When it comes to that all-important airport outfit, be it for the hen or the honeymoon, here at Team Hen we feel it’s imperative - paramount even - to make sure it says ‘bride-to-be’ (both figuratively, and more often than not, literally. For reference please see our Bride Travel Pouch and/or Weekend Bag).
This isn’t the time to play your engaged status down bride-to-be, it’s your moment to shine. So, ditch that pair of old leggings you were thinking of donning for the plane, put our Bride Jewelled Glitter Hat on and gather the crew, cos’ your hen party begins the moment you hit the check-in desk (and, if you’re us, find out you’re over the baggage allowance limit). Grab everything from our White Heart Sunglasses to your favourite Isabel Marant sneakers, and for goodness sake, don’t forget your carry-on (or your passport for that matter).
#1 The Bride Jewelled Glitter Hat
No bride heading to the airport should be without her Bride Jewelled Glitter Hat. This beauty not only means she’ll feel super special on the flight, but it’ll look great on the gram. And, with a whole host of hen party decorations and accessories available as part of the Hen Weekend collection this is from, it’s a no-brainer if you’re looking for a cute hen party theme to jump on.
#2 The Luxury Tulle Bow Veil
If you’re more of a veil kind of girl, our Luxury Tulle Bow Veil is the perfect alternative. Paired with a creamy white satin bow (and easily attached via a clip) it’s the perfect accessory to team with your airport outfit, be that cute loungewear with a bridal twist or all-out glam!
#3 The Sneakers
If like us, you like to be comfy when you travel, make sure your airport outfit features your favourite sneakers. Our current favs? These gorgeous Isabel Marant Brooklee leather sneakers via MYTHERESA.COM. These high-tops will look great with anything from chic loungewear to your trusty leggings.
#4 The White Heart Sunglasses
No bridal airport outfit will be complete without Team Hen’s White Heart Sunglasses. Period. Available in pink (for the bridesmaids) and white for the bride, these heart-shaped beauties will make any bride's outfit come to life - be it for drinks with the girls, playful poolside pics or the wedding day itself!
#5 The Bride Luxury Satin Eye Mask
Now, we’re not suggesting you wear this to (or through) the airport (you’d bump into a lot of stuff) but it’s the perfect item to have to hand during the flight. If you’re travelling long-haul and the bride tribe have tuckered themselves out with all the excitement in the first 50 minutes, our Bride Luxury Satin Eye Mask will come in handy if you fancy a quick power nap!
#6 The Scarf
Don’t forget that it can sometimes get a little chilly on the plane and a sumptuous scarf (that can multitask as a blanket) can be a game changer. This Wool-blend scarf by ACNE STUDIOS via MYTHERESA.COM will look good whichever way you wear it.
#7 The Bride Script Beaded Earrings
Handmade by women artisans in Jaipur, India, these Bride Script Beaded Earrings are not only super lightweight, they’re in the sale! Arriving in our signature pink satin pouch, not only do they make the perfect gift, they’ll look great from flight to those final disco moves on the dance floor.
#8 The Travel Pouch
Meet our multitasking Bride Travel Pouch. Not only will this nifty off-white nylon travel pouch showcase your engaged status, it’ll work perfectly for carrying those all-important flight documents! Keeping everything important to-hand, just tuck it in your holdall and off you go! Or, swap the documents for your toiletries and essentials and use it as a wash bag!
#9 The Jacket
If you fancy a jacket to wear on the flight, For The Love Of Pearls’ Luxe Bride Jacket is the answer. Peppered with pearls, including pearl buttons and the word ‘bride’ beautifully embroidered across the back, it’s ideal for wearing thrown casually over the shoulders as you roll your luggage to the check-in desk.
#10 The Weekend Bag
Whether you use it as a weekend bag or a beach bag, our gorgeous Bride Weekend Bag delivers the perfect bridal vibe. Featuring gold and white chenille sewn-on patches, it’s wipe-clean and will fast become a favourite.
#11 The Bride T-Shirt
We’d suggest keeping it cool and comfy when it comes to your airport outfit. We’re thinking cute loungewear with our Instagram-worthy Bride T-Shirt underneath! With an array of changing temperatures to deal with (the UK, the airport, the plane, your destination) it’s always best to work with layers, and our cute t-shirt is perfect if the temperature suddenly rises!
