Shopping For Rehearsal Dinner Dresses

There's something about weddings that makes you want to just throw all forms of budget out the window. Especially when you are browing the Neiman Marcus resort catalog, start thinking about Rehearsal Dinner dress shopping, and stumble upon such fabulousness as this:

Catherine Malandrino Sambala Dress

Yoana Baraschi Silk Petal-Collar Dress

David Meister Twisted-Waist Jersey Dress

I could always work the "beach-theme" and do a casual-chic dress code and sport this hauteness:

Diane von Furstenberg Jersey Patio Dress

Did I mention I'm having a destination wedding in the Bahamas, making these resort dresses even more perfect? Need I say more or shall I let my Neiman's card do the talking? lol. Juuuuust kidding. I'm trying to pay off credit cards, not run them up. There iiissss always my bonus, though. Hmmm...what to buy? What do you think ladies? What should I get for my rehearsal dinner dress? Should I splurge here? Maybe I should save my splurge money for some nice shoes instead? Although, a dress will be much more wearable...I'll probably be rocking flip flops for shoes.

ooo go with the DVF. how cute is that??? check out the fun dresses at www.Artfulwears.com, too. some of them are really casual but there's a few great party dresses too (and good prices)! Check out the Amethyst Embellished Dress, the fit is so amazing, the screen pic doesn't do it justice....

Hey D--congrats on the upcoming wedding! Destination wedding is the way to go, girl! You're such a good shopper, you'll probably find something as fabulous as the DVF but for less money....that you use on some G. Zanotti's! ;-)

Vintage Bunny said...

Hold it!
I missed the post where you announced that you were getting married !

Shopaholic D said...

Thanks LML!

Hey Candid Cool - I've seen that show - it's pretty good! Yea, maybe I should splurge on something else.

Let's hope so, Beauty411!

Hey Vintage Bunny, that's b/c I didn't! lol...I meant to...but just never quite got around to it. Oops!
