The new year has kicked off, which means thousands of weddings happening around the U.S.– every single day. With this being said, it isn’t rare when a friend or loved one decides to tie the knot, but when the opportunity does arise, we can’t help but feel the urge to put our party pants on. (Did somebody say open bar?)
Being a guest at a wedding is both an honor and an excitement. It gives us and excuse to get dressed up and celebrate the matrimonial union of two people who have fallen in love– Ah, romance! So, what if you’re even more than just a guest and you’ve been selected as part of the bridal party?
The rehearsal dinner is your chance to shine as one of these chosen few, so your outfit can totally reflect your personal style. Given the event, it’s important to keep it classy, but don’t be afraid to add some glam to your look. After all, it’s not the bride’s big day just yet! Depending on your personality and preference, there are a ton of looks that would be appropriate for this occasion. One thing to keep in mind when choosing an outfit for the rehearsal dinner is the other guests that will be part of this event. The attire will be stated on the invitation, but these occasions typically yield a formal type of clothing, so a not-too-flashy-but-still-fun cocktail dress is great for the occasion.
Here we’ve compiled a couple different outfit combos that would be the perfect marriage of classy and fabulous for a rehearsal dinner. We’ve stuck with a neutral palette that satisfies both the more stylistically adventurous and those with a more subtle look in mind. These tones can be easily transformed with a “pop-of-color” necklace or other accessory pieces; the possibilities are truly endless!
