When it comes to putting together your wedding wardrobe, we’re so thankful for online shopping these days! We get it, you’re busy and sometimes in-store selections just aren’t cutting it (I mean…have you been to a mall lately?). Selecting the perfect rehearsal dinner dress can be exciting, but also time consuming and expensive. Especially when you factor in everything else you need to buy, bachelorette weekend looks, shoes, your wedding dress…just to name a few. At Grace + Ivory we’re all about quality for your money, so we don’t believe you have to shell out another thousand to find a budget-friendly rehearsal dinner dress that speaks to who you are as a bride!
We’ve pulled some of our recent online favorites and listed them from least expensive to most, so you can keep your look within your budget. Whatever that may be!
For The Elegant Summer Bride
The Shining Brightly Ivory and Gold Floral Jacquard Mini Dress from Lulu’s. At $45, this shimmery gold and ivory rehearsal dinner dress looks expensive without the price tag. We love the stiffer structure in the skirt for a mini dress that feels more elegant than it is beachy. We’re picturing it paired with a gold shoe and small hoops. Did we mention it has pockets?
For The Lace-Loving Bride
The Amazing Allure White Crochet Lace Bodycon Midi Dress From Lulu’s. At $62, you won’t need to throw caution to the wind with this rehearsal dinner dress pick. We’re loving the structure in the seaming, the V cut square neckline, and a tastefully sexy slit. Pair it with a nude heel and a slicked back pony or bun to elevate the look. We think this midi would be a stand-out pick especially if your wedding dress was a sleeker fabric like crepe or mikado silk. We love a bride who can do it all!
For The Cool Girl Bride
The Mase Dress from SaboSkirt. At $72, this flirty, corset-inspired dress is great for a bride who is on the hunt for a little white dress with tons of re-wear possibilities. We could see this incorporated into a coastal rehearsal dinner setting, or paired with strappy sandals for a casual bridal shower look. We’re picturing a bronzy eye and a cool-toned gloss to complete your cool bride aesthetic.
For The Cottage-Core Bride
The Zoey Smocked Midi Dress from Morning Lavender. At $72.99, this blue and white rehearsal dinner dress is perfect for the bride that wants to add some color to her pre-wedding day look. We love the girly elements in this dress from the print to the puff sleeve to the ruffled hem. We’re picturing it paired with an ivory pump and pretty headband. Did we mention the sleeve can be worn up or down?
For The Pretty & Powerful Bride
The I’m The One Two Piece Set from Showpo. At $79.95, this two-piece has re-wear potential (Isn’t that the beauty of a set?). Not only could we see these pieces separated for a variety of outfit combinations, but together they create a rehearsal dinner look that is very on-trend and chic. It may not be a dress, but we thought it was too good not to make the list. We’re picturing it paired with a strappy heel and some hoops.
For The Romantic Bride
The Poplin Strapless Midi Dress from Abercrombie & Fitch. At $90, this soft poplin midi is the perfect rehearsal dinner dress, especially if your nuptial practice is somewhere outside and sunny. We love the ruching on the bodice, the A-line skirt, and removable straps. We’re picturing it paired with some cute white wedges and some effortless waves.
For The Modern Bride
The Manhattan One-Shoulder Midi Dress from Marcella New York. At $98, this midi dress lives up to it’s elegance meets edge description. The asymmetry with the neckline and sleeve is perfect for the modern bride who is known for her fashion-forward style. We could see Blair Waldorf loving this rehearsal dinner dress pick, it’s called “The Manhattan” after all.
For The Satin-Loving Bride
The Aisle Dress from Elliatt. At $190, this is a stunning rehearsal dinner dress for the bride who doesn’t believe there’s such a thing as being overdressed. We love the sexy and sleek satin fabric, the draped neckline, and covered buttons. This would also be a great juxtaposition look for a bride who chose a more traditional wedding dress, like a tulle ballgown. We’re picturing this Aisle Dress paired with a simple white heel and an extra sparkly earring.
For The Ruffle & Bow Bride
The Clementine Mini Dress from For Love & Lemons. At $248, this dress tops our list of budget-friendly rehearsal dinner dresses. For Love & Lemons is known for their practically girly style, with lots of florals, laces, and almost too pretty to wear lingerie (If you’re also shopping for your honeymoon!) But with the details on this dress, the ecovero poplin fabric, and eco-responsible production…I’d say this dress is worth the price tag. We’re picturing a light blue shoe with a matching bow?
