With six weddings and multiple showers, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners to go to this year, I am getting an early start on shopping for all of these pre-wedding events. I am so excited for all the couples who are tying the knot this year (including the best man and maid of honor from our wedding but not to each other!) and even though I'll be wearing a bridesmaids dress for some of them, I know there will be several occasions where I'll find myself needing something to wear.
For showers and bridal brunches:
I love stripes and I feel like they're everywhere right now. I like them best in bright colors and varying widths so they don't look too rugby-ish. Pair them with a short hemline and you've pretty much got my Spring wardrobe right there.
For bachelorette parties:
Sparkly sequins and bright pops of color are perfect for the last fling before the ring. Pair these dresses with high heels, a textured clutch, and whatever fun bachelorette toys the hostesses provide.
For rehearsal dinners and receptions:
Sophisticated and polished but definitely not boring is the way to go for rehearsal dinners (pockets to hold tissues you'll need for any sentimental speeches are a plus) and receptions. I also recommend looking for dresses that have room to move when you're on the dancefloor!
