We love rehearsal dinners for a number of reasons: working out last minute jitters, celebrating with friends and family, and, of course, shopping for the perfect little white dress! Whatever your style, we’ve got you covered in this roundup of white dresses ideal for your rehearsal dinner.

For the Love of Lace

Where there’s a wedding, there’s lace! What we love most about lace is how timeless it is. Plus, it looks amazing whether you’re going for a modern or vintage look. This gorgeous For Love and Lemons dress has the delicate lace details we all know and love, and the solid white slip underneath makes for a fun balance of sweet and risqué. The Michael Kors crochet dress would be ideal for a more formal rehearsal dinner — the organized pattern of the lace reminds us of a vintage tea room. And the fun Alice + Olivia dress has a playful, flouncy A-line style perfect for a more rustic event.

Modern rehearsal dinner dresses

Black Halo Sanibel 2 Piece – $325

Sleek white rehearsal dinner dresses

Nicholas Wrap Front Midi Dress – $375.00 $225.00

Wrap rehearsal dinner dresses

Zhivago Eye of Horus Dress – $440

Modern Elegance

Clean lines, sleek fabric, flattering cuts — these are a few of our favorite (modern) things. These modern styles are perfect for a non-traditional wedding, or for a bride looking for a statement dress. We love this A-line Nicholas Wrap Dress, with its flirtatious, deep V-neck and fitted belt around the waist. And the sharp shoulders and flattering wrap-front of the Zhivago Eye of Horus dress show the right balance of skin/fabric. Plus, this on-trend Black Halo Sanibel 2 piece with a high-neck crop top is fun, mature, and elegant in its simplicity.

Vintage rehearsal dinner dresses

Diane Von Furstenberg – $348

Vintage rehearsal dinner dresses

Rachel Pally Dress – $216

Badgley Mischka – $295

Vintage Vibes

We’re going retro! Forget those preconceived ideas of vintage being old, boring, or out of style. These looks are modern but have a subtle touch of style characteristics from past eras. This Rachel Pally dress’s statement feature are those draped sleeves. There are so many classic 50s and 60s style dresses with bare shoulders, and for good reason. This is a clean look that can easily be spruced up with bright accessories. To contrast, we love this Badgley Mischka long-sleeve dress because of its traditional, classic shape and Old Hollywood glamour. Lastly, this cute Diane Von Furstenberg tie-waist is giving us total 40s vibes. While shirt-dresses might seem casual, the fitted waist and flared skirt keep it youthful, formal, and fun!
