From getting engaged up until your wedding, the road to your special day is full of exciting moments - and your hens party should be one of them.
But if the thought of penis straws and strippers makes you shudder - not to worry. We've got you covered with classy hens party ideas and games that you and your friends will actually enjoy.
There are so many options for you and your bevvy of babes to choose from when it comes to celebrating your hens party in Sydney. For the creative types a paint and drink session is one of them.
Cork & Chroma in Surry Hills and St. Leonards allows you to BYO your wine of choice, whilst an an artist leads you through the painting session with step-by-step instructions.
If a view of Sydney's stunning harbour is what you want, check out Hacienda Sydney in Circular Quay. Soak up the stunning decor inspired by the luxe Miami hotels of the '50s as you sip on one (or two, or three) of their delectable cocktails. Many Instagram-worthy pics will be taken here.
We all know that Melbourne is a foodies paradise, nothing new there. So if you and your bridal party can take a weekend off your pre-wedding shredding, it's a must-visit. There's so many great spots to check out, but you can't go pass breakfast at Top Paddock, lunch at Chin Chin (to skip the nighttime cues) and dinner at Mr. Miyagi.
And of course you can't celebrate your hens night in Melbourne without having drinks on any one of the city's rooftop bars.
For those who want a taste of the great outdoors but want to do it in a classy way, glamping is a fab idea. Less than two hours drive from Brisbane you'll find Nightfall Camp, one of the state's most exclusive glamping spots.
Wake up the sounds of nature, head to the waterfall for a swim and indulge in a massage in the wilderness.
With only six adults staying at Nightfall at any one time, it's best for a small hens group who want the ultimate in relaxation before the wedding.
Instead of finding a unique perfume for your wedding day, why not create one yourself? Clean State in Fremantle offers scent blending and perfume workshops using essential oils.
TIP: Only wear your wedding day perfume when celebrating your anniversary to take you back to the moment you said 'I do' to your one and only.
A hens party in Adelaide is not complete without a trip to the Barossa Valley, because who doesn't want to go wine tasting with their friends in one of the best wine-regions in the world?
This is when the hangover kit (below) could come in handy.
Having just undergone stunning renovations, The Star is a fab pick for a hens weekend on the Gold Coast. Kick of the celebrations with cocktails by the pool before grabbing a bite to eat on the Garden Kitchen & Bar's sun-drenched deck.
Since you are celebrating your hens party in the Gold Coast, it would be wrong not to let your hair down. If you're in the mood for drinks and dancing into the night, check out Nineteen at the Star's private booths with VIP bottle service.
Want to chase the sun and head north but go somewhere a little more relaxing than the Gold Coast? Byron Bay is the perfect spot to do so, with lots of luxurious accomodation options for you to choose from.
Elements of Byron is just one option, where you can start the day by watching the sunrise with complimentary beachfront yoga before driving into town for boutique shopping.
Head back to the resort to take full advantage of the adults only pool and swim-up bar where you and your crew can celebrate your upcoming nuptials into the night.
At home - games and activities
If you're going to celebrate your hens night at home, games are a fun way to bond with your girl squad before the big day.
Here's a few to try out:
A classier twist on beer bong, Prosecco Pong is available to buy at the The Iconic for $29.95 and comes with a set of twelve cups and ping pong balls. Choose your playing partner wisely!
How well does everyone know bride? Think of approx. 10 to 15 questions about the bride and print them out for all the guests to answer in a certain timeframe. Once time is up, the bride should go through the answers and see who knows her best. A prize (a bottle of wine?) could be given to the winner.
Here's an example:
Toilet paper dresses
An oldie but a goodie. How it works is that your friends and family seperate into small groups with one person from each being chosen as the model or 'bride'. Everyone then creates a dress from the toilet paper on their model before the fashion show where the dresses are shown off and the best one chosen as the winner.
Play this one after a few games of prosecco pong and we're sure there will be a few interesting designs amongst the mix!
If you're celebrating your hens party with a weekend getaway or overnight stay, matching silk pyjamas are a sweet gift idea to say thanks to your friends for celebrating with you. You can even get them personalised to make them unique.
For the party-goers, a hangover survival kit is a must. Fill a box or bag with everything you'll need to survive a night of dancing and drinking.
