Bridal shower season is upon us. What a wonderful opportunity to celebrate love and romance, plus bridal showers are a wonderful reason to get dressed up too!

We’ve assembled a list with some of our favorite bridal shower dresses to get you ready for just about any type of bridal shower.

1. Try a floral dress

Why not embrace the romance of the event and try a feminine dress in a floral pattern? Go bold in a bright floral or if florals are outside of your comfort zone, stay subtle in a subdued tone on tone floral pattern with neutral accessories.

2. Wear a ruffle or flounce

Add a dress with an on-trend ruffle detail, or try a skirt with a flounce or ruffle in a bright jewel tone. Make a little black dress more unique by choosing one with a flounced bottom. Up the fun quotient by pairing it with whimsical patterned flat ankle wrap shoes with pom poms.

3. Go with gingham

Nothing says summertime like gingham. Choose one of this season’s dresses or skirts in this cool, stylish summertime fabric. Choose an A-line shirtdress or a statement-making gingham skirt with an asymmetrical ruffle detail down the front. Don’t be afraid to add other colors and patterns with your gingham to give your outfit a more sophisticated feel.

4. Go black and white

Opt for a dress with a fresh graphic black and white look. Choose a modern bold graphic pattern or a more feminine polka dot dress with a figure flattering shirred waist. Keep it fresh by adding bright accessories and pops of white.

I have no bridal showers coming up, but that doesn’t matter. I saw a lot of things I really liked.

Most of the bridal showers I attend these days are very informal so the gingham and graphic looks in the black and white section are the most appropriate. I like the collarless v neck fit and flare dress from Nordstrom and would love to pump it up with fun and colorful accessories. Hope it comes in petite sizes!

I love the dresses and skirts you have for the bridal shower. My favorite is one shoulder pink rose dress. I love the floral dress in fact I got floral dress I can wear two ways. Dress was eight dollars I got it when Jcpenny outlet store was closing in Forest park, Ga it is white with pink, green, purple flowers . I love wearing sometimes I wear with green , purple, pink, even white shoes.
I love pink off shoulder dress with rose. I love black and white dress always timeless. I love bridal shower dresses. Mother of bride dress looks to matronly to me. I like how Kate Middleton mom dresses for both her daughter wedding .She was age appropriate but still sexy, beautiful.

Elaine, I agree, most of the bridal showers I go to are in CA, so they are very casual and most seemed to be held outdoors so the gingham looks are perfect for those kind of low key settings.

Veronica, $8 for a dress, you are a savvy shopper! I agree the fresh floral patterns feel so right and upbeat for a bridal shower!
