The bachelorette is arguably one of the absolute best parts of being a bride. Getting to party with your closest friends in a little white dress, whether you’re virtual or in Vegas, is a memory that will last a lifetime. The cherry on top? Wearing the kind of dress that makes you feel like a million dollars and will have your girls snapping photos of you for the ‘gram all night long.
Typically for the last fling before the ring, brides-to-be wear short, flirty, little white dresses. But a bachelorette party dress isn't defined by high hemlines and low necklines. And it certainly doesn't have to be white!
The possibilities are endless in terms of style when it comes to picking out your bachelorette dress. It can be a preview of what you may wear on the big day, or it can also have an entirely different flair than your bridal gown, giving room to explore with unique styles. Getting married in a long-sleeve full lace gown? Try a silk mini dress for your bachelorette! Your bachelorette dress is the perfect time to opt for shorter hems, daring silhouettes, and bold details. No matter how you’re celebrating, there’s a dress for every kind of bash on this list.
Read on for the best bachelorette party dresses you'll be so excited to wear.
What to Look For in a Bachelorette Party Dress
Whether you're planning to dance the night away in a sparkly mini dress or looking to keep it casual in a sundress at brunch, your bachelorette party is the perfect opportunity to let loose and have fun with your look. What's more, there are no rules when it comes to picking out your bachelorette ensemble. Looking for something utterly statement-making? Go for party-ready sequin mini dresses with plunging necklines or opt for maxi dresses featuring bold patterns and colors. More of a classic bride-to-be? There are plenty of crisp shirt dresses, simple slips, and minimalist midi dresses that are sure to appeal to your traditional tastes. And who says you have to wear white? Dresses and jumpsuits in bright colors and fun prints always feel fitting for any type of bachelorette party.
