White Dresses for Rehearsal Dinners

What should the bride wear to a rehearsal dinner?

A short or mid length dress is the best rehearsal dinner dress choice. Saving the long wedding dress for the big day itself, a short and sexy white cocktail design is ideal for any bride. This still gives you room to choose from many different dress styles. A fit and flare white dress will suit many body types, making it an easy choice. This can include a romantic strapless sweetheart neckline which has a classic bridal look.

You could also choose a very simple sleeveless white dress for your rehearsal event. Designs that have just one statement feature, such as a one-shoulder strap with statement frill look very stylish and contemporary. A floral embroidered midi length dress is a sophisticated and timeless option. You'll also be able to re-wear this following the dinner to other parties and events. 

Short Wedding Dresses

These short white designs can also be worn as wedding dresses. Some brides may choose a more casual wedding theme, or simply don't want to wear a full-length bridal gown. These short wedding styles still have some traditional features such as lace, embellishment and embroidery. This gives them the level of detail to make them look dressy enough for any bride on her wedding day. It's a great style choice for a summer destination wedding.

If you're choosing to get married at a registry office or on a beach, a short wedding dress may be a more practical choice. These short white looks are stylish and inspired by the latest trends. This includes a range of style details like fringe, open backs, flared sleeves and off-the-shoulder necklines.


Rehearsal Dinner Dresses For Mother of the Bride

The mother of the bride or groom may also need to find the right dress for dinner. For the right age-appropriate outfit, a midi dress with cap or short sleeves can be a very elegant choice. This can be found in an array of fun and striking colors such as red, royal blue, lilac, burgundy and wine. The mother of the bride could choose to stand out in a statement print or a beaded midi dress. These are all stylish options for the rehearsal dinner.

Floral embroidery is another timeless choice that works well on the mother of the bride, for the rehearsal or big day itself. An a-line or empire waist dress are two styles to try out to flatter different body types. Long sleeves or a boat neckline are famous for adding a timeless and sophisticated twist to any dress.   


Rehearsal Dinner Outfits

Bridesmaids and guests will also need rehearsal dinner outfits, which the bride or groom may have outlined in the invitation. Check for a set dress code before you choose your dress, as there may be a color theme to abide by. Bridesmaids may all want to dress in the same color as each other. This means finding a great party dress in a romantic tone - blush, red, champagne, silver or gold are great choices for a rehearsal dinner venue. 

For guests, a simple party outfit should be all that is required for a rehearsal dinner. Depending on the location, you may want to wear a short cocktail dress or mid-length design. Florals, bright prints and sparkling details will add to the happy celebration. The style and neckline of the dress can be down to your own personal taste. The best 2018 trends include halter necklines or off-the-shoulder straps.
