Hen dos are arguably one of the most exciting parts of a wedding. It's you, all your gal pals, and lots of G&Ts. Plus, it's also the only part of the wedding that the bride doesn't have to meticulously plan; except, of course, when it comes to the hen do dress.
Choosing a hen do dress can be (nearly) as stressful as finding an actual wedding dress - you want something flattering, that'll help you stand out, but, after blowing all your budget on an open bar (whoops), you're also looking for something on the affordable side.
Traditionally, the bride-to-be will wear a white hen do dress in honour of the big day, and to help her stand out from the rest of her bridesmaids. When it comes to choosing a hen do dress style we say: anything goes. From simple spaghetti-strapped maxis to dazzling feather-trimmed minis, white hen do dresses come in many forms. If your plans are a surprise, make sure to check in with your friends to know what vibe to go for - the last thing you want is to be underdressed (or overdressed) for your own hen.
So, whether you're after something simple and elegant, or a little more cheeky, we've found the best white hen do dresses to enjoy your final night out as a single (according to the eyes of the law) lady. Shop our top picks below.
