Pampering the Lovely Bride: Style Blog

little white dress

It’s that time of year where many women are planning and preparing for that moment every little girl dreams of. It’s WEDDING season! With so many events leading up to the big day you may wonder what to wear. You only get married once (Hopefully), so you want to make sure you feel absolutely amazing for every single event that’s going to take place leading up to your BIG day.

It’s customary for the bride to wear white or cream to events such as engagement parties, showers, and the rehearsal dinner. But how can you make these plain and simple colors have you feeling special and glamorous?

Engagement Party:

For engagement parties, most are held at fancy dinner locations and involve a cocktail hour. A mini lace dress is perfect for this. Pair this dress with a sparkly necklace and some fun shoes, and you will be sure to have the look of a “glowing bride”.  Avoid wearing big bracelets and jewelry that takes away from the ring on your left hand.

Bridal Shower:

For bridal showers, most are during the daylight hours. Girly, yet comfortable, day dresses are best. While sticking to the traditional bridal colors of white and cream, bridal showers are usually attended by women only, so channeling your inner girly side is fully acceptable. Want to wear pink? Go for it! Shoot for a dress that is comfortable sitting down, as well as standing up. Bridal showers are often held with lots of gift opening and posing for pictures. So, be sure to look cute, but go for comfort, too. Lace and Chiffon dresses with bows are perfect. Try a wrap dress! These are often a cotton or silk material and almost always come available to tie your own bow. Pair these dresses with neutral shoes that keep comfort in mind, too!

Rehearsal Dinner:

Rehearsal dinners are usually spent with all your closest family and your wedding party. Wear things that make you feel feminine and ready to walk down the aisle! Try taupe dresses and a bold lipstick, like red or burgundy.  If dinner is going to be outside, go for something ¾ sleeves or completely long sleeve to give you an elegant look. Fun, flirty skirts paired with a great heal is also perfect, especially with all the indulging that will be to come.  Wear whatever is going to make YOU feel special and beautiful. After all, it’s your day to be the belle of the ball.
