Here comes the bride. Many little girls dream of the day they’ll walk down the aisle to marry the love of their lives. A wedding is one of life’s most memorable moments. This theme has been the subject of many romcoms. My Best Friend’s Wedding, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, The Wedding Planner, Made of Honor, 27 Dresses, Bridesmaids…This list could go on. But you don’t have to wait until your wedding date to wear a white dress! The most important occasion for brides-to be leading up to the big day is the bridal shower. Your bridal shower.

We think of a wedding much like we think of our birthday — extra opportunities to celebrate well in advance! If a wedding is a party, then a bridal Shower is brunch with our friends. This pre-wedding event, traditionally held in the morning, is a chance to meet your best friends. UseWe can show off our Sunday best while being surrounded with our favorite gals. What could be better than that?

According to etiquette expert Diane Gottsman, there’s some flexibility when it comes to fashion at a bridal shower. “There’s not one particular dress code,” she told Brides. “But it’s always better to dress up than down.” That’s always our style strategy!

How we chose the best bridal shower dresses for brides:

The bridal shower is the perfect place to make a statement in a casual dress, since the wedding is your chance to shine in a long white gown. This list of bridal shower looks was so much fun!

We looked at style, comfort, price, and affordability in mind when choosing flattering frocks for women. Although we mostly stuck to shorter silhouettes (minis and midis), there really aren’t strict rules when it comes to your shower. You do you, girl!
