I'm Getting Married! Now, What Do I Wear To My Shower...

In T-Minus 2 days I will be flying home for one of my wedding showers.  With a lot of family up north, it made sense to do one back home and one here in Texas.  And since coordinating travel was required, this is not anything approaching a surprise.  Which is fine.  #ihatesurpriseparties

Y'all.  We are 4 months away from this wedding.  Yikes!  And EEEK!  And how about a SQUEEE!!!! for good measure?  I am so excited.  So much going on - wedding, house, hawaii...the rest of this year is going to fly by.  And first up in the wedding extravaganza is my shower.  The question remains...what to wear?  I know I want to wear a white dress, but there are so many great options to choose from.  Here are some that I am considering.

I love this pretty bell sleeve dress from Loft.  The cutout detail with the slight bell sleeves is perfect.  It's a simple dress with some fun interest in the details.  Definitely a contender.

I love a swing dress and this one from Loft is no exception.  The tassel detail is darling and the swing shape is an almost universally flattering silhouette.  Great for a Saturday morning brunch shower.

Another silhouette that works well for me is a shift dress.  I'm curvy, so dresses that tie around the waist can look bulky and not flatter my figure, but a swing dress, sheath dress, or shift dress work really well.  I've also had good luck with a fit and flare shape too.  When I saw this lace shift dress from Ann Taylor I knew it was going into consideration.

This pretty number from J. Crew might be my favorite of the bunch.  I love the eyelet detail and the bell sleeves.  What do you all think?

I think this J. Crew Factory linen cami dress is adorable and a great summer option that will get tons of wear all season long.

Of course I need to consider one of the hot trends of the moment - a one shoulder dress.  The ruffle trim is sweet and I think this J. Crew Factory dress would make a great option for a bridal shower.

I love the look of this dress.  I like the wrap detail and the ruffles, but as a curvy girl, there may be too much going on at the bust.  It's a maybe though.

This one might work better and I LOVE the accordion pleats on the skirt.  I love how flirty and feminine this whole look is.

Now to choose!  I love a pretty white dress in summer, so this is going to be a tough choice.  Which would you pick?
