I always get asked by friends and family, “what should I wear?” Even though it usually depends on the occasion and location, my ‘nice’ go to outfits involve a skirt or dress with heels. If it is a more casual event, those that are outside, wedges are totally appropriate.

Bridal showers tend to be those in between parties where it isn’t formal, but not that casual. I tried wearing wedges with this outfit, but it didn’t look right so I put my most comfortable nude heels from Sole Society.

I wore this fun and pretty outfit last weekend for my soon to be sister-in-law’s bridal shower. I literally took these pictures at the party (talk about no shame!). I chose this outfit because 1) It was almost spring and couldn’t wait to wear my floral print skirt and 2) it is feminine and happy. I almost wore this skirt with a striped t-shirt because you know my love for floral and stripes, but I resisted since a t-shirt is too casual for a bridal shower.

Here are some tips for what to wear to a bridal shower:

  1. If it is spring or summer, wear any bright or printed dress. Warmer weather calls for fun and colorful patterns.
  2. Make sure your dress or skirt is about knee length. Bridal showers tend have games and you don’t want to be uncomfortable with a short dress. Plus there will be family around!
  3. If you wear a skirt, pair it with a blouse. Skirts can be a tad more casual than a dress so I always default to anything other than a t-shirt.
  4. I’m a big believer in heels and wedges for special occasions. If heels aren’t really your thing, wear nice flats.
  5. Don’t wear a white dress! The bride may want to wear a white dress for her shower and you don’t want to steal her spotlight. Let her be the one who stands out.

***By the way, I bought this skirt from J. Crew Factory before the pledge I made to not buy clothes at fast fashion stores.
