Hen parties are supposed to be one of the most fun nights of our lives as brides – sending off ‘freedom’ with a smile, saying goodbye to your single days, having a big blowout with your nearest and dearest women in your life – and it should all be done in style.
The classic hen night ‘little white dress’ is an iconic part of the hen party – but the trick is getting it right. Can the dress take you from day time spa activities to a glam girly dinner to cocktails to the club? They need to be diverse, and look equally stunning when paired with a day coat and handbag as with your clutch and blazer for hitting the town.
We’ve put together our favourites below that we think are the perfect look to rock, right before becoming Mrs…
