There are many events for which a bride must dress-up before she takes the plunge and says “I do.” So for Nordstrom Bridal Director, Andrea Wasserman’s monthly wedding suite pick, it was all about the dresses a bride wears while she is still a Ms. Instead of the classic LBD (little black dress), why not go for something a little lighter, and a little more bridal? A LWD (little white dress) is much more suited for all the festivities leading up to a destination wedding. From the engagement celebration, the bridal shower and the bachelorette party, to the  rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and morning-after brunch, Wasserman has made her picks for the cutest LWD’s to wear to any wedding-themed event.

  • Jill Stuart Ruffled Chiffon Fit & Flare Dress ($238), Ivanka Trump “Indico” Pump ($119.95), Nina “Brooklyn” Crystal Teardrop Chandelier Earrings ($75), Diane von Furstenbeg Tweet Leather Miniaudiere ($295).

This dress and accessories combination is perfect for a classy bridal shower look. The ruffled chiffon creates a soft look, which complements the structured skirt wonderfully. Paired with fun printed heels, dramatic chandelier earrings and a subtle yet sophisticated clutch, you will feel pretty and put together in an ensemble like this.

  • Ted Baker London Embroidered Mesh Fit & Flare Dress ($825), Badgley Mischka “Goodie” Pump ($245), Ted Baker London “Safari Play” Twist Lock Envelope Clutch ($110).

After a long night of dancing and celebration you will no doubt want to slip into something comfortable for the morning-after brunch. The dress’ sleeves will let you relax seeing as you won’t have to worry about a bra strap showing or a sagging dress. This outfit is my personal favorite of Wasserman’s picks, I just adore the floral clutch and the bright pop of something blue which really brings the whole look together.

  • ML Monique Lhuillier Bridesmaids Strapless Ruched Cationic Chiffon Dress ($188), Glint “Devyn” Sandal ($129.95), Nina Peony Glass Pearl & Crystal Cluster Bracelet ($95), Nina Beaded Clutch ($98).

This sultry look has an air of sweetness about it while still managing to be sexy at the same time. What is a more perfect outfit for a bachelorette party? Accompanied with killer sparkling fuchsia heels, you will be sure to be the life of the party. Polish off your get-up with fun jewelry and a vintage feeling clutch for a show stopping bachelorette party outfit.

  • Donna Morgan Embellished Ruffle Chiffon Dress ($248), Nina “Mariana” Sandal ($88.95), Nadri Cubic Zirconia Cluster Bangle ($198), Tasha Flower Box Clutch ($48).

With the moment you say “I do” fast approaching, you don’t want to have to worry about how your outfit will look at the rehearsal dinner. Feel confident and beautiful in this ruffled chiffon number offset with jewel-toned shoes to pull off a sophisticated and poised look.
