The Best Bridal Shower Outfits for All Types of Brides
Shop The Story
What color a bride wears to a bridal shower is largely up to her. Yes, it’s traditional to wear white, but you don’t have to! That being said, you may want to sport a customary cream, ecru, ivory or pure white bridal shower outfit since this is your first opportunity to truly dress like a bride (unless you had an engagement party). We’ve rounded up the best dresses, skirts, tops, jumpsuits and rompers to consider for your shower attire. Whether you need a winter bridal shower outfit or one for spring, summer or fall, cute bridal shower outfits for all types of soon-to-be weds are just a scroll ahead.
Of course, shopping for a bridal shower outfit can feel almost as overwhelming as choosing your wedding gown. A good place to start is to think about what kind of shower you’re having. A casual luncheon in your mom’s backyard calls for a pretty sundress or even your favorite jeans with a feminine top if that’s what you’re feeling. If the celebration will be held in an event space in the evening, you might want to don a more formal dress or pantsuit. Seasonality plays a big role, too. Summer showers allow for easy, breezy short dresses or a romper, while a winter bridal shower requires pants or a long skirt with a cashmere sweater.
Read on for a selection of the best bridal shower outfits for brides in a variety of colors and styles.
