The wedding dress is the dress of all dresses. But if you’re an engaged bride-to-be, you’ll soon come to realize that in the time leading up to the big day, you’ll wear many dresses — to bridal showers, brunches, engagement parties, lunches and the rehearsal dinner.
Rehearsal dinners were once simple affairs after the wedding rehearsal, but have since grown into a more all-inclusive, to-do event with pictures, speeches and pomp and circumstance. Thus, you must dress the part! Traditionally, the bride wears white to the rehearsal dinner because, well, what other time in your life can you get away with so much white clothing? But really, it’s about your personal style and how you want to look as the bride-to-be. Don’t be afraid of color, pattern, pleats, sparkle or even jump suits.
Whether it’s a laid back picnic or a ritzy soiree, we’ve got you covered with some rehearsal dinner outfit inspiration.
