While the most talked-about disasters on 'Don't Tell the Bride' are usually dress and venue related, it's easy to forget how many disastrous hen nights have taken place over the course of the show. From terrible budgeting to utterly selfish grooms, the show has produced some truly terrible hen parties over the years, which left us both amused and horrified all at once.
Here are some of the worst:
Andrew and Amanda - All Dressed up With Nowhere to go...
Amanda wanted the typical girly hen night, complete with veils, lashes and cocktails; not too much to ask for surely? Well, Andrew certainly didn't get the memo, because they ended up being sent on a mucky treasure hunt, whilst still in their heels and party frocks.
Rhiana and Rory - Hungry Hens
While the importance of providing yummy food for the hens is always a must, it's probably not the best idea to send them to the bride's favourite Kebab house. While bride Rhiana could appreciate her betrothed's idea, the rest of her hens were less than impressed when the minibus pulled up outside the venue.
Katie and Darnell - Limo Dreams
Katie and her hens were overjoyed when a great big party limo pulled up outside, expecting to be heading out for a fun-filled night on the tiles. Their expectations soon changed drastically, however, when they spotted the venue that the groom had chosen from them. Instead of drinking and dancing, they ended up spending the evening in a rather subdued bingo hall.
Jay and Ian - Left in the Cold
Although adventure hens can be great fun for some groups, this one fell a bit flat to say the least! While the groom partied in Thailand, the bride was left to complete an outdoor zorbing course in the grand old British rain. While a post-challenge treat may have redeemed the hen, there was no such luck for this group, who ended the day shivering over a cuppa.
Amy and Josh - Better Late Than Never?
Grooms on the show have a habit of leaving things to the last minute, but Josh really took the biscuit on this one, informing Amy of her hen do only three hours in advance! For many hens, this wouldn't even be enough time to get their hair and nails done, let alone plan the entire thing!
Matt and Rian - A Right Balls up
The curse of the selfish groom struck again in this episode, as Matt jetted off to Vegas to enjoy an epic stag with his mates. In contrast, Rian's hen was slightly less extravagant; consisting of a round of crazy golf and a game of bingo. Why grooms seem fixated on the idea of a bingo hen night, we have no idea, but the only bingo we want to be playing is the Drink and Dare
Jessica and Luke - No Monkey Business
While we often encourage hens to try something different on their hen do, this doesn't usually involve cleaning up animal poo... Sadly, this is exactly what Jessica was treated to on her hen, which made for one of the most bizarre parties ever featured on the show.
Jeydene and Luke - Hey Big Spender
In terms of poor thought and poor budgeting, Jeydene's hen party has to be one of the worst we've ever seen on 'Don't Tell the Bride'. The hen cost a grand total on £27, which was spent on a takeaway pizza, and a night at the local playing charades with only £7 left to spend... Again there's nothing wrong with feeding your hens, but a takeaway certainly shouldn't be the highlight of the entire party..
