We love when our clients hire us to capture their rehearsal dinner, because it gives us a chance to really focus on who the VIP’s are, ensuring that we make sure there are plenty of moments documented during the wedding day with them. Shooting rehearsal dinners also gives us space to see our clients in a more relaxed setting than on wedding days, so we can see you in your natural element and help you get to that place on wedding days when things (maybe!) get a little stressful or anxiety-inducing.
Our clients love to look towards fashion, so we thought we would share some of our favorite looks for rehearsal dinners coming up in 2022. Of course, fashion will be highly dependent on the setting and vibe of your rehearsal dinner, and we encourage you to work with your planner and stylist to ensure continuity between your ideas and what will look ideal on that day to make you comfortable, and of course help your photos shine! This guide will give you an idea of the looks we’re loving that were totally made to be camera-ready for your rehearsal dinner!
Look One – The Classic Bride
This look would be incredible for our brides having a formal rehearsal dinner option. The clean shift silhouette is a great look for rehearsal dinners taking place at historic/private estates or country clubs.
Dress: Amsale, Bow Back Shift Dress
Shoes: Bella Belle, Kate
Look Two – The Polished Non-Traditionalist
For the bride who wants to be different, fashion-forward, yet polished, this is the look for you. Going bold with a color is so unexpected for the bride, which makes this a fun way to put a twist on wedding weekend fashion. You won’t have to worry about blending in with your guests when you choose fabrics like silk or satin, and mesh with a bold shoe.
Dress: Reformation, Julius Dress
Shoes: Sophia Webster, Rosalind
Look Three – The Sexy, Sultry Bride
Personally, I love the clients that bring a little sultry to the wedding weekend. Think about it, this is a celebration of your love, and love is passionate, sexy, and should feel like the two of you. This look is perfect for the bride that wants to bring a little bit of that passionate, sexy love with a polished flair. The one-shoulder trend is definitely recycling back in style, and this is a great look for rehearsal dinners occurring at historic/private estates and fall destination venues.
Dress: Amsale, Satin One Sleeve
Shoes: Jimmy Choo, Saeda 100
Look Four – Something Blue
Playing upon the “something borrowed, something new, something blue,” this look combines a classic toile print with a little sexy and a lot of glam. We love this look for our clients having seaside rehearsal dinners, historic/private estates, or something a little more casual. These Sophia Webster heels are the perfect look to glam up your outfit, and providing an epic body shape to enhance that sleek slit on the dress!
Dress: Reformation, Juliette Dress
Look Five – Texture on Texture
To know us is to know we love playing with textures. Often our clients choose gowns that have the most unique texture to them, setting them aside from traditional bridal looks and fashion. Going with this BHLDN number guarantees something fun and flirty while staying fashion-forward with the textured dress and darling Jimmy Choo’s with a fascinator bow at the heel.
Dress: BHLDN, Dahlia Dress
Shoes: Jimmy Choo, Aveline 100
Look Six: The Bride Who Wants It All
One of my favorite looks for 2022 is this jumpsuit set from Sachin & Babi. Talk about a total jaw drop, this set provides you with two looks. One that would be perfect for wear during cocktails/dinner, and one that would be perfect once the party got started. If you’re planning to have live entertainment at your rehearsal dinner/welcome party, and give your guest a real peek into how much fun your wedding day will be, this is the look to go for.
Jumpsuit Set: BHLDN, Poppy Jumpsuit Set
Shoes: Jimmy Choos, Bing 100
We’re so looking forward to seeing what our clients pull out for their 2022 rehearsal dinner looks, and hope this can serve as some inspiration for you as you finalize your wedding weekend fashion.
