    hen party
    A hen party (or bachelorette party) is a party for women only, often held for a woman who is about to be married. It may be held at a venue such as a male strip club. If held at home, it may be an occasion to compare products like lingerie or women's sex toys or to play games like "Truth or Dare", "Pass the Balloon", or a risqué version of "Consequences".

    Some companies sell "party packs" for hen parties including products like "L-plates", fur-lined handcuffs, "willy whistles" and adult toys.

    I think with spinster you refer to someone who's older than 30 years old.

    It depends on the country. I guess In Finland you can call a 25 year-old-lady a spinster. It's considered to be slightly derogatory term here.
