FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Bachelorette Party

Last week on the blog we broke down what to wear to a bridal shower, this week we’ll be talking bachelorette party attire! Bachelorette parties are the perfect excuse to get dressed up and hit the town with your best friends to celebrate the bride’s last hoorah as a single woman! There are a few things to consider when figuring out what to wear to a bachelorette party, including where you’re going, what the plans are while there and what the weather will be like. Ahead we’ve provided some bachelorette party outfit inspo for the bride and her guests, no matter the destination!


If you and your squad are headed to Vegas, or another big city where you’ll be exploring night life, it’s time to break out the bodycons. If you’re a guest at the bachelorette party, leave the head to toe white ensembles for the bride-to-be opt and for a LBD. Add a little something extra to your look and choose a LBD with chic embellishments or sexy cut outs like our Pendulum Black Bodycon Dress or the Alluring Evening Black Beaded Bodycon Dress. If you’re the bride being celebrated, choose a LWD (little white dress) that suits your style and you’ll be comfortable in all night long. A sultry two-piece set with lace detailing like the Chic My Interest Ivory Lace Two-Piece Dress will be sure to turn heads.

A bachelorette party is the ultimate way to let the bride-to-be relax and let loose with her closest friends. What better place to kick back and relax than on a sandy beach? If you’re prepping for a beach-side bachelorette, be sure to pack plenty of bikinis, sandals, and vacation-worthy outfits. For the bride, pair a sexy white bikini with a cute crochet cover-up for a chic and put together look. As a guest, embrace the casual setting with a cute tropical print romper and accessorize with a summer tote to hold your beach towel and floatie!

A daytime bachelorette in a picturesque setting, such as wine tasting at a vineyard, calls for your most feminine and ladylike looks! Floral frocks, chic jumpsuits and midi dresses are all fantastic options for an afternoon sipping on rosé with your best babes. Our When You Smile White Midi Dress, featuring embroidered details, makes the perfect put together look for a bride-to-be! The drawstring waist cinches atop a midi skirt with ruffled hem, creating a flattering silhouette for any figure. Top off your look with the Bloom Cream Embroidered Clutch. Attending a bachelorette party geared around wine tasting? Opt for something that will keep you cool and comfortable all afternoon long, like a printed romper or floral skater dress with lace-up detailing.

FashionBride’s Dress Checklist – What to Wear for Every Occasion!

Being a bride-to-be is one of the most amazing experiences a girl can go through – and also one of the most stressful! From seating arrangement charts and minor decor details, to all the outfits you need to put together from engagement party to the big day, it can be a lot to keep track of! That’s why we’ve created this easy bride’s dress checklist to help you navigate through what you’ll need, and what type of frock is fitting for each occasion!

Engagement Photos – Engagement photo outfits tend to be on the more casual side, but it’s important to choose something that is simple and figure-flattering, yet polished. Prints aren’t recommend for they tend to distract from the beautiful romance your photographer is trying to capture! The right shoes, hair, and accessories can make a cute skater dress or simple LBD really pop! Check out our Like You Do Coral Pink DressHeaven’s Adore Light Blue Backless Dress, Home Before Daylight Red Dress, or Share the Love Black Dress for some fun options!

Engagement Party – The engagement party is the start of many celebrations, so kick it off with something fun and flirty with a chic party vibe! From a fit and flare silhouette to a lacy bodycon, you’ll be sure to look darling with cute numbers like our Flirting with Danger Cutout Ivory DressBB Dakota Princeton Ivory Lace Dress Angel Eyes White Lace Dress, or Cameo Daydreaming Black and Ivory Print Dress!

Bridal Shower – A sweet, semi-casual, and feminine frock is fitting for the bridal shower! Shorter lengths, flowy materials, and lacy numbers add a ladylike element! Opt for a figure-flattering skater silhouette like our Hot Off the Precious Ivory Dress, or Angelic Arrival Ivory Lace Dress, or our  Shifting Dears Ivory Long Sleeve Dress or Perfect Situation Ivory Long Sleeve Shift Dress for a sweet shift shape!

Rehearsal Dinner – With friends and family both in attendance you’ll need a dress that is both elegant, demure, and classic, yet totally chic! Choose a dress that has features like a high neck, long sleeves, or a modest midi-length, but that also brings a bombshell bodycon shape that shows off your figure! Our Top Notch Ivory Midi DressSleeve to Chance Ivory Long Sleeve DressAmong the Stars Ivory Lace Midi Dress, or We Built This Midi Ivory Midi Dress all fit the bill!

Reception (Or alternative wedding dress) – An extravagant wedding gown for pictures and the ceremony makes perfect sense,  but wearing something restricting, heavy, and uncomfortable for 6+ hours isn’t going to make for a very happy bride. Elegantly float from guest to guest by changing into something light, flowy, and ethereal, or dance the night away in a structured fit and flare silhouette! Try our Make Way for Wonderful Ivory Lace Maxi DressSnowy Meadow Crocheted Ivory Maxi DressKeepsake Divide Ivory Strapless Skater Dress, or Cameo Breaking Hearts Ivory Halter Dress.

Day-After Brunch – You and your hubby will want to catch a little extra snooze time (and cuddles) in the morning, but also get a tasty meal after such a big day! Brunch with champagne mimosas should definitely be on the agenda for the day-after!  Show off your just-wedded style in one of these romantic dresses: the Wrap-phrodisiac Ivory Dress, Pleased and Thank You Strapless Ivory DressParade Wave Ivory Dress, or Keepsake High Roads Ivory Lace Halter Dress
