Hen Party Theme: Chick Flick Night

Every girl needs a chick flick night once in a while. Whether it’s the end of a long day and you’re looking to escape into a story or you just need a reason for a catch up with your bestie, nothing quite beats a deceptively not so quiet night in.

So, in the lead up to your big day, a relaxing catch up could be just what you need. Here are top picks for a chick flick night!

Mean Girls

“Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by Regina George…” has to be one of our favourite quotes of all time. This movie is not just a movie showing us the trials and tribulations of being a teenage girl, it’s hilariously written by SNL star Tina Fey. For those who haven’t seen it, prepare for back bending laughter and uncontrollable breathing!

The Notebook

Another Rachel McAdams classic, this movie requires a lot of tissues and stifled tears. Hard to believe this movie was nearly produced 10 years ago, it’s a classic chick flick movie for anyone looking for a romantic movie with a good cry. We here at WeddingDates challenge any person who claims not to at least come out of this movie with a lumpy throat.


Bridesmaids is definitely the grown up girls version of Mean Girls. Written by another SNL veteran, Kristen Wiig, not only is this movie hilarious but it’s also created for women, by women! Kristen seems to capture exactly what it feels like to be a bridesmaid as well as making us fall off our couches with laughter. Anyone who can watch the engagement party speech scene and not laugh is definitely missing a funny bone.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

An oldie but a goodie, Audrey Hepburn glows as Holly Golightly, the New York socialite who becomes interested in a young man that moves into her apartment block. Audrey’s performance of Moon River has to be one of the most iconic scenes (along with her carrying an oversized cigarette holder) of all time. A recommended up beat classic for anyone!
