Hen Celebrations

Hen Do Venues Tunbridge Wells, Kent

‘The last day of freedom’, ‘The last party as a Miss’; however you look at it, hundreds of women will be celebrating their friend becoming a bride with a hen party, weekend or night out. But where did it all start?

It’s believed that the tradition of a hen party goes back further in the UK than in the US, where the trend escalated in the 1970s and 80s following the 1960s sexual revolution. In the 1970s women were made to look like a bride in their workplace, whilst colleagues celebrated the marriage to-be. Notes with sexual innuendos were tied onto the bride’s coat before she was flaunted around the local pub; something very untoward in those days! It was expected that women would leave their jobs when they got married, therefore on the last day of work the bride-to-be would be made the centre of attention and a celebration would take place based on the bride-to-be’s ending of work life and the beginning of home life and motherhood.

Since then, the ‘hen party’ has continued to gain popularity in line with the rise of gender equality and sexual freedom. Nowadays, parties range from a cheap night out to trips abroad, and everything in between!

These days the maid of honour, the chief bridesmaid, the best friend is the one with the responsibility! As we are all aware, the hen do is now becoming as important as the wedding. Therefore it is paramount that you throw your bride the best hen do – and what better place than the sleek One Warwick Park?
