Hello, lovely Bridal Musings readers! Bené, BM’s resident style contributor, here. I’m stopping by to share another post packed to the brim with chic ideas for brides with a penchant for all things fashion.
With so much focus on the big day, picking out a rehearsal dinner outfit often becomes a bit of an afterthought.
So today, I’ve put together three super stylish rehearsal dinner outfits—featuring the prettiest LWDs (aka little white dresses).
That way, you can concentrate on completing your wedding day look. And for the rehearsal dinner… Let’s just say I’ve got you covered.

A rehearsal dinner is one of my favorite parts of a wedding weekend. For many couples, it’s the first time they see friends and family that have traveled in for their big day.
And anytime an entire wedding party gets together, you know some serious fun is in store.
Rehearsal dinners tend to have more of an intimate vibe compared to wedding receptions, and you can always feel a sense of anticipation and excitement in the air.
For some, the rehearsal dinner is a casual affair. But for other couples, it can be more formal.
Either way, a rehearsal dinner is the perfect occasion for a bride to make a first impression and to set the tone for the weekend ahead. It’s also a great time for a bride to play with a fun look that shows off her personal style and taste.
Take a peek below at my favorite rehearsal dinner dresses for cocktail, casual, and beach dinners.
