Courtesy of Farfetch

White-dress shopping doesn't begin or end with the ultimate hunt for your wedding gown. There are a lot of other pre (and post) -wedding ops for you to step out in the classic bridal color: Celebrating your engagement is your first chance to show up in wedding white, and fun events like your shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and a day-after brunch often call for a bridal look too. Luckily for you, this season (despite the winter weather fast approaching!) was jam packed with white, beige, ecru, and ivory options—all of which are perfect for brides-to-be. The best part about these snow-toned designs? You'll be able to wear them long after you say "I do."

High-relief silk is an innovative alternative to lace, while a flirty skirt feels just right for dancing.
