The Perfect White Dresses & Outfits Every Bride-to-Be Needs for Every Event Leading Up to the Wedding
If you have a wedding coming up, you just need one white bride dress, right? Ha! Good one. Every bride-to-be knows that a huge part of the fun of being engaged is all of the events leading up to the wedding, like engagement parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners. All during which you’re expected to shine in yet another chic all-white outfit or little white dress. And these days, with instagram and social media, you wouldn’t be caught dead in the same dress or jumpsuit twice, so what the heck should you wear to all of these different events?
Wearing a white dress is a great way to stand out at all your different wedding events. Ever since I got engaged, I scoured all of my favorite clothing brands for the absolute best bridal outfit ideas for all of my wedding events, and I have been shocked at how hard it is to find the perfect white outfits for each event! So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite white dresses for brides for every wedding-related event you have coming up, from the bridal shower to the bachelorette party, so you can stand out and glow while celebrating your engagement!!!
All the best white outfits for a bride
Bridal shower dresses
What should you wear as the bride for a bridal shower? Your bridal shower is likely to be during the daytime, so a pretty and classy white daytime dress is best. These are some of my favorite picks for the bride to wear to her bridal shower.

This set is an adorable option if you don’t want to go full white!
This dress would be so gorgeous for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner for a fall or winter bride!
Bachelorette party dresses
How to dress for your bachelorette party totally depends where your bachelorette party is (if you need ideas, check out my post on The Best Bachelorette Party Destinations here), but chances are you’re going to want a mix of some show-stopping nighttime looks, and some great white onepieces and bikinis. Here are my favorite bachelorette party looks for the bride.

Cute bride dresses for engagement photos
I love a bold color like pink or red for an engagement photo because it really POPS, but if you’re looking for a subtler look, you can’t go wrong with white or light blue, or a light floral. This goes-with-any-backdrop white dress and stunning flowy blue dress for an engagement photoshoot would be absolutely perfect.
Engagement party dresses
The engagement party is likely much more casual than the wedding, and they’re usually day-to-night parties, meaning you’ll need a great casual-yet-elegant dress to take the party right through sunset. Here are some of my favorite looks for brides-to-be for their engagement party.
