What to Wear to Your Bridal Shower If You’re the Bride

I have a ‘thing’ for bridal shower dresses, and this is certainly the season for them! If you’re the bride, you have so many choices for what to wear for your bridal shower. Since you’re the guest of honor, really anything you like goes– dresses, skirts, pants, rompers, and jumpsuits! In this spring season, I personally love some of the spring dresses we see that just look like they were picked by a Hollywood wardrobe department as the quintessential bridal shower dress. My weakness for lace, eyelet, pastels, pretty sundresses and florals, really is on display in this post,  but any dress or outfit that you feel is your look for your style of bridal shower will do!  The outfit that a bride chooses to wear to her bridal shower is a great opportunity to either set the stage for the wedding and echo the colors for the big day, or the opposite– wear some of the colors that you love but couldn’t use in your wedding, or use the opportunity pick up on the theme of your shower with a fun dress that really matches the mood. Pretty white dresses are a popular choice and certainly should be reserved for the brides to wear to their showers, there are also many colorful options.  Here are a few of my favorites for this season for the bride to wear!  *Links in italics are from affiliated sponsors.

This is the ‘Starflower Scalloped’ Dress by Eva Franco available at Anthropologie I love the scalloped edges, and the perfect balance of something blue, mixed with pretty white lace. This is a dream dress for a bride to wear to her shower!
