How To Have a Non Tacky Hen Party

We've rounded up our favourite non-tacky hen party accessories because it's out with plastic willies and in with rose gold, shabby chic and pops of sophistication

Sick of the 'L' plates, willy tiaras and usual tacky 'brides team' insignia?

Want to deck your bride-to-be and the bride's tribe out is something a little less tacky and a lot more unique, memorable and beautiful instead?

Non-tacky hen parties are on the rise, and we couldn't be happier. Let's face it, most of us are over the usual tackiness that dominates hen weekends, especially when it comes to willy straws and the fluoro pink 'L' plates.

Say goodbye to plastic willies and say hello to dainty hen party sashes, hen party t-shirts, tote bags and other cute accessories.

We've rounded up our favourite non-tacky hen party accessories so your or your besties hen weekend remains tack-free and classy! 

Hen Party Sashes - But the non-tacky kind!

While bride-to-be sashes and hen party sashes are certainly not new to hen weekends, dainty, rose gold and stylish sparkly ones are.

And they are the latest rage in bride's tribe garb and we couldn't be happier to see this hen party classic upgraded with a touch of sophistication.

The Hen Planner is one of our favourite stores that sell classy bride-to-be and hen party sashes as well as other great brides tribe accessories and garments.

Along with Party Parlour's gorgeous hen party sashes, they also have some pink team bride wristbands, which are ideal if you don't want a big sash clashing with your outfit! 

Classy and creative hen party badges

Just because hen party accessories are growing up and becoming less tacky does not mean you have to go without all the usual fun of making a statement and ensuring everyone knows you're on your hen weekend.

Hen PArty Badges are a great way to make a subtle statement without being over-the-top, tacky or ruin your outfit with the clash of colours the usual hen party accessories cause.

Etsy is our go to when it comes to hen party badges, the range and prices are unbeatable. From floral to sparkly, gold and even tribal to everything else in between, Etsy had hen party badges in spades! 

We are also a huge fan of pink and gold rosettes or badges. Once again, it's a spin on a hen party classic but minus all the usual tackiness, which this grown-up hen party does not want or need. These rosettes and badges can be found at The Hen Planner.

Hen Party tote bags

Leave the clutches and handbags at home and head out with a personalised tote on your hen party.

Whether you are heading to the beach on a relaxing hen weekend or hitting up the nightlife on a city escape, these totes are great for all occasions and they make a lovely memento after it's all over as well.

Better yet, they look great in photos too.

Wedding in a Teacup has great hen party supplies including these great totes, which we love for being pretty and practical. 

Get a Hen Party Tattoo

Don't worry, these are of the temporary variety.

Made popular by festival goers and hippies, and now hen parties too, these little gold tattoos are the perfect accessories to compliment any hen party outfit.

Whether you are relaxing by the pool, sightseeing or heading out for a night on the town, these gold tattoos are the perfect-subtle sign to let everyone know you are the bride-to-be and part of the bride's tribe.

Ginger Ray is a one stop shop for hen weekend tattoos and other accessories. You'll also find them on The Hen Planner with hen party sashes and badges to match.
