Dressing for a wild bachelorette party doesn’t need to be a drag- nor does it need to equal feather boas, home-made tees or phallic dollar-store accessories (unless you’re into those). Just keep in mind that for her final hurrah as a single girl, your bride-to-be friend will want the night to revolve around fun and festivities, so opt to avoid the dull. The rules that apply to wedding guest attire should be far from your mind, with the help of a cocktail or six.
Put A Bling On It
Here’s hoping the bride hasn’t issued an official bachelorette party theme, costume, or “I’m with the bride” tank tops. It’s not too late for you to pipe up and provide her with a chic alternative- simply, all wear something sexy! If she is stuck on sticking her partners in hen-night crime in matching looks, offer this modern idea: the bride dons a sparkly white mini dress, while those attending stick to darker hues in shimmering metallic textures. The photos will still be memorable, trust us.
No doubt the hair will be let down, the shots will be copious and the results messy. But don’t let that mean you’ve got to follow suit. Instead, go for a sexy-yet-subtle long sleeved mini like this Michael Michael Kors frock, and these L.A.M.B. wedges, perfect for dancing all night. Mixed metals and pops of colour in a bold Rebecca Minkoff clutch and olive green nails will allow you to stand out- because let’s not forget, she might be getting hitched, but who’s to say you can’t get your single girl on?
