What to Wear to a Bridal Shower

This past weekend I attended  my sweet friend Cynthia’s bridal shower. On the way to her mother’s home I stopped and picked up the delicious Georgetown Mini Cupcakes that were ordered for the event. If you live near one, I highly suggest you treat yourself and taste a few!

As I was getting dressed for the bridal shower I kept a few classic rules in mind :

What to Wear to a Bridal ShowerRULE 1 :

Only the Bride Wears White — I know white is some people’s color {I love wearing white} but for any bridal type events, reserve that color for the bride, after all it is traditional!

RULE 2 :

Yours Shoes and Dress {outfit} Should Balance Each Other — If you plan to wear a fun print {like I did} balance it out with plain wedges/flats. If you choose to wear a bold pair of shoes, let them be the focal point with a simple outfit.

RULE 3:

Wear Simple Jewelry — This is the Bride’s day and you want to keep your look simplistic. If you chose a simple outfit and shoe pairing, then a statement necklace is perfectly acceptable, as long as the look remains balanced.

RULE 4:

Wear Delicate Feminine Colors {optional-base this on the brides personality} — If pink and purple are not your thing, that is is okay {I am not a huge fan of pink} turquoise and mint are great alternatives.

Have you heard of the purse game? If you have been to a bridal shower, you have probably been rummaging through your purse in hopes to win a prize. If you haven’t heard of it, bing it and be cautious of switching out your purse!
