Weddings Wardrobe - The Wedding Reception

Finally, I get to think about great outfits to the actual reception for guests! Whether its a beach wedding, an exclusive yacht club wedding or even a country farm wedding - you can still look fabulous. It's possible to celebrate that you are still single, the bride has to talk to all her guests, you can choose only the handsome ones :)

Wedding Wardrobe - The Rehearsal Dinner

The night or two before the actual wedding, the wedding party/ close family will normally gather for some sort of dinner like event to celebrate the marriage before the wedding. There is no set theme and these events can vary from a small dinner in a church basement  to a luxury yacht outing.

Needless to say, you still need to look good right? If you are in the wedding party this will be a time when there will be attention on you, to maybe make a small toast or simply be pointed out as the "cute single bridesmaid".

Ellie Tahari Bryce Dress $378 
(for the conservative high class dinner)

Shoshanna Gathered Bodice Dress $340
(Spring/Summer Time outdoor dinner)

Riller & Fount Kimono Mini Dress $142
(for your nicer restaurant dinner rehearsals)

Collective Concepts Floral Dress $79
(pair this with a cardigan and you have a perfect casual dinner outfit)

Settings for such event like the rehearsal dinner can be extremely different, you may think it is casual but then find out it is at the Viceroy in Miami. Just like how you prepare to find out if there are single groomsmen, you always look good :)
