Some of the best things about being engaged or having a bestie get engaged are all of the fun celebrations that come before the reception. The wedding dress is usually the first and most important decision but so many lovely brides and close friends of the brides forget about the other handful of fun events to plan for: Engagement Party, Bridal Shower, Bachelorette Party, and Rehearsal Dinner. Lots to think about, right? Worry not, dear friends, we have helpfully made a list of possibilities to make sure you look amazing!
Bridal showers are usually a daytime event, so dress accordingly. White isn’t a requirement, but is certainly festive. We also love a soft pastel for this occasion. A shift cut will allow you to move around and socialize at the shower, and for summer weddings, a sleeveless option is fitting. We love this Staci Snider dress with it's heavenly layered hi-lo tulip hem in sweet pale pinks and blocks of ivory.
We tell our brides-to-be and guests of the brides to take full advantage and drape in shades of cream, ecru, soft gold, shimmery silver and sweet pastels. Even don them when you are searching for your venue and shopping for your wedding gown. It helps to set your mind frame and makes you feel special.
Make every little errand for the big day special by dressing up for it! We promise you, you won't forget it!
When it's time for a party dress, we suggest a classy little wrap dress. This Waldrip NYC dress with festive embroidered details is perfect for mimosas with your best girl friends.
Stock up on white for that wedding weekend! Beautiful technical fabric adds refined texture to this exquisite fit shift dress, with a powerful structured neckline in front, tailored detail throughout, and rounded slit cap sleeves- the Karolina Zmarlak White Technical Cotton Rounded Shift satisfies minimalist but gives simplistic a big boost with all the expert design details. In such a stunning white, this dress is definitely bride-to-be material!
Something blue, courtesy of Ted Baker, comes in the form of this double sided clutch. With snake print on one side, and powder blue on the other, you can take it as a clutch or pull out and fasten the chain to wear on the shoulder.
Our best advice for the all-important rehearsal dinner outfit? Wear something that you can move in—it’s going to be a long night. And while obviously not a requirement, the bride traditionally wears white, or a shade of, for the rehearsal. Try frost blue with this sleeveless sheath from Karolina Zmarlak. The shimmering creases give the single hued dress texture, while the architecture in the tailoring make it an incredible fit.
Accessorize this dress with gunmetal for night, but re-wear it as a day dress with rose gold accessories. You'll be amazed at the versatility of this sheath!
You’re probably going to be happy but exhausted the day after your wedding. But if your family and friends are seeing you off for the well-deserved honeymoon, you might need to have one more stylish outfit prepared. Keep it comfortable, casual, and possibly travel-friendly. And definitely take a break from the white ;)
