Here we are! It’s peak wedding season and that means bridal showers are in full effect! This is the moment where other than the wedding itself, you are celebrating the special bride-to-be. While excitement is overflowing it can also feel daunting to find the perfect bridal shower dress to wear. You want to look your best, but you can’t outshine the bride-to-be. Thoroughly read the invitation in case there’s information that is needed to know. Such as a location, registry, what to wear eg: color theme (if any), and date & time the event will occur.
One of my dearest friends is getting married soon and I’m so psyched to attend her bridal shower. As I read through the invitation it said wearing pink is a must. For those of us who know her closely, we weren’t surprised that this was her color choice.
Being invited to a bridal shower is an honor. It means you’re someone special to the bride-to-be. So of course, you want to show up looking your best. And looking your best means having the perfect dress for the event.
If you’re unsure what to wear to your bridal shower event, don’t fret. I’ve rounded up some beautiful dresses for being a special guest. And if a dress isn’t what you’re going for I’ve included a couple of pants for inspiration.
Beautiful Spring Bridal Shower Dress Ideas As A Guest
As I said, you must read the invitation thoroughly so no detail is missed. Such as the location and if you can scope out the location or do a quick Google search to get a feel for it. This will help determine which dress to pick for the bridal shower. For example, is it a high-end restaurant? Or a backyard barbecue? Equally important to note is the time of day the event will occur. And yes, most if not all of this information can be found on the invitation.
For example, the bridal shower I’m attending has specified all pink attire and the location is an upscale restaurant. Therefore, I know my outfit must look the part. Opting for something casual is a no.

What Do You Wear To A Bridal Shower In The Spring?
When attending a bridal shower it’s always fun to match your outfits not only with the theme but with the Season. If you’re attending a Spring bridal shower wearing floral patterns, flowy sundresses, pastel colors, and matching sets is always a fun way to go while still looking amazing! Lately, I’ve been loving high-low dresses! If the bridal shower is very casual you may want to check out this post for some casual Spring dress inspiration.
Can You Wear Jeans To A Bridal Shower?
You can definitely wear jeans to a bridal shower especially if it’s a cool Spring day. It’s all about styling. Pairing denim with a flowy blouse and some heels elevates the look to make it elegant enough for a bridal shower. Do not wear jeans that have holes or rips in them.
What NOT To Wear …
While some of the not to wear are obvious. Some guests will still have the audacity to show up in outfits that are a big no!
- As I have said, you can wear jeans. As long as they do not have any rips or holes in them. Unless it’s a super casual bridal shower such as a backyard barbeque otherwise ripped jeans are a no.
- Do not wear white/off-white! Even if the bride-to-be herself will not be wearing white, it is just wrong and quite honestly disrespectful to wear white on someone else’s day.
- And lastly, do not steal the bride-to-be’s thunder! Look your best but don’t wear anything too short, too revealing, and too flashy that can take away from the future bride.
As we conclude, I hope this post has been helpful and inspired your next outfit! And if you’re attending a bridal shower congrats and have fun!
