As a new bride, the next year or so of your life is going to be an exciting, memorable whirlwind of wedding planning and bridal events. From your engagement party to the honeymoon, you’ll be in the spotlight — so it’s important that you look your best!

One chic style that we’re loving on newly minted brides is the versatile romper, which is surprisingly perfect for any wedding-related occasion. So ditch the little white dress and freshen up bridal fashion with this feminine-yet-modern look. Need a little inspiration to get you started? Here are 10 times when brides should definitely rock the romper.
