What to Wear to Your Bridal Shower

There’s no other time in your life when you’ll be the center of attention wearing a white dress, so embrace it!

Chic and modern! Buy yours here.
This beautiful dress features all over lace in a knee-length with delicate beading at the waist. Buy yours here.

This beautiful dress has a stretch material built in so it is form fitting; it’s a stylish mix of crochet, applique, and guipure lace! Buy yours here.
This dress is technically under the casual wedding dresses section, so you could absolutely wear this as your wedding dress (one bride mentioned she wore it for a rustic ceremony — that sounds amazing!) But it also works well as a bridal shower dress, especially for a bride with boho style. Buy yours here.
This dress is perfect for late-summer and fall weddings because it has those trendy 3/4 lace sleeves for a little bit of warmth, but a short length to stay more on the casual side. I love the all-over lace on this one; in the description, it also says this bodice is designed in a way to conceal undergarment straps — even with the white lace. Genius! Buy yours here.
