Who’s going to be making the decisions? One voice is easier than many.
Too many cooks will spoil the broth. This is very true for Hens night Sydney, I would argue the number one problem hens nights have is too many bridesmaids all contributing to the hens.
Now don’t get me wrong here, asking for advice from the bridesmaids is always a good idea, but it should be made clear that one person (you) are organising the hens night itself (or at least having the final say on what to actually do).
When I’m communicating with a maid of honour or the chosen bridesmaid and I am discussing hens night package options, it always become a huge headache when the information has to get passed around to 5 different people to grant approval. Often this back and forward motion takes up valuable time and effort for both the maid of honour the bridesmaids AND the business involved.
What I would suggest is this, nominate a specific person to handle all decision making processes, but have people to assist you with decisions. That way when push comes to shove and people are being indecisive about what they want (always happens), you get the final say – because let’s be honest, who would know what the hen wants more than you?! You can’t always please everybody!
Another big hens night issue is budgeting for the night, it’s a sensitive topic and while you or your hens closest friends might be prepared to pull out $400 for this night – others may be less inclined to spend more than $50. Overall you should always be splitting the costs up evenly across the ladies, unless you have some other quid pro quo arrangement!
When considering budget I would always take into consideration the costs associated with the wedding itself, how much will the ladies be paying towards organizing dresses – transport – make up and all the other costs associated with the wedding itself? If these costs are already high i.e. international or interstate travel, hotel bookings etc. then consider that when booking your $400 day spa massage treatment.
Ideal spend for ladies on the services themselves would be between $100-150pp, normally this can cover all your alcohol, food costs, male entertainment costs and sometimes even accommodation costs. Hens Nights are typically fairly pricey when all costs are added up. However, We have some fantastic Hens night packages Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Perth and Adelaide that cover all these things at affordable prices which makes hens organisation fun and easy.
