The Brides Guide to Rehearsal Dinner Dresses

Jan 10, 2013

More often than not the rehearsal dinner is an after thought for some brides. Many of us get so caught up in the excitement of the big day that we forget how important and memorable the rehearsal dinner actually is. Choosing a rehearsal dinner dress is an important part of preparing for the event. Here are some things to keep in mind as you choose your dress for the rehearsal dinner. 

- What type of rehearsal dinner will you be having? Will it be an intimate event or an extravagant soiree? The type of party you’re throwing sets the tone for what type of dress the bride should wear.

- The dress you wear to the rehearsal dinner should be different than your wedding dress. As you’re shopping, look for a dress with characteristics unlike your wedding gown. For example, if your wedding dress is sleek and sophisticated, choose a rehearsal dinner dress that has fun details like a ruffled skirt.

- A rehearsal dinner is usually a more casual affair than the wedding, so think of delicate details, like a short cocktail dress or a pastel colored evening dress.

- Most importantly, choose a dress that you’re comfortable in. If you’re uncomfortable then you’re going to appear that way to the guests at your rehearsal dinner.
