By now, I can already consider myself ‘experienced’ in organizing bachelorette parties having arranged six of them for my friends since 2011. I’m surprised how innovative and unwavering I still am after all these years (insert sarcastic laugh).

Organizing a hen night is always fun but you also have to take into consideration a lot of factors in the party: the personality of the bride, the mix of guests, your budget, and the venue.

Back in 2011, I hired a Singaporean male stripper to go sexy ‘all-the-way’ (venue: Conrad Hotel Singapore)

2012’s bride-to-be brief was to go chill-and-dainty (venue: The Sultan’s rooftop bar)

In 2013, our bride-to-be didn’t want any big surprises, hence I opted for a simple reunion dinner (venue: Spizza, Club Street)

Come 2014, I thought it’ll be a great idea to bring some of our DIY-magic to good use with a picnic-brunch (venue: Botanical Gardens)

That same year, with just six friends, we decided to take a short flight out of Singapore and spend the night drinking and dancing in Kuala Lumpur:

Fast forward to 2016, exactly two days before Sarah’s wedding day in Boracay, I’ve arranged our own bachelorette-party version of ‘pub crawling’ in the island by adding 15 sexy dares and consequences that we all needed to complete by the end of the night.

OUR MISSION: Complete the checklist of 15 dares. If we fail to complete the mission, everyone will need to get a henna tattoo on their necks. PLUS: The bride-to-be needs to be thrown into one of the hotel pools.

The bride-to-be needs to do 5 out of the 15 dares. A friend who just completed a dare can’t be tasked to do another one until everyone finishes one round of dares. Everyone only gets (1) SAVE each, i.e. you can excuse yourself from one of the dares.

PLUS: Spending five days in Boracay helped me tick off one of my 2016 personal goals (Go Clubbing Again, at least once (or twice). And just dance, dance like nobody’s watching.). Another yay!
