Finding my Wedding Rehearsal Dress


I’ve been so preoccupied with logistics for my wedding, that picking a dress for the rehearsal dinner became a low priority task. Not until I started shopping for a dress did I realize that the rehearsal dress is almost as important as choosing a wedding dress. It’s an opportunity to express your personal style. A huge part of picking a dress is considering the location of the dinner. Some venues call for a formal look while others do not require all the formality.

Since we’re going to be in a hot and sunny destination,  I want to wear something with color, that is flowy and romantic. I also want to standout from the crowd. Blending in has never been my forte. I visited Best Dressed to browse their fabulous collection of dresses. They have a wide variety of choices for different style preferences and body types. They also offer these wares for a fraction of the retail cost, by allowing their customers to rent the designer dresses.

These are my top 3 Rehearsal Dinner choices.

Dress #1


While hanging on the rack, I was a little underwhelmed with this dress. I wasn’t sure if it was giving me more prom vibes, rather than someone who’s about to get married. I was pleasantly  surprised when I put on the dress. It was super flattering on my frame. It fit in all the right places and was very supportive. This floor length pleated dress stole my heart.

Dress #2


I’m going for the polar opposite from your traditional black cocktail dress with this pick. This halter maxi is perfect for a summer-night party. The bold pattern is definitely a showstopper. This silhouette really flatters my shape. I felt lean and statuesque in this dress. I also like that there is white in the dress; which still gave that bridal feel.

Dress #3


I love the detail of the back of this dress. 💙 I’m big on prints and colors and this dress did not disappoint in those areas. This is something I would totally wear during the summer as a guest at a wedding or graduation. My only reservation about this dress is whether it’s  bold enough and would set me a part from the other guests.

Friends, I’m curious to hear your thoughts. Which dress do you think I should choose for my rehearsal dinner? This is an important decision and your girl needs a little help. I will reveal my choice in a future post.

      I’m a fan of that one too! It has a cool striped pattern on the side of the dress. It’s going to be a tough decision.
