Going on a hen party soon ladies? Trying to decide what to wear for the weekend? Don't worry we have everything you need to know about what to wear on the hen party here, whether you're heading for a big hen night in Carlow or visiting the Treaty City as part of the Limerick Hen Party Package.
One of the big things about deciding on your outfits for the hen party is to make sure that you don't go for anything too fancy or stand outish. This is the brides weekend so make sure that you don't take any of the spotlights from her. Even if she doesn't like being the centre of attention guaranteed she won't appreciate her thunder being stolen on the hen party!

Going to the Hen Party

When going to the hen party, especially if you have a long distance to travel it's important that you're comfortable. Of course, this doesn't have to mean trackies and a hoodie. We're talking a nice pair of jeans and a cute top. Nothing dressy, just casual everyday wear. You may even have a theme or hen party t-shirts printed if so stick with that. Chances are when you arrive at your hen party destination you'll be changing for your activity or big night out so don't worry too much about this outfit ladies.

For The Activity

It's so important for you to have a change of clothes that suit your activity! If you are doing an obstacle course or something active, leggings or a tracksuit are the go-to. If you are doing something like Paint a Nude or Wine Tasting what you wear going to the hen could be perfect. Some activities have a theme attached like a Father Ted Tour goes hand in hand with a Lovely Ladies Fancy Dress. Roller Disco works brilliantly with an 80's themed outfit! Check out with the bridesmaids that are organising the weekend and see what is most appropriate.

For Dinner and Night on The Town

For the big night on the town like we said already it's important to make sure you don't go for anything that will make you stand out from the crowd too much, it's the brides weekend. Even though the bride to be may not decide on wearing white on the hen party better to steer clear of it! A great idea that we always love is giving the group a colour to wear. Maybe get all the group to wear black and the bride-to-be wear white. Let her soak up the limelight! Plus black is always a great colour to choose as it's flattering on everyone and everyone has something they could wear in black!

Going Home

For coming home from the hen party we strongly suggest comfort as long as there is nothing planned for the way home. Chances are you may have a sore hear and a bit of a sick belly after the wild night so why not wear your comfies for the journey home. Of course, if you are continuing the party when you get home we do suggest putting in a little more effort!
One of our main tips is to talk to the rest of the group on what to wear on the hen party especially the person organising the whole thing!
