To help you plan accordingly, we’ve put together a checklist of five outfits you’ll definitely need on your wedding journey. From cocktail attire to casual-chic pieces, your ultimate shopping list lies ahead.
5 Outfits Every Bride-To-Be Needs
For Your Engagement Party
For your engagement party, a black and white cocktail dress is eye-catching—modern accessories drive a feminine silhouette forward.
For Your Bridal Shower
Go slightly unexpected in a two-piece top and skirt set. Pastel add-ons and sculptural earrings bring nuance to the bridal-white palette.
For Your Rehearsal Dinner
A bustier top and skinny trouser pairing is refreshing ahead of your wedding gown debut. Unique accessories lend an element of playfulness.
For Your Reception
As a sartorial bride, we know you’re planning for a second look at your wedding reception—and nothing says party time like sequins. Experiment with color and opt for a dress in barely-there blush. Black accents add a graphic finish.
For Your Post-Wedding Brunch
You did it, you're married! Treat yourself to an easy-chic ensemble the day after and go for an off-white sundress with swishy fringe. A woven bag, shell earrings and relaxed slides are perfect for day.
