With the craziness of wedding planning, shopping for your pre-wedding celebration attire often become a last-minute mad dash to find something festive. Don’t give your bridal shower look short shrift… often, that’s where the best memories are made! Whether the celebration is a girls-only canapes-and-bubbly soiree at a charming chateau, a swanky downtown hotel bar welcome party, or a rehearsal dinner at a top Houston restaurant, here are three fail-safe bridal shower and pre-wedding party outfit ideas for 2019.
1. Lovely in Lace
An embroidered dress is the essence of romance. This one – our current fave – works as a bridal shower dress, rehearsal dinner or bridesmaids’ luncheon dress, or even an after-party or reception dress. Pair this stunner with nude heels, small rose gold earrings and a pretty clutch for an ultra-feminine vibe.
2. Bold and Gold
If a high-end hotel, club or restaurant is the location for revelry, choose a sophisticated bridal shower look to wow the crowd. Dress it up with chic and sleek accessories, like these handmade earrings by Santa Monica designer Ariel Gordon or a sexy set of gold-toe heels by Tom Ford.
3. Haute in High Fashion
Choosing a piece by the same designer as your wedding dress is a great way to establish your overall wedding look. If your celebration is top-of-the-line, consider your bridal shower look or rehearsal dinner dress to be a “preview” of the wedding dress (or dresses!) to come. If you choose a dress with this much drama, pair it with dressy jewelry and festive yet tasteful accessories that flatter (but don’t fight) its unique design.
