6 Morning-After Brunch Outfits That are Totally Bridal — and Totally Comfy!

Showers & Parties, Wedding Dresses

As soon as you've said "I do" and walked back up the aisle, the wedding diet is officially over. You've heard it before, a lot of brides only eat a few hors d'oeuvres and cake at their wedding, and we think cake for dinner is the perfect way to celebrate! And then, of course, there is the morning-after brunch. What better way to nurse a hangover or aching feet than eggs, bacon, Bloody Marys or mimosas and a huge cup of coffee? And while you spent the morning of your wedding day primping, we say the morning-after is the perfect opportunity to sleep in, take a quick shower, and slip on something super comfortable. For the bride who wants to milk wearing white for all it's worth — without sacrificing feeling like she's still in pajamas! — we've rounded up a few outfits perfect for your wedding weekend brunch. We won't blame you if you're still wearing them when you crawl back into bed for a nap!

Gap Roll Sleeve Sweatshirt Dress
Yes, you read that right: Sweatshirt dress. Don't sacrifice comfort for style, and instead roll into brunch in this super-soft shift. Zippers and rolled sleeves add a little edge, but whether you decide to slip those wedges on or opt for flats instead, you'll look chic and pulled together — but feel like you're wearing pajamas.

Tiare Hawaii Amalie Jumpsuit
What to wear when you can't imagine pairing separates and a dress just won't cut it? A bridal brunch jumpsuit, of course!

Vero Moda Halter Neck Maxi Dress
What is it about maxi dresses that make them feel so much like pajamas? The nightgown-esque silhouette probably has something to do with it! Embroidered details add a little visual interest, while a drawstring waist can easily be adjusted if you decide you need a second chocolate croissant. And just think how great it will look over a bikini on your honeymoon! (Embroidered halter neck maxi dress, $64.70, Vero Moda available at ASOS)

Tularosa Quinn Smocked Dress
Nothing says "throw it on and go" like this smocked, off-the-shoulder style. The lace details are decidedly bridal, while the stretchy bodice and loose silhouette are oh-so-comfy. And did we mention it has pockets? ("Quinn" smocked dress, $158.00, Tularosa available at Revolve)
