What to wear to your own hens party? At one I recently attended, the bride-to-be (my best friend, Lydia) opted for a super hot ’60s-inspired look, with a modern twist. She wore a white satin mini covered in little red love hearts, with pale pink platform pumps, wide-framed white sunnies and her hair in a half-up-half down mod-style, with a white tulle bow in the back.
“When I started looking for outfits, I had two main ideas: something cute and white, like a pre-wedding dress vibe, and then something a bit bolder,” Lydia tells me in a hungover voice note, when I ask her about her outfit inspo, days after the big day.
“Then I found this ridiculous one with love hearts and it made me think ‘this is the one day that I can be as extra as I want and no one can say anything about it’, so I went for it. I wanted it to be a combination of revealing and sexy, but still a bit bride-like. The aim was to look hot as f*ck and I wanted it to be obvious that I was the bride-to-be. I think that’s a big one, you want everyone to know that it’s your party, you know?”
And that she did. Pulling off the perfect marriage (hehe) of cute and sexy, with a love heart midi that very much stole the show. White for the wedding vibes, hearts because lurrrrve, and a tight fit because she wanted a bit of slutty element, too. Just the right amount.
“You’ve just got to lean in,” she advises. I’ve always cringed at the idea of a Hens party, because they can look so tacky… but when you’re actually in it, it’s fabulous. And it’s like, why not? It’s actually the most fun. Go big!!!”
So, according to Lydia, think girly, bold, extra, kitsch… and you’ll be on the right track. Here are eight dresses you could wear to your own hens party that’ll undeniably steal the show.
