If you’re struggling to find white hen party dresses, know that you’re not alone. It’s up there with being as difficult as finding your actual wedding dress; you want it to be perfect, to feel confident and to look great. So you should!
If you’re a bridesmaid or one of the wedding guests, finding hen do outfit ideas is an easy task. If you’re the bride, however, you’ve got a trickier assignment ahead of you. As the lady of the hour(s), you should aim to stand out. Traditionally, the bride-to-be wears white on her hen do as a nod to the big day itself (and so that bar staff know who to give all the free drinks to).
What should the bride wear to a hen party?
Hopefully, your maid of honour will have planned everything, so it’s a good idea to get an idea of what lies ahead. Consider what type of hen party it’ll be – will you be dancing on table tops singing your heart out to ABBA? If so, you’ll want something OTT like this ASOS LUXE drape detail dress with ruffles paired with some sparkly accessories. Think: a beaded bridal pouch and glittered tulle heeled sandals.
If it’s a fancy dinner and drinks then look to Self-Portrait’s bow-tied crystal-embellished mini dress and a pair of statement mules, and if it’s a quiet tea party-style garden party then opt for this sleek slip dress from Raey.
Many hen parties are an all-day affair, so if that’s the case, consider something that’ll look just as good at bottomless brunch as it will come evening cocktails. This mini dress from Reformation is spot on – it will have you feeling chic and special all at the same time.
