FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Bridal Shower

Wedding season is in full swing, which means you’re bound to have a slew of bridal-related events in your future. We’re here to break down what to wear to a bridal shower, whether you’re the bride-to-be being celebrated or attending as a guest!

As the bride-to-be, remember this day is about you! When it comes to picking out what to wear, the key is to look chic and polished, but still feel comfortable for mingling, playing games and toasting to your future. We would suggest a beautiful maxi with lace details for an ethereal feel, or for something a little more casual and on-trend, try our Lucy Love Barefoot Bride White Embroidered Midi Dress. If you’re looking for something that isn’t plain white, a floral dress such as our Bloom On Ivory Floral Print Maxi Dress or our Take You There Ivory Floral Print Maxi Dress are also great options!

Bridal Shower - What to Wear as a Bride

As a guest of anything wedding related, it’s always a smart idea to steer clear of white. Opt for something with a classic silhouette and stick to pretty pastels and fresh florals to avoid upstaging the bride. Things such as location and season will also play into your outfit choice. If the shower is being held at say, a fancy venue, of course you’ll want to dress accordingly! Below we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite looks perfect for your next bridal shower!

BeautyBoho Braid Tutorial

Boho Braid

When the temperatures rise, there is nothing better than a chic boho braid to keep cool! This season, we are even more excited to incorporate one of our favorite 2017 trends into our boho braids, hair rings! These chic hair accessories shimmer and shine in the summer sun and we just had to try the look for ourselves. Check out our braid tutorial in the steps below to create your own boho braid using celestial hair rings!

Step 1 & 2

1) Start with hair down and loose in a center part. Hair can be straight, wavy or curly depending on your preference. Part hair 1″ back from the hairline along the center part and then diagonally back towards the top of the ear. Clip hair that is not being braided from underneath so it is out of the way.
2) Dutch braid (basically an inside out French braid) hair away from the center part, down towards the top of the ear. Finish braiding to the ends of the hair and secure with a clear elastic.

Boho Braid

Step 3 & 4

3) Remove the clip from underneath the hair and use bobby pins to secure the braid over the hair toward the back of the head.
4) Pull out some wispy pieces along the hairline and loosen the braid for a boho look. Slightly bend star rings to open and place along the braid, tightening to close the rings. Finish with hairspray or surf spray as necessary.
