Movies & TV
This is a theme that you can manipulate to suit almost any fancy dress costume you want to wear. You can kick it old-school, get nostalgic and dress up as your favourite character from a movie or show that you remember from when you were small…or you can be ultra-modern and attend as the posh lot from Made in Chelsea or the slightly-less-posh lot from TOWIE! Why not dress your bride-to-be up as Sandy and the other hens as the Pink Ladies? Grab your best friend and become Daphne and Velma from Scooby Doo! You can all go as the same thing, or you can dress as different characters – the choice is yours, ladies. Be sure to pay attention to detail and get your costume spot on, because it’s no fun when you have to spend all night explaining to everyone who or what you actually are!
Around The World
This fancy dress theme is great. Not only does it inspire creativity, it allows for some real diversity, and it’s great for hens on a budget – perfect for some DIY costume making! Essentially, each hen picks a country or a specific area of the world and chooses their costume accordingly. You could be a Hawaiian hula dancer, a stereotypical beret-wearing, garlic-wielding French person, or a lederhosen-clad, beer-swilling Oktoberfest girl! An Egyptian lady, an American cheerleader… need we go on?
Thanks to The Great Gatsby (this seriously has nothing to do with Leonardo DiCaprio), we are all about the eras train and could not recommend this hen night fancy dress theme any more highly. The Eras theme is also a good way to ensure creativity and diversity in your hen costumes, as well as being a great option for those who don’t have too much to spend – you can always crack out some old gems from your closet! You can rock a glamorous flapper outfit (all sparkles and feathers), a cringe-tastic ‘90s outfit, a wacky neon ‘70s outfit, something chic from the ‘50s – the opportunities are endless. You could even be cheeky and crack out a cavewoman outfit here! Get creative and get snap-happy, because the pictures are going to look great.
