@blushingbrooklynbride:  I am! The only white/ivory dresses I am planning to wear are my ceremony gown and (maybe) my bridal shower dress. I love bold colours/designs, and I never really bought into the “wear white for every wedding-related event” mentality.

That blue dress is gorgeous; J Crew has lovely clothing. I love how it can easily be incorporated into your everyday wardrobe.

yeah! I’ve got a dark blue halter dress with bright yellow lemons on it! its a short-long deal.  Didn’t even think about a white dress actually… oh well, too late now!

@blushingbrooklynbride:  Same here! I don’t usually wear white… so buying another white dress I’ll never wear again seemed wasteful.

I ordered this dress from The Limited for another event, but once it arrived I loved it! Think I’m going to wear it to our rehearsal dinner.

I wore a black cocktail dress to my rehearsal dinner.  None of my other close friends wore white to hers either.

I haven’t picked anything out yet but I think I will choose something that is colorful.

Ok I might sound wedding ignorant by asking this, but since when is dressing up for your rehearsal a requirement?  I mean cant we wear whatever we want, like jeans for example?  lol  Is it tradition to dress up?

@MrsRight:  I love this dress, but the reviews on their website aren’t very good. Does it fit really right under your arms because that’s what the reviews are saying? Just wondering thanks!

@FutureMrsJohnston:  You can wear whatever you want to your RD. I am having a formal RD, so my dress/gown will be formal. I’ve also been to really casual RDs where the bride wore jeans and a nice top. It’s all up to you! 😀

Btw, that was in no way an ignorant question since the level of dress is set by the hosts anyway (i.e. you/parents).

Nope! Just going to wear one of my sundresses. I never heard of dressing up for rehearsals until I came on WB. It simply isn’t done in our circle.
