FashionBride’s Dress Checklist – What to Wear for Every Occasion!

Being a bride-to-be is one of the most amazing experiences a girl can go through – and also one of the most stressful! From seating arrangement charts and minor decor details, to all the outfits you need to put together from engagement party to the big day, it can be a lot to keep track of! That’s why we’ve created this easy bride’s dress checklist to help you navigate through what you’ll need, and what type of frock is fitting for each occasion!

Engagement Photos – Engagement photo outfits tend to be on the more casual side, but it’s important to choose something that is simple and figure-flattering, yet polished. Prints aren’t recommend for they tend to distract from the beautiful romance your photographer is trying to capture! The right shoes, hair, and accessories can make a cute skater dress or simple LBD really pop! Check out our Like You Do Coral Pink DressHeaven’s Adore Light Blue Backless Dress, Home Before Daylight Red Dress, or Share the Love Black Dress for some fun options!

Engagement Party – The engagement party is the start of many celebrations, so kick it off with something fun and flirty with a chic party vibe! From a fit and flare silhouette to a lacy bodycon, you’ll be sure to look darling with cute numbers like our Flirting with Danger Cutout Ivory DressBB Dakota Princeton Ivory Lace Dress Angel Eyes White Lace Dress, or Cameo Daydreaming Black and Ivory Print Dress!

Bridal Shower – A sweet, semi-casual, and feminine frock is fitting for the bridal shower! Shorter lengths, flowy materials, and lacy numbers add a ladylike element! Opt for a figure-flattering skater silhouette like our Hot Off the Precious Ivory Dress, or Angelic Arrival Ivory Lace Dress, or our  Shifting Dears Ivory Long Sleeve Dress or Perfect Situation Ivory Long Sleeve Shift Dress for a sweet shift shape!

Bachelorette Party – Something sultry, fun, and easy to dance in! After all, it’s going to be a wild night with the girls. Try a curve-hugging bodycon or a flirty peplum like our Renaissance Court Lace Ivory DressForeign Film Ivory DressShoot to Score Ivory Dress, or Charm and Lace Ivory Lace Dress, !

Rehearsal Dinner – With friends and family both in attendance you’ll need a dress that is both elegant, demure, and classic, yet totally chic! Choose a dress that has features like a high neck, long sleeves, or a modest midi-length, but that also brings a bombshell bodycon shape that shows off your figure! Our Top Notch Ivory Midi DressSleeve to Chance Ivory Long Sleeve DressAmong the Stars Ivory Lace Midi Dress, or We Built This Midi Ivory Midi Dress all fit the bill!

Reception (Or alternative wedding dress) – An extravagant wedding gown for pictures and the ceremony makes perfect sense,  but wearing something restricting, heavy, and uncomfortable for 6+ hours isn’t going to make for a very happy bride. Elegantly float from guest to guest by changing into something light, flowy, and ethereal, or dance the night away in a structured fit and flare silhouette! Try our Make Way for Wonderful Ivory Lace Maxi DressSnowy Meadow Crocheted Ivory Maxi DressKeepsake Divide Ivory Strapless Skater Dress, or Cameo Breaking Hearts Ivory Halter Dress.

Day-After Brunch – You and your hubby will want to catch a little extra snooze time (and cuddles) in the morning, but also get a tasty meal after such a big day! Brunch with champagne mimosas should definitely be on the agenda for the day-after!  Show off your just-wedded style in one of these romantic dresses: the Wrap-phrodisiac Ivory Dress, Pleased and Thank You Strapless Ivory DressParade Wave Ivory Dress, or Keepsake High Roads Ivory Lace Halter Dress
