Do you want to know our top tip for making a hen party one to remember? It’s easy, the key to a great hen party is planning! The best hen parties are those that are well thought out with plenty of care and attention given to all the details. One way to make the hen party personal is to have a themed day / night / weekend, including fancy dress. You can base your hen party theme on anything you can think of, but we think the more personal the better.
To give you some help and inspiration, we have put together some of the best hen party fancy dress ideas we have come across…
Books, TV and Film
If the bride-to-be happens to be a big fan of a particular book, television show or film, this would make a great idea for a themed hen party. Fun examples include Gossip Girl, 50 Shades of Grey or Harry Potter.
Pink and Girly
Some hens have a particular preference for pink, which is awesome because it’s the perfect colour for a girly hen party! Stores such as Red Star Fancy Dress sell loads of pink hen party costumes, including fluffy Playboy bunny ears, pink tutu skits and even pink handbag hen party essentials.
A period theme is one which is set in a particular time period, such as the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s. Everyone has to get dressed up in costumes from that era and you could even come up with some creative cocktails to go with your theme, such as hippie-inspired rainbow jelly shooters or 50s style Tom Collins.
Angels and Devils
The angel and devil theme is a classic, but you can make yours even more fun by giving it a fun twist and designating the bride-to-be the only angel of the group, while the rest of you are naughty devils who are out to lead her astray! Think angel wings and devil horns for costumes, angelic cocktails and naughty shots and games of truth or dare.
Burlesque Hen Party
Burlesque has taken off in a big way in the UK and there are loads of burlesque nights that have popped up all around the country. Make your hen do a night to remember by getting dressed up in all your frills and corsetry, top the look off with an adorable fascinator hat and a pair of velvet gloves, then head on down to the nearest burlesque bar for a night of decadence you’ll never forget.
