Although you shouldn’t be afraid to step a bit out of your comfort zone when it comes to your rehearsal dinner outfit, be careful not to go too trendy. You don’t want to look back on those pictures and ask yourself something you may have heard older relatives say about their 70s fashion style – something along the lines of, “what was I thinking?” Go with something chic, fresh and timeless. IVillage suggested incorporating unique subtle trends that don’t go too overboard.
Step out in wedding shoes
If you’re especially proud of the footwear you have picked out for the big day, why not take the opportunity to wear them at the rehearsal dinner? If your wedding gown is long, it’s likely that only you and the photographer will catch a glimpse of them. If they’re heels, pair them with a more formal, elegant dress or skirt. If you’re opting for sandals, you may want to consider more casual attire, like a sundress. Either way, you’ll be getting extra use out of those wedding shoes!
Can I wear white?
This is a question many brides ask themselves before dressing for their rehearsal dinner. I mean, you’re the bride, so it’s completely up to you! If you think you look your best in white, then go for it. Accessorize the simple color with a boldly colored statement necklace or a pair of your favorite chandelier earrings. However, Wedding Channel recommended straying from a dress that closely reflects your wedding gown. Try revealing another side of yourself. If your wedding dress is sophisticated, try a more casual, fun outfit. It may be fun to switch things up a bit and have the opportunity to wear all kinds of clothes that reflect you!
