Forget “the big day,” a wedding is really a whole string of celebrations–from the bridal shower to the reception and beyond. As the guest, planning outfits for every pre- and post-wedding event can be tricky (and not to mention time-consuming). Below, we’re showing you what to wear to every invite that comes your way, so that you can handle wedding season like a total pro. 

What to Wear to the Bridal Shower

Celebrate the bride-to-be in a feminine look with refined details. Lace is having a major fashion moment right now, and there’s a style to suit every taste. Embrace the classic fabric by exploring different patterns—from floral to geometric. 

What to Wear to the Bachelorette Party

Whether you’re club-hopping or just kicking back, you need an outfit that’s ready for a night of celebrating. Put your token LBD back in your closet–a fitted sheath in a brilliant pop of color will be sure to make a memorable impression.

What to Wear to the Rehearsal Dinner 

This season is all about the knee-length midi. A silky texture or graphic print brings the look into special occasion territory. Whether a moody floral, a graphic stripe, you simply can’t go wrong with this versatile cut. 

What to Wear to the Reception

Photogenic, check. Dance-floor ready, check. Nothing says “life-of-the-party” quite like a fun, asymmetrical frock. Keep the emphasis on the fun silhouette and opt for sleek metallic accessories to bring the whole look together.

What to Wear to the Post-Wedding Brunch

For an effortless brunch style, slouchy denim is your friend. Pair it with a lightweight knit and oversized cardigan to make traveling back home a breeze. Make the look more polished with a neutral bag and minimalist accents.
