10 Little White Dresses to Wear Before AND After Your Wedding

best little white dress

As soon as you start planning your wedding, you quickly realize just how many parties are going to fill up your calendar. From the engagement party to the bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding reception (even the wedding brunch), you’ll be celebrating your upcoming nuptials for months before you actually say “I Do.” But what are you supposed to wear to each of these events? While we love incorporating pieces you already have in your closet, one staple you’ll DEFINITELY want to budget for is the Little White Dress. And Amsale’s LWD collection is one of our favorites. Think of it as the modern dress code for every wedding event.


Starting at $385 and all Made to Order, the Amsale Little White Dress is a chic, fresh alternative to the LBD. Less formal, but just as sophisticated as traditional Amsale gowns, the Amsale LWD collection gets you dressed for every pre- and post-wedding celebration you need. It’s also a great, fashion-forward choice for walking down the aisle (think destination wedding or a reception at your favorite restaurant), or even a wedding wardrobe change. Want to think outside the typical wedding dress box? The Amsale Little White Dress collection also features a statement-making jumpsuit—which we’re pretty sure we would live in on our honeymoon—that is also perfect for those post-wedding cocktail parties and anniversary dates.

We rounded up 10 of our favorite pieces from the Amsale LWD collection, below. Each one of these little white dresses (or jumpsuit!) would be an amazing addition to your wedding wardrobe. Keep in mind that because their LWD dresses are made to order and take 6 weeks for production and shipping, you’ll want to plan ahead so you’re ready for each event. Can’t wait? You could be lucky enough to score an LWD you love that’s ready to wear (or wed). You can purchase a select few styles on the spot at Amsale.com or at an Amsale retailer near you.

For your Engagement Party…

Typically thrown by the brides’ parents or the couple, your engagement party calls for a chic and modern dress that makes your feel gorgeous no matter how casual or dressy the location is. Featuring a lace camisole neckline and circle skirt, Amsale’s Guipure little white dress is a little bit sexy yet still totally appropriate.
