10 white hen party dresses for the bride to wow in

If you’re a bride-to-be, choosing a wedding dress is one of the most important and special decisions you’ll make, but it’s not the only outfit you need to think about. It’s likely your hen party (or bachelorette party if you’re in the US) is looming, and if you follow tradition, that’s one more white dress to consider.

To contrast their wedding dress, many future brides go for a LWD (that’s a little white dress) that’s shorter and more fun. It all depends on your hen party plans, so we’ve curated a selection, from white sparkly hen party dresses with all-over sequin embellishments to elegant silk pieces, and white midi dresses that are more casual for daytime events. Many brides are now choosing to have multiple hen parties, so there’s every chance you could be shopping for one of each.

In true Paris Hilton style, the socialite had a Las Vegas bachelorette party (where she wore pink) and a ‘Paris in Wonderland’ themed bridal shower in LA. We love the lace detail of the Self-Portrait dress she wore – and the heart-shaped sunnies.
