The point is, a shower--baby or bridal--is a gift, and sometimes you know when it's happening, and sometimes it's a surprise. If you do know when your bridal shower will be, do you have an outfit picked out? Personally, I don't love the spotlight, but on the few occasions where I knew a lot of attention would be on me at a party, I had fun choosing what to wear because at showers, it's so much fun to be dressed up with other women and appreciate their style choices. Sparkly shoes, pretty nails, or a blowout would generally be lost on my husband (like, he might notice and admire those kind of things, but doesn't think they're necessary and hence just doesn't particularly care about them), but sharing in all of that with girls is special. Not the entire point of the day, of course, but definitely special.
So here's an easy bridal shower style formula you can adapt to your style: a white outfit, a little something that sparkles, and something bright or shiny to make a statement. Inspiration here and links below:
CLASSIC LOOK / peplum dress / scallop heels (they have blue soles with a heart--hello wedding shoes!) / MAC lipstick in Pink NoveauYour turn. Which of these looks would you choose, and do you have a favorite way to style a pre-wedding outfit?
ROMANTIC LOOK / off-the-shoulder dress / Becca rose gold highlighter / geode earrings
MINIMALIST LOOK / romper / Mrs. necklace / slides
P.S. If you're getting your makeup professionally done for your wedding day, the day of your bridal shower is a perfect time to do a test run!
