What to Wear: Bridal Occasions

A Little White Dress Guide from BHLDN

While we’re only a few months into 2021, COVID-19 mandates continue to change and your bridal journey is bound to go in unexpected directions. Micro weddings and city hall ceremonies are replacing traditional I do’s for many couples, and newlyweds are celebrating with a mini-moon or cozy night in rather than an exotic honeymoon. Add in backyard bridal showers and at-home engagement parties—you’ll have lots of unique opportunities to show off your style as the bride! To help you find the perfect wedding wardrobe, we’ve teamed up with BHLDN to curate a little white dress guide for all of your bridal occasions. From modern rooftop nuptials to casual backyard celebrations, we’ve got you covered!
