We didn’t ask anyone to wear something specific–we were already asking the wedding party to dress in very specific outfits for the wedding day, and it’s not like we had photographers at the rehearsal.  Everyone just wore cocktail/business attire, since we went to a nice restaurant afterwards.

oh gosh, no.  I’ve never even heard of that. (whatever happened to YOUR DAY—singular?!?!?)

We didn’t but I have been to an all white graduation luncheon and it was fun.

Ive never heard of that either, seems like a little much in my opinion.

I just told them “church appropriate.”

My then-fiance showed up wearing a polo, nice shorts, and…sneakers. I cringed, but really, it was the night before my wedding. What did I care?

I won’t be requesting anything specific.  I would be a little turned off if someone told me specifically what to wear (i.e. something other than “church appropriate/business casual, etc.).

Although I did find it funny when my sister’s bridesman showed up in jeans, saw us in our casual dresses and said “No one told me it was a dress rehearsal!”  Yeah.  No matching or big white dresses in sight.

Nope. We will all be in jeans because we are bowling afterwards 🙂

Mine can wear whatever they want – unless it’s pajamas, a t-shirt that’s offensive or has holes, or something you wouldn’t wear out of the house in the fall. Church appropriate is a good way of putting it.

I hope this doesn’t sound mean, but I don’t see why you would want to have everybody color-coordinated for the rehearsal. Are they expecting that photos would be taken? If they go out afterwards, people might think they are in a “uniform.”
