One of a Kind Hens Party Ideas for Auckland Brides

By Maria Yeonhee Ji

It can be easy to stick to the standard script of how you’re supposed to throw a hen’s party. But making yours a one-of-a-kind event that actually caters to your interests and personality will always end up in a more memorable night (and one that your friends will actually enjoy). Opting to steer clear of the cliches doesn’t have to be hard, either - here are five of our favourite unique hen’s party ideas for an event that’s easy to organise yet will bring a twist to the table. 

1/ GLAMPING WITH THE GIRLS

If you’re an adventurous soul and want a getaway with your friends, glamping is a great option that will give you that immersion in the beautiful outdoors while keeping even your homebody mates happy. Once you’ve picked the venue, you’ll have the flexibility to put in as little or as much into the schedule as you desire. Maybe you want to bask in the sunlight and savour the freedom of having nothing to do but relax, or maybe you want to spend the day taking part in some wilder outdoor activities. Either way, glamping gives you the best combination of the outdoors and indoors (and a comfortable bed to snuggle into at the end of the day). One great spot for glamping in Auckland is at Castaways Resort - which also happens to function as a popular beachside wedding venue. 

2/ COOKING CLASS

Classiness and a great hen’s party don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Cooking classes, for example, can be a really sophisticated way to add some tricks to your culinary repertoire (and you get to enjoy the meal at the end of the class). If you’re not afraid to introduce some friendly competition to increase the excitement, you could opt for a cooking challenge in the Master Chef style to get people more invested in the process. 

3/ POLE DANCING CLASS

If you’re looking for something that’ll help bring out the sexier sides of your squad, you should definitely consider a group pole dancing class! Don’t be concerned about not having enough core strength - for this kind of group a flow class will be ideal. A beginners flow class focuses on easy moves incorporated into a simple yet striking dance routine using the pole - this means everyone will be able to take part and look amazing, irrespective of their physical strength. 

4/ KARAOKE

When it comes to karaoke, unless you come from dancing backgrounds it’s unlikely your troupe will resemble Donna and The Dynamos on stage. But you’ll absolutely have as fantastic a time. A night with your nearest and dearest spent singing your favourite hits will inevitably bring together nostalgia, celebration, and the sheer hilarity that comes with embarrassing yourselves a little (or a lot) in public. If you and your friends are on the shyer side, book a private room at a karaoke bar instead so that you can get equally wild without the audience full of strangers. 

5/ COCKTAIL MASTERCLASS

Instead of doing the typical hen’s party activity of going out to get cocktails, why not learn how to make them yourselves (as well as drinking them of course)? Bellini, for example, runs fun cocktail classes where experienced professionals share their tips and tricks on how to make the perfect drink, then give you the chance to experiment and make your own. Whether your drink of choice is a mojito, cosmopolitan, moscow mule … by the end of the session, you’ll be mistresses of mixology (not to mention thoroughly refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the night).
