Hen Do Packing Checklist

If you've got a hen weekend coming up one of the things you'll be thinking about is what to pack. 

The best and easiest way to do this without forgetting anything is a packing list, so we've put together this handy checklist of what to take on a hen weekend.

What Should I Pack For A Hen Weekend?

There are a few things you first need to think about when wondering what to take on a hen weekend. These are:

  • How long is the hen weekend?
  • Where is it taking place?
  • What will you be doing?
  • What's the weather likely to be?

You should take all of these into consideration, because there's no point in packing a bikini for a winter hen weekend in Prague!

What To Pack In Your Hen Weekend Suitcase

If you're going away for a few days, you'll need at least a carry-on or small suitcase to pack.

This should be big enough to fit a couple of days worth of stuff in.

Here's what you'll need to pack:


  • A jacket or coat
  • 3x T-Shirts, Tops, Shirts (or a combination)
  • 3x Trousers, jeans or shorts (or a combination)
  • 2 Dresses: A casual dress and a going out dress if that's your style
  • Jumper Cardigan or Hoodie - If the weather is cold
  • Swimsuit / Bikini - If going somewhere warm, a spa or your hotel has a pool.
  • Nightwear - PJs or something similar for sleeping in.


  • Smart shoes, flats or heels for the evenings
