How To Choose The Perfect Rehearsal Dinner Dress

Your rehearsal dinner is the first official party to kick off your wedding celebrations, and your rehearsal dinner dress will likely be the last outfit you wear before saying "I do" Whether you're having a casual backyard wedding or a formal black-tie affair, your rehearsal dinner dress will set the tone for your wedding weekend.

 Below are our top 3 best dresses for your rehearsal dinner! 



Just as you coordinate your wedding dress to the venue, the same goes for the rehearsal dinner. Depending on whether your rehearsal dinner is 5-star formal or as laid back as it gets, it’s a great opportunity to show off your individual style, anything from cocktail dresses, flowing florals, or an amazing jumpsuit, are perfect.



Change It Up

When dressing for your rehearsal dinner, it is all about having fun and getting creative. Instead of going for the same silhouette as your wedding gown, try a different style to change things up. For example, if your gown is super modern, you might opt for a floral maxi dress or a lace dress. And if you have a favourite trend, your rehearsal dinner is the time to wear it.




The full spectrum of white goes beautifully to your rehearsal dinner, but remember, you’re the bride and it’s your party. The only rules are the ones you make. If you prefer to wear a rehearsal dinner dress in bright colours or soft pastels or bold prints, go for it. You can also add a little shimmer through a sequin dress or hand beaded dress.




You’ll be moving about all evening welcoming friends and family all night. Make sure you’re not distracted by your rehearsal dinner dress, and that it’s comfortable to move in. While the bride’s rehearsal dinner dress is all about individual style, it should also be easy going and relaxed—so you can be feel your most comfortable confident self.
