When it comes to getting ready for your dress rehearsal, there really are no hard rules. Traditionally, the bride always wears white or another very light neutral color to each of her events, in keeping with long-time wedding rituals. However, some modern brides are choosing to be more expressive with their rehearsal dinner frocks—sporting everything from brightly-colored and breezy maxis for coastal events, to eye catching jewel-toned cocktail dresses for dinners with a more sophisticated vibe. And showing your personality isn’t the only reason you might choose to buck tradition. When the season doesn’t lend itself to a white dress, it can also be more comfortable to wear something that is more weather appropriate like a dress in a luxe texture like velvet or festive holiday hue like rich green or burgundy for a December pre-wedding meal. Whatever your preference, these eight gorgeous dresses are sure to help you turn heads.
