The wedding is a few weeks away and while the rest of the bridal party adds the sequins to the shiny disco ball to be used on the dance floor of the wedding night, as maid of honour you know that your best friend’s hen night has to have the best of all things retro.
In fact you are already picturing bright lights, polka dots, peace signs as party décor before the after party where you dance the night away and the hen night invitations to be the highlight of the evening with pink and black polka dots or even candy stripes in shades of green. One glance at the hen night invitations would give the girls coming over a clear indication of what dress code is expected from them, without having to read all the details! Given below are a few ideas you could incorporate to your 70s-80s inspired hen night invitations and celebrations.
Shiny Disco Balls
No retro party is complete without a shiny disco ball and since it’s an all-girls night, it has to be pink! Ideas for the hen party invitations could include bright pink borders and silhouettes of girls having a good time and in fact this could even be replicated in real life!
It’s all about the girls tonight and what better way to make this statement heard if not for flowers and lots of it. Ideas for the celebrations could include each invitee being given a flower upon arrival or having them bring a flower each for the bride to make her own bouquet! The hen party invitations itself could have lace outlined flowers set against candy stripes in shades of green. If green isn’t the brides favourite, that could be replaced accordingly as well.
Retro is all about bright colours and while all of you girls will be donned in the brightest and sunniest of hues that evening, the hen night invitations too could include bright colours of blue, green, teal or even sensual shades of black and red put together.
Saving the best for last, a retro theme will be incomplete without polka dots and why not take this one step further by having polka dots set against a pink background as opposed to a traditional red on the hen night invitations? The girls can also be asked to wear any accessory or clothing item with polka dots to complete the theme.
