Not in the UK. I’m pretty sure it’s sort of like a bachelorette party…

its a bachelorette party…

mine…we went to a male strip show and had cocktails in the centre.

it usually involves drinking (doesnt have to involve strippers) and some kind of penis shaped item – straws or whatever. possibly fancy dress or some kind of accessorie…we wore sparkly hats and had a sort of burlesque theme. sexy black dresses

I saw a movie once where the girls did a classy hen night where they went out to a french restaurant wearing black suits (black jacket, slacks, tie and white shirt) and short black bob wigs with fake mustaches and red lipstick. It was soo cute and ever since then I have dreamed of having a hen night with wigs! 

My friends and I are not the types to do the penis-theme accessories and we’re not exactly day-spa girls either. A fabulous night out with martinis and wigs is right up my alley.

@Overjoyed:  well hen party is usually with friends drinking (and lots of people dont invite older folks). there is sometimes a mum/gran friendly part like a meal, or afternoon tea or something

princess kate’s would have been very tame and controlled to avoid risk of risque photos coming out.
