After working in the bridal industry for so long, we often hear questions like, “What do you wear to the rehearsal dinner?” Well really, it’s all up to you. But for a little guidance, Siri is happy to share a few helpful tips and ideas.
There are a few key factors you may want to consider when choosing a rehearsal dinner dress, much like when you’re bridal gown shopping:
1. Location. Majority of rehearsal dinners take place in a restaurant or in someone’s home. But make note if the rehearsal dinner is taking place in an outdoor setting. It could be in a place where it’s chilly or unbearably hot. Either way you want to be prepared and still look and feel your best.
2. Do you want to wear white? It’s the rehearsal dinner, not the actual wedding after all. There is no rule that states that you have to wear white for the dinner or even your wedding. Although, a chic cocktail dress in white or ivory is stunning and can most certainly be worn again.
3. Themes are important to consider too. Your ensemble should reflect the theme since you and your partner are the center of attention for the festivities. You’ll be setting the tone for how other people will dress.
4. This isn’t the actual wedding. You don’t have to go and spend a fortune on a dress that costs as much as your bridal gown. Whether it’s a formal or casual rehearsal dinner, remember to have fun, mingle with your loved ones and the rest will fall into place.
