    With social-distancing standards in place, you've likely faced many changes when it comes to your wedding as a bride-to-be. Your date, venue, vendors, honeymoon, or all of the above might be affected thus far as well as pre-marriage celebrations like your bridal shower.

    If your shower was planned to a T, your preference might be to postpone until a later date. If a delay is not ideal, virtual bridal showers and even virtual weddings are options embraced by brides-to-be. Is it the scenario of your dreams? Surely not. But as we roll with the times, it's a way to still feel the love without sacrificing everything (i.e., canceling the event entirely). 

    And, though you'll be embracing guests with virtual hugs and glass clinks, you can still wear the bridal shower outfit of your dreams whether your bridal aesthetic is leaning bohemian, black-tie, or laid-back. Your bridal shower outfit is the one way you can maintain a sense of normalcy during this time and feel that dress-up excitement you would have felt in-person alongside your family and friends. So, why not select something that makes you feel your absolute best? You'll still take plenty of photos via virtual group shots, mirror selfies, or an at-home photo session, which makes a stylish look incredibly necessary. 

    To help inspire your virtual shower style, we've found tons of beautiful outfits from brands and retailers that will look amazing via video.

    What to Look for in a Virtual Bridal Shower Outfit

    The silver lining in having your bridal shower go virtual? It can be anything you want it to be! From the drinks you toast to and the food you enjoy to the outfit you wear, the expectations and rules go out the window. So with that, we say: you do you! Opt for the ensemble that makes you feel special, comfortable, and most importantly—like a bride! If you're seeking an effortless and easy look that allows you to kick your feet up at home, we recommend a jumpsuit or romper in a soft, stretchy fabric. Sweep your hair up into an updo to keep it out of your face and accessorize with statement studs. If you're the type of bride who is looking to make a statement, go all out! Whether it be a floor-sweeping gown with eye-catching embellishment or a pretty little mini with asymmetrical detail and a bow, there's no one stopping you from dressing to the nines right at home. Be mindful that your guests will most likely be looking at the upper part of you body (although we do encourage you to do a full-body twirl!). Because the lower half of you won't be in clear view, we especially love an interesting neckline or statement jewelry. One shoulders, architectural lines, off-the-shoulder strap, draping, and strappy details are just a few of our favorites ways to elevate the virtual bridal look.

    FAQ
    • How can I stand out virtually?

      Since guests will probably only see the top half of your outfit, go for an off-the-shoulder or one-shoulder moment. Or, something as equally eye-catching, like lace or ruffled sleeves.

    • Do I have to wear white?

      While it is customary for the bride to wear a white or cream color, it's absolutely not necessary. Use these unprecedented times as a reason to break with tradition and wear a solid or multi-colored print outfit.

    • What silhouette would be best?

      That's ultimately up to you but some brides tend to pick something that's similar to their bridal style and what they find to be the most comfortable.
