My hen is just weeks away and I’m having a nosey online and can’t find an outfit for it.

Has to be something that can take me from day to night.

The plan is to go for afternoon tea followed by cocktails, all happening at the same venue.

I would ideally like something white.

Any suggestions?

Sorry such a long link!

I’m 28, 5ft5, size 10.

Don’t know much about the venue as it’s somewhere I’ve never been to or know much about. My maid of honour is planning the hen and she’s keeping her cards pretty close to her chest. I had to squeeze the ‘afternoon tea and cocktails’ info out of her so I’d have at least some idea on what to wear.

@Palavah thanks for that link, that’s a really pretty dress smile sadly it’s not available in my size 😩

@Snailandthewhale thank you, love the jumpsuit, I actually quite like the belt 🙈

Im quite pear shaped so I like a wide leg trouser and things that are quite cinched at the waist, and I like a high neck to cover my lack of boobs lol

@Jesscarbqueen87 ha each to their own! It sounds like it'd be perfect and flatter your figure. Definitely more comfortable than a dress too

There are quite a few other white lace dress options -
