Your best friend / sister / cousin is getting married and she chose you to be her maid of honor or her witness on D-Day? Surprise and joy finally give way to panic as you realise that YOU have to organize the hen party (or bachelorette party). If you want to have this party in Paris, here are a few ideas to help you get through its organization without too many cliches.
1. Photo Shoot
Your head will obviously be full of good memories after your friend’s hen party, but why not materialize them?
Of course, any photographer will do the job, but some are specialized in doing hen parties and will be better able to shoot the essence of this day.
Some of them will even lend you a few accessories – such as glitter or confetti, for instance.
Average price from €250.
2. Spa Session
Preparing for a wedding can be stressful.
So what do you think of offering the future bride a moment of relaxation in a SPA, and enjoying it with her?
Come and be pampered for 2 hours with traditional massages. And also enjoy the famous hydrojet massage beds and zero gravity massage chairs.
€ 420 for 7 pax.
3. Private Karaoke
We are not talking about karaoke in a bar, but about renting a private box for 8, 10 or 15 people for 2 hours exactly like it is done in Asia.
The playlist is very large and regularly updated.
If you are the type who enjoys singing along, this can be the perfect activity for you and is generally relatively inexpensive.
From € 10 to € 18 per person.
4. Escape Game
An escape game is not necessarily what we think about first when we want to organize a bachelor/ette party, and yet this is definitely a way to have fun with friends since escape games generally reinforce group cohesion.
If you do not speak French, no worries, most escape games are both in French and in English.
Average price is about €30 per person.
5. Private Cruise Upon the River Seine
All you dream of is a ride along the Seine? Unfortunately, tourist riverboats are not exactly a dream for this very special day.
But you can change this thanks to My Paris River or Paris Water Way which will all transform you into the princesses of the Seine for a few hours by renting a small cruise boat to you for your group of friends.
From €450 for the boat (12 pax max) for 1h30.
6. Limousine tour
If you are seasick, maybe the terrestrial version of the cruise will suit you better: have a Paris tour in a limo.
You will have the privilege of discovering the most beautiful places in Paris from a new perspective and in luxurious comfort.
The limousine adapts to the event. The driver takes care of the ride and will ensure your safety and comfort, you will only have to fully enjoy your ride.
