Bash the Budget…on your Acacia hen weekend
We know hen weekends can add up, especially if you have lots of friends tying the knot in the same year. Making the weekend extra special for your best mate whilst ensuring no-one is put off by the budget, can be a tricky balance. A self-catering hen weekend can help. You plan costs upfront, keep away from expensive hotel and bar costs, whilst still making the weekend extra special.
We have great ideas for making your money go further whilst staying at a stylish UK venue with fab activities. Our budget weekends are simple; choose a well priced cottage, add some budget busting activities and finish with some DIY extra touches, fit for spoiling any princess.
Just wanted to thank everyone at Acacia for making this weekend so perfect for Laura's Hen. Everyone was fantastic and couldn't be happier with how the hen do turned out. Couldn't have done it without you! :)..
It’s good to add a couple of activities into your Budget Busting Weekend itinerary, even to give yourself a break from all the organising. Not all activities are expensive, you can keep a tight hold on the purse strings by adding some super fun at low prices. Punting on the waterways, following the clues in a Treasure Hunt or having a delicious supper delivered to your accommodation, are great places to start.
If you’re aiming to organise your hen weekend on a shoe string, self-catering accommodation offers you the perfect opportunity for controlling your budget. Selecting low cost accommodation, at out of season prices provides a real saving right from the off. Add in a couple of low cost activities to help take away some of the organising hassle. Then, fill your car boot with food and alcohol from your local supermarket, creating DIY decorations and organising hen weekend games which add some serious fun.
Our hen groups are always telling us that it’s not just the venue and activities which make our weekends special. It’s our individual payment system, expertise and ideas which help them inject the wow factor in their weekend. And because we’re with you every step of the hen organising journey, you can tap into our experience at any stage whether that’s questions about what food to take, games to play, places to go or decorations to use.
