AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
This fun bachelorette idea can go one of two ways.
First, your beautiful bride-to-be steps out in a gorgeous outfit, more than ready for her pre-wedding shenanigans. Or second; she is draped in hilarious items that would make fashion gurus around the world quiver!
The result lies in your hands, party people, for this activity requires that you help dress the bride...
Learn how below!
HOW TO 'DRESS THE BRIDE'
This activity can be for the bridesmaids alone, or you can get the entire guest list involved. Whichever option you choose, first thing's first: you need to assign one item per person. For example:
If there is a large guest list/group of bridesmaids, you could break into small teams - working together to find some glorious outfit gold!
DRESSING THE BRIDE:
To make sure this outfit comes together perfectly, organisation is key. Set up an announcement (for party-goers eyes ONLY - this is to be kept hush, hush from the bride!), and let them know the plan:
Step 1: In the lead up to the event, everyone participating is assigned an item
Step 2: Each person (or team) purchases their item
Step 3: Each person works their magic and gets those items to the celebration without the bride-to-be seeing
Step 4: Head bridesmaid announces that you've got a little surprise. Guests' then proceed to 'dress' the bride with each item, one at a time!
Step 5: Many happy snaps are taken and many laughs are had
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY
ADD SOME RULES
Rather than lettings guests purchase what they please, set some rules. For example, items must be purchased from an op shop, items must be found around the home, items must be in a particular theme, or items must be in a particular colour.
As mentioned above, you may like to set a theme rule for your accessories. Some examples include:
As you can see, the options are quite endless when it comes to theming your accessories!
Handy hint: Surprising the bride-to-be with a fancy dress hen do? Ask her to turn up in a white dress (so that she feels comfortable - which is a must on her special day); then bring the theme to her outfit with an assortment of accessories (picked especially for her by each guest!).
