Planning a wedding is fun, but planning the outfits for all the wedding activities is really fun.  One of the best parts of planning outfits for all of your wedding events is they can be as dressy as you want because you are the bride.  As someone who loves a good statement look, this fit me perfectly.  For my bride to be outfits, I looked for chic, white of course, and classic with a statement piece or two.  I also tried to pick dresses that fit the event whether that was the theme or location.

Since most of these outfits were from last summer, a couple dresses are sold out.   I still wanted to share everything I wore as inspiration for all brides to be out there trying to figure out what to wear to bridal showers, the bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner.  Luckily for all my brides to be out there, many of these looks are still available!

This romper was perfect for a multi-tasking day.  We started with a 5 hour drive to Texas Wine Country followed by a few winery stops.  I love the loose fit and comfy factor of this romper for the long drive, and chic romper look for wine tastings.

We ended up not going to brunch, so I wore this dress a few weeks later for my birthday lunch.  I loved the flowy material and pastel rainbow colors.

Our bridal party wore navy and gray in our wedding.  We decided to incorporate these colors into our rehearsal dinner outfits.  I found this metallic tiered midi dress and knew it was the perfect mix of cocktail and statement.

I ordered a few face masks for us to use on our honeymoon for flights and walking around the resort.  I ordered one set that would match our wedding day attire just in case we needed them.
