We all know weddings can be a costly endeavour, but have you ever considered the cost of of a hen party? (If you’re a spreadsheet queen like us, you probably have.)
Believe it or not, the average price of a hen (or stag) party, per person, is £507!
A survey conducted by Banana Moon Clothing revealed than over a quarter of people confessed to having spent more money attending their friends’ parties than on their own holidays and a third (33%) of those invited on a hen/ stag party have been expected to take annual leave.
Wondering where all your money goes?
£63 pre-wedding gifts
Thinking £507 is a bit on the costly side? You’re not alone.
Four in five adults (80%) said stag and hen dos are becoming too expensive and nearly half of the respondents (46%) said that they've felt pressured into attending a party that they couldn’t afford.
Worry not though, the money is well spent. Over a third of people surveyed said they had a better time at the hen party than the wedding itself , and a fifth said they had a better time at their pal’s party than on holiday with their partner - eek!
