Budget saving hen do ideas that won’t break the bank!

With wedding costs on the rise, it is more important than ever to be sensible when it comes to planning a hen weekend.  Having a fun and memorable weekend doesn’t have to come with a huge price tag.  Here Fizzbox.com shares their budget saving hen do ideas:

Set up a Hen Do Fund

A great way to budget for a hen weekend is to set up a hen do fund, open or use a separate bank account specifically for the weekend away and ask all members of the party to set up a monthly direct debit.  This will allow costs and spending money to be accounted for and the only thing you need to worry about is having fun!

Rent a house and host a girl’s night in

Renting a hen house for the weekend is a great way to guarantee a fantastic weekend without blowing all of the budget.  Hen houses give you the space and privacy to have an epic girls night in.  Think movies, games, prosecco and lots of laughter!

Group Savings with Set Menus

Most restaurants offer a group set menu, which will allow you to go out for a meal without the stress of trawling through a long menu and splitting the costs of the bill. Fizzbox offers a selection of restaurant deals which offer two courses and drink for as little as £20, saving the hassle, and of course the pennies.

Cocktail Class

If looking for an activity to do for your hen party that isn’t too expensive but will assure that you and the girls have a first class weekend, you can’t go wrong with a cocktail class.  There are a lot of variations of classes to try, with many offering a sharing platter or meal to go with it- saving on the cost of a separate meal out.


For a fun alternative weekend, glamping could be the answer.  For those that wouldn’t normally camp in the great outdoors, there is always the teepee, shepherd hut or cabin option, if a more luxurious approach is more your style. Take along a bbq, drinks, games and music and it will be an affordable weekend to remember.
