What to Wear to a Bachelorette Party

Fashion plays a big role at bachelorette parties. With matching t-shirts, swimsuits, and sashes, trying to navigate what to wear can be intimidating. There are some code rules you should follow, but it’s also important to remember you’re celebrating the bride — or celebrating your last moments before being married if you’re the bride —  so it’s all in the name of fun! 


Here are some tips to consider and outfit inspirations for both brides and guests.

Bachelorette Party Outfit Tips

Whether you’re the guest of honor or a close friend, there are a few important tips to follow when it comes to the attire for a bachelorette party. Read up on the major style rules to keep in mind as you plan your outfits for a fun-filled weekend.

Consider Where You’re Going

Before searching for outfit inspirations, learn from the host and/or bride what kind of activities are planned. It’s also important to keep in mind that different bachelorette party cities have distinct fashion profiles, which may be an inspiration to choose them in the first place. Cowgirl boots in Nashville, sequin bodycon dresses for Vegas, and jumpsuits and sundresses for the Hamptons.

Comfort Above Everything

Let’s face it: things might get a little wild at bachelorette parties. You won’t want to break in a new pair of tall, strappy heels or a restrictive dress with dangerous cutouts at a bachelorette party. When it comes down to it, you’re celebrating a future marriage, the bride, and friendship, and the last things that you’ll want to deal with are blisters or wardrobe malfunctions.

Look & Feel Your Best

There will be plenty of photos taken throughout the trip, especially when it comes to platforms like Instagram. This is why you’ll want to not only choose outfits that make you look good, but that also make you feel good. How an outfit photographs is important to consider, so you’ll want outfits that make you feel as confident as ever.

What to Wear as the Bride

As the guest of honor, not only do you get to wear what you want, but you can ultimately dictate what everyone else wears the weekend of your party. Traditionally, many brides opt-in for wearing white the entire time. From rompers to mini dresses and trendy swimsuits, we recommend packing a few options of all white.

What to Wear as a Guest

As a guest of a bachelorette party, other than the tips we mentioned above, there are a few other major style “rules” to keep in mind:

  • Avoid white unless the bride states otherwise. There might be a day that all guests are encouraged to wear white while the bride wears a standout color, but unless that’s stated, we recommend skipping an all-white ensemble.
  • Match the other guests. If the host has provided a shirt ahead of time to bring everyone together under a theme, double-check that you include that in your suitcase. There could also be a day the bride requests everyone to wear a similar outfit, so coordinate with the other guests to find the best option.

When packing, don’t forget to include some staple jewelry pieces. When packing your jewelry, make sure you bring your travel jewelry case to keep them from getting tangled or damaged in transit.
