Origin of Hen Do Parties

Hey, hen do parties did not just come out of thin air; they can be traced as far back as the 5th century where a pre-wedding feast took place in Sparta. There are also reported cases of hen parties in North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

Let’s also take the case of Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, a former First Lady of the United States who in 1940 hosted ladies of the press and cabinet wives in a Christmas hen party.  Alternatively, hen parties were a black-tie event held by a bride’s father in honor of his soon-to-be-wedded daughter.

Hen parties in the Middle East are referred to as Henna and it is more than a few hours of good time and laughs since it is actually an important culture in this region. It is believed that the celebration purifies the bride from evil.

Why Marbella?

Hen weekends in Marbella are usually a sight to behold and the same goes for Marbella holidays and nightlife. But then, what has gotten the attention to people to the tourist region? We’ll tell you in a bit.

First off, Marbella is a Spanish city in the Province of Málaga and it is situated on the Mediterranean Sea. Its location makes it one of the most important tourist attractions in Spain. You can feed your eyes on Whales, Twait Shad, or European Sprat in the sea.

There are also 27 beaches in the region and notable among these are those located in Artola, Venus, La Fontanilla, Puerto, San Pedro Alcántara. Marbella also has archaeological heritage and it boasts of several museums including Museum Cortijo de Miraflores, Bonsai Museum, and Mechanical Art Museum. 

There is also the region’s climate to look forward to given that its average annual temperature is around 18 °C (64 °F). The region also experiences average sunshine of 2,900 annually.

Likewise, snow also covers the mountain occasionally and takes about a day or two to melt. In simpler terms, it is neither too hot nor cold and just right enough to leave you bathing in the sun for hours. This and many more have made Marbella a one-stop for a hen do and stag parties.
