Your rehearsal dinner is the precursor to the main event of the weekend. Not only does your rehearsal dress set the tone for your wedding day, but it will likely be the last ensemble you wear before exchanging vows and saying “I do”.
V. Chapman‘s The Violet Dress in Coconut Macaron is romantic and artistic. A seamed bodice with delicate boning lends to the ultimate expression of femininity. While the fitted and flouncy midi dress is reminiscent of the past, it features modern flair coupled with contemporary touches for the bride who appreciates incorporating the old with the new. Often overlooked by the bride’s fashion choices, the groom donned a sharp navy suit and left the top button of his white dress shirt undone creating a sophisticated yet relaxed look at the same time.
To top off the look, closed-toe, embellished slingback heels from Bella Belle offer an elevated feel for a winter weather event. Selecting modern jewelry with a touch of vintage flare adds just the right amount of sparkle and gives it that elegant winter feel.
