What to Wear for the Rehearsal Dinner

The night before the wedding is typically spent in the company of loved ones at the rehearsal dinner. Wondering what to wear? Whether you’re the bride or a guest, let your hair down and give the hot jumpsuit trend a try! Since you’ll be all dressed up for the wedding, a chic jumpsuit is just the answer for the night before. Sleek, elegant, comfortable, and you’ll definitely wear it again -- an added bonus! 


For this week’s style cheat sheet, I’ve created two looks for the rehearsal dinner centered around the jumpsuit -- one splurge-worthy option for the bride and one budget-friendly option for the guest.

Rehearsal Dinner Bride - Splurge Worthy

A faux wrap jersey jumpsuit in navy is so versatile you’ll be surprised by all the ways you’ll wear it. Pair it with flip-flops for a casual night out or with these red leather heels for a dressier look. Increase the glam factor with a pair of statement earrings and a gold cuff bracelet. And as your finishing touch and an unexpected texture, complete your outfit with a clutch purse made from cork with subtle splashes of color.

Rehearsal Dinner Guest - Budget Friendly

Who’s the genius who thought of creating a summer jumpsuit in denim? I love this wide-legged jumpsuit from ASOS! And because it’s denim, you can dress it up, dress it down, and wear it as a guest for your friend’s wedding and more all summer long. Add these beautiful suede sandals, the embroidered zebra clutch from Zara, and lastly, earrings and a cuff bracelet in silver tones to go with the cool blue of the jumpsuit.
