If your sister, cousin, or best friend has said “yes” to the love of her life and is planning a wedding, chances are there is going to be a stagette, doe, or hen’s night party in your future. Perhaps you’re the maid of honour, responsible for planning the entire night or weekend, or maybe you’re part of a group tasked with making it an event the bride-to-be will never forget. In either case, when planning a hen’s or doe night, it is important to consider what the bride will enjoy, as well as ensure it will include memorable moments she’ll treasure forever.
For many brides, a New York City hen’s night would be a dream come true. What lady wouldn’t love hitting up the storied streets of Holly Golightly and Carrie Bradshaw? From shopping and dancing to a helicopter flight New York, there are many great options. If you’ve been tasked with organizing a doe party in New York City, fear not: we’ve put together a guide of some iconic and unique experiences you’re all sure to remember well into the future.
1. Start the day off right. Organize a true Breakfast at Tiffany’s experience for the bride. Have everyone put on their little black dresses, string on a rope of pearls, and grab your best pairs of big, black sunglasses before marching down to Tiffany’s on Fifth Avenue. To complete the look, grab a delectable French pastry and a takeaway coffee on your way, and then gaze at the shiny objects in Tiffany’s storefront displays.
2. Once everyone is well caffeinated, fed, and have had their fill of shiny objects, set to the skies with a helicopter flight New York. Offering spectacular views of one of the world’s most exciting and iconic cities, a helicopter flight New York is a perfect way to get your bearings on the city that never sleeps. Plus, you’ll all look really posh in your Holly Golightly garb – perfect for some helicopter selfies to share at the wedding!
3. Be ladies that lunch. Channel your inner Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, and go enjoy lunch in one of New York’s stylish cafes. Once you’re all sufficiently full, take a Sex and the City tour, and drive by some of the locations you saw from the air during your helicopter flight New York.
4. Hit the town. New York is full of pubs, restaurants, bars, and cafes, so you’ll have lots to choose from – it just depends on the vibe you’re going for. From low key to ultra-posh, you’re sure to be able to find the perfect place to end the evening in New York City!
