If you know a lucky lady who is getting married soon, then it can only mean one thing – it’s time to plan her hen party!
Planning a hen party can be a lot of fun or it could get really stressful – especially if you have a lot of guests to invite and bridesmaids to involve in the planning process. That is, of course, until you find the ideal venue to play host to the party.
Here at St James Hotel, we aim to help ease that stress by providing you with a top-class party venue in Nottingham. You ladies will now have one less thing to worry about!
St James offers a variety of party venues for your night to remember, from stylish ballrooms right through to compact rooms, ideal for more intimate gatherings. Whatever your requirements, we will do our absolute best to ensure that you and all your guests have a great time.
Our in-house bar and lounge, No/6, serves exquisite food, snacks and cocktails to suit all your hen party needs. Depending on your party budget and requirements, our restaurant can cater for all of your guests and craft a bespoke hen party package just for you. No/6 is also a great spot to head to for an after-party catch up and nightcap.
If you require any additional assistance with planning and getting your party started, our efficient staff will be more than happy to help you. Just let us know and we will be on hand, with an aim to give you a memorable experience.
Once your venue is sorted, you can then focus on all the party arrangements. From drinks and scrumptious food to blaring out karaoke classics, the possibilities for how you can celebrate your last night of freedom are endless! With your favourite ladies in tow, this is your night to paint the town red!
While the actual wedding day itself is something that every girl has spent a lifetime planning in their head, the hen party may be something of an afterthought – but it shouldn’t be. The lads have their stag night, so it is essential that the girls also have their night… bigger and better than anything the groom’s best man could muster!
If you are struggling for entertainment ideas, here are five simple yet fun things you could consider.
Always fancied a hen party in Vegas but your purse doesn’t quite agree? Don’t be disheartened. Look into professional casino hire and celebrate in true Vegas style to make it a party to remember.
Similarly, a casino night doesn’t have to revolve around money. Play just for fun and avoid the need to check your bank account in a panic the next morning!
Give the ladies a chance to show off their best vocal skills and arrange a karaoke contest with all the bride’s favourite songs on the playlist. There’s always one who can’t wait to get up on stage and belt out some classic Whitney Houston! It’s all good fun and makes for a fantastic ice breaker in the morning when you are all probably feeling a little worse for wear!
It is a hen party, after all, so one thing is for sure – plenty of selfies will be taken throughout the night! Why not turn this into a fun activity? Arrange for a photo booth at the party with quirky and interesting hen party props. The girls are sure to love it!
In addition, all the pictures from the night will make for a fantastic memento of your hen party to stick inside a photo album (or plaster all over Facebook and Instagram). Ensure your hen party is one that can never be forgotten!
This is a popular choice for hen parties. Opt for a theme and ask each guest to come dressed as a character or celebrity of their choice. You could even have a prize for the best-dressed guest to spice it up a bit more.
Remember that it’s all good innocent (or not-so-innocent) fun, and whatever ensemble you and your girlfriends opt for, L plates are a must! We don’t make the rules.
Afternoon tea parties are becoming an increasingly popular way to celebrate an occasion with class and style. Bond over tea and cake and recall all those lovely moments you’ve shared over the years. You might need a few tissues at the end of this one!
Here at St James, we specialise in the traditional afternoon tea. Alongside a variety of exquisite sandwiches, we serve an impressive selection of treats including freshly baked scones, brownies and cakes. All this and more for just £12.95 per person. And, if you believe a hen party isn’t complete without a drop of alcohol, worry not. Add a glass of Prosecco to your afternoon tea for just £5.
When you’re all partied out, why not end the night in style with one big sleepover? St James boasts 87 fully-furnished, beautifully-designed bedrooms. Check into our luxurious rooms after the party and allow yourself to relax. We also operate a 24-hour room service for those midnight munchie moments.
Once morning rolls around, simply pop down to No/6 to indulge in the most fantastic breakfast you can find anywhere in Nottingham. We will ensure that your every need is taken care of during your stay with us.
