Find Out What To Wear To A Rehearsal Dinner

Published in Get the Look

Are you in a fix about what to wear to a rehearsal dinner? We can help you out!

A rehearsal dress, according to experts should be more about expressing the bride’s personal style – and that’s exactly what you should be looking for. We’ve got it all planned out for you, just follow these expert tips, to pull off a spectacular look at your rehearsal dinner.

Two Different Looks

You would be the center of attention, thus it is important that you choose a look that reveals you as completely different from your wedding day look. We’re basically hinting at the other side of you when it’s about what to wear to a rehearsal dinner. Go for a fun, contemporary rehearsal dress if you’re wearing something traditional on the wedding. Show some skin in a sexy strapless bodycon if your wedding dress is conservative with a high neckline.

Don’t Shy Off from Colors and Prints

A little black dress is classy, and always a winner. But when it comes to what to wear to a rehearsal dinner, there is so much more you can experiment with. Think bright bold colors like hot pink, and turquoise, or the pastel shades of lavender and sage. You can even stick to the classics: white, red, and blue. Don’t be afraid to wear bold prints. Floral prints look absolutely gorgeous, and stripes are in this season. Just make sure the dress you pick is relevant for the event.

Complete the Look

A string of pearls in your neck is a classy fashion statement, but there’s more to accessorizing than just that. Remember, the rehearsal dinner is your very first introduction to your soon-to-be extended family; you might as well look your best for that. Add sparkle with a pair of diamond studs (never goes wrong!). Choose a handbag that is just the right size, preferably small and one that complements your dress. Don’t overdo your makeup. It’s ok to look fresh and prim but going Goth with the eyes doesn’t work.

Watch Your Comfort

Buy a dress you’re comfortable in. Make sure it’s the right size – a size 6 means 6 to be precise. Try it on before the rehearsal and see if it needs alterations; if so, get them done beforehand. Pick lingerie that works well with the style of your dress. If the answer to your “what to wear to a rehearsal dinner” is a strapless dress, pick a strapless bra, and nobody like panty lines so be careful on that too!

Even when you’re following this guide to the T, make sure you pick a dress you absolutely love. This is the key element of answering the longstanding question what to wear to a rehearsal dinner’ properly. Experts say that donning a dress one feels great in can make the person’s entire body language better. Chin up, head high, and don’t forget to wear a confident smile.

That’s a wrap, ladies! We hope this post helps you overcome the dilemma of what to wear to a rehearsal dinner. You can find gorgeous collections of dresses for rehearsal everywhere in the United States, whether you live in Kentucky or New York.
