Invited to a Bridal Shower? Here’s What to Wear

Hooray, someone you know is getting married! There’s so much celebrating to do, even before the big day arrives. There’s the engagement party for the couple, the super fun bachelorette party for the bride, and of course, the all-important bridal shower. Whether you’re part of the team planning the bridal shower ideas or simply a guest, it’s an honor to be a part of the day. You’re helping the bride celebrate by literally showering her with gifts to start her new life. (Alex Drummond knows this better than anyone!)

But have you thought of what to wear to a bridal shower? You want to be festive yet respectful. You want to look your best but also not outshine the bride-to-be. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry. We’ve got some advice on what to wear so you look fabulous, feel comfortable, and of course, don’t upstage the bride. Think: cute floral dresses, comfortable heels, and looks that pull from your office and church wardrobes as well. Many of these ideas can even double as wedding guest dresses, especially for backyard weddings and day events. Just make sure you read the invites carefully to determine how formal the ceremony will be. These ideas will help take the pressure off what to wear, so you can focus on what’s really important: having fun with the bride!
