7. Headbands and Hats
You may choose to have names on them, but to make them even more attractive, choose ones with flashing willies, lights, or fluffy bits. You may also choose a theme for the hens party, in which case hats can be easily customised to suit. For example, they can be similar or different from each. Some people may want to wear devil horns, while others may have cat ears. It all depends on what the girls or the organizer want to achieve.
Sashes are another highly popular accessory for hen parties. Also, there is a wide selection to choose from.
The advantage is that you can have sashes customized with wording, colours, patterns and the type or material. Best of all they can have names on them, such as the ‘bride’, ‘bride’s mother’, ‘maid-of-honour’ ‘bridesmaid’ or even the name of the event such as ‘Michelle’s Hen Party’.
9. Hen Masks
Depending on the theme of the party, these masks can be gorgeous, funny, or scary. For example, if you are hosting a comedy themed hens party, you can go for the funny masks, and if it is horror-themed such as “The Walking Dead’ you should go for the scary ones.
You can also opt to wear masks of different celebrities just to be totally different to the norm.
10. Tiaras, Party Crowns and Veils
Tiaras are a great accessory that can be worn by just the bride or the whole hens party. Just make sure that the bride stands out from her girlfriends, mother, and sisters during the party.
One way to help distinguish the bride from the hens is to give the bride a different coloured tiara to everyone else, such as pink. Or give the bride something more unique like a party crown or better yet a veil.
What Accessories Will You Use?
A hens party should be fun and with different accessories you can be assured everyone will have an awesome time.
To make your upcoming hens party a little fancy and exciting, choose your accessories wisely. There are a wide range of them to buy from either online stores or your local party shop.
As you plan on the accessories to buy, whether it’s veils, sashes, or cocktail charms, keep the best interests of everyone in mind, especially the bride-to-be. This way you can create magical memories for this once in a lifetime event.
