What to Wear to Your Hen Party

What to wear on your own hen do is one of the biggest dilemmas about getting married.

It may seem like a fairly simple task, but it completely stressed me out - so much so that I went and bought FOUR dresses (I need one for a cocktail party, one for cocktail making, one for karaoke and dinner, then one for clubbing), plus a load of outfits for the daytime too.

Your aim is to stand out and look glam without becoming tacky. You want to look sexy, but not "in your face". And, of course, you want to look better than ANYONE else there...

The easiest option is to team a stunning dress with some killer heels and accessories, which is why I've scoured the internet in search of some of our favourite finds. If you're extremely cool (I am most definitely not), you could always make like Kate Moss and don a fitted tux with some sexy skinnies.

Anyway, this post is for the lovely Elissa Miller, as well as all you ladies (most of you, I hope) who don't want inflatable willies pinned all over you. This is definitely not an L-Plates, school girl outfits and stockings kind of post...
