I tend to think of a wedding as a series of exciting events, first there’s the engagement, then their might be an engagement party and just before the main event itself, there’s the hen party! Yes, of course I know there is more to getting married than just having a party but overall these are the things that many of us we will be looking forward to in the lead up to the big day. We love to share tutorials for all aspects of your wedding planning here at Bespoke Bride and the hen party is one of the events we love the most, so here’s a list of our favourite DIY’s especially for your hen party or Bachelorette including this free printable ‘How Well do you Know the Bride?’ game.

Talking of games here’s another game called ‘Porn or Polish’ that will be sure to give your gals a good giggle.

These Beyonce Lyric Glasses have a whole lotta sass!

We all love Snapchat so these Snapchat Photobooth Props are a fun alternative.

This ‘Kisses for the Future Mrs’ hen party guest book is a unique idea.

Slogan Swimsuits are a cool idea for your gals pals if your heading to the beach to soak up some sun and relax before the big day.

If your looking for a simple decor idea for your hen party check out this free printable Alphabet Banner.

A Sparkle Station is a must at every hen party right? Because who doesn’t love glitter?

In case of any big day breakdowns here is an Emergency Wedding Kit, which would make a great gift for any bride.

And not forgetting the girls, here is a Hen Party Survival Kit.


I know festival season is slowly drawing to an end now, but seriously guys we just can’t seem to quit it! So much so that we have renamed August as our ‘Month of Festival’ and we are delighted to be kicking off with these super stylish printables designed by our friends over at Hip Hip Hooray! I am always attracted to pieces inspired by Native America and Mayan culture, so after returning from Mexico recently, I thought these would be a perfect way to marry two of my favourite themes together and I love it!


If you want to get creative with your special day then in my opinion, stationery is one of the best things that you can DIY! Not only because it can be done so far in advance that there’s no need to stress in the lead up to your wedding but mostly because there are SO MANY amazing stationery companies and graphic designers who have created beautiful designs and are offering them up to the world as free printables! How very kind of them! I’ve had a little search around the net and wanted to share some of the easy DIYS and printables that caught my eye…

1: What’s not to love about flamingo cards that are inviting you to drink cocktails?! These free printables on Oh Happy Day would make the perfect hen party invitations!

2: You might recognise this beautiful envelope table plan from your truly! The Lovely Drawer sent this stationery DIY to us and we couldn’t love it any more!

3:  I love this ‘choose happy’ printable over on Fab n Free! There’s tons of positive printables on there that would look gorgeous sitting upon people’s plates!
