You’ve spent a lot of time thinking about your wedding dress, but a bridal shower dress is another look you’ll want to spend a good amount of time thinking about. As one of the most photographed looks you’ll wear as a bride-to-be, you’ll want to choose a silhouette that stays true to your bridal style.

This season, feminine silhouettes with puffed sleeves, delicate lace details, square and off-the-shoulder necklines are majorly on trend, all of which are perfect for a fashion-forward bridal shower look. If you'd prefer a classic look, lace dresses are gorgeous and romantic whether you choose bridal white or a pretty pastel hue like soft blue or blush. If you want to wear white but are also craving color, go for a floral or even gingham print dress—there’s no hard rule that says you have to wear white to your bridal shower. If you’re a casual bride-to-be, a sundress in easy breezy fabrics like linen and cotton are an effortlessly chic choice.

Ahead, the best bridal shower dresses for every bridal style, season, and budget.
