    @IzzyBear:  Wear it, it looks beautiful and I plan on wearing a flashy dress to the rehearsal dinner or even to the bachelorette party.

    It depends where your rehersal dinner is. Ours is going to be a pretty formal event, so I could almost pull something off like that. It’s still probably a bit much for me but youre the bride so no one would think anything of it!

    It depends on how formal your rehearsal dinner is.

    PS I was kind of confused by the poll. I voted “yes” but then realized that yes meant to find a different dress.

    I love that dress! Not too formal at all!!

    Wear whatever you want. It’s the one time when no one is allowed to say you’re overdressed. They’ll feel underdressed! You set the tone, baby. It’s all about whatever you want to wear and everyone else has to follow suit. (pun intended).

    I agree with @MrsWBS and @SoupyCat it’s all about where you are having your dinner

    You’d have to be having a seriously formal rehearsal dinner.

    If your rehearsal dinner is at someplace where most people will be in sport coats, wear it. If your rehearsal dinner is at Outback Steakhouse or the like, I’d opt for something else.

    I’m used to RDs taking place at a decent, but not especially formal restaurant (if not at someone’s home). And in that context, I would definitely think that dress is too much. Is your RD taking place at a reeeeally nice restaurant or similar? I think it’s likely that no one else will be dressed anywhere near your level of formality, and while that may not bother you, it would make me feel a little silly. But it’s up to you! It’s a beautiful dress.

    I think the second option is better for what you are describing.

    I have to say I think the second dress would look you! I love it!! Have you chose yet?
