Wondering what to wear to a rehearsal dinner when it’s not your wedding? We’ve all been there, and while outfits for the actual wedding and bachelorette party are a bit easier to plan, deciphering what’s appropriate for a rehearsal dinner can be a bit trickier. There are the location and climate to contend with, not to mention the fact that the rehearsal dinner is usually the kick-off event of all wedding festivities. But don't stress, it's actually much easier to find a look for this occasion than you might think.
Here are our tips: To start the weekend off on the right foot, first and foremost you’ll want to avoid anything that risks looking too bridal. White is definitely out, as are any super-soft shades of beige, pink, or anything that could be mistaken for white. Second, we recommend googling the location of the rehearsal dinner. This will give you the overall vibe and help you gauge what’s appropriate or not. Last but not least, make sure to find something comfortable to wear. Feeling comfortable in your outfit is an important way to ensure you have a good time, and ultimately, these events are about having fun with your friends and family.
