Top tips for what to wear on a hen do:
- Make sure your outfit will fit in with the activity
- If you are going out for brunch at 11 and likely to be out all day, don’t be afraid to get dressed up even if you are on the train at 9:30am!
- Don’t get too stressed about the weather. If it is raining you’ll probably be hopping in and out of taxis anyway
- Make sure no one in the party is wearing the same as you, especially the bride!!
- As a hen party guest, it might be best to avoid white in case the bride is planning on being the only one in white
