Rehearsal Dinners, Bridal Showers, and Dresses—Oh My!

Finding a dress to wear for the ceremony can be taxing enough, but you’ve finally done it. All seems well… until you realize you still have to find outfits for the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner.

Let the great dress hunt begin!

Then…you start to factor in the wedding’s color schemes, themes, the venue, the formality of the events, and boom! You’re in full-blown fashion crisis mode.

Don’t panic! We are loving these dress picks from Lily Boutique and they suit every style and body type. Not only do they carry a variety of styles and colors, but they are effortlessly beautiful without breaking the bank.


This Cherry Blossom Bliss Printed Mint A-Line Dress is a classic and chic choice for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. It’s formal but not stuffy, the print is elegant but still fresh, and the colors work for a winter, spring, or summer event. Plus, A-Line dresses are universally flattering! Pair with a shimmering metallic or matching pink heel for an extra pop!


If you’re looking for a little more va-va-voom for a romantically set rehearsal dinner, this Camille Lace Pencil Dress in Yellow is a total show stopper, especially when worn with a scarlet heel and lip. The vingrant yellow is a natural choice for a spring or summer wedding, and the silhouette is sexy but not over-the-top.


Many rehearsal dinners and bridal showers are held at upscale venues where a longer dress is more appropriate. This Overcast Floral Print Chiffon Belted Designer Maxi Dress will keep you feeling ethereally fashion-forward and fun despite the formal setting. Pair with statement earrings in unexpected clashing metals like bronze and pewter to show off the beautiful neckline and play with the color contrast in this winning gown.

 The Expertly Embroidered Mesh Strapless Dress in Pink Coral can pull double duty as a shower or rehearsal dinner dress, especially if it’s a bohemian-chic affair. The color and tiered lace detail of the dress can be dressed up and down with an embroidered belt or a draping necklaces, depending on your style and formality of the event.


The roaring 20s are back and better than ever when you wear this Golden Twenties Beaded and Sequin Dress. This dress would be dynamite for either a Gatsby or retro themed shower or dinner, but would also be appropriate over the holidays or just when you’re feeling extra fabulous (which should be all of the time!)

CapsleevelacedressjadeIf you need a dress ASAP for a winter or early spring wedding bridal shower or rehearsal dinner, the Capsleeve Lace Top Dress with Contrast Ribbon Overlay in Jade is here to save the day. This dress is a gorgeous vintage number, and would be an especially memorable pick for a Christmas-themed affair. Pair with deep hues of marsala and burgundy for an unexpected and luxe take on styling.
