Have you seen white dresses popping up as the bride’s color of choice at pre- and post-wedding events as I have? I like it. I first noticed it at a bridal shower. I’ve also seen it a couple of times since at rehearsal dinners. It’s even made an appearance at the day-after brunch.
It makes sense to me on a practical level because everyone at these parties is there to honor the bride and the groom. If the bride is always in signature white, it makes her easy to spot.
Not to say you have to go out and buy white for every single event you attend, but it might be nice to feel a little bridal pre-wedding and wear a kicky white number, no?
To help, I’ve created a gallery of 10 white dresses I’ve spotted. They’re varying degrees of dressiness with varying price points — from $27.99 to $525. You should find one that suits everything from a dressy engagement party to a casual bridal shower. A few would even make fun reception dresses.
