Hen Do Party

What is a hen do party?

A hen do party is a pre-wedding celebration for the bride-to-be. It is typically hosted by the maid of honour or bridesmaids and attended by close female friends and family members. The purpose of a hen do party is to give the bride-to-be a chance to relax and have fun before her big day. There is often alcohol involved, as well as games and other activities designed to embarrass and entertain the guests. With Canvas we are able to help you host your hen do party in our night club.

Where did the tradition come from?

The history of the hen do party is a bit of a mystery. Some say it originated in ancient Greece, others say it began in medieval England. What we do know is that the tradition has been around for centuries and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

The hen do party is a celebration of a woman’s last night of freedom before she gets married. It is a time for her to let loose and have some fun with her closest friends. The party usually involves lots of food and drink, dancing, and laughing.

If you’re planning on throwing a hen do party for your best friend, make sure to give her a night she’ll always remember and do it with Canvas, this is the best way of ensuring that the bride has the best time of her life before she settles down with the person she loves.

What goes on at a hen do party?

A hen do party is a pre-wedding celebration for the bride-to-be. It is typically attended by the bride’s closest friends and relatives. The party usually takes place a few weeks before the wedding, and often includes fun activities such as games, dancing, and drinking.

One of the most popular hen do activities is playing “Mr & Mrs”, where the bride and groom are asked fun questions about each other. This is a great way to get to know the couple better and to have some laughs. Other common activities include making personalized T-shirts or hats for the bride, decorating the venue, and creating photo collages. All of this is possible at Canvas and we can even get you a private room to go with your party for complete privacy and so you can really let yourself go and have as much fun as you dare to have.

At the end of the night, it is tradition for the bride to be given a special present from her friends.
