You've RSVP'd yes to the wedding, but that comes later. In the meantime, you have plenty of pre-wedding events to attend. First up? The bridal shower. Bridal showers are meant to be fun, but the dress code really depends on the bride. Did the bride forget to include the dress code on the invitation? Don't worry! We've got you covered with outfit ideas and a few things to consider when choosing your outfit.
Always think of the bride. It’s her day! White is not always right! It seems obvious, but it must be said: steer clear of wearing white or anything close to white. The traditional hue is reserved for the bride-to-be. Save that little white dress for another non-wedding related event.
Keep the venue in mind. Location, location, location! Where will you be celebrating with the bride? For instance, will you be enjoying a delicious brunch at a restaurant or opening presents at her parents'. Another factor to consider? Will the bridal shower be indoors or outdoors? This will play a huge factor in what you choose to wear. Wearing layers is a safe bet, especially if you'll be going back and forth. Take all of this into consideration and dress accordingly.
Have fun with your style. Show a little personality! A bridal shower is the perfect opportunity to have a little fun with what you're wearing. Florals are popular right now for good reason—they're always fresh. Go with a light, sleeveless floral dress during the warmer months. Pastel dresses are another warm-weather option.
The wedding day is here. Are the nuptials happening in the fall or winter? Go classic, yet don't count florals out! Dark florals are a good choice for cold-weather events, too.
Don’t go too trendy and overboard. The main focus should be on the bride. Avoid anything that can be too short, overly revealing or over the top. When in doubt, remember that less is more.
Cheers to the new couple!
