Wedding season is upon us with Spring only a month away, so this might mean you have a friend or family member’s bridal shower – or maybe even your own! – popping up on the social calendar to be prepared for.
When it comes to what to wear to a bridal shower, there are no hard and fast rules. Generally, something feminine and light. For guests it is best to avoid wearing white, and for the bride-to-be avoid anything dark or too heavy. This is a celebration of a new chapter, so you want your look to be bright and fresh. You can have an ode to the wedding by wearing a white dress, but choose a style that is fun and chic instead of something that is too formal; leave that for the wedding date.

The bridal shower outfit can almost be seen as a pre-show for the wedding dress itself, so it’s important to wear something that is ultra feminine, yet still flirty and fun. You want to make an impact, but not let the dress overpower and out-do the dress you choose to wear on the special day. Below we list some gorgeous choices to take inspiration from, or to rent for your bridal shower.
Wedding Shower Style for the Bride-to-Be:
Keep your style feminine and flirty with a soft toned dress like this Frilling Around Midi by Grace & Heart. The floral lace detail keeps it luxe, while the delicate shoulder straps maintains a demure appearance, perfect for a bridal shower. Style with loose soft waves and complementing makeup with rose gold accessories and matching blush patent pod purse to make the blush tones pop.
The only affair you will be having is one with this simply beautiful dress! The Floral Affair Full Midi dress is a gorgeous choice for the bride-to-be on her bridal shower.
