Dressing for Dinner

We often see a lot of designs, posts, print spreads, and inspo boards on what to wear for your wedding day. But, we don’t want to forget all of the fashion fun you can have for your rehearsal dinner.  Today, we are sharing just a few of our favorite rehearsal dinner looks for your shopping inspiration.  Above, one of our most “liked” looks comes from our bride who married at her parents. And, for her rehearsal dinner, she sported Brandon Maxwell pants, a Remy Brook top, and statement earrings. Loving the pant look, and hope more brides consider it…

We cannot get enough of the pants. How chic is this silk damask tailored strapless suit by Lela Rose (a friend and one of our favorites)?

Also, this new take on a pant suit? A hi/low confection by Oscar de la Renta was our Bride, Emily’s choice for her rehearsal dinner. And, for the guys, I love this relaxed but chic look for the groom. For example, a tailored suit and crisp oxford, but nix the tie.

This beachy bride went for a pretty in pink look for the welcome party night of her wedding weekend. So into the pink dress idea, both for other parties and actual wedding days!

Don’t shy away from color. In contrast to a pale pink, for a fall beach wedding, a bright pop of color is sunset inspired.

Of course, the little white dress look is still a fave. But, think shorter, a different hemline, or profile are what many brides are opting for.

And, don’t shy away from a casual, or non bridal look. This bride used so much color throughout her weekend, that this dress just made the perfect statement.
