Are you on wedding TikTok? You’re reading this blog, so chances are you’re either engaged, almost engaged, or just love weddings (you are not alone), and you’ve seen the wedding wardrobe everywhere on social. As multi-day celebrations take the wedding world by storm, a curated wardrobe capsule is becoming as integral to the wedding as the Dress itself. What exactly is a “wedding wardrobe”? How do you begin to build your collection? Why is this a thing and do you need one?
A wedding wardrobe encapsulates your bridal attire outside of your actual wedding dress. Why limit yourself and all your bride energy to just one dress? Shouldn’t you feel fabulous and special for all of the events that a wedding brings: showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, day-after brunch, and any other events you have planned to celebrate you and your significant other’s love story? Planning a wedding specific capsule wardrobe allows for a cohesive and chic bridal look that will have you and everyone else mooning over pictures when they’re finally ready.
What your wedding wardrobe looks like is entirely personal, and should be curated to your aesthetic and your wedding? You can do this by taking cues from your wedding dress (if you have it picked before any major events), and try to integrate textures, fabric, and design into the rest of the collection. Take the color scheme of the wedding and transfer it into the color pallet of your wardrobe. No, it doesn’t have to just be white! Above all, your capsule should feel and look like you and your style. It is a fashion show after all.
It should be obvious by this point in the post why the “wedding wardrobe” is such a trend. You make a fashion statement and you get to have a ton of fun putting together and shopping for the perfect outfits. However, you do not have to do a wedding wardrobe to have an incredible wedding! It is not for everyone, but it may be for you.
Are you going to hop on the trend in the 2023 season?
