If you’re reading this article, you’re either a bride to be (congratulations!) or a bridesmaid who is about to watch her bestie walk down the aisle with the person of her dreams. If you or the bride to be wince at the idea of a hens night with a male stripper and a night littered with sexual motifs, then this article is for you. Perhaps you love the idea of a male stripper but unfortunately, it might not be Grandma’s cup of tea or particularly age-appropriate for the bride's 17-year-old niece who wants to be a part of the celebrations. 

 

No matter your circumstances, this article has got you covered and will provide you with a variety of family-friendly hens night ideas which will ensure that everyone has a fantastic night.

 

For the Mental Thrill-Seeking Bride

If the bride-to-be loves mentally stimulating challenges and has a mind for puzzles then having a hens night at an escape room in Melbourne might be just the ticket. An escape room is a place where for 45 minutes to an hour, your hen party needs to work collaboratively to discover clues, solve puzzles and accomplish tasks in order to escape. Another great option is to take your hens party to one of Melbourne’s board game bars or arcades.  

 

The Bride Who Loves To Be Pampered

Sometimes the best thing for a bride before her big day is to pamper her before the big day and what better opportunity for that than to have a Group Spa Day hens party. This will keep the bride feeling fresh, revitalised and ready for her big day. The Mornington Peninsula and Daylesford are two areas in Melbourne that are fantastic for spa retreats. After a morning of pampering and relaxation, the hen party can head to one of Melbourne's high tea venues for something sweet and elegant. 

 

Fashionista Bride

Maybe it's a big dose of retail therapy that the bride is going to appreciate most and love to do with her hens, there are many shopping tours that operate throughout Melbourne. This option will allow the bride to pick up some style bargains so that she is always looking spectacular on her honeymoon, and maybe even purchase something a little more comfortable for her wedding night.  After a full day of shopping your hen party is sure to have worked up an appetite. So, why not continue on in style and attend one of Melbourne's finest restaurants that offer a dégustation menu? This final stop would be perfect for any foodie brides with a love of all things epicurean. 

 

Adrenaline Junkie Bride

If the bride is an active type who loves the outdoors, is a bit sporty and loves a bit of rough and tumble then perhaps a paintballing hen party is going to be the perfect option. The paintballing field might be the perfect place to relieve some of the stress of planning the wedding. Another equally fun option for your party could be to let loose on a go-kart track, Victoria has several fantastic go-karting tracks which can provide a fast-paced thrill.

Most of all, remember to have fun with your planning, there are so many family-friendly options available for hens parties. The most important thing to remember is to tailor the hens party to suit the personality of the bride and the hens who will be a part of the celebration. By following this rule you will have a fantastic time no matter how you decide to celebrate.
