Bachelorette Fancy Dress Ideas


If you’re looking for a night with a bit of ‘Uptown funk’ then ladies you really need to dress for action. No, we’re not talking Louboutin shoes or a Victoria Beckham jeans, we’re talking costume party! Bachelorette fancy dress is a great way to get out and get the night started in real style… Even if it is slightly crazy style.

Bachelorette fancy dress is a great way to get the girls thinking creatively and making sure everyone really feels part of your party posse. So round up those cowgirls and pick a fantastic fancy dress theme for the big night.

Stars of the Silver Screen

This is a classic fancy dress idea that if done well can make for some amazing group photos! Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Lawrence or Angela Lansbury. Or go all-out and gender-hop to dress up as Marlon Brando in his prime (think A Streetcar Named Desire rather than The Godfather).

Just the Job

If the bride has an interesting or an unusual job, then this can be a fabulous opportunity to pay homage by dressing up accordingly. High-school teachers could find themselves surrounded by friends dressed as eleventh graders with teen attitude, nurses might end up with a party of gowned patients and a veterinarian could be flocked with hilarious costumed animals!

Save the Date

Really struggling for ideas? Look back to the bride’s birthday for inspiration! Again, this is a great way to tailor your fancy dress around the guest of honor and it can actually throw up some fabulous suggestions that you might not have thought of e.g. 80’s and 90’s wear.

It’s All About You

Has the bride got some unusual or interesting hobbies? Perhaps she’s got a favourite book, movie or TV show that you just know she’d love getting dressed up for. This is a great way to set a fancy dress theme that’ll get the guest of honor smiling and you’re all sure to have plenty of laughs as well. Let’s just hope she isn’t obsessed with The Walking Dead. Sure, Andrew Lincoln is cute (especially with his English accent!) but nobody wants to spend the night dressed as a zombie!

A is for…

Celebrate the bride-to-be’s special occasion by dressing up exclusively as things and people that begin with the same letter as the nearly-wed’s first name. For example, a Paula could result in bachelorettes dressing as a pussycat, a puppy, the colour purple, Pink Panther, Power Rangers… The possibilities really are endless. Unless her name begins with “Z” in which case you’re probably going to end up with a room full of zebras.

The Classics

If you’re still stuck for bachelorette party costume ideas you can always rely on the classics. Most of these costume themes are easy to create with old clothes in your closet and if you’re pushed for time then these bachelorette fancy dress ideas are common in most costume stores.
