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.

Of course, there is something sweet and special about staying “bridal”. For our bride marrying on the beach in Rhode Island, an airy white lacy gown was her choice for the rehearsal dinner night.

Going full glam is also an option. If you fall in love with a fun statement making dress, wear it!

And, don’t shy away from a less formal, or non bridal look. Here, our bride used so much color throughout her weekend, that this dress just made sense. Then, for a coastal fall wedding, a dress inspired by the sunset over the water was a perfect choice for the night before.
