What to Wear to Your Rehearsal Dinner for the Bride to Be

You’ve been planning the wedding of your dreams for a year or more, and you’re finally ready to get to the fun part – WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR FOR YOUR WEDDING WEEKEND! All eyes are on you, which means you need to secure the best of the best white outfits for every event leading up to the wedding , including the rehearsal dinner dress. There are many different styles you can go for when it comes to the rehearsal, so I broke down a few of my faves, ranging from classic, elegant rehearsal dinner dresses, to beach-chic rehearsal dinner dresses that will take you right on through to the beachy destination wedding welcome party. Here are my favorite looks for a bride-to-be at the rehearsal dinner!

This is the white bride dress that I wore to my rehearsal dinner in Maui! If it’s sold out, here’s a very similar one! I paired it with this choker from Cult Gaia that I’m obsessed with. I’m wearing size small in the dress. The choker is adjustable!
