A Grease themed hen do is the perfect excuse to get dressed up in beautiful 1950's costumes. See if you can find a big yellow circle skirt, white blouse and canvas pumps for the bride to wear to give her that preppy Sandy look. And don't forget the net petticoats - the more the better! Or you could even get her a Rydel High cheerleaders outfit - easily found on fancy dress sites.
And for the hens, check out eBay or Amazon for cheap pink ladies jackets which are great to wear for the whole hen celebration. You may even be able to get them personalised with the names of the hens. Then go for circle skirts or pedal pushers for that fun 1950's look. Accessories like snazzy specs, bobby socks and neck scarves will also be great for the photos and can easily be found in places like Primark.
Footwear is great as flat pumps or lace ups were the trend in the 50's (at least for high school teens) and they're comfy and easy to dance in.
Hair 1950's hair is also nice and easy because you can just do a high ponytail tied up with a little scarf. If you're up for it, you could get wigs for the bridesmaids and dress them as Frenchie, Rizzo, Jan & Marty! We did one party where the organiser had allocated characters from Grease to all of the hens so we had everyone from the Pink Ladies to Patti Simcock, the diner waitress and Miss McGee. It was fantastic!
