There are all top-notch destinations, but what if you're leaving the UK behind for your last hurrah? More and more grooms- and brides-to-be are opting to party abroad these days, but while the sun and sand sound tempting in theory, you may well be worried about the entertainment - will you be able to hire a stripper if you're sequestered in Malia or Magaluf?

We've suggested a few fun hen party games
for you and the girls to play on the big night, but those were all reasonably tame by bachelorette party standards. What if you want something a little naughtier
Well, we've never been ones to shy away from the ruder side of hen parties here at IM Entertained (we do supply male strippers
, after all!) Here's another trio of terrific hen party games to try...be warned, though, because these ones are a fair bit ruder than the last batch!
Pin the Willy on the Hunk
We all pinned tails on donkeys when we were little, but this classic children's party game is a little...well, childish for a hen do. Here's a slightly more adult version: go on Google Images (you may wish to use incognito mode!) and print out a picture of a scantily-clad man. Hang your hunk on the wall, then cut a penis shape out of some pink card - this will be the, ahem, 'tail'. Blindfold each player and challenge them to pin (or Blu-Tack) the willy on the hunk; the winner is the one who gets it closest to the correct spot!
Here's a very cheeky game that your fiancé and his mates will probably wish they could have watched! Select one player - the maid of honour, perhaps - to be the referee, and split everyone else into teams of two. The referee turns off the lights, and each pair of players must swap as many items of clothing as they dare while it's dark! After a pre-agreed time limit (roughly one minute works best), the referee turns the lights back on, and the team who has swapped the most items of clothing wins! The fun of this game is wondering how many garments you're brave enough to swap - exchanging bras and/or pants could be what wins you the game, but will you be able to get them on before the lights come on...?
Who Did It?
How well do you know your gal pals? Let's find out! Give each girl a pen and three slips of paper. Each of you must write down three embarrassing personal secrets (e.g. "I showed my boobs to the camera at Glastonbury", "I once had sex in a Wetherspoons loo") and put the folded slips of paper into a hat or another container. One by one, the maid of honour removes the slips from the hat and reads out the anonymous secrets - everyone else has to guess who wrote what! The winner is the person who makes the most correct guesses.
There's nothing like a kickabout with the lads, but it's quite a low-key choice of activity for your mate's stag party. Why not make things a little more exciting by putting everyone in big plastic bubbles?
That's right, we're talking about Zorb football
! This is a great stag do activity that's particularly ideal for sporty types, and you'll really feel like you've earned those shots after working up a sweat on the pitch!
Bubble football (also known as 'zorb football') is also a fantastic way to show your mates up. The groom may think he's the Messi of his five-a-side league, but will his skills be quite so silky when he's trapped in a giant bubble from the thighs up? We doubt it!
So book your bubble football stag do
now and get ready to fall about with laughter as you and the boys struggle hilariously towards the goal! At least the tackles won't hurt as much, right?
The mother of the bride is a key player in most weddings. But does that mean she should be invited to the hen party?
This is a question that a lot of brides struggle with, and obviously, the answer will be different for everyone. It depends on how well you get on with your mum, and on the old girl's threshold for lewd hen party antics - for example, can you really picture your ma sipping Sex on the Beach through a willy-shaped straw? Or hooting at an oiled-up stripper as he tears off his trousers?
"Oh, my stars! It's almost as big as your father's!"
Clearly, a bachelorette party with mum has the potential to turn awkward very quickly. But let's not write her off yet; after all, if party suppliers bother to stock those 'Mother of the Bride' sashes, surely some people manage to integrate their mothers into their hen parties without incident?
We reckon that the hen party activities are the key. You have to choose your entertainment carefully if you want your bash to stay mum-friendly; steer clear of strippers
and opt instead for activities that you'd actually be happy to share with the woman who birthed you.
Examples of mum-friendly hen night activities:
- Cookery Workshops: Learning to bake is a great nudity-free use of your hen weekend, and there are loads of different classes to choose from, including cupcake workshops, chocolate making classes, and even pizza making sessions.
- Perfume Making Classes: If you're not hungry, why not try creating your own fragrance? You, your mother, and the rest of the girls will love learning all about different scents and how to blend them together!
- Tasteful Nudity: If you simply can't resist inviting a scantily-clad bloke to your hen do, there are ways to do this without offending your mother (or feeling embarrassed when she gets a little too into it). For example, why not try a life drawing class? It's a lot more culturally wholesome than a standard strip-show, and you'll still get to enjoy the sight of a sexy naked man.
Of course, if you're one of those girls who can't imagine a hen do without a stripper and a truckload of willy-shaped accessories, then the answer to your question is pretty obvious: no, don't invite your mum!
