FashionFall Bridesmaid Dresses: Our Top Three Trends

Fall weddings are more popular than ever! With cooler temps and warmer colors and tones, it’s a perfect time to say, “I do.” We’re well versed on spring and summer wedding party attire, but what are this year’s best fall bridesmaid looks? We’ve put together a guide of some of our favorite new trends for the fall wedding season. From pretty patterns to re-wearable styles (we promise), if you pick any of these lovely looks, your bridesmaids will thank you! Read through and shop our picks below.

MOODY PATTERNS:

Mood Prints Bridesmaid Dresses

Want your bridal party to make a statement? Take the spring trend of light whimsical floral dresses and make it fall worthy by adding in some richer hues. While florals and patterns make for a more daring ensemble, they’re an easy way to create a bridesmaid look worth remembering. Patterns can also help unify the color palette you’ve chosen for the flowers and decorations, adding visual interest to the perfectly coordinated look you’ve put together. In simple silhouettes, these dresses are definitely wear-again worthy!

LACE:

Lace Bridesmaid Dresses

Feeling feminine? Lace has always been a bridal go-to, making it a perfect choice for a bridesmaid dress! Lace provides elegant, feminine detailing, while also being neutral enough to match the rest of the wedding party’s attire and the venue’s decor. We’re loving lace in cooler hues for the upcoming months for a more polished look.

DUSTY ROSE:

Dusty Rose Bridesmaid Dresses

Blush tones are one of the biggest trends we’ve seen this year for bridesmaid dresses, but the color can feel a little spring-y for a cooler weather event. To make blush tones a bit more fall wedding friendly, opt for a richer hue of blush…dusty rose! Dusty rose compliments moody fall florals, while also being flattering for all skin tones. Rich colors like burgundy, navy blue, emerald and deep amethyst are also great for a fall wedding party, but dusty rose is absolutely our fave!

FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Rehearsal Dinner

Your rehearsal dinner is the last major event before your big day and the official kick off to your wedding weekend! Depending on the size of the wedding, and the wishes of the bride and groom, the rehearsal dinner can be anything from a formal sit-down dinner to a casual outdoor get together. With so much going on leading up to your wedding day, it’s easy for your rehearsal dinner look to take a back seat, which is why we have put together another bridal style guide to make getting ready for the day before the big day easy as can be!

Destination Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Destination

Destination weddings are all about enjoying the beautiful location and taking in the scenery.  A rehearsal dinner for a destination wedding will likely be on the casual side, but be sure to embrace vacation vibes and keep the setting in mind when choosing your outfit. With crochet lace detailing and on-trend statement sleeves, our Love Letters Dress is the perfect option for the bride-to-be. This dress also features a breezy silhouette that will keep you cool and comfortable all night long. If you’re a guest who has made the trip to attend a destination wedding, have fun with your look and choose a vacation dress that you wouldn’t typically wear in your day-to-day life. Bright florals, embroidered details, and two-piece sets are all fabulous options.

Formal Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Formal

If you’ve chosen a formal setting for your rehearsal dinner, you’ll want your attire to be equally elevated. For the bride, choose an elegant midi dress that radiates class. Our Wishful Wanderings White Lace Midi Dress combines delicate lace with satin ribbon ties for the ultimate bridal look. If you’re attending a friend’s rehearsal dinner in a formal setting, we suggest opting for a more modest silhouette, such as a midi or maxi dress, or even a jumpsuit! Our beautiful Love Interest Black Floral Print Maxi Dress or a chic jumpsuit like our Let Me Entertain You Black Satin Jumpsuit are both fantastic options for a formal event.

Casual Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Casual

A casual setting rehearsal dinner is the perfect time for your friends and family to mingle and get to know each other! If you’re having a backyard BBQ or have chosen to host a dinner at a casual restaurant, be sure that your outfit matches the tone of the evening. If you’re the bride, a darling sundress with off-the-shoulder details is the perfect mix of casual with a hint of sexiness. Attending a casual rehearsal dinner as a guest? Go for a cute and playful look with our Seahaven Denim Blue Print Skort Dress, or add some drama with a deep V neckline with our Faithfull the Brand Nova Terra Cotta Floral Print Dress.

Congrats! You made it to the day before the wedding in perfect style! Be sure to share your rehearsal dinner looks with #lovelulus and let us know in the comments which look you love the most!

A bachelorette party is the ultimate way to let the bride-to-be relax and let loose with her closest friends. What better place to kick back and relax than on a sandy beach? If you’re prepping for a beach-side bachelorette, be sure to pack plenty of bikinis, sandals, and vacation-worthy outfits. For the bride, pair a sexy white bikini with a cute crochet cover-up for a chic and put together look. As a guest, embrace the casual setting with a cute tropical print romper and accessorize with a summer tote to hold your beach towel and floatie!

Bachelorette Party - Beach

A daytime bachelorette in a picturesque setting, such as wine tasting at a vineyard, calls for your most feminine and ladylike looks! Floral frocks, chic jumpsuits and midi dresses are all fantastic options for an afternoon sipping on rosé with your best babes. Our When You Smile White Midi Dress, featuring embroidered details, makes the perfect put together look for a bride-to-be!

Crop tops are an effortless essential to take your look from day to night.  These belly-baring tops are perfect to pair with your favorite cut offs or bikini bottoms for a stroll along the beach to catch some sun, but then transition into a nighttime look when paired with a longer hemline that only shows a hint of skin for a dressier style.

We especially like a pair of patterned pants as a comfortable alternative to wearing a dress on more active vacations.

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!
