If you’re getting married this summer, it’s likely your bridal shower will be very soon which means a summery bridal shower dress is high on your shopping list (if it’s not, it probably should be). With the big day getting closer and closer, you might be feeling a little stressed out (okay maybe a lot stressed out), but a day spent celebrating with family and friends will be a happy occasion for you to enjoy yourself and revel in all your bridal glory. Having a gorgeous bridal shower dress picked out is one way to make sure you’ll feel your best on one of the most special days of your life.

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 whether that means a more casual lace dress, floral print frock, or fun color. Another important factor is the season. With warm weather on approach, choosing a summer dress that feels both bridal and fitting to hotter temperatures is the perfect way to celebrate your approaching summer wedding (willing 85-degree days means they’ll come faster, right?).

This season, feminine silhouettes like puffed shoulders, voluminous sleeves, square necklines, and bustier and corset-style silhouettes 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 color like nude, pale pink, or yellow. Or, if you want to wear white but are also craving color, go for a floral print dress or trendy tie-dye pattern (a fun look if you’re a bohemian or beachy bride) — 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 cotton sundress in white is low-key chic but keep the feeling special by opting for more of a playful silhouette or style with pretty detailing.

Whether you’re looking for a bridal shower dress that’s classic, casual, or fashion-forward, ahead, we’ve rounded up 29 options from under-$100 styles to designer versions.
