Every bride knows that a white dress is a must for the rehearsal dinner and showers, but there are so many other fun events that fall during the season of engagement! From wedding dress shopping, to the bachelorette party, here’s a list of all of the occasions you didn’t know you needed a little white dress for:
Rehearsal Dinner: This is probably the biggest white dress event. The rehearsal dinner is a bride’s last night as a “miss” and it usually calls for a more formal dress or jumpsuit, depending on the wedding style. For the rehearsal dinner, we recommend the Julia. See how we styled the Julia for a rehearsal dinner in the video below!
Bridal and Couple’s Showers: Showers are such a fun time to spend with family and friends, and women who are important to you! For showers, brides-to-be usually wear a more casual, feminine dress or romper. For your bridal showers, we recommend the Liz.
Engagement Photos: We're big believers in wearing white for engagement photos (for all the reasons we recommend it, see that blog post here). This dress should match the personality of the bride and groom to be, but we recommend something super romantic. For your engagement photos, we love the Haley.
Engagement Party: For a lot of couples, this is their first major event as an engaged pair. This event is usually thrown by friends and family shortly after engagement and is such a fun way to start this season as a bride-to-be! This dress should be romantic and fun! For your engagement party, we recommend the Anderson.
Dress Shopping: Who wouldn’t want to wear a darling white dress to pick out THE white dress? This event usually involves girlfriends and female family members, and brides tend to lean a little more casual for this one! Brides-to-be will often be taking this dress on and off a lot, so it needs to be comfortable and flexible to fit your day. For dress shopping, we recommend the Jennifer.
Bridal brunch: The bridal brunch is a sweet event on the day of a wedding typically with a bride and her bridesmaids! If a bride has her wedding later in the evening, it’s a lovely way to start the big day! It’s usually a more intimate, feminine setting so your dress should fit that, too. For your bridal brunch, we recommend the Waverly.
Bachelorette Party: The bachelorette party is the last big event with girlfriends that’s usually full of all things fun and bridal! For their bachelorette party or weekend, most brides want to be the center of attention in a vision of fun, flirty, white pieces!! Rompers and minis are usually the way to go. For your bachelorette party, we recommend the Brittany.
Exit dress: Or the end of the night dress, is the big send off of the bride and groom on the way to their honeymoon! Lots of brides don’t want to mess up their gown en route, so they opt for a fun white dress to carry out their last hours as a bride! This dress should still look and feel very bridal. For your exit dress, we recommend the Loddy.
Honeymoon: The bride is still the bride until that plane gets back home!! Wearing white on a honeymoon is such a fun way to celebrate the recent marriage, and the start to a while new life as husband and wife! For the honeymoon, we love to see brides in something sexy, yet lovely. For your honeymoon, we recommend the Claire.
