There aren’t many seasons in life when you can pick a color palette and commit to it for the long haul. That’s what makes being engaged so special (well, among other things, of course #likelove); once you’ve got that new bling on your finger, you’re officially a bride and all bets are off.

We just had some strong first impressions 😉 Here’s to seeing how spot-on we were!
It’s your ‘coming out as a bride’ party. The first time you’ll step out in your signature shade, and it should be iconic. This short-and-sweet illusion lace sheath with ¾-length bell sleeves is major for that moment ((and engagement party pics, too... )) Slim grosgrain trim details the waistline and sleeves, and the design is TDF. You don’t even have to accessorize heavily with this LWD, it’s got enough going on by itself. Just balance out that blinding sparkle on your finger with some simple drop diamond earrings and you’re done! Available exclusively at David’s Bridal in sizes 0-20.
Your bridal shower is the best venue to rock something classic and demure, but with a little bit of edge - and if you’re setting out to do that, you’ll certainly feel accomplished in this. With stretch lace and an illusion lace neckline, this dress hugs your curves, but stays seraphic with a high mock neck and short cap sleeves. Available online exclusively at David’s Bridal in sizes 2-14.
Who says you need to choose between traditional and trendy for your wedding day? Brave brides honor both, and they can do it in something like this Met Gala-inspired Mikado high-low wedding gown. #helloheavenlybody. This lustrous look is the epitome of effortless elegance. The simple bodice can be turned up with a studded sash, and the high-low hem is haute all on its own. Give those dazzling heels are chance to shine! Available exclusively at David’s Bridal in sizes 0-18.
Maybe you’ve enjoyed being the bachelorette for a while and finally found your person, or will be getting married a second time. Either way, this classic sheath lace wedding dress is drop dead delicious. Infused with stretch for a comfortably curve-hugging fit, it can be worn alone (the sleeveless, V-neck has its own vixon-like quality) or complemented with standout jewelry or a sparkling headpiece. Available exclusively at David’s Bridal in sizes 2-22.
Can’t even begin to look at this dress without instantly thinking celebrity-couture. Simple, elegant, and of-the-moment, this slim crepe sheath gown mesmerizes with a sweetheart neckline, off-the-shoulder swag sleeves, and a flatteringly-draped skirt. It’s a confident choice, and not many can pull this dangerously defined look off. It’s got model-magic written all over it. Available exclusively at David’s Bridal in sizes 0-18.
