Fancy Dress For Hen Parties Is At An All-Time High

Planning a hen night used to an easy job – pick a route for the pub crawl and fashion a comedy veil for the bride-to-be out of an old net curtain and L-plates. Now it’s increasingly complicated with business booming for hen and stag night activity planners and sales of special hen night fancy dress at an all time high.

Fancy dress costume hirers and sellers on the online party directory, report a surge in business over the last ten years as women increasingly choose to dress up in matching costumes with their friends on their hen nights.

Jon Stebbings, Sales and Marketing Director of Partyoffers says: “We have been conducting surveys of our directory members and they are telling us that costumes for hen nights have never been so fashionable. If you live in a city that’s popular for hen and stag parties you will have probably seen this for yourself.

“Some of the costumes are quite ‘saucy’, possibly more revealing than women would wear on a normal night out with their friends. Typically, ten to twenty matching outfits are ordered by the brides-to-be – a troop of women all dressed in schoolgirl outfits are bound to get attention wherever they go.”

The most popular hen night costumes are –
1 Bunny girls
2 Schoolgirls / St Tinians
3 Policewomen
4 Nuns
5 French maids
6 Devils
7 Nurses
8 Cowgirls / Wild West
9 Cavewomen
10 Air hostesses

The Partyoffers survey demonstrates tastes varying around the country with some themes more popular in some parts of the country than others.
Bunny girl costumes, as worn by Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones’ Diary and recently by Big Brother contestant Nikki, are most popular in the South-East, whereas Nurse outfits are the top choice in the North and Midlands. Cowgirl outfits are the favourites in Scotland.

Many women now choose to give a whole weekend over to their hen nights. The most popular places to celebrate in the UK are – Glasgow, Edinburgh, Nottingham, York, Manchester and Blackpool.

So far this trend hasn’t crossed over to stag nights. Although it’s popular for men to print off special t-shirts, fancy dress hasn’t taken off…yet.
