Stylish Spring Bridal Shower Dresses
The wedding high season is almost upon us, which means that it’s time to find that perfect dress for your bridal shower. Shopping for a bridal shower dress can be a task as daunting as finding the perfect wedding dress. Though it’s certainly not as important as your wedding gown, your bridal shower dress will be worn in the presence of all your family and friends, and many pictures will undoubtedly be taken – putting the pressure on to look your best.
Have Fun with Color
Luckily, with Spring fashions hitting the stores, now is the perfect time to find a pretty, feminine bridal shower dress. Keep your eyes peeled for bridal shower dress criteria like floral prints, ruffles, and flirty details. Also, try to focus on brighter colors – a bridal shower is not the best occasion to wear a somber black or brown ensemble. A dress with some color will look great in photos, and suits the celebration much better.
Narrow Your Dress Search
Once you’re ready to find the perfect bridal shower dress, narrow your search by first checking out designers known for their dresses like Rebecca Taylor, Nanette Lepore and Diane von Furstenberg. Searching online for the perfect shower dress is a smart time-saving strategy, since you can peruse many different designers and stores quickly without combing through racks. Shopping for a dress online also gives you a better idea of how the dress hangs on a person; some dresses that look odd on a department store hanger might fit and flatter beautifully once they are on the body.
Keep It Sweet – But Not Short
Avoid overly tight, clingy dresses for a bridal shower – you’ll likely be sitting down all day and opening gifts, so thigh-high hems will only leave you feeling uncomfortable and exposed. Keep in mind that guests will be taking pictures while seated, which, if you are seated in a circle to open presents, makes an embarassing panty shot hard to avoid in a super short dress. Keep the hem to knee-length or slightly below the knee to avoid any not-so-Kodak moments.
