What to Wear to a Bridal Shower – For Guests and Brides

There are so many exciting things about weddings, I don’t think I could list them all of if I tried. But one of the things I’m most looking forward to (other than actually marrying Jake) is my Bridal Shower!

Are you getting married or going to a Bridal shower soon? I have both a Maid of Honor (my best friend Courtney) and a Matron of Honor (my wonderful sister Julie) who are jointly planning my Bridal Shower probably as I write this. Since my entire bridal party is out of state, I’ll have to travel back home to Virginia for my shower. Hopefully yours is close to home!

The one thing my sister keeps asking is if I’ve picked a dress yet. It’s currently June and my shower isn’t until mid-August, but she’s a planner haha. But I also can’t decide what I want to wear!!

So, if you’re like me and are struggling with finding a dress, I’ve shared some options for you below. Or if you’re going to be attending a shower and you’re thinking, “what do I wear to this?!”, don’t worry, boo. I’ve got you covered, too! An added bonus? All of these dresses are currently under $100!!

Also, if you’re trying to figure out how to plan a Bridal Shower, check out this article from WeddingForward.com. It’s full of really helpful tips and tricks to help you along the way from who needs to plan to how to decorate and even has an awesome timeline and planner!! Super helpful, I definitely sent it over to my girls. They have plenty of other helpful wedding-related articles so check them out!

Also, an easy time saver on outfits: check with the host of the shower and see what their theme is. Typically Bridal Showers are dress-worthy occasions, but they might go more or less formal, so double checking will help. The best type of things to wear to a Bridal Shower are things you’d wear to church. Modest dresses and fun colors and prints are likely to fare well here. And avoid all white if you’re not the bride!

Check out this post of all white dresses that include some awesome options!

LOOKS FOR BRIDAL SHOWER GUESTS::

You’ll probably notice some of these dresses are featured in both sections in different colors. Because they’re great options for both! A lot of them would also be great wedding guest dresses as well! I love versatile pieces that work for more than one occasion.

Which dress is your favorite? Are you getting ready for a Bridal Shower? Let me know below!

XO,

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
