Wedding season brings more than the weddings. You’ll have numerous events to attend, from bridal showers to rehearsal dinners. Of course, you should also expect the fun night of a bachelorette party during this busy and exciting season. It might even be in your honor!
Each occasion comes with its own questions of what to wear. When it’s time for a bachelorette party, it’s important to choose the right outfit for the event, keeping in mind the time of day, venue and other details. Some modern bachelorette parties even come with dress codes and guidelines to follow.
Before you opt for one of your favorite going out dresses or cute party outfits, follow these ideas for choosing the perfect look for your upcoming bachelorette party, whether you’re the bride-to-be or one of the girls.
For the Bride-to-Be
As the bride-to-be, this night is all about you, so you’ll want to look your best. Since this is your night, you’ll be the one who can look the most glamorous out of your group of girls, just like on your wedding day. Nonetheless, keep a few things in mind.
Unlike your girls, you can go for a white party dress, which is the conventional style for a bride-to-be on her bachelorette night. Nonetheless, if white isn’t your style, feel free to break tradition and go for a color! Don’t forget to keep in mind the venue and time of day of your event, while a short or tight white dress may be an appropriate choice for a night out, it may look out of place at a daytime event.
Here are some great bachelorette party dresses for the bride to wear during daytime and nighttime events:
Whether the girls are taking you to brunch or wine tasting at a vineyard, you’ll want to stand out from the crowd since you are the bride-to-be. For a more casual look, choose beautifully tailored clothing, such as our vintage striped lace sheath dress. Or if you want to go for a dressier look, choose an elegant white cocktail dress, like floral beaded cocktail dress that will certainly catch everyone’s eye.
Vintage Striped Lace Sheath Dress
For your night on the town, it’s time to get dressed up! Depending on your own personal style, there are a variety of white bachelorette party dresses you can choose from. If you want a sweet and simple look, choose this fitted white lace dress. If you’re feeling more daring, try a dazzling sheath dress like a short sequined dress or go for a rocking white one shoulder jumpsuit that has you ready for anything.

For the Girls
As a bridesmaid or other guest at the bride-to-be’s special night, your main rule is to not wear white unless otherwise requested by the bride. You’ll want to follow any other guidelines or suggestions of the bride or her maid/matron of honor as well.
Aside from the golden rule of avoiding white dresses, the sky is virtually the limit when it comes to what you can wear as the guest at a bachelorette party. Choose a style in any color or pattern you like, just keep in mind that this is the bride’s special day. As an attendant at a bachelorette party, you may want to check in to see if the other guests are planning to wear coordinating colors. A popular tradition among brides who wear white is to outfit her bridesmaids in little black dresses.
For your daytime look, try a more casual look such as a short sleeve black jumpsuit. Or go for a short dress that can fit daytime activities, such as a blush sleeveless sheath dress with floral embroidery.

For your nighttime festivities, choose something fun and sparkling like our sequin beaded cocktail dress. You could also go for a more dramatic look with a black mock neck sequin dress or a black high low dress with a hemline that's cut high in the front and drapes to the floor in the back.
Party Dress Accessories
No bachelorette party outfit is complete without stylish shoes and accessories. Dress up your daytime outfit with a pair of wedges with lace up straps and embellish your evening attire with beaded strap heels. Choose clutch purses with pretty details like metallic or beaded touches. Try the sookie roll flap clutch for a handbag that will match almost anything and add embellishment through its sparkling stones.
Add a little sparkle to your look with jewelry like earrings, a necklace, rings or a bracelet. A ring like this oval-cut crystal ring can really dress up your outfit and elevate your style.
If your dress is very ornate with sequins, beading or other details, forgo bold accessories for subtle details like neutral heels and a solid clutch.
Summing it All Up
You really can’t go wrong when the bride-to-be wears white and the rest of the party wears little black dresses. Nonetheless, feel free to switch it up and have fun as long as everyone in the bridal party is on the same page. Make sure you plan your looks for other wedding events like bridal showers as well. Short yet elegant cocktail dresses make the perfect choice for showers, while you might want to wear more formal wear for rehearsal dinners and engagement parties.
