You found your dream dress, you booked the venue, and you ordered the flowers, but before you tie the knot, you have one thing left to do: celebrate your last days a single woman with your best girls! Whether you're the bride-to-be searching for the perfect bachelorette party outfit or the bridesmaids planning the bash, here are five essentials for that epic night out.

1. The Accessory
Have some fun and forgo standard bracelets in favor of shiny (temporary!) body art. These glam gold tattoos can be applied to look like stacked bangles or rings. Who knew fake tats could be so chic?

2. The Toasting Flutes
Your bachelorette party will be filled with tons of glass clinking, but do a special toast before heading out for the night with these pretty flutes. Even better? You can use them again on your wedding night!

3. The Outfit
Your bachelorette party is one of the only pre-wedding festivities that calls for something fun and sexy. While short dresses are common go-to looks for the celebration, we recommend rocking a romper instead. This way you won't be fidgeting with your hemline all night while you're on the dance floor.

4. The Gift
Thank your ladies for throwing you the best bachelorette party with a bottle of personalized nail polish. Pick your shade and add a custom name or note to the label for a thoughtful gift your favorite girls will love.

5. The Shoe
These black ankle-strap pumps are a smart choice for ladies' night out. Thanks to the shorter heel height, the kicks are comfortable, but the trendy buckle detail keep them super stylish.
