Trying to plan a hen party in winter can be tricky, but don’t worry; our friends at Redstar Fancy Dress have kindly put together a comprehensive list of the best winter hen party destinations, from blissful breaks for brides on a budget to extravagant excursions for ladies who love to flash the cash.
Amsterdam has an undeserved reputation for being a bit busy and rowdy during the summer months, but in winter the Netherlands capital is really a beautiful sight to behold and the perfect destination for winter hen parties who are looking for a classy budget getaway.
Tenerife’s Playa de las Americas is lucky enough to still get temperatures of up to 15C in winter, which means you’ll be able to enjoy some sunshine and even relax by the pool with a cocktail or two. This popular hen party destination is designed for low budget travellers who are looking for a package deal.
Greece is well known for being temperate all year round, and is a favourite destination for clubbers. So if you know your hen party will want to dance the night away then check into Laganas for a weekend of cocktails, karaoke and clubbing. Want to do it in true hen party style? Check out Redstar for a range of fab hen party fancy dress.
Prague is the perfect winter hen party destination for girls who like a bit of glamour. Whilst not extravagant in terms of travel and accommodation, you may want to fill your purses in preparation for the markets.
Croatia is the absolute place to be right now but the best thing about it is that, despite being uber-trendy, it’s not that expensive to visit (yet). Still, there’s not a lot of nightlife in this quaint fishing village so be prepared to shell out for bespoke group excursions.
Paris accommodation may be a little pricey but the cost of travel more than makes up for it. The city is stunning in winter and the ideal hen party destination for girls who want to be inspired by the romance of Europe’s love capital.
7. New York
New York is the ultimate winter hen party destination for ladies who love to shop, so if you’re happy to dig deep then a long weekend in the Big Apple is the perfect choice for you.
It’s a long way to go, but if you’re the kind of bride-to-be who loves lying in the sun and wouldn’t mind sporting a genuine tan on her big day, Thailand is the place to be. The hours spent in the air will all be worth it once you’re ensconced in your own private beach hut.
A combination of the country’s breathtaking landscape and the otherworldly Aurora Borealis makes Iceland one of the most beautiful locations in the world. It’s an unusual hen party destination, but one that you’ll never forget.
10. Bonus Holiday – the UK!
Of course we had to save the best ‘til last, so our number 10 on the list of top winter hen party destinations is good old England itself. There are so many hen party options available in the UK and often they are cheaper during the winter months. Consider clubbing in London, a weekend in the Peak District, skiing in Scotland or sailing in Cornwall – anything’s possible! Visit Organise A Hen for ideas and inspiration for your UK hen party.
