How much are you spending on your hen party?

Survey reveals the rising cost of hen and stag dos, with a price tag that might shock you.


A fabulous hen party can be such a treat when you’re in the midst of wedding plans, but it seems those ‘L’ plates and sparkly feather boas are adding up…

In fact, the average cost of a hen party has now reached £153 per person, with stags splashing out even more at £157.

The survey, conducted by The Stag Company and Hen Heaven, revealed that the cost has risen considerable year on year, starting at £102 for women and £91 for men back in 2008.

Alongside these surprising statistics, the hen and stag do survey revealed more fascinating details that you might want to chat to your fiancé about.

74% of men revealed that they had lied to their partners about what they got up to on stag dos, with visiting a strip club being the most popular lied-about stag do activity. 59% of men also admitted to deleting photos on their phones after the stag weekend.

But you females can get off your high horse, as 43% of women asked also lied about their hen do activities!

When it came to hen and stag do trends, partying abroad was a popular choice. Marbella was the stand out hen and stag do destination, accounting for 66% of all overseas bookings in 2012.
