Hen Party Glamping Ideas
At Wedfest we want to bring you the best and therefore we only work with the best. Over the past few years our Hen Party accessories side of things has grown and grown and now operates out of its own website www.henpartywristbands.com
On the back of this we have got to meet and work with some awesome companies who specialise in arranging and planning hen parties or providing hen party activities or both! So obviously we pride ourselves on our festival based roots so therefore was only a matter of time before Wedfest and Beautiful Bell’s came together.
Beautiful Bells is one of the UK’s leading Luxury Bell Tent Hire / Glamping service companies. They are a family owned bell tent hire service, run by Katrina and Steve, they have been hiring their fabulous bells tents across the southern region since 2014. They provide their beautiful bell tent and Glamping service for Weddings, Events, Corporate Parties, Festivals, Glamping weekends and of course Hen Party Weekends. Read more about them at their website www.beautiful-bells.co.uk and check out their Instagram page www.instagram.com/beautiful_bells_glamping/
Recently Beautiful Bell’s were doing a photo shoot for their awesome Hen Camp and they used our fabulous range of hen party wristbands and hen party lanyards in their photo shoot.

Beautiful Bells – Hen Camp!
Based on the South Coast of the UK we are totally blessed being so close to the New Forest – which is definitely our No. 1 ‘go to’ spot for hen party glamping. Firstly we know some fabulous campsites that are hen friendly (not all are – please do check this if you’re thinking about booking a campsite for a hen weekend), but most importantly there’s such a diverse range of activities in the area for hens to enjoy: From afternoon tea to kayaking down the river to the pub!
But as a fully mobile service, we can set up camp wherever you’d like us too – whether that’s a campsite, a friends field, or even a back garden.
We’ve been working with hen parties for over 4 years now and it’s popularity is still growing! If you’re working on a budget it works out more cost effective than booking hotels, and you also get to stay together, rather than 10 different hotel rooms on different floors.
We’ve also arranged hen weekends for our own friends too. So we know how stressful it can be getting dates organised, worrying about the weather, the pressure of getting it all right and everyone getting along.
So we’ve done our bit to help! We’re able to provide tents for sleeping and also chill out tents, so if our (sometimes) temperamental English weather throws a curve ball, then you have an undercover area for eating, playing games and relaxing in. We also don’t take full payment up front. We take 25% at booking, and the balance isn’t due until 28 days before – so plenty of time to gathering in the money from everyone.
If we were to give you 5 tips for organising your hen weekend they’d be:
1: Do think ahead: Peak season from June – August can book up a year in advance
2: Get yourself a wing woman to help you organise things. A load shared is a load halved.
3: Plan for bad weather. We hope it doesn’t happen. But it might. A chill out tent might work out at an extra £20 per head for the weekend but compared to sitting in the rain…
4: Set up a bank account for the hen party and get people to pay in as and when they can – gradually. This tip came for one of our previous hens who said it took all the money stress away.
5: Book your bell tents and order your Hen Party wristbands from wedfest 😉
