Bridal Shower Attire

Picking out what to wear for a bridal shower is sometimes a challenge for the hostess and guest of honor, as well as the guests that will be attending. Bridal showers can in fact range from very casual wear to fully formal attire. If you are unsure about what to wear to a bridal shower, then here are some unique and interesting tips about proper bridal shower attire.

Both your and your guest’s attire can be based around the theme. For instance, if it is a Hawaiian-themed bridal shower, then grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts and so on, would be on the list of appropriate bridal shower attire. If the bridal shower has a theme, then you can choose your attire to match accordingly.

Your dress code could also be upon the basis of the location of your bridal shower. For instance, if it is taking place in a ritzy part of the town or city, then festive and casual dresses such as jeans and fancy tops could be appropriate. If the bridal shower is taking place in an ostentatious place, then suits and formal trousers for men and one shoulder fashion dresses or long style dresses for women should be appropriate. On the other hand, if the event is taking place in a country club, then the general clubhouse outfit would be appropriate. However, if you are more family-oriented or the theme is formal, then a formal skirt and blouse, or a pair of blouse and dressy slacks should be appropriate.

Keep in mind that, when you have chosen your bridal attire, be sure to take the guess work of the guests out of the equation. Let them know how to dress for the occasion. For instance, if you are having a bridal shower in an exclusive restaurant, let them know the dress code should be cocktail attire. However, if you are the guest and are in a dilemma about what the appropriate attire should be, ask the hostess, she will guide you in the right direction towards the appropriate dress code.

At the end of the day, a bridal shower is intended for bonding and enjoyment. So, if some guests are not in the appropriate dress code, make them feel comfortable. Ensure them that everything is fine. Most bridal showers are a casual event, unlike the wedding to follow. It is a time to relax and enjoy the company of good friends.
