Growing Popularity in Mobile Hen Parties: Guest Post

The Growing Popularity in Mobile Hen Parties

Today we’re excited to add a guest post to the blog, from Holly Clapshaw who works with our friends at Funktion Events! They’re touching on why mobile hen parties like our wine and fizz tasting have become so popular.

For a while now, brides to be across the UK have chosen a hen party at home instead of splashing the cash and venturing into a big city for their last blowout. One of the main reasons for this is the unbelievable choice of activities on the market, and the high quality of these experiences that makes their hen weekend that little bit more special. As well as the actual activities, the pure convenience of staying at home for the bride herself, and her family and friends is a major factor. Everyone knows where they’re going, will have an easy place to stay if needed and is familiar with the space.

Mobile hen parties aren’t restricted to staying at home however, and this has been proven by the increase of people hiring hen houses and Airbnb spaces to celebrate their hen parties. For example, the amount of groups staying in airbnb’s across the UK was over 13,000 between July 2016 and 2017, making it a hugely popular choice for a last night of freedom. With an 80% increase on that statistic for July 2017 to 2018, you can see for yourselves how many people are loving this option!

When we catch a budding bride searching for a hen do she can enjoy in the comfort of her own home (or other venue), these are the kind of activities a lot of ladies’ pick:

Dance Party

Dance parties have been revolutionised since bringing them to people’s homes, because now you can let your hair down all in the privacy of your own space! Invite the girls around and hold nothing back as your living room becomes a dance studio, with a dance instructor to lead the whole thing. It’s not hard to see why there’s a growing popularity in mobile hen parties when memorable activities like this one are available all over the UK.


Wine Tasting/Fizz Tasting

Every girl loves a bit of fizz on their hen do, and cracking wine tasting classes know just how to spoil a group of excited hens. The best way to taste test a variety of wines and champagne is to be led by an expert, this way you learn as you go and can really master the art of fully tasting the wine and gather the notes. Drinking is always a sociable experience, making it perfect for a hen party icebreaker or end of the day chill out with your bride to be’s favourite ladies.
