More Wedding Shower Looks: For the Bride and her Guests!

I have been asked many times by friends and family members about what to wear to wedding showers/brunches. Also, I have friends and family members who are currently in the bride's shoes, and they've asked about what to wear for their own showers. I love ALL things wedding, so this was a super fun topic for me to explore. My focus is my bestie Megan's wedding showers last weekend in Ohio. Megan and I have been friends since we were little girls in elementary school with matching blond bowl cuts. We survived our braces-clad middle school years together, with our moms confusing us on the volleyball team because we looked exactly the same- haha! Our friendship grew even stronger in high school (remember when we were employed by the fruit stand?! What in the world were we doing?! hahaha!), and we remained close through college at Miami of Ohio (Meg) and Saint Mary's (me) and Megan's time in dental school (and my move to Chicago). Though we haven't lived close since we were 18, we love to catch up weekly via text or the phone! She was in my wedding last year, and now I get to return the favor! :)

I absolutely adore this white dress on Megan! Even if you aren't in the market for a LWD, you can get it in navy or green for the summer. At $34.99, you'd be silly NOT to pick it up! The fit and flare style is extremely flattering.

We laughed because I actually featured Megan's dress on my eyelet post back in March, but she had purchased it before I posted it, so she felt really special. Ahead of Belle On Trend! haha!

Additional white shower dresses for the bride: here, here, here, here and here
Drooling over this Banana Republic sale dress, in eyelet: here. This J.Crew Factory eyelet dress is also fabulous (and on sale!). 

I picked up three Kate Spade bangles for Megan because my gift (more to come on that!) wasn't going to arrive in time (or so I thought!).

I bought a teal bangle for "something blue", a white bangle for "something new" and a "best friends ever" bangle for something borrowed-- this was a stretch-- because our friendship is "shared"! Megan is one of the most creative gift givers ever, so I wanted to try to be like her! (Don't worry-- I went on-registry for her other shower! Haha!). 

I also love her statement necklace.
Here, here, here, here and here are some great options to dress up a classic white dress. 

Jimmy, the groom-to-be, and Sean, the best man, surprising Megan with the most gorgeous flowers I'd ever seen! Blush Gerber daisies! OMG!

I love Jimmy's Nantucket Red shorts and chambray Oxford. Jimmy has also been my friend since we were under age 10, hanging around the swim club and West Blvd. Elementary School playground together! It's hard to believe I've known him 20 years! :) So glad these two ended up together (I knew it allllll along!). 

The future Dr. and Mr. Jim Hlebak! 

Best friends since elementary school! Literally, decades. WOW!

My dress: old Lilly Pulitzer, similar dresses here, here and here
My tassel earrings: here. I also love these Bauble Bar ones!

The bridesmaids! Just missing Reema and Crea! :) 

Megan and her sisters and her mom (far right) and soon-to-be MIL (far left). 
I mentioned Kim's dress on my last trending report. I just ordered it for 50% off! Major deal! 
I love the cobalt blue that Mrs. Hlebak, Kaitlin (middle) and Mrs. Turk have on.
