What to Wear for Every Hen Do Eventuality| July 18, 2018
What’s not to love about a hen party? A night out with all your girls, and no boys (unless you’ve got a stripper lined up). But, hen party outfits can be difficult to plan, especially when activities can be so varied. No matter what your hen party plans, we’ve got an outfit for you.
The Out-Out Hen Party
Ah, the classic hen party. You all get dressed up, don your tiaras, and head into town carrying various willy shaped apparatus. This calls for a vamped up version of your normal night-out outfits. A little bodycon dress is a safe bet, or try a playsuit if you’re worried about keeping your dignity if/when you fall over (flashing your knickers is not a good look). Just finish off the outfit with the highest heels you can find and you’re hot to trot.
The Day to Night Hen Party
When you’ve got activities till 5 then cocktails at 6, you need an instant outfit that can take you from day to night. T-shirt dresses look great dressed down with an oversized jacket and trainers in the day – So you’re ready for action. Then, throw off your jacket, cinch your waist in with a belt, pop on some heels and you’re sorted for drinks with the girls. No faff and you’ll look absolutely 🔥🔥🔥. Make that a large glass of wine, please.
The Pool Hen Party
If you’re jetting off to warmer climates on a pool party hen do then lucky you. The sun makes everything better. Plus a hen-do abroad will be one to remember. Pack your hand luggage with some fire bridal swimwear, and a pair of killer sunglasses. And don’t forget the factor 30, obvs. Sun, sea, and cocktails by the pool. Can we squeeze in your suitcase, pretty please?
The Ultimate Girl’s Sleepover Hen Party
Who needs a night out when you are the party right? A sleepover hen party is a perfect choice for a close-knit group of friends who want to stay in, drinking prosecco and having loads of fun. Obvs you’re going to need matching pyjamas for such an occasion. Silky bridesmaid and bride nightwear is super comfy, is a cute memento of the hen do, and most importantly looks amazing. You want to look great in those candid Instagram photos right?
The Surprise/Anything Goes Hen Party
A surprise hen party can be exciting but is an absolute ‘mare when it comes to packing. You need something that you can comfortably do activities in, but also look amazing if your surprise is cocktails on a rooftop bar. The best way to tackle this tricky situation is opting for trousers. Wide leg and culotte styles are big news this season. You could even match them with a matching co-ord top if you want to go full fashion. Just make sure to take both trainers and heels so you can take on whatever is thrown at you.
Hen Party Accessories

The devil is in the detail with party planning, so make sure you have all your decorations and accessories sorted. Every gal loves rose gold, so a rose gold themed hen party could be perfect. Banners, signs, sashes and even some novelty glasses are all essentials for the perfect bash.
