Bride-to-be, Nichole, writes us with this question:
“Hi Emmaline, I’m looking for reception or bridal shower dresses with bows (or a bow) on it. I love this trend and I saw some on Pinterest but cannot find where to buy them. Do you know where to get bow wedding dresses that work well for bridal showers or receptions? Thanks for your help!”
Ah, great question, Nichole! I like this style, too. :) On it!
A bow wedding dress (or bridal shower outfit) offers that interesting and unexpected element, something we plan to see more of throughout this year – and into next. There’s just something about ribbons and bows on dresses that brides can’t get enough of!
To help you find the perfect outfit, I did some digging and found the cutest bow back wedding dresses for you to wear to either event. Many of these work perfectly as bridal shower, reception, or even rehearsal dresses. I limited the search to shorter or midi-length dresses (although admittedly, there’s a maxi wedding dress with bow on it I couldn’t resist sharing, so it’s there, too).
I even found a jumpsuit in case you haven’t considered it as an option. It has wildly-popular reviews (and it’s super adorable), so maybe it will work?
Anyway, hope it helps! It may be tough to choose. ;) Let’s get started.
