Today, we’re going to be looking at what to wear at a bachelorette party as a guest. You’ve been invited to a bachelorette party and you’ve likely been looking forward to this moment for weeks, or even months, now. And finding the perfect outfit for any event can be difficult – so what do you wear to a bachelorette party? Can you wear white? Are there do’s and don’ts? Let’s take a closer look.
What Is A Bachelorette Party?
A bachelorette party is one of the most exciting days for the bride (and her bridal party) before the wedding. It’s a time to come together and celebrate her last night out in singlehood. It’s a chance for the bride to let her hair down and have some fun with her nearest and dearest female friends (and sometimes family).
It usually takes place a few months prior to the wedding and can be anything from a weekend away in Vegas, to pizza and wine in my pajamas from the comfort of your home!
Dressing For The Occasion – Bachelorette Party Dress Code Ideas
Your outfit will depend entirely on the activity of your bachelorette party and whether there’s a dress code. If it’s a spa weekend, you don’t really want to be turning up in a black formal gown! And if it’s a fancy dress party, you don’t want to be turning up in a pair of jeans and heels!
So if there’s no specific dress code and you know what you’re doing – here are some suggestions to wear for each occasion.
Dinner and Dancing
A night out bachelorette party outfit is one of the easiest. If you’re going for a traditional bachelorette party of dinner and then hitting the nightclubs, the perfect outfit is that little black dress hidden away in your closet for special occasions. Your shoes and accessories for the outfit can be changed depending on where you’re going for your night out. But you can never go wrong with a pair of stiletto heels!
Spa days are the perfect way to relax and grab some me-time before the wedding. It’s always best to bring a swimming costume to a spa – you never know when you might end up in the hot tub! And for the daytime, some sweatpants and a t-shirt are completely fine. You can find some super cute Bride Squad matching tee and shorts from sites like Boohoo. They make for some great photos!
The outfits for the weekend away all depend on where you’re going! It’s always best to throw in a swimming costume and towel. And you can’t go wrong with a maxi dress or a cocktail dress for the evening – particularly if you’re going somewhere warm. Just don’t forget to bring a jacket – it can get chilly in the evenings!

Wine tasting is becoming increasingly popular for bachelorette parties. And it’s an event that is a lot more relaxed in terms of what to wear. A sundress and trainers are more than dressy enough! But if you want to go all out and dress up, there’s nothing stopping you. It just may be better to dress more casual…especially with all the wine you’ll be drinking!
THERMALS! If you’re going glamping, it may be cold so make sure you bring enough clothes to keep you warm and cozy. Jeans and jumpers are perfect for glamping. Comfortable is the keyword to focus on when you’re choosing your outfits for glamping!
The perks of having a stay-at-home bachelorette party is that it can be as chill as possible! This is the time to get personalized robes and pajamas. Take some super cute photos in your matching attire and play some fun games – all from the comfort of your home!
Bachelorette Party Attire Tips
Here are some tips and tricks you may want to stick to when choosing your outfit.
- Don’t Wear White. This should go without saying, but it’s always best to avoid white. White is the color that is strictly reserved for the bride, and unless she specifically states in the dress code that she wants you to wear white – steer clear! The bride may not even want to wear white for her bachelorette party, but it’s always best to avoid it, just in case.
- Follow the Dress Code. If there is a dress code, do follow it as closely as possible. It’s the bride’s special day and you don’t want to take any of the attention away from her by turning up in an outfit that isn’t appropriate or makes you stand out for the wrong reasons.
- Go for Comfort. Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. If there’s any part of the day you feel insecure about (such as wearing a bathing suit), talk to the bride or the maid of honor. You can easily adapt outfits to suit all body shapes and sizes, so be sure to include everyone.
- Make it Your Own. While most bachelorette parties will wear matching tees, sashes, etc., be sure to make your outfit your own. Add a belt, a hat, or a piece of statement jewelry. While it’s cute to be matching, you want to be able to tell you all apart!
I hope this article has helped to answer the question of what to wear at a bachelorette party as a guest. It really couldn’t be easier! You probably already have something tucked away in your closet to suit any occasion. As long as you’re sticking to any dress code given, and dressing appropriately for the activity – you can’t really go wrong with your outfit choice.
