FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Rehearsal Dinner

Your rehearsal dinner is the last major event before your big day and the official kick off to your wedding weekend! Depending on the size of the wedding, and the wishes of the bride and groom, the rehearsal dinner can be anything from a formal sit-down dinner to a casual outdoor get together. With so much going on leading up to your wedding day, it’s easy for your rehearsal dinner look to take a back seat, which is why we have put together another bridal style guide to make getting ready for the day before the big day easy as can be!

Destination Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Destination

Destination weddings are all about enjoying the beautiful location and taking in the scenery.  A rehearsal dinner for a destination wedding will likely be on the casual side, but be sure to embrace vacation vibes and keep the setting in mind when choosing your outfit. With crochet lace detailing and on-trend statement sleeves, our Love Letters Dress is the perfect option for the bride-to-be. This dress also features a breezy silhouette that will keep you cool and comfortable all night long. If you’re a guest who has made the trip to attend a destination wedding, have fun with your look and choose a vacation dress that you wouldn’t typically wear in your day-to-day life. Bright florals, embroidered details, and two-piece sets are all fabulous options.

Formal Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Formal

If you’ve chosen a formal setting for your rehearsal dinner, you’ll want your attire to be equally elevated. For the bride, choose an elegant midi dress that radiates class. Our Wishful Wanderings White Lace Midi Dress combines delicate lace with satin ribbon ties for the ultimate bridal look. If you’re attending a friend’s rehearsal dinner in a formal setting, we suggest opting for a more modest silhouette, such as a midi or maxi dress, or even a jumpsuit! Our beautiful Love Interest Black Floral Print Maxi Dress or a chic jumpsuit like our Let Me Entertain You Black Satin Jumpsuit are both fantastic options for a formal event.

Casual Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Casual

A casual setting rehearsal dinner is the perfect time for your friends and family to mingle and get to know each other! If you’re having a backyard BBQ or have chosen to host a dinner at a casual restaurant, be sure that your outfit matches the tone of the evening. If you’re the bride, a darling sundress with off-the-shoulder details is the perfect mix of casual with a hint of sexiness. Attending a casual rehearsal dinner as a guest? Go for a cute and playful look with our Seahaven Denim Blue Print Skort Dress, or add some drama with a deep V neckline with our Faithfull the Brand Nova Terra Cotta Floral Print Dress.

Congrats! You made it to the day before the wedding in perfect style! Be sure to share your rehearsal dinner looks with #lovelulus and let us know in the comments which look you love the most!

Vacation Style #2: Crop tops

Crop tops are an effortless essential to take your look from day to night.  These belly-baring tops are perfect to pair with your favorite cut offs or bikini bottoms for a stroll along the beach to catch some sun, but then transition into a nighttime look when paired with a longer hemline that only shows a hint of skin for a dressier style.

Vacation Style #3: Printed Pants

A day-to-night essential, these patterned bottoms are fashion forward 24/7! They make a statement worn with sandals for tropical days, but throw on a pair of block heels or wedges and your look is as fashionable as they come for a night at the club or on the patio. We especially like a pair of patterned pants as a comfortable alternative to wearing a dress on more active vacations.
