When it comes to bridal showers, there is a lot of variety. It might or might not have a theme and depending on the bride’s preferences, it might be more or less casual or somewhat formal. Whether is it is indoors or outdoors also affects what you wear.

Choosing the right fabric goes a long way. For more formal bridal showers, silk and satin are great options. They won’t add extra weight, and can be quite flattering. If there is a theme color, choose darker shades as they work best to create a slimmer look. knee length and maxi dresses are great picks, particularly with an A-line silhouette to create an elongated look while providing good coverage.
