You just got engaged; congrats! Now what? Whether you’re still fan-girling over your ring or ready to dive into the band vs DJ debate, wardrobe is likely the last thing on your mind. Sure, you’ve dreamed about your wedding gown since the sixth grade, but we’re talking bachelorettes and brunches and engagement bashes (oh my!). To keep you stress-free and onto the next, we’ve rounded up bridal attire for every potential “I do” event, from a dapper engagement shoot to honeymoon relaxation. The road to happily ever after is looking oh-so chic.
The perfect prelude to wedding-day photos, your engagement shoot should mirror your personal style to reflect the best version of you (and your fiancée!) in front of the camera. Depending on locale, looks can vary; a breezy shift dress is fitting for outdoor, while a dainty two piece or chiffon gown complements a formal setting.
Relish in the fab feels of being a fiancée with your closest family and friends. A celebratory night calls for an outfit that follows suit; a curve-hugging cocktail dress with luxe detailing sets the mood for marriage.
Let the festivities begin! The bachelorette party is the time to let loose with your girlfriends-and your style. Whether you plan to hit up the Vegas strip or dine in your favorite restaurant, go for a flirty finish in a mini that shows some skin via short hemlines, lace-up backs, or illusion cutouts.
Moms, aunts, grandmas; the female force is out in full at the bridal shower! Embody all things feminine by sticking to soft detailing and classy silhouettes, like lace, peeks of illusion, and simple shapes.
Kick off wedding weekend in cocktail attire; a short, structured dress reads just right for dinner with the bridal party. Pretty lace and a hints of beading say semi-formal but not overdressed.
Nothing says “It’s your time to shine” like a wedding dress that’s authentically you. Delicate beading, drama-filled silhouettes, an oversize rose; allow your personal style to peek through with details that say it all, whether you celebrate in a ballroom or at the beach.
Bask in wedded bliss at the final get-together with your bridal party. The calm after the storm, a post-wedding brunch calls for laid-back fashion; a casual sundress or lacy romper feels just right for day.
Ahh, relaxation. Much-needed alone time with your love calls for easy style; easy-breezy sundresses are cool and comfortable for a warm-weather getaway.
