    DH didn’t see mine– It was a Banana Republic ivory silk dress with blue flowers!

    Can we see yours? I bet it’s AMAZING!

    My rehearsal dress was the same as my shower dress. I didn’t see a reason to buy 2 new short white dresses.

    I’ve worn mine before to an event I went to with FI, so yes, he’s seen it. We also will be spendng most of that day together and leaving for the rehearsal together so yes, he’ll see it. My FI also figured out which dress I bought cause I left the receipt on the table (oops) but he hasn’t seen ME in my wedding dress and that’s what counts.

    I am wearing jeans or a dress I already own for rehearsal.

    I didn’t keep my dress a secret, but I didn’t advertise it either.  It wasn’t white (wanted to reserve that for the actual bridal gown).  We didn’t coordinate our outfits either.  I really don’t think most people care if you coordinate, but to each their own!

    I’m not buying a new dress, just wearing something from my wardrobe.

    @toothfairy910:  I love that dress!  The colors are so soft!  Haha, i had to ask DH what he wore to the rehearsal (I knew it was slacks and a polo but didn’t remember what color polo)!  :-p

    There are no rules. It doesn’t have to be a dress. It doesn’t have to be white. It doesn’t have to be a surprise.
