Alison: Rehearsal dinners are hard. If you’re in the wedding, ideally you wouldn’t have to buy a dress, but it’s also your moment to shine, style wise. Obviously you should never try to out-shine the bride, but if you enjoy putting together an outfit, this might be your only chance this weekend to pick out your clothes.
I love this draped dress in a punchy raspberry. I’d keep my accessories classy with a two-tone belt, and nude pumps, but I’d add those sparkly studs for maximum impact.
Jessica: I couldn’t pick just one dress! If you’re in the wedding party, you probably want to wear something doesn’t look like a bridesmaids dress. That said, I completely and totally agree with Capitol Hill Style that anyone other than the bride shouldn’t wear anything remotely close to white – and I think that rule applies at the rehearsal dinner too.
For me, a rehearsal dinner dress needs to be fun, but something that I can wear with black or nude heels (or something that you have already) and not a lot of jewelery. It shouldn’t be too much for your best friend’s grandmother, but still attractive and something you could totally wear again. These three options are all adorable
