Fancy dress is an age old tradition for celebrating a bride-to-be’s upcoming nuptials. But netted tutus, fluorescent leg warmers, pink cowboy hats and plastic tiara crowns should probably be left in Blackpool circa 2002 where they belong. There’s nothing fancy about that dress up.
So whether you’re a bridezilla trying to control your own do, or a maid of honour looking for ideas that won’t cause a cock fight, then look no further. From hen night outfit ideas to creative hen party fancy dress ideas, there’s something even the mother-in-law will approve of. (Maybe…)
Hen Party Fancy Dress Ideas
Hen parties have advanced since the days of a simple night out or BYOB down the local Indian restaurant. They’ve transformed into week long holidays in the sun and city break extravaganzas. To make a memorable impact on your party destination, here’s some hen party fancy dress ideas for the raunchy or more wholesome bride-to-be.
Hen T Shirt Name Ideas
The classic hen t shirt. Wherever you’re going, you want people to know that you’re the Bride Tribe, and what better way to brand yourselves than a personalised t shirt? Print your nickname or expose a little secret about each member of the party. Make them as naughty or nice as you like!
Hen Party Abroad Themes
Sometimes, the best way to celebrate an upcoming marriage is to get as far away from the groom as possible. Kitting the bride out with a tongue-in-cheek swimsuit will guarantee she receives no unwanted attention, leaving the bridesmaids with full pick of the talent. (Think smart, girls). As you’re soaking up the sun or nursing a hangover in the shade, your squad will still look the part.
Hen Night Outfit Ideas
For a more risqé outfit for your night out, opt for a bandeau emblazoned with an original quote. Paired with some hot pants or skinny jeans, your hen party crew will need some water to put out all that smoking hotness.
Whether you’re in the Costa del Sol or Brighton pier, a jacket is an essential component for a female outing so design a custom jacket to combat late night chills. They also work well as a beacon signal should any member of the clan go astray. For a more covered up affair, create personalised dresses in varying styles to suit everyone’s different preferences, because comfort equals confidence.
