Being a bride-to-be is a fun season, full of exciting events and lots of sweet moments. It can be tough to know what events should take place, or when they are to happen on your timeline of bridal to-do's. With all this celebrating, you'll want to make sure you're ready to be showered in love and dressed in the best! We've rounded up six key bridal events that you will want to take note of as you are planning for your special day!

1. Engagement Party
What better way to celebrate the exciting news than with an engagement party? This event will be the first of many that you have as a couple. You and your future spouse can plan this celebration or family and friends can come together and plan for you. Whether you have an intimate gathering of just family and close friends or all those you know – it's sure to kick-off all the pre-wedding fun! Feel the freedom to roam about and offer hellos in our Jessica jumpsuit. You're sure to keep things simple and comfortable while also keeping it classic.
2. Bridal Shower
Showered in gifts? Don't mind if we do! There are many different options when it comes to your bridal shower. Usually, a close friend or group of friends will throw you a large bridal shower. Make sure and invite anyone you may know! Many people who aren't able to attend will typically still send a gift. Your MOH can also throw you a personal bridal shower – this usually includes your right-hand ladies in the wedding party. Opt for a lace textured and adorable look with the Heather for your bridal shower!
3. Bachelorette Party
Get ready for your last fling before the ring! Traditionally planned by your MOH, this fun little getaway allows you to take a break from all the wedding planning and get together with your best gals. Whether you're planning to go all out, or just get your nails done before the big day – you're sure to have the time of your life. Make sure and check out the Brittany for all your bach party needs!
4. Rehearsal Dinner
The rehearsal dinner is such a special time for both the couple and everyone involved in your wedding. It is a time to get together and relax before the busy wedding day ahead! The rehearsal dinner is typically paid for by the groom's family. Julia is the perfect rehearsal dinner dress, with its ruffled sleeves and slimming fit.
5. Bridal Brunch
Your wedding day will go by in the blink of an eye, so make sure you're spending some much-needed girl time before or on the day-of thanking the women in your life for all their support. The bridal brunch can be hosted by the mother of the bride, the maid of honor (on behalf of the bridesmaids), or the bride herself. Attendees are usually the bride and her attendants, along with the flower girls and mother of the bride and groom. Stay relaxed in our Liz – a cute little white dress with an elastic waistband for an adorable fitted look.
6. Newlywed Brunch
You're finally married! What better way to celebrate the wedding weekend than with a brunch right before the honeymoon sendoff? The parents of the bride and groom typically come together to host this event. This is a wonderful time for the newlyweds to mix and mingle with their guests one last time before heading out. Make sure you're looking chic in our Haley dress, with perfect pleats and lace bodice detail.
