Forget little black dresses — little white dresses are taking the reins as the new staple wardrobe item. And for good reason: They are not only fresh and functional, they're fashionable too. The best time to wear a little white dress a.k.a the LWD? Your wedding, of course! Whether you need an engagement party dress, a rehearsal dinner outfit, bridal shower look, or reception dress, a LWD will fit the dress code at any of your wedding events.
Speaking of the many bridal events coming your way, you're bound to need at least one last-minute outfit for something: From elopements to city hall ceremonies and a surprise bridal shower, having a short wedding-worthy number in your closet is not the only necessity — being able to purchase one right-this-minute is pretty important, too.
To help you narrow down the abundance of LWDs available online, we searched high and low for the best designs you can purchase right this instant. From eyelet numbers perfect for a boho bride's rehearsal dinner, to guipur lace — courtesy of Self-Portrait — for the most high-fashion bride's city hall wedding and French girl-ready looks from Laure de Sagazan, we found a LWD for every kind of bride, plus every type of event.
Ready to get your LWD? Click through to not only see the cutest little white dresses for your wedding, but shop them, too!
