Your bridal shower is one of the many opportunities you'll have to celebrate your nuptials with family and friends. And as you start to curate your wedding wardrobe, you'll need a standout bridal shower dress to make the day that much more fabulous. With so many bridal shower dresses to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down your search. But thankfully, there aren't many rules. First off, you don't have to solely wear white outfits, and choosing a bold color or print is a fun way to spice up your bridal capsule wardrobe. Plus, if you're itching to rock a trendy outfit, the bridal shower is a great place to show off your unique sense of style.

Below, we're breaking down everything to know about bridal shower dresses. In addition to sharing exactly what to wear to your bridal shower and where to buy outfits online, we've curated a roundup of the best bridal shower dresses that you can shop on the spot.

In this article:

What to Wear to Your Bridal Shower

Your bridal shower outfit should reflect your personal style rather than wedding fashion "rules" you think you should follow. After all, bridal fashion has now evolved to be much more personalized than ever before. "Recently, especially amid the pandemic, to-be-weds have been willing to experiment more with their bridal wardrobe," explains Ohad Seroya, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Retrofête. "From pantsuits to two-piece sets and even cutout minis, today's bride is anything but traditional."

Whether you opt for a strapless white jumpsuit or a fun and flirty sundress, your bridal shower outfit should feel like an extension of your personal style. Of course, we do recommend using your wedding shower theme and venue as helpful guides when considering what to wear to your bridal shower. (Think: light, breathable fabrics for outdoor affairs and glamorous silhouettes for upscale events). The time of day can also influence what you wear; a daytime bridal shower look can be more casual if that fits your style and venue, while an evening event should err on the formal side.

Accessories can easily elevate your bridal shower outfit, too. For example, you can upgrade your look with statement earrings, a bridal headband or pearl-embellished heels. You can also play with color if you'd rather wear something unexpected. Don't love bright white? Opt for a subtle print or a soft pastel, like blush or a floral. If pants are more your thing, go for a romper or tuxedo jumpsuit. Ultimately, your bridal shower outfit should make you feel like a polished version of yourself. "Don't be afraid to break the rulebook when it comes to your wedding wardrobe," recommends Seroya. "Your outfits should make you feel confident and radiant."

To give you a head start on your search, we've rounded up the best bridal shower dresses for brides in white, floral, pink and more. Then, if you still haven't found what you're looking for, keep scrolling for our go-to places to buy bridal shower dresses online.
