An outfit that's fun, festive and feminine is the ideal attire for bridesmaids at a bachelorette party.

Ideas for Bridesmaids' Attire for a Bachelorette Party

by Sara Cantu

Bachelorette parties are a rite of passage for brides-to-be and nothing makes the occasion more wonderful than an awesome group of bridesmaids. In addition to drinks, food and fun decorations, bachelorette party attire is an important aspect of the party. Bridesmaids are typically responsible for all aspects of the party, so their attire must be on point as well. Whether the theme of the party revolves around hilarious graphic T-shirts or all-black dresses, bridesmaids have to keep the party going by dressing in festive clothing.

Graphic T-shirts

Bachelorette parties are all about fun, so if the celebration takes place in a casual setting, get the girls together and plan matching personalized T-shirts. Choose a fun, inside joke, a hilarious nickname or a simple T-shirt with the word "bridesmaid" on it. Loud prints and bright colors will add to the festive vibe of the occasion.


Bachelorette parties are a great opportunity to get rowdy. Crazy but adorable tutus are a great choice to take the fun to the next level. Not only will this costume draw attention to your group, but you and the other ladies will feel youthful and fun. Pair tutus with tights to avoid a wardrobe malfunction if the garment is on the shorter side. Whether you pair this outfit with sky-high heels or sneakers, the point of this ensemble is to have fun and look silly while doing it.

All Black

When taking the party out on the town, dressing uniformly to help the bride shine is a thoughtful and adorable way to show you care. Opt for a sleek and chic color like black and ask your bride to dress in white or in a sparkly, embellished dress. Not only will she feel like all eyes are on her, but this will make for fabulous pictures, too. For a fun spin on this common bridesmaid attire idea, ask each bridesmaid to sport a brightly colored heel, adding a bit of pizazz to the ensemble.

Pretty in Pink

Bachelorette parties striving for fun femininity should look no further than an all-pink dress code. Ask your bridesmaids to dress in different shades of pale pink and have the bride dress in white or hot pink to make a statement. Fun and adorable accessories like tiaras, sashes and plastic gems will make for great party favors and add to this whimsical and light-hearted occasion your bride is sure to remember well past "I do."
