What to Wear on a Hens Night

A hens night is a special occasion where the bride-to-be and her closest friends come together to celebrate her last few nights as an unmarried woman! During a hens event it is customary for any bride to wear white both on her wedding day, and on her bachelorette night, but what about her guests? Depending on the style of the event, it may not be clear exactly how they should be dressing, and whether they should be toning it down to make the hen herself stand out, or whether they can dress completely extra as an ode to their favourite gal.

Knowing what to wear can be subjective, but in this blog, we'll break down some of the best solutions for knowing what to wear for specific occasions and themes, hopefully making that part of the planning easier for you and your ladies.

What to Wear on a Hens Night

For a Classic Hens Night

You can't go wrong with an LBD. Whether it's short or long, form-fitting or loose, every woman has that one little black dress in her closet that makes her feel like a million bucks. If you want to add a bit of extra flair to your outfit, consider accessorising with some over-the-top jewelry or a fun pair of heels. If you're not one for dresses, no worries! A nice blouse and pants combo can also do the trick. Just make sure you avoid anything too casual, like denim jeans or sweats (unless the bride herself suggests that that’s okay).

Those Wild Hens Nights

If you and your ladies are planning on hitting up a club or bar for your hens night, then you'll want to make sure you're dressed to impress! Consider wearing something sexy but not too risqué. A tight-fitting dress or skirt with a fun top is always a good choice. Or, if you're feeling extra bold, you can go for a pair of flashy sequined pants. Just make sure you avoid anything that's too short, too low-cut, or shows too much skin (but if you’re comfortable doing this, and feel you’re most confident, why not?). Always make sure the bride is okay with what you’re wearing, after all, all eyes need to be on her!

The Outdoor Hens Night

If you're planning on spending your hens night outdoors, then you'll want to dress accordingly. Depending on the season, that could mean anything from a cute sundress to a comfy pair of jeans. Just make sure you check the weather forecast ahead of time and dress appropriately for the temperature. And if you're going to be doing any kind of physical activity, like hiking or biking, be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing that you can move around in easily.

A Hens Night at Home

If you're planning a more low-key hens event at home, and this makes knowing what to wear on a hens night a little more confusing; you can pretty much wear whatever you want! Just make sure you avoid anything too casual, like pyjamas or sweats. Instead, opt for something cute and comfortable, like a nice skirt and top or even a super simple little dress. Or, if the hen has decided for an ‘extra’ at-home party, then there’s no reason to not completely dress up to the nines!

No matter what style of hens night you and your ladies are planning, just remember to have fun and enjoy yourselves! And don't forget to take lots of photos to document the night. After all, it's a once-in-a-lifetime event.
