A bachelorette party is the future bride's night to shine, but the bridesmaids shouldn't be far behind. Dressing the part is essential for a fabulous bachelorette party. Bridesmaids should coordinate and plan in advance what they intend to wear, especially if special items need to be ordered or made. Remember, bachelorette parties last until the wee hours of the morning, so comfort should be a consideration in planning.
Select a Color
Organize with the other bridesmaids to all wear the same color. Choose black to recognize the end of the bachelorette's single life. Make sure the bachelorette wears a different color such as white. Accessorize your black outfits with brightly colored feather boas or shoes. Another color combination to consider is red and white. Encourage the bachelorette to dress in red like the devil since she will be "up to no good" on her last night out. Coordinate with the bridesmaids to wear white, representing the angels in the bachelorette party.
Bachelorette Party T-shirts
Coordinate with other bridesmaids to wear special T-shirts for the bachelorette party. Consider making these T-shirts or purchasing custom shirts online. Select a T-shirt with a catchy phrase for the bride to wear such as, "Buy me a shot, I'm tying the knot." Bridesmaids can wear the same shirt such as, "Team Bride, Ann 2009" or "Bachelorette Support Crew, Vegas 2009." Think about customizing the shirts with each bridesmaid's name and her status, such as, "Katy Is Taken" or Amy Is Available, Bachelorette Blowout 2009." Color-coordinate these shirts based on taken or available status.
Dress according to the theme of the bachelorette party. Some bachelorette parties have a theme such as Ugly Bridesmaid Dress or Saturday Night Fever. Select an outfit to match the theme. Visit a thrift shop to find an ugly bridesmaid dress or vintage clothing for a 1970s bachelorette party. If you have an ugly bridesmaid dress, and the bride who chose it won't be in attendance, consider pulling it out of the closet and getting one more wear out of it.
