I'm pretty sure it's not just me. I have to say it. I'm just not a fan of the traditional hen do accessories. The L plates, the feather boas, it's just not for me. Sorry guys! These days however, there are some amazingly cute, as well as fun accessories that are a classy and fun alternative to the traditional pieces. Here are some of my favourites -
I may have dropped serious hints about this headband. It's also available in silver glitter which is my preference... just in case anyone is reading who might be inclined to get me it. Maybe. It's so cute!
These are so much more adorable than the usual cheap sash! Available in a variety of different vintage prints, these are customisable and lovely.
How sweet are these? My Mum would totally love to have that Mother of the Bride badge, and to be able to get them with your wedding date and role on them is awesome.
Way better than a feather boa suspended on the wall, a glitter garland with whatever text you want on it! Everyone loves glitter.
If you and your dearest are tattooed babes why not add a temporary one for the day? They do all sorts of variations, and even stag do ones too.
I imagine this is the sort of thing Alabama Worley would have worn on her hen do if she had had one! It's trashy and magnificent fun. TuTu Factory have a huge array of different styles of fun veils with everything from flower crowns, to Minnie Mouse wears, to light up!
Sadly these aren't available in plus sizes, but I had to share them for the punk rock themes. They have Ramones inspired tees, ACDC, and more general alternative styles. So fun! I wish I could have one.
What are your thoughts on accessories for your hen do? Do you love the classic L plates? Or the feather boas? Or did you opt for totally different!
