Hen Weekend – Home vs Abroad

It’s tricky enough trying to choose a destination in the UK, let alone a destination abroad so that’s why it’s important to think carefully about your decision to make sure that it’s right for you. Hen weekend organisers Redseven have over 14 years experience to help you make the right choice!

You’ll need to take into account what your budget is, as well as determine what the rest of your group’s budget is, and you’ll need to think about what your priorities are. Is it most important to you that every single friend can attend? Or are you desperate to get abroad for a weekend whether everyone can make it or not?

The important thing to remember is that what you want is the priority.

You don’t need to escape overseas to discover something new. The UK has a lot to offer so a hen party is the perfect opportunity to experience a totally new city with your favourite ladies.

Staying in the UK is a good all rounder, as most people will be able to afford it and work it into their life more easily. If your friends have children they’re more likely to be able to come and people who can’t get much time off work will also be more likely to be able to take one day off rather than more days off for an overseas weekend.

With a UK hen party, there’s no need to arrange all the elements involved when going abroad such as flights and further, you save the money you would have spent on hen weekend ideas such as cocktail making or an even bigger night out!

Another advantage of staying in the UK is the fact that you won’t have to deal with any language barriers or issues with the cuisine, which not everyone will enjoy.

Top Tip – Go for a city you haven’t visited before so it feels like you’re getting away, to make it a truly memorable weekend.

Abroad

hen-weekend-abroadChoosing to go abroad for your hen weekend will inevitably cost more as you have to take into account the cost of flights, however, if you choose carefully you can still enjoy the benefits of sun, sea and sand for a similar budget. With Redseven’s flight-inclusive packages, not only is your whole weekend organised for you taking the stress away, you can even pay the weekend off in installments, making it more affordable and realistic for everyone.

After all, what better excuse is there to go away on a mini holiday with your best friends other than for the special occasion of your hen weekend? By choosing a beach break, you and the girls can top up the tans before the wedding. Nothing beats chilling out on the beach, soaking up the sun’s rays while catching up with your friends. Plus, by choosing to simply relax on the beach, you’ll be saving money you may otherwise have spent it on activities.

If your idea of the perfect weekend away doesn’t involve so much downtime, you could go for a city break abroad. It’s a great chance to explore a new city, sample local cuisine and enjoy a bit of culture.

Whether you choose the beach or the city, the combination of a mini-break and a hen party couldn’t work better!

Top Tip – Make sure you book a weekend early so you can make sure you get the best deal and make the most of the installment plan.
