Shop The Story
Planning to follow your beautiful wedding with a day-after brunch? Sure, you’ll feel a little groggy, but you’ll also be brimming over with excitement because you’re finally married! And, possibly headed to your honeymoon in a few hours. Plus, a next-day brunch is a super-fun opportunity to process every aspect of your wedding with your besties. While you certainly needn’t overthink your next-day brunch outfit, since you’ve already cleared the biggest hurdle, which is picking out your wedding dress, this meal is still all about you. You’ll want to feel pretty and polished as you continue to celebrate your wedding weekend with eggs and mimosas, even if you are a tad hungover! It’s a good idea to select a brunch outfit, if for no other reason than you won’t have to worry about what to wear on your first official outing as a wife. To make your decision even easier, we have compiled a list of the best next-day brunch outfit for any kind of bride. From Boho to conservative, preppy to beachy and more casual attire, here’s what to wear the morning after you say “I do.”
How to Select a Next-Day Brunch Outfit
As you peruse this roundup of stylish brunch outfits for the bride, you’ll first want to consider the venue where the meal is to be hosted. A seaside brunch of bagels and fruit will certainly call for a different look than a fancy affair being held in a private event room at a luxury hotel. Is this an intimate brunch including just close family members and the bridal party, in which case you can keep things casual? Or will everyone invited to the wedding be in attendance? Seasonality is another consideration, as is whether you’ll be munching on muffins and nibbling on bacon in, or outdoors. Just remember, technically, this is still “your day,” so wear what you feel good in! If your wedding dress was heavy, or featured a somewhat-constrictive bodice, perhaps a flowy top and cute and comfy jeans are just what the doctor ordered so you can truly relax, as you enjoy chatting about every highlight of your special night.
What to Consider When Shopping for a Next-Day Brunch Outfit
OK, so you just spent a ton of money on your wedding and/or honeymoon. So don’t worry if your budget is spread pretty thin at this point. You can still score a cute brunch outfit without spending a ton of money. That being said, some options on our roundup cost around $300, but keep in mind that these outfits can totally be reworn, like on your honeymoon, and in the future for other parties and get-togethers.
It’s traditional to wear white to a brunch following your wedding, but you certainly don’t have to. While we feature several dresses, skirts and suits in white, ivory and cream, if you’ve had enough of those hues, we were sure to include colorful options as well.
Our roundup is organized according to style. Say you’re a preppy bride; there’s an outfit for that! Likewise, if you consider your style to be more fashion-forward, we have your back. From casual to dressy, there is sure to be a cute outfit that suits your style on our list.
Will you be jetting off to your honeymoon straight from the brunch? In that case, look for an outfit that can easily transition from the meal, to the tarmac.
