Planning A Hen Party On A Budget

Planning a hen party on a budget can be a tricky affair. Between accommodation, food, drinks, travel, outfits and decorations, the cost can really start sky-rocketing if you’re not careful. At Henit, we pride ourselves on being able to cater to every kind of hen with any sort of budget. If you’re trying to watch your spending, if some of the guests aren’t able to afford something extravagant, or even if the hen simply doesn’t want a big fancy affair, then Henit are the organisers for you! Below, we’ve compiled a list of cost-saving qualities that our company provides.

1. Fully Customisable Packages
Our hen-party packages are completely interchangeable and customisable. You can pick and choose from our wide range of options and settle on the accommodation and activities that best suit your budget. We pride ourselves on providing an experience that is both entertaining and excellent value. If you and your group decide after booking that the package is too expensive or doesn’t suit everyone, don’t worry! All aspects of our packages can be changed up even after you’ve booked, and there’s no penalisation costs for swapping either. It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, after all 😉 For more, check out a full list of our hen-party packages in Ireland.

2. Accommodation and Activity Options
We know that when planning a hen party on a budget, often it can be difficult to decide where to cut corners. Henit offer a large range of different accommodation options, with prices to suit every budget plan. From affordable hostels to top hotels, our organisers will work with you to help you decide which choice is right for you. We can base this on budget, location and whatever other factors are important to your group. The list of activities we provide is lengthy and also has something to suit every kind of hen party budget, from the most fuss-free females to the big spenders. Location-wise, you can pick accommodation within the area of your chosen activity or the town you’ll be partying in that night. This will take pressure off your party with regards to travel expenses, and leave you with more bucks in your back pocket to have a good time with.

3. Night Out Options
When you book with Henit, no matter what package you choose, guest-list entry to a nightclub and (depending on the club) a round of complimentary shots will be available for your party upon arrival. This spares the often too-expensive cost of paying your entire group into a club, which can be pricey depending on the nightclub and the amount of people in your posse. The complimentary shots are a nice little bonus, too – just make sure they’re part of your nightclub entry before arrival to avoid any awkward confrontation! We also offer Henit/Stagit wristbands, entitling the wearers to promotional drinks for the entirety of the party in a range of pubs and bars.

4. Food and Catering
When planning a hen party on a budget, it can be quite tempting to say “screw it” and skip booking the party in for food, opting instead to let each lady feed themselves. But wait! Food is another completely customisable part of our packages at Henit. Depending on what you’re willing to spend, our options include discounted pub grub and 2 or 3-course meals in a restaurant or in your hotel. If eating out isn’t part of your plan, you can book into self-catering accommodation; it’s all entirely up to you, and if you should change your mind before the big event, our staff will be more than happy to help you decide on a different place for you and your hungry hen party to chow down. Bonus!: When you book with us, complimentary finger food will be on offer in the pub or bar of your choice, meaning you won’t have to fork out for a feed every few hours. Bon appetit on a budget!

5. One or Two-Night Packages
Our packages can be planned over the course of either one or two nights, so if you’d like to plan an action-packed party for your hen but are worried about the cost of an entire weekend, you can narrow it down to one night. Our packages are all completely customisable and you can pick the length of your hen party to suit your price range. We’re here to provide you with the best bang for your buck, on a budget or otherwise! If you’ve chosen to book for two nights but some of your ladies aren’t keen on the idea, individual attendees who may not be able to afford the entire weekend can decide to stay and pay for just the one night; that way everyone is happy and nobody gets left out. Planning a hen party on a budget has never been so stress-free!

6. Payment System
At Henit, all of our bookings are payed for through a handy online-payment system. Each party member is responsible for their own payment, so the organiser doesn’t have the unenviable task of chasing up every individual guest for money. This will also remove the hassle of sorting out the separate payments of party members who won’t be attending for two nights, meaning less time spent by you poring over numbers and more time getting organised for the big event. And, because everyone is responsible for their own payments, it takes a lot of the responsibility off the shoulders of the organiser. It also eliminates the potential of any awkward conversations or (god forbid!) arguments over unpaid fees or missing money.

7. Time-Frame for Payment
When it comes to planning a hen party on a budget, preparation is key and it’s best to begin organising everything in advance. If you decide to book with Henit, you have from the day you booked with us until three weeks prior to the party to make your payment. This feature is perfect for any parties counting their pennies, because if the booking is made well in advance, all guests will have an ample amount of time to get their money together and make their payments. Best start filling up those piggy banks, girls! 

8. Final Numbers for Your Party
Did you book a hen weekend away for twenty-five fine females, only for some of them to drop out prior to the event? Not to worry! When you book with Henit, you have until three weeks before the event to tell us your final numbers. For example, if you make a booking for 25 attendees and come back to tell us the number is now 21, as long as it’s before the three-week mark we will rectify the booking and at no extra cost to the rest of the party. This means the price won’t change for any of the remaining guests, no matter what, so anyone planning a hen party on a budget needn’t worry about potential drop-outs. Just be sure to get in touch and let us know before the party!

So, now that you’ve seen what we have to offer you, you can go ahead and book with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
