I haven’t been to a lot of weddings in my lifetime – but I have been to 6 or so in the last 5 years since FI and I started dating.
At those rehearsal dinners – I never remember the bride-to-be in white. Ever.
However, I have had several people tell me it is tradtional to wear white to rehearsal dinner.
I don’t care one way or the other or anything and I will just wear whatever I find and happen to like best, but I am curious – *is* it tradition to wear white? What will you wear?
(also – off topic, I WISH that next to the “write post” button there was a “submit post” button right there with it. This is like the 10th time I’ve had to rewrite something because I hit that button instead of scrolling down… doh!)

I’ve heard of brides wearing white to a rehearsal dinner, but, as far as I understand, no, it is not traditional.

I don’t think it’s strictly traditional …
When my sister got married, she wore a white sundress and a red shrug to the RD (red was their main wedding color).
Our main color is green, and I’ll be wearing one of my favorite green dresses (that I already own).

I didn’t wear white to my rehearsal. I thought about it, but I wanted to be able to wear the dress again and white is not a good color on me…except on my wedding day of course! I wore a cute light blue and white striped seersucker dress.

I may wear this for the rehearsal dinner which I own already, but may wear for e-pics or afterparty. It does not have to be white. A lot of brides wear one of their wedding colors for rehearsal, or really any dress they like 🙂

I don’t know if it’s traditional or not, but I’ve only been to one rehearsal dinner where the bride wore white.
We are having a traditional Chinese banquet the night before the wedding, so I will be wearing a red qipao.

I’ve been to 2 rehearsal dinners and neither bride wore white or their wedding colors.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
I’ve heard it’s against tradition for the bride to wear white to any wedding function other than the wedding.
I wore a purple dress.

I don’t usually weae white dresses so I wanted to wear white/ivory to my shower and rehearsal dinner since it was such a special time.

I think you should wear whatever you want!
