Bride Hen Do Outfits
It’s very traditional for the bride-to-be to wear white on their hen do, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to this! We’ve picked out two of our favourite bride-to-be outfits for those of you who want to follow the white bride theme or you want to create your own rules.
These two outfits are perfect for any evening activities that are planned. If you’re keeping the weekend as a surprise, wide leg trousers and a dressy top is an easy combo you can rely on without worrying if you’ll be overdressed or underdressed. Wide leg trousers are super flattering for curvy girls too with a loose floaty fit throughout.
Hen Do Guest Outfit
Being part of the bridal party, you most likely have a better idea of what you’re getting up to over the weekend. The bridal party wearing all one neutral tone with the bride standing out in a bold colour is a nice little touch to make the bride feel extra special with all eyes on her.
These two outfits offer a low-key tone in a neutral beige and signature black, perfect to let your bride-to-be take centre stage. If you’re cocktail making, heading out for dinner or going out-out afterwards, you can get glam in both of these outfits for whatever the evening holds…
Our top tip: make sure you’re wearing comfortable heels! You can be on your feet for the majority of the day depending on your plans, so you don’t want your aching feet to slow you down ordering shots…

If you’re beaching it up abroad, a pool party is most likely on the agenda, especially if you’re jetting to Ibiza! We know not every bride-to-be wants to wear white swimwear, the most important thing is you want to be comfortable and feel confident on your big weekend.
This crochet maxi cover up is a great layer to add to any poolside and beach look, giving a nod towards the bridal theme that you can throw off and on as you please. It also offers extra coverage as you head from one destination to the next.
