How To Not Be a Basic Bride

Thanks to websites like Pinterest and Instagram, there are a lot of bride who are clued into the "do's" and "don'ts" of wedding planning. When it comes to fashion trends, there are certainly looks that are done over and over again by brides across the country. We find, however, that the coolest brides are the ones who are defying conventional & cliche expectations, and dressing in ways that set them apart! 

If you want to be a bride-to-be who is setting trends instead of following them, take a look below at how you can look anything but basic during your engagement events.  

The Bridal Shower

Basic Bride
When their Bridal Shower comes along, brides across the country reach into their closets and pull out a little white dress, often accessorized with statement jewelry or heels to provide a "pop" of color. 

The Trend Setter
We're always a fan of LWD's, but who says you have to wear white to your bridal shower? The most fashion forward brides at our boutique are opting instead for soft floral prints to set them apart from every other bride. 

The Bachelorette Party

The Basic Bride
Bachelorette parties are easily spotted. Typically, the bridesmaids or invitees have matchy-matchy tees while the bride stands out in a LWD or little white tee. 

The Trend Setter
Super fabulous bachelorette's leave the alcohol references for another Saturday night. What's even better? Mix-and-Match metallics let everyone feel like a rockstar! Or, if your girls prefer brunch over break-of-dawn partying, telling your girls to wear different prints will make for Instagram-worthy photos. 

The Rehearsal Dinner

The Basic Bride
Once again, here comes the LWD! A trend we loved for a long time was doing a short, lace rehearsal dinner dress, which gives a bridal feel but looks a little more fun. 

The Trend Setter
Since Rehearsal Dinners are typically very elegant evening affairs, we suggest wearing a long dress with a little more sophistication. Still want to get everyone thinking "wedding"? Wear one of your wedding colors as a nod to the next day.
