I guess it depends on what you feel most comfortable in? I have been to quite a few showers and I usually wear a dress, or dress pants with heels and a blouse. I wouldnt feel comfortable wearing jeans though. Do you  have dress pants or a skirt?

I would personally probably wear a dress, I think most guests will be wearing dresses!

I think as long as they are nice jeans and you wear a nice top you’ll be fine!

What is the look you are going for?  Maybe we can help?  I know this might sound weird but Sears has awesome dress options.  I was super surprised the last time I was there!  I got a dress for my nephew’s baptism!

You can wear what you like, but if you are worried, think about what others might be wearing.  My friends are jeans wearing girls, so that’s what I’m wearing!

I wore a pair of slacks and a nice sweater. It was way too cold for a dress and most of the women there were wearing similar things. You know the guest list and yourself better than we do. As long as you are comfortable with what you’re wearing, who cares if its “bridal”?

Your guests will most likely be a lot more dressier than that.

I think it depends on the venue where the bridal shower is being held, but a nice pair of jeans with a fancy top are most likely fine. At my bridal shower I wore a dress, but the guests definitely weren’t as fancy as me. Wear what you feel comfortable in, not what other people expect you to wear.

@grapecrush:  My bridal shower was also in a friend’s house. People wore jeans. I wouldn’t question it if you’ve got a silk blouse and a blazer. I don’t know how many people are going to get this reference, but that’s very Lorelai in Gilmore Girls and she always rocked jeans with a silk top and blazer for a fancy look!

I think most guests will wear a dress or nice dress pants unless they are told otherwise.  I don’t think anybody even wore pants to my shower, but it was in the summer. 

What if you do a cute dress with a sweater and some tights? If not, I think you could get away with wearing dress pants, but honestly, I wouldn’t wear jeans.
