As far as bridal attire goes, it's the wedding dress that gets the majority of the attention (as it should), but there are other things to think about, e.g., your rehearsal dinner dress. The evening before the main event is usually more relaxed, so you can have a little more fun here. Many brides choose to stick with white or blush, but others choose to think outside the box a bit.

The most important factor when it comes to your rehearsal dinner dress is that it's special enough to stand out, even if other attendees are wearing the same color or style. Since few rules apply when it comes to choosing the perfect rehearsal dinner dress, it can be a bit overwhelming, so we took the initiative and found 21 dresses that would suit the momentous occasion beautifully.
