Hag or Sten Do: Hot Party Trend This 2014

2014 hen partiesTowards the end of 2013, a trend has already started with hag or sten dos on the rise. That is probably because of Riri and Chris Brown’s joint celebration which was quite controversial as they cruised around Corsica, Monaco, and the south of France. The whole affair lasted for much longer than the usual celebrations. Prior to Riri and Chris’ hag do, other celebrities also had joint hen and stag party celebrations like Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson.

Having a joint celebration like this comes with a lot of benefits too. So, there really is no need to follow tradition when the pros might outweigh the cons.

Friends Get Together

For many folks, celebrating that last night of freedom means getting a chance to spend time with some close friends they rarely see. Combining that stag and hen party means close friends of both parties get to celebrate their last night of freedom together. It is a great opportunity for their closest friends to get to know each other in case they don’t.

If they happen to be common friends, such a celebration is a good way for all of them to spend quality time together and have fun before the big day. This holds true for the celebrants as well.

Save Time

Save time planning and booking for two separate parties. So much time needs to be spent with other wedding preparations as is and having to make time for two other celebrations.

Save Money

Just by having a bigger group than the usual hen party or stag party, everyone can save some money. Group bookings come with discounts from hotels, recreation centers, and bars. Sharing the cost of drinks and food makes each meal more affordable as well.

For transportation or travel, renting a small coach or minibus might be more affordable than bringing several smaller cars to gas up. The group gets to save some money from that too.

Trust Issues

Trust issues will not even be in question with a joint celebration like this. According to a survey, 74% of men lie about their stag party activities while 43% of women will lie about it to their partners. Lying will be taken out of the equation as the couple will be celebrating their last night of freedom together.

Since it will be a joint celebration, does that mean that women or men won’t get to do what they want? Well, not really, the men can still enjoy paintballing during the day as the women enjoy a day at the salon or spa. When the evening comes, they can all party together at a particular bar or club. If the groups wishes to, they can even go pub crawling with their mini bus or small coach.

With those benefits mentioned above, hag or sten parties are here to stay this year as more couples see the benefits of having a joint celebration. Those that wish to have a more traditional celebration should still go for what they want. After all, celebrating that last night of freedom is still about the bride-to-be and groom-to-be having the time of their life before tying the knot their way.

Planning your Hen Parties

Planning a hen party can be an arduous and frustrating task; especially if you include it in the wedding set-up as a whole! It needn’t be though with some basic planning and list-making (who doesn’t love making lists?). Follow our basic planning guide and make sure you have the right party for you – and all with minimal fuss and stress! Nothing is set in concrete here, but if you consider these basic points then you will soon be on your way!


The duration is an interesting point and really the first thing you should consider. Are you thinking about just a standard night out? Or possibly an activity in the day followed by some sort of evening event. Maybe you want to push the boat out a bit and go away for the weekend with your hens, and if so, are you going to stay in the country, or even go abroad?

What you really need to take into account is the budget – both yours and those of all attending (assuming everyone would pay for themselves). You also need to think about the boring things like getting time off work and passports etc. Once you have an idea of this you can make an informed decision and then start planning where you go…


Once you figure out what kind of hen party you are going to plan you can decide where it takes place. If this is a hen weekend/holiday affair then that means researching various destinations and packages to find something that speaks to you. If you are staying in blighty you want to start thinking about what places appeal to you and where can you really let your hair down. Remember, it’s all about location, location, location; wherever that location may be.


This is definitely one of the most important decisions you will want to make regarding your hen parties and nights. At the end of the day, it doesn’t necessarily matter where you have your party, as long as you have fun while you are there. This means looking at what makes a good party and what is going to make your nights memorable.

You first might want to decide if you are having a theme of some kind, and this means fancy dress. Though it is not for everyone, you cannot deny that when people really get together and make an effort the hilarity of it all makes it worthwhile. Pick something that reflects the bride-to-be, her tastes, and her personality as a whole – don’t be afraid to think outside the box and come up with something new.

Whether you have decided to dress up or not some games and activities certainly help make it a proper hen party so take a look around for some. We also suggest getting some novelties in the form of hen party accessories involved. These will not only help assist you with your themes but will increase the frivolity and give your guests little mementos that they will recall for years to come.

The main thing you can do when planning your hen parties is relax a little bit, it’s meant to be fun remember! Just make sure your hen party says something about you and people will, inevitably, love it.
