What Should I Wear to My Rehearsal Dinner?

Now that you’ve chosen the dress of your dreams, there is still one more essential outfit you need to plan for — the rehearsal dinner. Brides, of course, can wear whatever they like to their own rehearsal dinner, which usually occurs the night before the actual wedding. While the possibilities are endless, you might be wondering what kind of look goes best, especially if this is going to be a special night with close friends and family around. The good news is that anything goes! So here are some of our best recommendations for what you can wear to your rehearsal dinner.

The Little (White) Dress 

You’ve heard of the little black dress for nights out on the town, but have you heard of the little white dress? This option is for brides who like a classic look and silhouette. What’s great about this look is how versatile it is. For example, you can wear it with pearls and laced up heels for a sweet, sophisticated look. Or layer with a bold jacket and sandals for something slightly more casual.

Since the dress is white, brides can add on touches of their wedding colors to complete the look. Use your jewelry, handbag, heels, or a blazer to match the theme of your wedding.

The Statement Skirt

There are many different directions you can take with a statement skirt. A long, vintage-style flare skirt is perfect for a formal affair. If your skirt is dressy, keep it simple on top with a neutral color. You can always add interesting pieces for more color and variety.

For high-waisted pencil skirts, you can play with textures, colors, and metallics for something a little more upbeat and bold. Since this is sunny South Florida, you can try some bright florals to make it pop. Complete your bridal outfit with a matching clutch and high-heeled pumps. Your friends and family are sure to love it!

The Jumpsuit or Romper

Are you a trendy bride? Now you can wow your guests with a stunning jumpsuit or stylish romper for your wedding rehearsal dinner in Orlando. What’s great about this trend is that it’s very easily layerable. Add a statement jacket or boots to pump up the look.

Jumpsuits can also be dressed down for the more casual bride who still wants to radiate on her big night. This very feminine look seems effortless, yet looks stunning. Jumpsuits also look great in photos as well!
