Always the best way to make sure you get all the attention on your night out. With the right theme, you and the girls can get all dressed up before hitting the town in style, making for hilarious photo opportunities and an all-around memorable experience. Don’t forget your hen accessories, hats and sashes are somewhat traditional these days. For some great costumes ideas click here and check out some of our favourites.

As the night begins you and the girls might want to have a little pre going out party to help bring your guests together and get them in the right mood for a Manchester hen night.

Okay so it’s easy saying you’re going to have the hen do of a life time and it is going to be a true night to remember, then you wake up the next morning with a hangover and only a foggy recollection of the night before. That’s what photos are for so make sure you bring your phones out and don’t forget an emergency charger while you’re at it because take it from us, you won’t want to miss a thing. You could even take it to the next level and book one of our glamorous Vintage Photoshoots for you and the girls to make lasting memories.

4. Playlist

This one should be obvious, you can’t have a party without some great tunes and you can’t have a hen party without some girly ones. You’re going to need something to get your pre going out party heated up, we like Run the World (Girls) by Beyonce for that. Something to get you in the girl power mood like Love Machine by Girls Aloud is an absolute must. Make sure to get a few classics in the mix as Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper and I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor for the nostalgia factor and you just can’t go wrong.

5. Drinks
