For every wedding event, Runway Bridal Picks

Your official bridal debut is the engagement party, so it’s a good idea to choose white. This is a wedding event, so you can be a little more adventurous with your color choices. This playful, silver-grey off the-shoulder Jonathan Simkhai Romper is my choice. The subtle pattern is complemented by a little shimmer for a festive feel. You are the guest of honour! For a sophisticated look, pair it with sleek clutch and strappy sandals.
Bridal showers are usually held in the morning. Depending on the setting, you can dress however formal or informal you like. The smocked Sea New York dress features whimsical flutter sleeves with eyelet embroidery, giving it a feminine touch. The square neckline and fitted bodice flatter the figure while the skirt is comfortable to move in. For a new look, I paired it with delicate bow heels.
This is the weekend you have been waiting for: the bachelorette. You’ll need a cute mini dress no matter where you or your I Do team are going. Milly’s white and gold scalloped, sequin-stripe shift dress will make everyone think you are the bride. The dress sparkles just right and has a tie-back bow. Pair the dress with high heels made of PVC like I did.
It’s important to be relaxed the night before the big day. A jumpsuit is a great choice for rehearsal dinner, as it will save you the wow moment for your wedding dress the next day. The soft, breathable satin Ieena by Mac Duggal long-sleeve jumpsuit has a plunging V neckline and a tailed bottom. It is classy but also sexy. Accessorize with metallic bags and embellished heels.
After the wedding goes off without a hitch, you are officially married! Your time as a bride is over. It’s time to say goodbye and bring back color in your wardrobe. The honeymoon is the perfect time to do this, as it’s a time for you and your spouse to relax together. This Tanya Taylor halter dress in bright green is what I would wear to my tropical postnuptial vacation. It’s comfortable and flowy, but it still feels special and elegant enough for the occasion. For a casual day of walking, pair it with flat sandals or with heels for a romantic dinner.
