If you’re a 2022 bride or 2023 bride like me, you are probably in the process of figuring out your ultimate bachelorette party outfit ideas for your bachelorette party. I’m celebrating my bachelorette in the summer of 2023 and I want to be decked out in white — because when else can I go all-out in white? The looks I’m aiming for have to be a combination of sexy, stylist, comfortable and maybe a hint of cheesy (I’m talking about a bride veil which is totally a why not?).
Your bachelorette is one of the only times where you can totally be yourself and have lots of fun with no judgment — what happens at your bachelorette stays at your bachelorette. And while themes can be so cheesy and overdone, it does provide a bachelorette party attire guideline for everyone to dress accordingly. A Y2K bachelorette theme outfit would be very different than dressing for a Sex and the City theme.
What to wear to a bachelorette party?
Regardless of what the theme is, here are some basic rules that you should follow as a bride for your bachelorette party clothing ideas:
- Opt for white looks - It is the ONLY time where you can wear all out without anyone judging you.
- Dress for the location - Having a bachelorette in Nashville? Go for cowboy hats and fringe denim jackets to fit with the city's distinct fashion profile. A wine tasting bachelorette in the Napa Valleys would be best with a casual bachelorette party outfit, summer dress or shorts with a ruffled top.
- Wear comfortable shoes - Bachelorettes often have lots of dancing and partying, so comfortable shoes are a key. Luckily for you, Bella Belle shoes are known for our stunning design and extra padding for all-day comfort. Even ladies who don’t usually wear heels are comfortable in our high heels (yes you read that right). Shop our comfortable shoes.
Now onto bridesmaids, here are some basic bachelorette outfits for bridesmaids guidelines to follow:
- Avoid white - It’s the bride’s weekend and her chance to stand-out, and there’s so many other colors in the spectrum (you have plenty of options) So avoid wearing white unless the theme/dress code says you can do so.
- Follow the dress code or theme - Don’t be a party pooper and not follow the theme or dress code. It is your bride’s weekend so try not to make it about your wants and needs.
Now that you have an idea of the basic rules for your bachelorette party dress code ideas as a bride or bridesmaid, here are some fun and maybe even wild ideas for a night out bachelorette party outfits based on the trending bachelorette themes.
