Bridal Outfits for Every Wedding Celebration

Bridal Outfits for Every Wedding Celebration

An American getting married to a Briton calls for not one, not two, but three celebrations! I’ll go into more detail about how we celebrated our wedding THREE times with three different events, but for now, I wanted to share with you the bridal outfits that I wore! Especially because two out of three of my outfits are now on sale!

I originally planned on wearing my wedding dress to each party because who usually gets to wear their dress more than once? However, I didn’t anticipate how completely filthy my dress would get. We must’ve had a good time!

So, last minute, like I do everything in life, I had to find a white dress to wear to our reception in England. Ted Baker is one of my absolute favorite designers, so when I needed to find a dress last minute, I headed straight there. Their clothes fit me like a glove every single time! I came out with a classic, white, embroidered, skater-style Ted Baker London dress with POCKETS. I paired it with the shoes I wore on my wedding day and the same earrings and red lip. It was the perfect dress to dance all night in!

My wedding dress was two pieces, so I thought it would be fun to wear the top of my dress and pair it with a different skirt for the Florida party. I ordered three skirts to Florida and tried them on as soon as I arrived. But, I didn’t like any of them because they weren’t my wedding dress. So, I went panic shopping. Again. I overnighted two white outfits from Nordstrom for our event the very next day. There was no guarantee that they would arrive in time, but I was hoping that the universe would be on my side and that they would fit! Miraculously, they arrived about three hours before our party and they both fit perfectly.

I wore the one-shoulder dress by Bardot to our cocktail reception, since it was a little more formal and I saved the sassy one-sided jumpsuit by Chelsea28 for our after-party!

Below are photos of each of the outfits and all three are linked at the bottom of the page to shop!

    What great outfits! I would have never noticed them based solely on the stock photos, but they look perfect on you! And I think having four wedding outfits is even better than wearing the wedding dress three times, especially as you can probably wear these for other occasions as well.

      Thank you so much, Julie! You’re so right. I love that they’re not too bridal, so I can wear them again! Thank you for the sweet comment. ??☀️

    I love your Florida dress and the Ted Baker with pockets! As a fellow Florida girl (Tampa) these would be perfect options to stay cool for the several summer weddings I have. Great post 🙂
