We’re just kidding. You should never try to upstage the bride. And you should never, ever, ever tell her to stand aside, unless you want your Save-The-Date “lost in the mail”. What you should do is look happy to be there, gorgeous, and anything-but-flashy-at all the events leading up to her big day.

Here’s a formula as tried and true as You + Me = Us:

You + Ladylike Dress + Nude Shoes + Stellar Accessories =

Fabulous Friend At The Bridal Shower Who Definitely Not In The Least Bit Jealous And Hasn’t Been Eyeing The Groom

This spring’s plethora of pastel, chevron and floral frocks in feminine A-lines and gorgeous drapes give you more than enough options for dress. For shoes, if the shower is inside, don a pair of nude heels, if it’s outside, save yourself the trouble and wear a neutral wedge. Top it off with eye-catching accessories–with a bright earring here and a statement purse there, we just dare Aunt Sally to ask if you’re dating anyone special yet, dear.

Happy wedding season, ladies!
