Your bridal styles extends beyond the dress you will be wearing on the big day.
You may have a bridal shower, an engagement party, and most traditionally - you will have a rehearsal dinner. And when you are already busy with last minute planning, you don't want to have to stress about what you are wearing to your rehearsal. You can instead plan out this look, just like you will with your wedding day style. So we have gathered a list of the most chic rehearsal dinner looks to help you plan out your chic look in advance. And one thing to remember is that your rehearsal dinner is a great time to play around with other styles that interest you. So be open to ideas and have fun with your look!
01. Sachin and Babi: Chic Separates
Your rehearsal dinner is a great time to play around with bridal separates. This look from Sachin and Babi combines an asymmetric stretch crepe skirt and a statement sweater with chandelier-inspired crystal embellishmentt.
