What to Wear to Every Wedding Event As the Bride

Will it be any shock to hear that one of my favorite parts about getting married was planning my outfits to wedding events? Ironic enough, it wasn’t easy. With limitless options, it was a bit tricky narrowing things down. So if you’re struggling to find that perfect outfit, or curious what you should wear to each event on your agenda, not to fret. Here’s what I suggest wearing during this beautiful time of life.

Engagement party

It’ll depend on your location, but seeing that most engagement parties are somewhere casual, stick with that vibe. You want to celebrate in fashion, but also want to comfortably hug every loved one that comes by to say congrats! White is obviously fine here, but it’s definitely not a rule. Instead of focusing on a color, pick something that you feel amazing in – no matter the shade. Floral is a feminine favorite here.

Bridal shower

I’m personally a fan of a sweet, delicate option for the bridal shower. After all, you’re celebrating with the women in your life so it’s fun to go all out girly for the occasion. Consider lace or a cut-out for added detail, and you know I never turn down a ruffle moment.

Bachelorette party

Let the fun begin! This will obviously be the most playful of the events, so go with it. Don’t feel constricted to white but do remember that this is one of the only times you can be the bride in white (vs. attending other people’s wedding events throughout your life). Instead of a bodycon dress or something that might feel dated, consider a two-piece set or something with a slit.

Rehearsal dinner

I went all out to my own rehearsal dinner because this kicks off the wedding weekend in a major way. Why not celebrate big?! This is the time to pull out that beautiful dress or chic jumpsuit. After all, it’s the start to the best weekend of your life!

And for the big day, you know what to do. Enjoy lovies and congratulations!

The white dress you’re wearing is really cute. I also like the other dresses that you chose for each event. There’s so many great choices I’m not sure which one is my favorite. I love the yellow dress and the white dress with the split in the engagement party section but then there’s also some others I love also. I’m not sure which to choose. And I understand what you mean by having so many to choose from when it comes to going to a wedding. For me, the deciding factor is how it looks on me. I can pile up my dressing room with dresses, but then I start looking at fit, style, material, price etc to narrow it down. And if I have a few people whose opinion I trust with me when I shop that will also determine which one based on reaction. If I get a nonchalant “it looks fine” or “it’s okay” or something similar it goes back without a moment’s hesitation. lol. Also, I like to point out that you are really rockin’ that hairstyle. It looks really good on you.


SO many right! it’s all about what you’re most comfortable in at the end of the day – because that’ll do so much more than any dress can. xx

I would wear this even if I wasn’t the bride haha! Definitely my dream dress <3


I just got engaged, so I’m looking forward to the white ruffled dresses!

The detail in this is just stunning!

Would have loved to see what you wore to each of these events. Pics would have been lovely.

I’ve already posted from all of my wedding events which were a few years ago. I linked out to a few in this article and you can search “wedding” on the site.

I’m loving bold florals for summer – something so flirty and feminine about them!
