10 Hen Party Dress Code Ideas for the Stylish Bride

Don’t underestimate your hen party! Planning the perfect hen party takes almost as much organisation as planning the big day itself, so if you’re a maid of honour or bridesmaid in need of some serious inspiration, you’re definitely in the right place. Especially if your bride-to-be is no fan of garish pink feather boas and matching slogan t-shirts, which is why we’re bringing you plenty of stylish ideas for a fun and fabulous hen party – without the tack!

While the bride-to-be may not want a particular theme, they may still like the idea of a dress code or overall hen party ‘vibe’. A stylish hen party dress code is a great way to get everyone in the party mood and make the gang feel like a true bride tribe – plus you’ll get lots of brilliant photographs for the ‘gram. So, keep scrolling for some of our favourite hen party themes and dress codes for the chic bride-to-be…

Quick Fire Tips for Choosing a Stylish Hen Party Vibe

  • Make sure you let the hens know about the dress code – particularly if you want them to don coordinating outfits. We suggest creating a WhatsApp group or shared Pinterest board to make sure everyone is clued up!
  • Choose a theme that you know your bride would like and is relevant to her! If you know she loves dressing up and getting glam, embrace it!
  • Consider the location of the hen party and the activities you have planned. For instance, if you’re going glamping you’ll want to think of a theme that suits this – such as bohemian dresses and flower crowns!
  • Don’t forget to think about the budget side of things. We’re sure the bride won’t want her hens stressing about spending tonnes of money, so perhaps choose a theme that is still friendly on the purse strings.

Go Glam with Great Gatsby

This is a super fun dress code for your bride and her hens to follow! Channel the Roaring 20s with sequin gowns, vintage-tyle make-up and plenty of jewellery for a glam art deco look.

Go Modern with Monochrome

Every woman has an LBD (Little Black Dress) stocked in her wardrobe, which makes this a simple yet stylish theme for the bride’s hen party. The bride will dazzle in a white gown (a sophisticated white veil is a must-have), while the hens will look super chic in black outfits! This is the perfect choice if you want to go out clubbing too.

Slumber Party Vibes

If your bride wants a hen party that’s totally relaxed – whether that’s a spa weekend or a DIY pamper session at home, we love the idea of slumber party attire. Grab some cute PJs, slippers, eye masks and personalised robes and enjoy an indulging evening with plenty of luxury treatments and of course… fizz!

The Bohemian Bridal Babe

Bring the festival vibes to the hen party with a boho dress code. We’re talking floating maxi dresses, floral gowns, fringing galore and of course – flower crowns! You could even pack some metallic temporary tattoos and face jewels to go all out.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a stylish hen party theme for your bride-to-be! Which is your favourite?
