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,

Dani

  • When it comes to investment pieces, do you have any rules you set before you get something? This cardigan was definitely an investment but it’s one of my favorites and by far the softest thing I own. I do have a few rules for getting an investment piece, though! 
1. I have to be able to style at least 10 ways with things ALREADY in my closet. I can’t get something else in order to make it work. 
2. I have to be able to wear it multiple times a month. Something I know I’ll use over and over. 
3. It has to be comfortable. If I’m gonna spend a pretty penny on it, it needs to not only look good but FEEL good. I hate uncomfortable clothing! 
4. It shouldn’t be an impulse buy. I like to think about my investment pieces for a bit before I buy them. Even though I love affordable style, I invest in good quality things I know I’ll wear often so they last!

Do you have any rules when it comes to buying something you consider an investment piece? Tell me in the comments!
  • What are your thoughts on the off the shoulder trend?? I love it 🥰 right now I’m fantasizing about spring because we are getting more snow this weekend!! .

This is one of my favorite date night outfits 😍 I rounded up a bunch of OTS sweaters all under $30 and linked them in the @liketoknow.it app! Click the link in my profile and click “shop my instagram” to see them all!! http://liketk.it/2zmCg #liketkit
  • As I’ve continued to clean things out after my binge of Tidying Up on @Netflix, I’m really enjoying getting rid of so much. .
The whole idea is to declutter and let go of things that don’t #sparkjoy for us. This dress is one of those things for me. While it was great to wear for Easter last year, it just doesn’t bring me joy anymore so it’s one of the things I’ll be getting rid of! .
I’m going to be selling a bunch of my stuff on danithom.com as well as my other typical ways (join my email list on my blog to get my free e-book on how to sell your clothes for cash!). Swipe to see the full dress (and a baby Oliver!) 💙 And DM me if you’re interested in buying it before I post it!

  • Lazy days are the best days ❤️ I love being snuggled up with my babies. Finn is SO NEEDY and is basically attached to one of us at all times.
.
Side note, if you haven’t watched Tiding Up with Marie Kondo on @netflix yet, WATCH IT. We binged all of it last night and cleaned our house while doing it lol it’s so motivating. I’m gonna finish today and tomorrow and I can’t wait!
