It’s that time of year again when Harry Potter is constantly on our TV screens. For most of us, the boy wizard was an important part of our childhood, and many of us are still as much a Potter fan as we were when the books first came out.
Harry Potter fans are some of the most dedicated you’ll ever meet from any fandom, and it has served as inspiration for hen parties, pub crawls and even weddings.
We’ve drawn together a list of the 12 best Harry Potter hen party accessories that every fan of the movies needs to see.
We think these Harry Potter inspired wristbands make the perfect hen party keepsake, with options also available for bridesmaids. These can be sent out with your hen do invitations or given out on the day. Inspired by festival wristbands, these are a great way to show off the bride’s Gryffindor colours. This style of wristband is virtually indestructible, making it a great choice for wherever your hen party might take you.
These snitch wings are an easy way to add a little minimalistic nod to Harry Potter to your hen party.
These wings can be placed on top of everyone’s favourite chocolate, the Ferrero Rocher, to give the illusion of an actual snitch. You can also use these wings as confetti or put them on top of cupcakes for a sweet touch, just remember that they’re not edible! They can even be added into your invitation or placed inside large clear balloons to make them really look like a quidditch snitch.
Everyone loves a tote bag, and this personalised hen party ‘Mischief Managed’ tote is designed with Harry’s iconic round glasses and lightning bolt scar. This is one of the more environmentally friendly Harry Potter hen party accessories and could be given out as a practical keepsake at the end of the night. We also think this would be a great way to store your post-hen party essentials, including that all-important pair of flat shoes.
Professor Sprout would approve of your environmentally friendly choice!
Another one of the practical Harry Potter hen party accessories are these personalised pouch bags. Available in three different sizes, this pouch is perfect for storing all your hen party essentials in, or for filling full of sweets in case the munchies hit.
We also think they make a great bridesmaids gift for a Potter-themed wedding to store your must-haves on the wedding day. You can even personalise these pouches with the date of your wedding or the bride’s name.
Brew your own potions (or shots, if you’re a muggle!) in these tiny vials. Coloured shots will make these vials look like they’ve come straight from Professor Snape’s potions classroom.
They’re great for preparing ahead of time as party favours or for pre-drinks and are tiny enough to fit into any clutch bag or pocket.
For those that want more minimalistic Harry Potter hen party accessories, this personalised badge is a great choice. With the very fitting ‘I solemnly swear I’m up to no good’ quote, this handmade badge can set for the tone for your night.
It’s another perfect keepsake that can be added to a shadow box to commemorate your hen party and can be personalised with the bride’s name.
Every hen party needs a sash, and these Harry Potter inspired ones are a nod to the iconic game of quidditch. These sashes can be personalised in the bride’s favourite colours, or to match the wedding colours, with six different options for text colour.
We think you could take the theming of these sashes one step further and dress up as quidditch players from your favourite Hogwarts house.
These ‘I solemnly swear I am up to no good’ pouches make the perfect hangover or emergency kit. We think they are one of the ultimate Harry Potter hen party accessories. Add in painkillers, hand sanitiser, sticky plasters and some gym to cover all your bases. Trust us, you’ll be glad that you thought ahead!
These pouches could also be used as sweet bags if you’re having an at-home hen party, and they are also available with the iconic ‘Mischief Managed’ slogan.
Did you even have a hen party if you don’t post pictures on Instagram? These props are a simple way to add a Harry Potter touch to all our photos. Show off your house pride or dress up as your favourite character with one of these photo props.
You don’t need to have a photo booth to take advantage of these props, which are easy to carry around and a no-fuss way to add some Potter magic to your hen party.
Every hen party demands a fun veil, and we can’t think anything better than this personalised Harry Potter veil. It’s a fun way to change up the traditional bridal veil and can be personalised with the bride’s future name, making it all the more unique.
As this veil is double layered and complete with a comb, it’s a perfect choice if you’re planning to go clubbing. It is also available with the instantly recognisable ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’ quote.
One of the must-have Harry Potter hen party accessories is a personalised t-shirt for each member of ‘Team Bride’. These t-shirts can be dressed up for the hen party, or even that evening as pyjamas, and we think they would be perfect to wear on the morning of the wedding when you’re all getting ready together.
Available with six text colour options, these t-shirts can be personalised with the bride’s name and once again features the quidditch motif in the classic Harry Potter inspired font.
What is a hen party without a favour? These wish string bracelets are one of the most affordable Harry Potter hen party accessories and are made with a Tibetan silver charm for each of your guests to make a wish on.
Personalise the ‘from muggle to Mrs’ backing card with the bride’s name and the date of the hen party for another perfect little keepsake of your big day.
