If you’re a fall or winter bride, October and November are prime months for your bridal shower. On one of the most exciting days of your life celebrating your wedding with your closest family and friends, you’ll undoubtedly need a gorgeous fall bridal shower dress for the occasion.

Your wedding dress is, of course, the most important look as a bride-to-be, but before the big day, you’ll need a handful of looks from your engagement party to your rehearsal dinner. A bridal shower dress is a moment where you can go ultra-feminine with your look—we recommend saving the glitz and glamour for your bachelorette and rehearsal dinner, but if you’re in the mood for sparkle and shine, by all means, go for it!

If you consider yourself a traditional bride, a white dress touched with lace or in minimal crêpe is classic and so stunning. You can go super simple with a classic silhouette like a sheath or A-line number or embrace the season’s more voluminous styles like a bold, Victorian-inspired or ’80s-style shoulder—don’t be afraid to experiment with color or texture in these cases.

If you’re a more casual bride but still want to wear white, a fall floral print is gorgeous where you go for a simple wrap dress or cotton shift. Modern brides will love a dress with nuanced details whether it’s a white lace with contrasting black accents or an asymmetrical silhouette in a color or print. Polka dots are lovely if you’re in the retro mood—the motif feels classic and feminine without being overtly bridal.

The best part about a fall bridal shower dress is that, more often than not, it can be a style you wear throughout the season after your celebration. Come holiday season, we know you have a multitude of events on the calendar that goes beyond your bridal festivities, which is all the more reason to select a bridal shower dress (and maybe a few extras!) that are versatile enough for multiple occasions.

Whether you’re looking for a fall bridal shower dress that’s classic, bohemian, or fashion-forward, ahead, we’ve rounded up 56 options from ultra-affordable styles (that means under $50!) to designer versions (if you’re interested in spending a little extra). Get inspired!
