Hen night dares are a great ice-breaker and really can help get the party started. Done well it's all good fun, you'll create plenty of giggles and a truly memorable night that the bride-to-be will always look back on fondly. It can also be the source of some great hen weekend tales.
There are a number of ways of organising the dares.
Hen Party Dare Cards
You can write your hen night dares as cards which can make for a great game on its own or you can use the dare cards. Making your own can be so much more fun and you can ask all the group for dare suggestions ahead of the weekend then simply print them out ahead of the weekend (if you want to be super impressive then get them laminated).
Here's a few of our favourite dares aka...

The Hen Challenge T-Shirt
Rather than setting dares for all the group you could simply set out a set of challenges for the guest of honour to complete. The challenges should then be listed on a T-shirt (you can have a T-shirt made or get creative and make your own) for the bride-to-be to wear. As she rises to each challenge you can tick it off the list on her shirt.
A Word to the Wise... Now while we hate to be party-poopers (after all, here at GoHen we love to party and have helped over 450,000 clients enjoy fantastic hen weekends) we always try to encourage hens to have the most fun possible without upsetting the natives. Always be mindful that not everyone will be in such high party spirits and some people can find large groups slightly intimidating.
Hen night dares should be fun and with the right attitude they can be brilliant and really set your night up in style, but in the wrong hands hen night dares can be the cause for unwanted problems.
So party with gusto, have a great time but when you're singing like no one can hear you try to make sure it's somewhere suitable so no one can (unless it's karaoke, in which case give it full beans), try to make anyone you meet feel part of your jokes and not the butt of them, make friends, party hearty and have the time of your lives!
