As with the male buck’s party, the hen’s party is a ‘female
only’ get together for the bride, her attendants and the guests
who will be attending the wedding. It is advisable to have this party
at least three weeks prior to the wedding.
The bridesmaids are in charge of inviting the guests and organising
where the party will be held. Most popular choices are good restaurants
with guests moving on to dance

Usually quite a rowdy affair, the buck’s party should definitely
be held a minimum two to three weeks prior to the wedding. Some grooms
have emerged from the festivities of a buck’s night with multi coloured
hair or shaved hair and eyebrows no matter how loudly they protest.
The buck’s party is an all male affair for the groom, his attendants
and guests. Organised by the groomsmen, traditional entertainment has
been known to include female strippers and the like. While this is less
popular in this day and age, if you will be offended by any entertainment
of this kind, you should let the groom know. Most grooms are subjected
to this type of entertainment by their friends even though they request
that these entertainers not be included in the party.
A lot of buck’s parties are being held at day time events such as
the horse racing or other sporting events so as to avoid the after dark
entertainment. This could be the alternative if the groom would like to
move away from the traditional style of entertainment.
