I must admit, when my husband and I moved to a sleepy river town in Ireland, we did not expect to land smack dab in the middle of bachelorette party central! Turns out said picturesque river town is the top bachelorette party (or hens as they refer to them) destination capital of Ireland.
When Friday afternoon rolls around, our little town of Carrick-on-Shannon turns into a mini Las Vegas complete with gaggles of girls in matching outfits parading around town. Swarms of men and women are dressed to impress in all sorts of themes, ready to have one last fling before the ring night (or in their case weekend) out on the town.
It got me thinking about all the fun and fashionable items you can buy for a bachelorette evening out or weekend away. I went to my usual sources to create my list of top bachelorette party decor and accessories to buy for your big night out.
1) Tulle Skirt
Nothing is more fun than wearing a puffy tulle skirt and twirling on the dance floor! If there was ever a time to twirl, your bachelorette party is definitely it. Go ahead – channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw to nail this look.
2) Nautical Themed Bachelorette Shirts
Ahoy there matey! Move over “all friends wear black and bride wears white motifs” … we can do better than that! Get all the ladies to dress up in a nautical sailor theme look.
Last week while walking home over the bridge in Carrick-on-Shannon I saw the local river boat tour loading up for the night with well-dressed hens. They had a completely coordinated nautical look going – sailor hats, navy/white outfits, and heels! Next time I will be sure to have my camera ready.
If you don’t have the time (or money) to spend on getting decked out with nautical gear, these shirts are a good alternative.
3) ‘He popped the question‘ Shirt
Statement shirt are all the rage … still … and there are a tons of different shirts out there to choose from. I love how fun these are!
4) Country Bachelorette Party Tank Tops
by Tumble Root
Do we have a group of cowgirls out there going to the rodeo? These shirt will be perfect for you. Some ripped jeans, cowboy boots (that you can also wear to the wedding), and a cute cowgirl hat to complete the ensemble!
5) Bachelorette Party Tiara

Some brides-to-be aren’t into wearing a veil for the big night out. Give her the option of wearing this super cute sparkly crown instead!
6) Booty Veils
Are you having a weekend-in-Vegas-by-the-pool style bachelorette party? Might I suggest getting a cute booty veil to prance around poolside with drink in hand?
7) Black & Gold Bride Tribe Sunglasses
While sitting pool side in Vegas or Cabo, don’t forget matching Bride Tribe shades.
8) Neon Team Bride Hats
by Prepare wear
If sunglasses are not your thing, than matching neon hats are the perfect beach bum day look.
9) Bride Tribe Temporary Tattoos
These gold flash tattoos are a great idea for bachelorette party favors, or party gifts. They make for very fun photo ops and work amazingly at a festival inspired celebration.
10) Team Bride Pins
Is your group of ladies starting out the weekend by going for afternoon tea? Check out these fun pins for all to wear.
11) Bride to Be Sash
Of course, the quintessential bride-to-be sash says it all. Classic, elegant, and hopefully torn to shreds by the end of your fun evening.
12) Bachelorette Banner
Banners are always a fun decoration – no matter if you’re only hosting a bachelorette party at home or decorating a hotel room.
13) Engagement Ring Balloon
Who said balloons were only for birthdays? I love the look of these engagement ring balloons. They’re awesome to decorate the restaurant with or even the hotel room for a weekend away.
14) Gold Glitter “Last Fling” Cake Topper
If you are celebrating with a cake, then a cake topper is a MUST!
15) Bachelorette Party Cupcake Toppers
Maybe instead of a cake, you’re going with smaller cupcakes. Check out these cute lingerie cupcake toppers.
16) Bridesmaid Wine Glasses
For a weekend away, everyone should have their own personalized stemless wine glass.
17) Bachelorette Party Game Pack
You simply can’t have a bachelorette party without games … especially a scavenger hunt!
18) Bachelorette Party Photo Prop
Every moment of the night will be photo-op worthy. Have some silly fun with some extra props on hand!
19) Printable Bridal Shower Photo Booth Props
Do you have a group of Instagram fanatics on your hands? Then make sure to be camera ready with your own photo booth props.
Hope all you brides-to-be out there have an amazing time at your bachelorette party!
