Trend to Try: White Pre-Ceremony Clothing

Posted by

Wearing white clothing was customary and reserved in the past for the bride during pre-wedding events such as bridal showers and engagement parties. But, over the years traditions changed and brides began wearing more colorful dresses and clothing for these special occasions. Recently, white pre-wedding ceremony wardrobes have come back in a big way and in modern designs that complement brides-to-be of all ages. With so many meaningful events leading up to the wedding day, soon to be brides have plenty of occasions to highlight these stunning white dresses and white clothing ensembles during their anticipated pre-ceremony parties. To try this trend, here are our go to white wear looks:

Engagement Parties

Engagement parties are a time for both you and your honey to be gushed over and bask in this special moment.  It is a fun and exciting event, and your engagement party dress should reflect both elements. We love this playful lace flounce shift dress by Kate Spade to present your wedding engagement news to yours loved ones. A bold lip and accessories give this white engagement party dress a contemporary edge.

Bridal Shower

Whether you’re having a brunch in the heart of your hometown or a tea party with the gals, wearing a white bridal shower dress is essential. Since this is an all girls event, if you want, go extra feminine. We love the Beckha Dress by Tadashi Shoji for this pre-wedding special event.

Bachelorette Party

This is the last hoohrah with your besties as a single woman, so why not go out in style wearing a casual & flirty jumper for your bachelorette party. This cute white romper named Uzias from Sky helps you stay stylish and cool especially in warmer climates like Las Vegas destination bachelorette party get-aways. This stylish white bachelorette outfit is also perfect for packing on your honeymoon.

Rehearsal Dinner

The wedding rehearsal dinner is the final event before your wedding day, and once again, all your family, closest friends and bridal party from the bridesmaids to the groomsmen will attend. The jitters of anticipation will most likely be there, so choosing something you feel comfortable and stunning in at the same time is imperative. Choose a classic bride rehearsal dinner dress, so you don't outshine your wedding dress on the big day. We love our versatile Dessy Collection Bridesmaid Dress 2989 for the dinner occasion. Ivory is a great shade of white that blends well with this modern white pre-wedding clothes trend.

Rocking a white special occasion pre-wedding dress or one-piece in winter is just as lovely as in the heat of the summer. Take advantage of the extra perk of having all of the attention and focus on you for all your pre-ceremony events and do it in wow’ing white.

What to Wear: Country Wedding

Destination wedding invites don’t always mean an extended weekend getaway to a tropical island. Wedding venues with rustic vibes are gaining popularity not only the Midwest but also in metropolitan areas like Princeton, NJ and Catskill, NY on the east coast. The fall season is prime time for outdoor country weddings because they bring together the perfect combination [...]
