According to studies, there were more than 61 million married couples in the US in 2018. And, with so many couples tying the knot, women across the country are looking for new ways to celebrate the occasion.

While a night out with friends is a must, you may want to conjure up something a little more original if you are planning a hen party.

Here are 6 hen party ideas for you to check out:

1. Adrenaline Junky Adventure Day

If the bride-to-be has an active lifestyle, why not up to the pace with an adrenaline junkie themed adventure day? This could include:

  • Zip-lining
  • Zorbing
  • A water park

Alternatively, if you live in a part of the US with beautiful natural landscapes, you have the option to create your own adventure. For example, you could organize a hike to a waterfall.

2. Glamping

Another great option for adventure-seeking brides is to go camping. But, instead of roughing it, make it a special occasion and turn it into glamping. Here you can pull out all of the bells and whistles. Make sure to bring:

  • A fancy tent or teepee
  • An outdoor movie screen
  • Folding chairs
  • Inflatable sleeping beds
  • Coolers for food and drinks

Also, remember to stock up on champagne before the trip.

3. Helicopter Tour

A helicopter tour could be the activity of a lifetime for a bride-to-be. This is an especially good activity if you live somewhere in the US with picturesque views. For example, the Grand Canyon.

If a private helicopter ride doesn’t fit within your budget but you still want to splash, you may want to ask friends about coming together to hire a small plane. These are often more affordable, especially if you go as a group.

4. Fire Breathing Workshop

Does the bride-to-be love perform arts? If so, you may want to seek out her inner dragon and organize a fire breathing workshop. These are available in different parts of the country and can be an invigorating activity for a hen party.

During a fire breathing workshop, your teacher will slowly work up your confidence by starting the session with water. Then, she will introduce flammables so that you start fire breathing like a pro.

5. Sky Diving

There is nothing more exciting than jumping out of a moving plane hundreds of feet in the sky. Sky diving is on many peoples’ bucket list so why not find out if it’s on the bride’s?

You may also find that this is an activity that all the hen party wants to do together. You can also strap on small cameras and video the whole experience.

6. Arts and Crafts

Arts and crafts can be a great opportunity for the bride to really catch up with all her nearest and dearest. But, there are thousands of special activities you can organize related to the arts. For example:

  • Pottery
  • Glass blowing
  • Knitting or crocheting
  • Jewelry making

You can also schedule a hen party life drawing class. Companies like offer life drawing sessions to brides-to-be and all their hens.
