The History of Hen Parties

The History of Hen Parties

We all go on about 30 hen parties in our lifetime (usually all in the same year), but have you ever wondered where the strange festivities originate from? We’re here to give you, briefly, the history of hen parties through the years. Plus, all the juicy bits that have made them such a fun event for every gal on her last night of freedom.

Way, way back into Ancient Greece, the first form of hen parties came about. Within the last days before her marriage, the bride would spend time with all of her female relatives to prepare. This would include sacrificing childhood toys, locks of hair and her girdle to the virgin goddess Artemis (deep right)? This signified the bride to be’s move from childhood to adulthood, and was basically the first, more boring version of the hen party.

That’s all well and good, however it doesn’t explain why it’s called a ‘hen’ party? What does it have to do with birds? Well this answer is a pretty logical one. During the 1620’s, the word ‘hen’ was used to describe a group of women in any situation. Not just for pre-wedding celebrations. A group of women, like a group of female chickens – catch our drift. Jump forward to the 1900’s and the great female icon Eleanor Roosevelt used the phrase ‘hen party’. This was when she described her very posh Christmas party with the cabinet wives (girl power)!

When it comes to the hen party we know and love today, that all started way back in the 1970’s. This was when it was more of an expression of women’s sexual freedom. In the workplace, the hen would celebrate her leaving work and entering domesticity and motherhood by dressing up like a bride, having sexual innuendos tied to her coat and visiting the local pubs – now that’s what we call a hen party!

Alot of the history of hen parties focusing on sexual freedom, expressing yourselves and being a bit risky. With this in mind, a life drawing hen party fits perfectly into the celebrations. If you haven’t organised your final blowout just yet or you want to add something special, try this popular experience with the girls and make your 2017 hen party one to remember, just like the 70’s chicks did.
