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.

From budget-conscious finds to designer styles, keep scrolling for the best outfits for a virtual bridal shower. Each one will have you looking and feeling your bridal best—cheers to that.

Shopping FAQs

Buying a virtual bridal party outfit? We've answered three common questions brides have when shopping for the big event.

How can I stand out virtually?

There are plenty of ways to make sure you're still stylish on your bridal shower day. 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, whether that's fashion-forward, classic, or feminine.
