorn during movie night? That’s so dated and bland. You might want to look into going in synch with the movie you’re going to watch. Viewing “Huntsman: Winter’s War?” Maybe ice cream would work? Think somewhere along those lines.

Create Comfy Seating

You’re going to be watching films for over two to three hours, so you have to make sure everyone’s comfortable. Chairs are a thing of the past; you might want to consider bean bags or a comfy lounge with a pouffe instead. That makes everyone comfier while being laid back as you watch as many films as you like.

Play Some Games

We’re not talking about games that could distract you from the movie. Instead, it should be games that actually make you even more focused on it. For example, if you’re all of drinking age, you could set a rule where everyone chugs one drink when a character says a specific word, or does a gesture that you’re watching out for. That adds up to the experience. You could also have a trivia game in between movies, to test everybody’s knowledge.

 

Let Your Guests Vote

 

While you’re hosting the movie night, it may be difficult for you to decide what’s best for everyone. You can ask your guests to suggest a film they like. Ultimately, it will be your decision, but at least this gives you an idea of the genre your audience likes.

Print Movie Tickets

What screams “movie night” better than movie tickets? It creates an atmosphere that an event is coming, and it serves as an invitation for your guests. It also serves as a token of a wonderful memory you will be making!

Be Creative with the Location

You don’t have to watch a movie in the living room all the time. How about moving the venue to the back yard or a shed or garage if you’re watching a horror film? You can decorate the area with cobwebs, scythes, and other cool stuff that depicts the theme!

Do Away with Phones

You don’t have to be strict about implementing this, but have an agreement with everyone that phones should be off-limits during the film. This way, everyone is concentrated on the film and the experience.

And these are some of the tips to make a movie night super awesome! Are there any other ideas you have in mind?
