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!

FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Bachelorette Party

Last week on the blog we broke down what to wear to a bridal shower, this week we’ll be talking bachelorette party attire! Bachelorette parties are the perfect excuse to get dressed up and hit the town with your best friends to celebrate the bride’s last hoorah as a single woman! There are a few things to consider when figuring out what to wear to a bachelorette party, including where you’re going, what the plans are while there and what the weather will be like. Ahead we’ve provided some bachelorette party outfit inspo for the bride and her guests, no matter the destination!


If you and your squad are headed to Vegas, or another big city where you’ll be exploring night life, it’s time to break out the bodycons. If you’re a guest at the bachelorette party, leave the head to toe white ensembles for the bride-to-be opt and for a LBD. Add a little something extra to your look and choose a LBD with chic embellishments or sexy cut outs like our Pendulum Black Bodycon Dress or the Alluring Evening Black Beaded Bodycon Dress. If you’re the bride being celebrated, choose a LWD (little white dress) that suits your style and you’ll be comfortable in all night long. A sultry two-piece set with lace detailing like the Chic My Interest Ivory Lace Two-Piece Dress will be sure to turn heads.

Bachelorette Party - Vegas

A bachelorette party is the ultimate way to let the bride-to-be relax and let loose with her closest friends. What better place to kick back and relax than on a sandy beach? If you’re prepping for a beach-side bachelorette, be sure to pack plenty of bikinis, sandals, and vacation-worthy outfits. For the bride, pair a sexy white bikini with a cute crochet cover-up for a chic and put together look. As a guest, embrace the casual setting with a cute tropical print romper and accessorize with a summer tote to hold your beach towel and floatie!

Bachelorette Party - Beach

A daytime bachelorette in a picturesque setting, such as wine tasting at a vineyard, calls for your most feminine and ladylike looks! Floral frocks, chic jumpsuits and midi dresses are all fantastic options for an afternoon sipping on rosé with your best babes. Our When You Smile White Midi Dress, featuring embroidered details, makes the perfect put together look for a bride-to-be! The drawstring waist cinches atop a midi skirt with ruffled hem, creating a flattering silhouette for any figure. Top off your look with the Bloom Cream Embroidered Clutch. Attending a bachelorette party geared around wine tasting? Opt for something that will keep you cool and comfortable all afternoon long, like a printed romper or floral skater dress with lace-up detailing.

We can’t wait to see the pretty pics from your girls’ weekends! Be sure to share your bachelorette moments with #lovelulus and let us know in the comments where you are going to celebrate with your friends! Stay tuned next week for tips on what to wear for the rehearsal dinner!

FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Bridal Shower

Wedding season is in full swing, which means you’re bound to have a slew of bridal-related events in your future. We’re here to break down what to wear to a bridal shower, whether you’re the bride-to-be being celebrated or attending as a guest!

As the bride-to-be, remember this day is about you! When it comes to picking out what to wear, the key is to look chic and polished, but still feel comfortable for mingling, playing games and toasting to your future. We would suggest a beautiful maxi with lace details for an ethereal feel, or for something a little more casual and on-trend, try our Lucy Love Barefoot Bride White Embroidered Midi Dress. If you’re looking for something that isn’t plain white, a floral dress such as our Bloom On Ivory Floral Print Maxi Dress or our Take You There Ivory Floral Print Maxi Dress are also great options!

Bridal Shower - What to Wear as a Bride

As a guest of anything wedding related, it’s always a smart idea to steer clear of white. Opt for something with a classic silhouette and stick to pretty pastels and fresh florals to avoid upstaging the bride. Things such as location and season will also play into your outfit choice. If the shower is being held at say, a fancy venue, of course you’ll want to dress accordingly! Below we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite looks perfect for your next bridal shower!
