Should you invite older group members to the hen do?

Tricky one to answer, as it comes down to a few factors.

If you have a wide range of ages between family members it might reduce the options of hen party activities you can take part in. For example, would the grandma want to go and try the active bubble mayhen, probably not.

Also, you might have a few personally clashes from younger friends and older aunties. Everyone sees life differently, but you surround yourself with people you know and like. If you bring 15 ladies of different ages together, who don't know each other, then be prepared to for potentially a few conflicts.

The Challenges of Diverse Age Groups on a Hen Do

1. Underage members not able to participate - Planning the perfect hen do can be a little tricky when you have girls of all ages. To make sure everyone has an amazing time, it's important to consider who may not be able join in on adult activities such as cocktail classes and nightlife adventures – after all, some nightclubs will only allow entry for those 21 years or older!

Think about what enjoyable daytime events can keep underage members entertained while your group enjoys evening delights. Be honest with every member from the start so that no one feels left out - promise fun times await each and every guest regardless of age range!

2. Activities that suit the older ladies in the group - Planning the best hen weekend for every age group, including your treasured older ladies? We all know aunts and grannies hold just as much fun potential! Choose activities that everyone can enjoy during the day - like craft classes or an interactive cooking demonstration.

And then when it's time to let loose, you could even organize separate events – so people of different ages get to have their own unique experiences in honour of bride-to-be!

3. Bring the group together - If your hen do attendees span generations, help everyone have a good time by playing some icebreaker hen games. They might seem cheesy but they can be surprisingly effective in getting people to loosen up and open up!

A little laughter will go a long way for breaking down barriers so the whole group enjoys their day together.

So what to do?

You know your group better than others, so speak to them and get a feeling for it.  Remember you don't want any hassle or issues on the weekend, it's all about the bride to be having a fabulous time.

Maybe have two hen parties, one for just friends of similar ages to the bride and another for everyone, so family feel part of it and get to know everyone before the wedding day.
