The Best of 2023: Rehearsal Dinner Style in the Rocky Mountains

Feature image: Tippy Jordan

A rehearsal dinner is a chance to spend extra quality time with your very favorite people before the big day.  But – it can also be another chance to show off your style!  All of our Rocky Mountain couples look good at all of their wedding events of course, but we picked our top 16 favorite looks from rehearsal dinners across the Rockies in 2023 to show off today.  Scroll through for some outfit inspo for your last dinner before becoming newlyweds!

One: Western in White

Western wedding wear is where it’s at!  Jess and Drew dressed to the nines in a different way for their rehearsal dinner in Red Lodge, Montana.  We love Jess’s little dress from Adeirlina and her white bridal hat from Anthropologie.  Drew didn’t disappoint either – with his contrasting black hat and little black ascot to tie it all together.   See more of their style – and their guests’ Southwest style! – in our National 2023 issue.

Two: Belts & Beige

Sofia & Guillermo said “I Do” in Vail Valley, and dined in style the night before.  The couple opted for “sophisticated western” outfits for their al fresco rehearsal dinner under the twirling lights. We love how Guillermo dressed up denim with beige elements, but love Sofia’s chocolate brown belt that matches her hat & boots even more!  See more style inspo for S&G’s rehearsal dinner on their wedding blog here.

Three: The *Edge* of the Southwest

Gracie’s little black leather romper with its’ tassels and embroidery matches perfectly with her boots for an edgy western look!  Roonie brought his southwestern A-game too with a turquoise-stone bolo tie. It’s obvious why these two’s New Mexico rehearsal dinner outfits made our favorites list, but check out more photos to see for yourself in our National 2023 issue.

Four: Sequins in Sun Valley

Jen stunned in Sun Valley in a floor length, sequined skirt – with a slit that showed off her cute strappy heels – for her and Ben’s rehearsal dinner.  Ben’s blue blazer, boots, and bolo tie is giving great from inspo for the night before, too.  Check out more of this couple’s sparkling style in our Sun Valley Wedding Guide.

Five: Orange Ombre

Maggie and Brady made our list for obvious reasons – and we owe most of it to the bride’s awesome ombre orange dress from Zimmermann. The two-piece number with ruffle sleeves and multiple shades of sunset colors looked stunning in the Wyoming summertime, especially when accessorized by a gorgeous matching stone bracelet.  Her groom brought it too, with a patterned blazer and classic cowboy hat.  See more shots of their stylish rehearsal dinner fits in our 2023 Wyoming magazine!

Six: High Neck in the High West

Suzanne & Alex wed in the Wasatch mountains of Park City, Utah.  This fun Rocky Mountain city has a downtown full of great local spots to take your guests the night before, and S&A chose a western saloon & distillery for their rehearsal dining.  The pair looked straight out of an old western movie, especially with Suzanne’s high neck lace gown with fun sleeves and white boots.  Check out more of their classic country style in our Utah Fall/Winter 2023 issue.

Seven: A Feather in our Rocky Mountain Cap

Adele didn’t hold back before her wedding, and she stunned in a ruffled midi satin dress and custom, personalized hat that housed her initials (and a pink feather in her cap!).  We love her groom, Derek’s, tucked boot look and bolo tie, too.  Find more fashion inspo from these two in our Utah Spring/Summer 2023 issue.

Eight: Fit for a Party

Jacqueline’s party fit is just too fun, with her cut bridal blazer tied together with tassels.  She and John were “just married” in dreamy Vail, and both showed up in stylish suits the night before.  Browse through our Colorado Spring/Summer 2023 issue for a better look at this vibe.

Nine: A Suit that Slays

Yes we said it, this rehearsal dinner suit absolutely slays!  Thanks to this stylish styled shoot put together by Our Jonrah Events, we wish we all owned a sparkly, white, feathery , crop-top/skirt suit now.  The groom’s suspenders and bowties looked so fun for the “night before”, too!  Flip through our Canada Fall/Winter 2023 issue to find more fit photos like this one.

Ten: Big Bows in New Mexico

Angela & Richard said their vows in Santa Fe, and dined & danced with their favorite people the night before, al fresco on the rooftop at the Eldorado Hotel.  The mountain views were pretty, but this couple was even prettier, with his green, textured plaid blazer and her bridal mini with the biggest bow!  See more sophisticated southwestern style inspo from A&R in our New Mexico 2023 issue.

Eleven: Bolos Before Vows

We love Lauren’s look for her rehearsal dinner, from the fringe to the hat to the gemstones in her lashes.  When you’re planning on dressing up the next day, why not wear an extra fun outfit for the night before?!  She & her groom Garrett looked too cute in their denim to dine with their favorite people.  Don’t miss more from L&G’s rehearsal dinner in our Wyoming 2023 issue.

Twelve: A Bubble in Bloom

Sydney stunned in Sun Valley in a bubble mini that was too fun and floral for us to capture in words.  This bubbly bride and her groom, Logan, took advantage of the warm summer weather in Idaho to show off some style before the big day.  See more of her incredible, creative bridal mini in our National 2023 issue.

Thirteen: His & Hers Hats

You can’t go wrong with matching hats for the bride & groom!  This styled shoot in Snowmass showed us how to style “western” for a rehearsal dinner, with a touch of fringe, cowboy boots, and of course – a bolo tie for the groom.  See more of this favorite in our Colorado Fall/Winter 2023 issue.

Fourteen: A *Wild* Accessory

Hannah & Milan posed in their rehearsal dinner outfits with horses on this majestic Montana ranch.  The pair brought even more beauty to Bozeman with a more casual dinner look, and we love the groom’s fun button up!  See more of this style list topper in our Montana 2023 issue.

Fifteen: Classy in Colorado

Bailey and Paul didn’t take their rehearsal dinner too casually, and the two looked incredible in classic black and white.  Bailey’s two-piece bridal pantsuit from Nadine Merabi had the perfect amount of fun feathers & sparkle to show her personal style before the big day.  See more from before they said “I do” in our Colorado 2023 issue.

Sixteen: A Chic Short Dress

Lindsey & Patrick said “I Do” in snow-capped Aspen, but stayed in for a stylish rehearsal dinner downtown the night before.  They brought their A-game to the Aspen Art Museum, and stood out amongst the art in these outfits.  We love Lindsey’s little white dress, with a not-so-little bow that made a statement as she took the stairs. See more of this stylish look on the couple’s wedding blog here.
