Today we have a guest post, written by Hannah Carrier from listoflife.com! This will go into Hen Party ideas for your bridesmaids to get to know each other!
Hen Parties To Get To Know Each Other
When the bride to be’s most important ladies have been in her life for many years, it is easy to forget that not all of these special ladies know each other. Some might meet each other prior to the hen party, for example, they might meet for the task of helping the bride find her perfect wedding dress. Others will meet each other for the first time at the hen party itself. That’s why it is important to recognise the integral part that hen parties play in the stages of forming the hens’ friendships. We have, within our range of hen parties, activities that allow quality time for talking and getting to know one another, but also some hen parties that cut right to the chase and destroy awkwardness immediately. If you need ideas on how to best help your hens get to know each other, look no further!
Wine tasting is one of the most laid-back hen parties there are since it largely involves sitting around relaxing whilst several small glasses of wine are brought to you to taste. This hen party leaves plenty of room, peace and time for talking, getting to know one another and becoming less shy with each glass of wine tasted! No one is looking for an expert taster, it is a hen party that allows you to trust someone else’s expertly chosen wines from around the world and learn a little bit about each other – and if you learn about wine along the way that can’t be a bad thing!
If there’s one thing we all enjoy, it’s food. Rather than having a simple meal among bridesmaids, a culinary hen event entails choosing a menu and cooking the meal as well. These events have canapes and drinks upon arrival usually to allow you to get settled and designated to cooking stations before the real hands-on fun begins. Pick meals that everybody will enjoy eating and let the chefs assist you in making the meal a success. By the time you sit down to eat the meal you have cooked, you will have already spoken to each other enough that there will be plenty of things to ask about and share about each other while you enjoy the delicious result of your teamwork.
There are a range of hen party dance classes that teach a variety of dance styles. Whether you choose street dance, Bollywood, 20’s or even burlesque, dance classes are a great way to get to know one another because they are fun and involve working together. A typical dance class will do a warm up before teaching you some basic steps so everyone will have to let themselves go a little bit ready to have fun. They typically end with your group performing a set routine which means you will all learn each others’ names and positions and work with each other while you move around. This type of hen party keeps the whole group laughing and is bound to form friendships!
Whatever hen party you choose is right for you, consider the opportunity it gives for bonding the bridesmaids. The more they get to know each other, the more special the wedding day will be with everybody communicating with each other and having fun with their new friends.
