Wedding Shower Outfit Inspiration for the Bride to Be

Earlier this spring, I wrote a blog post about what to wear as a guest to a wedding, but what do you wear to bridal showers if you’re the bride or a guest? When looking for the perfect outfit there are a few things to consider. First, what time is the event? Commonly, the earlier the shower the more formal it is. Next, where is the bridal shower? Is it at a house or restaurant? If the shower is at a restaurant, dress according to the restaurant. Lastly, consider the bride and her personality when planning your outfit.

My friend Ashley is getting married this fall and I was invited to two of her showers. The first one being at her family member’s house in the afternoon. Ashley wore a white dress with a sheer overlay and comfortable wedges. She also did a great job accessorizing, choosing to wear stacked bracelets and a gold necklace. As a guest, I wore a simple pale pink maxi dress with gold sandals.

The second shower was in the morning at a friend’s condo downtown. Ashley wore a more formal white quilted dress with a black heel. The dress had an embellished neckline, so no necklace was needed. She wore the same stacked bracelets as the previous shower. As a guest at this shower, I choose to wear a fit and flair purple jacquard dress with wedges.

Both showers were lovely and filled with fashion-forward friends. I can’t wait to pick out a new outfit to wear to Ashley’s wedding!

  1. I wore a white dress with wedges and a simple necklace to one of my showers because it was informal at an aunt’s house. I wore a patterned maxi dress to my shower thrown by my friends because we all decided to wear fun dresses! Nice tips!! 🙂
