Hen Party Fancy Dress Do's and Don'ts
Is your group choosing to have a fancy dress hen party to make it that little bit more exciting and fun? If so, there are definitely a few dos and don’ts you need to consider before hitting the town. Here is our list of dos & don’ts for hen party fancy dress to help you out.
DO: Be creative
When it comes to fancy dress, always think outside the box. It’ll be fun for everyone to come together and brainstorm some new and original ideas even if it is the silliest thing you’ve heard of, embrace the attention! Make sure you take everyone’s ideas into consideration and try to choose a theme that everyone feels comfortable wearing.
If you’re having a creative block and can’t seem to think of any original ideas, here are a few fancy dress ideas you might find helpful:

Don’t: Offend others
Our main DON’T in our dos & don’ts for hen party fancy dress is offensive costumes. It may sound obvious to everyone when it comes to choosing a theme but make sure you think about it properly before making a final decision. Racial stereotype costumes are never acceptable. The wrong choice can attract unwanted attention which would potentially ruin the night, when really you want to keep spirits high. So we strongly advise you to make sensible decisions.
If you’re dressing up as part of a group, make sure everyone commits to their role. There is nothing worse than being the odd one out. Rocking up to a party dressed as an army cadet and the rest of the group dressed as police offers will not only look strange, but could also cause upset. No one wants to stick out like a sore thumb! Going out in a matching theme like vintage will make a big impact and attract the right attention to your group and ultimately the bride to be.
DO: Use Charity shops (Upcycle)
If you’re dressing up on a budget, then look no further than your local charity shop. You may not think it’s the most glamourous idea but charity shops can be very useful. They can surprise you with many hidden gems that may be the answer to transforming you into your chosen character. Charity shops are always full of vintage style clothing, so if you’re thinking of becoming a 60’s hippie or an 80’s rock star then these places are ideal.
Don’t: Leave it last minute
Leaving it last minute can often end you up with a terrible costume. Although, we do realise that sometimes you can simply just be too busy but bad planning can come at a cost. By thinking of a theme in advance allows everyone to come up with original ideas and can be a fantastic, memorable experience.
Don’t: Don’t lose your fellow hens
Our final addition to our dos & don’ts for hen party fancy dress list is to stick together. On a night out things can get a bit wild after one to many drinks, so make sure you stick together as a group to avoid any upsets or accidents. No one likes to feel left out or getting lost so using temporary tattoo’s is a great idea. They include helpful yet quirky information that may get you back safe and sound. By following our list of dos & don’ts for hen party fancy dress will keep the bride to be elevated, everyone on top form and the laughter flowing!
