If you’re newly engaged, you’ve probably done at least a little thinking about saying yes to that white dress for the big day — but what about having the perfect wedding wardrobe for every other occasion leading up?
It’s easy to feel the pressure to have a new LWD (little white dress, for the uninitiated) for the engagement party to the honeymoon and every other pre-wedding event in between. But the costs of buying a whole wedding wardrobe can spiral out of control quickly — and seriously, what will you do with all those white pieces once you’ve tied the knot?
In case you haven’t guessed already, renting is the perfect way to have it all without the haul — so you can save the big bucks for your big-day dress or, you know, that premium open bar package you’ve been eyeing for the reception. And to make it even easier, we built the perfect wedding wardrobe of must-rent LWDs (and jumpsuits, chic separates and all-white-everything accessories) for every occasion.
Depending on where and when, engagement parties can run the gamut when it comes to how fancy you’ll want to get. For a more dressed-up affair, a satin jumpsuit with a plunging neckline or a white cocktail dress will do the trick. If the vibe is more casual chic, we love statement-making white separates that can easily be mixed and matched for the perfect debut of your wedding wardrobe.
Whether you’ve planned a weekend-long destination soirée or are planning to party closer to home, your bachelorette party is basically meant to be your best girl’s night out ever. This is when you’ll want to break out the sequins, the sexy cut-outs and the body-con dress. Heart-shaped sunglasses optional — but you know you want to.
Since most bridal showers tend to be daytime events, consider this the perfect opportunity for a chic white sundress with ultra-feminine lace or eyelet details. Alternatively, a fun romper or sculptural puff-sleeve dress are fashion-forward options that you’ll still feel comfortable rocking in front of grandma or your great aunt.
Think of your rehearsal dinner dress as the pregame to the white dress you’ll be putting on the following day. Feel free to go full-on fancy in something that steals the show. Cascading ruffles and allover lace? A floor-length halter jumpsuit? All fair game — this is your and your S.O.’s night after all!
And now for the best part of all — uninterrupted newlywed bliss. Pack your bags with all-white-everything vacay stapes. Lightweight sundresses and matching sets make for easy outfits — and if there were ever a time to rock a bra as a top, it’s now.
