It’s almost time for the wedding and the excitement is building! It’s so much fun getting all decked out in fancy dress costumes for a hens party! There are several great hens party costumes and hens party themes to ponder but before those choices are considered, it might be interesting to learn when and how hens parties got started.
The original hens party was modeled after the idea of a stag/bachelor’s party. Both are actually centuries old. The purpose is to give the bride-to-be a dinner celebration, surrounded by all her female friends and family. The modern hens party probably started during the 60s when the hype surrounding the sexual revolution was strong. Women wanted equality with men. “What’s fair for the goose is fair for the gander” so they say. The hens party concept wasn’t too popular in the 60s but grew more so in the mid-80s.
Now for the beginning part of the fun: there are several hens party costumes, hens party themes, and fancy dress costumes to entice those who are attending the upcoming nuptials!
