Weddings 101: Bridal Shower Dresses

We seem to have wedding events (defined as bridal showers, bachelorette parties, engagement parties and the weddings themselves) penciled into our calendars almost every weekend through the end of August! Ok, maybe not *every* weekend, but we’re still very excited about dressing the part. In the spirit of wedding season, we decided to write a series of posts, each dedicated to a different wedding event. Here, we bring you some favorites for bridal showers.

Finding a bridal shower dress can be difficult: it depends on the weather, the time of year, type of bridal shower and naturally, whether you can wear these dresses again in another setting! Our advice: get something that is totally your style. If you’re not a bow girl day to day, then don’t get a dress with a bow because you’ll likely let it sink into the depths of your closet, never to be found until the next big closet cleaning. Don’t let the often “cutesy” facade of bridal showers fool you! We found some elegant options that could definitely double for a date night or brunch with friends.

    We are country casual here in rural PA – we welcome you whatever you are wearing! You’ll look fabulous, regardless. I used to have a dress in the same style as the scavenger hunt dress by modcloth! It might be in the attic…
