Organising your hen do beside the seaside

The hen do – an age old tradition where the ‘soon to be wed’ makes the most of her final days of freedom before entering into the sanctity of marriage…Or something along those lines!

Whichever way you look at it, a hen do is a great way to get together and celebrate pending nuptials with friends and loved ones.

So what makes the perfect hen do? Is it the location, the theme, the people who’ll be there and how many you’ll invite, what you’ll eat and drink, or what happens during the event itself?

If you’re the one organising your friend’s hen do, you’ll doubtless be asking yourself questions like these and many others, such as, will there be pampering involved, or will there simply be lots of calamitous booze induced fun and frolics?

The list of things to plan for and do on a hen ‘do’ is endless. And these days hen and stag dos aren’t just about L plates, an oiled up stripper and a few cocktails down the local nightclub.

Hen dos have got so popular that they’re now becoming whole weekends away and of course, when you’re looking for a holiday, the seaside is always a great place to start!

So, before we begin, we must point out that we have the Holy Grail of hen dos and stag dos right on our doorstep with our very own Butlins, Bognor Regis. Everyone knows that.

Here there are endless awesome fun weekends away to be had with the girls, from a raucous, star studded, dance weekend of classics from the 70s, 80s, 90s or 00s, to a seaside break with some added extras such as fairground rides and a water park.

But hen dos in Bognor Regis don’t start and end with Butlins.

What we love about having a hen do in Bognor Regis, or any other event for that matter, is that there’s something for absolutely anyone and everyone here in our little corner of West Sussex, no matter their age or taste.

So, to start with the planning, where will you stay?

You could check out Airbnb and book a beautiful house on the beach to make your home for the few days that you’re here. There are some gorgeous properties available to suit pretty much any party size.

Or, why not push the whole boat out and book a spa retreat at somewhere stunning such as Bailiffscourt?

Then, of course, there are all the many superb seafront hotels that Bognor Regis is so famous for.

Once you’ve made the base for your hen do in Bognor Regis, why not dig out your bucket and spade and enjoy the beach?

Perhaps try some water sports, or maybe make the most of the sunniest town in Britain and party on with a glass of wine in hand while you watch the world go by.

In the evening, there’s a whole host of bars and restaurants to enjoy, with more super smart places popping up by the minute, so if a bar crawl’s on the cards, well, this particular venture offers endless opportunity.

Ultimately, the one thing to remember is that the secret to the perfect hen do lies in ensuring that you give the bride to be a night to remember for all the right reasons and a great place to start is by discovering what she’s into.

Once you’ve done that, find a great place to be for your hen do and, call us biased, but we believe that Bognor Regis has it all.
