When it comes to the hen do, there’s no denying that the hen party outfit is a BIG deal.
Regardless of theme, there’s usually one part of the day/weekend (or week - no judgement here) that requires a showstopper of a hen party outfit; be it a dress, playsuit, shimmering skirt, matching co-ord, suit or jumpsuit and we’re here to help you find it. In a recent poll on Team Hen’s Instagram, hen party outfits (and where to source them from) cropped up as one of the things you lovely brides struggle to find, so we’ve pulled together a list of 10 brands that are nailing that coveted hen party vibe this 2022/23. So, whether you’re seeking something fully embellished with oversized sequins or a hen party outfit you’ve coveted forever but would only like to rent (meet HURR and By Rotation) we’ve listed some super slick options below.
