However, if you want to do a budget hen party with your close friends, below are some ideas which are not only cheap, but also ever green. You will not require a event management company to tailor your party theme. If you are ready to invest small amount of time and effort, you will be able to manage a decent party where you can not only enjoy your time but won't have to worry about the bill. So, without wasting any of your time further, here are are some hot ideas.

Hen party idea - Night out with girls

Night outs with friends are always the safest bet and require least effort. If you live in a big city like London or New York, then there are hundreds of places where you can go in the night, specially on Fridays and weekends. Night club is the safest option as it is crowded and you can drink and dance all night. If your group is not keen on dancing, then there are other options such as karaoke bars where you can sing and drink. One other option is that you can opt for dinner venue with stand up comedy or performance.

If you are not interested in either dance, singing or stand up performance, then there is an option of casino nights. One good thing about casino night is that they are open all night when compared to night clubs which most of the time close around 2-3 AM. However, if you choose casino night out, please make sure that you don't overspend. You can also plan to club couple of these night out options rather than spending whole night at one place.

Hen Party Ideas - Outdoor activities- Beach Party

There are hundreds of outdoor activities you can do dependent upon how adventurous you are. If you don't want much physical activity, then you can plan for a beach party. If you choose beach party, then you have option to covert it into a beach picnic where you can carry all the stuffs such as clothes, food, wine, music etc with you. There are some other options on the beach available to you uch as water sports etc depending upon which beach you are going to. If you are not dependent on public transport, then you can stay late and also have bonfire party in the night. On some beaches, you are also allowed to cook your food if thats add extra fun. Some of my friends did camping on the beach some time back which they found very adventurous.

Outdoor Hen party ideas - Cruise and Private Yacht

If you love sea and just don't want to spend your time on beaches, then with some extra budget, you can either hire a private yacht or book a cruise. With a private yacht, you can do all the activities which you can do on land such as dance, party or just relaxing. If you choose a cruise, its even better because then you don't have to plan anything. Just buy tickets and enjoy the set plan done by the cruise company. However, this may not leave any options for customisation as per your choice.

You can either plan for day only cruise or overnight cruise. In either case you will find lots of options to enjoy and do fun filled activities.

You can also plan for hiking and combine this options with camping and other activities. There are other options as well such as bungee jumping, para gliding etc. The list is limit less if you are ready to push yourself a bit. Skydiving is one such options where you can either spend a day or can go for full lessons spanning a week.

hen party ideas - Spa, Massage and nail art

If you are tired and want to relax with your best buddies for a day, then spa and massage sessions are good options.
