On the week of your wedding you’ve got the finer details of the wedding finalised, your guests are arriving in town, you’ve had your last wedding dress fitting and you’ve broken into your wedding shoes…you’ve got everything covered except…The Rehearsal Dinner Outfit!
It seems for many a bride the rehearsal dinner is very much an afterthought and more often than not brides frantically piece together their rehearsal dinner outfits. Don’t let that be you! Here’s a few tips and tricks to finding the perfect outfit for your rehearsal dinner.
A formal soiree
Your natural instinct might be a LBD, but that might be a little sombre for the occasion. Pick a cocktail dress that you’d love to wear again and again, either a structured pop of colour or a whimsical floral gown. Teamed with some fun heels and a mood-toned eyes.

A mid-day brunch
You might not want to go too formal though if you do – go for it – you’re the bride! A beautiful boho maxi styled with some glitzy sandals make the perfect outfit for a mid-day event. Or go for a flattering pastel creation.

Classic vs. Trendy
If you’re wearing a classic wedding gown, why not go for something uber fashionable for the rehearsal dinner. If you however, are going for an unconventional dress for the wedding, opt for something more classic – maybe a white lace dress?

Add the accessory and then add some more
It’s your time to shine, so add a little bling to the mixture with some statement earrings and a great clutch. Why not accessorise with a bright coloured lippy? A coral red lipstick is always a good idea.
