Hummmm…I hadn’t heard that one either. I thought that you shouldn’t wear a white dress…lol

I have heard that the bride isn’t supposed to actually practice at the rehearsal.

I’m wearing a cream/white/tan dress to my rehearsal dinner – just thought it’d be extra bridal of me to wear white – no clue about tradition!

I didn’t know about that one either. I don’t know why but that sounds weird to me.

I do know that your Maid/Matron of Honor or someone close to you is supposed to grab a paper plate from your bridal shower & make holes in it, then tie the ribbons from all the gifts that you receive there and use that for you stand in at the rehearsal.

I’m not sure if that’s a Christian tradition, but it’s how it’s always been done in my family. There were lots of little things I had never even heard of until FSIL’s wedding, but again, they’re mostly secular: the ribbons from the shower make the rehearsal bouquet, etc.

I heard that your not supposed to wear white at the rehearsal, but instead something very colorful because you will be wearing white the next day.  I have heard abotu the ribbons from the shower making the reheearsal bouquet though!

I had heard that recently too, but there are a large number of brides, Christian or not, who don’t wear white to their rehearsal. I’m not wearing white. I’m wearing a floral, strapless, Ann Taylor dress, it does have white in it, but it’s mostly pink, and red florals.

I’m randomly wearing an ivory rehearsal dinner dress (same as *the* dress) but had no idea about this “tradition”. Interesting!
