33 Epic Pieces To Wear On Your Hen Do—Whatever Plans You Have In Store

It’s wedding season, which also means that it’s hen do season, as brides-to-be take a moment to celebrate their upcoming nuptials with their closest friends. From BBQs in the garden to whirlwind trips to Ibiza, people can approach hen dos in wildly different ways. However whatever level you want to go to with your hen do, we’ve found the perfect outfit so you don’t have to spend hours trawling for ‘the one’. Typically brides will choose to wear something head-to-toe white as a nod to tradition and make them stand out from the rest of the party, whether that’s with a white swimsuit or a white sequin party outfit.

We here at Who What Wear don’t follow or dictate rules when it comes to outfit ideas, so we’ve also included some inspiration for the bride who wants to blend in a little more and doesn’t want to wear anything white. Silver and metallic sequins are also becoming a popular choice, especially for those who are making the most of the Y2K revival and want to dress like they’re in a girl band for the celebration. As always accessories play a key part in a hen party look, and we’ve found some amazing options from personalised white bows to Mrs baseball caps.

So whether you’re going glamping and to your own makeshift festival, or are heading to the beach, keep scrolling for a hen-do edit that will make any bride even more excited for whatever they have in store.
