How to host the perfect hen’s party in Fremantle, Perth

It’s your best friend’s last night out as a single girl and you’re the maid of honour, why not organise the best hen’s party for her in Fremantle?

There’s something for everyone in Fremantle and here are five ideas and venue recommendations to help you organise the perfect hen’s party in Fremantle that will mesmerise the bride-to-be and leave her with a long-lasting memory.

1. Toast the Bride in Fremantle

Fremantle is the magical destination! If you’re planning to have a big night, toasting the bride-to-be, make sure she is dressed to impress before she ties the knot as this is the night she will be the centre of attention whether she likes it or not as you all head south and venture through some of Fremantle best bars and pubs.

First stop – escape the bustle of Fremantle’s main streets and head to the newest old pub – Ball and Chain, located in the beautiful historic Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges. The Ball & Chain offers the widest range of Matilda Bay Craft Beer on Tap, a wide selection of wines, bourbon, scotch, rums and other enjoyable spirits. In addition, if you’re looking for a dose of music to go with your drink, Ball & Chain offers live music every Friday- Sunday.

Your next-best option could be Mojo’s Bar in North Fremantle. Not only do they support local bands and artists, they also bring in an international touring artist from time to time and better yet they mix great cocktails. Other well-known bars in Fremantle worth crawling into on her hen’s night includes Strange Company (slightly more upscale), Whisper Wine Bar for a taste of France, and Who’s Your Momma, the perfect place to party in a swanky way.

2. A private hen’s party in Fremantle matters

If the idea of drinking till she drops, hitting the crowded dance floor, and getting dressed up in a tedious costume sounds terrifying, then there’s definitely a more exclusive, classy and pleasant way to plan her hen’s party in Fremantle.

The bride-to-be may value a private space with the people she loves with no hindrance from outsiders, and if she appreciates good food, drinks and room for conversation then there’s no better place in Fremantle than Marine Lounge Bar. Open 7 days a week, it is the perfect spacious and stylish spot to chill out and mingle while you sip away on some of the best local and international wines.

For a private dining experience with the ladies, the Calista Room next to The Harbour Master can be hired for up to 26 persons. Picture a long dining table, draped with white linens and styled to your specifications. Your private hen’s party will feature great food and wines to pair with your meal in a beautiful environment. Be sure to add games that will test the bride to be on how much she knows her friends and think of the most exciting penalty if she gets her answers wrong. Since it’s a private space, she wouldn’t mind going all and neither do our team.

3. Flaunt those sexy curves

Summer is a popular month for weddings and hen’s parties in Fremantle. Trade in those common pink ‘bride to be’ sashes for colourful and fun sunnies and have the hen’s party out in the sun. Pack in floppy hats, sunscreen, hand fans, custom hair ties, lip balm into their goody pack and the list goes on. For a more private and relaxing atmosphere, The Poolside Bar offers a warm and
inviting space for the ladies including complimentary use of resort pool with towels provided and LIVE DJ on Sundays. You and the girls can take a seat to soak up the sun on the deck or laze in one of the day beds when you can’t take the heat any longer. If you don’t mind the crowd and prefer a view of the ocean, Bathers Beach or Little Creatures Next Door could be the other two options where you could take advantage of Fremantle’s beautiful summer weather and clear blue skies on this special day.

4. Relax and unwind

There’s no better way for you and the girls to relax than with an indulgent spa. Wedding preparation can be quite stressful for the bride to be as well as her bridesmaids. Forget about the busy and bustling world outside and step into a serene and tranquil environment where you and your girls will be able to release any tension and stresses with a sensational day of pampering. Endota Spa in Fremantle specializes in relaxation, remedial, organic and advanced facials, and much more. What a better way to get all the girls prepped up for the wedding when the hen’s night is so close to the ceremony. Endota Spa is located next to Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges where you and the girls can enjoy pre-dinner drinks at the Ball & Chain and finish the day with a private dinner at The Calista Room. An ideal hen’s party that is complete from beautifying to belly-filling! To end the night, why not surprise her with an overnight stay at the Hotel too. No one has to worry about who’s driving at least. Other spa options in Fremantle we’d recommend you explore include Keturah Day Spa with packages available for both men and women or Manusa Organic Day spa that is well known for using chemical free products to protect mother nature.

5. A full-day itinerary hen’s party in Fremantle

Is the bride-to-be more of an adventurous and active lady? If yes, why not plan the perfect hen’s party around activities you and your girls can burn your calories off by exploring Fremantle with Fremantle History Walking Tour. The tour is about 2kms in length and takes approximately two hours, including time for a refreshment stop along the way. The tour is walked at a leisurely pace and goes past many of the recognised landmarks of Fremantle. If you decide on the 5.15pm tour it could be described as a pub crawl tour as it includes a couple of hotel stops along the route, stopping at some of the oldest hotels in Fremantle. But if you and your girls much prefer something exciting, the Fremantle Prison Night Tour is a great option to explore the darker side of Fremantle!

Even though a hen’s do is to celebrate the bride-to-be’s last night of freedom, you and your girly get-togethers also serve as a fantastic way for members of the bridal team to meet, get acquainted and bond with each other. We hope this list has given you and your girls some inspiration to laugh ’till your sides split and create lifelong memories to be treasured. Have fun organising the perfect hen’s party in Fremantle and congratulations in advance to your bestie!
