Tomorrow we are driving 7 hours and going to a rehearsal dinner. The Rehearsal Dinner is at a steak/seafood restaurant. Would it be OK to wear jeans to the RD? We are not in the wedding party but FH is an usher and it’s a close family member’s wedding. I was going to wear jeans and a cute sweater. FH will wear jeans and a polo. Does this sound OK? Or should we dress up more?

Personally, I would probably dress up more.

Personally, I would dress up more. I think jeans are a little too casual.

I’ve been to a couple of RDs and I wore a comfy but cute dress to one and a nice tee and khakis to another. I wouldn’t wear jeans, personally.

Like PP’s have said, I would dress up a little more. Smart black jeans with heels might be ok but definitely not blue demin – in my opinion.

I think jeans are fine normally, but most steakhouses tend to be a bit more formal so even the staff will be wearing dress pants, ties, etrc. So I would dress up.

I would dress up more than just jeans. Maybe wear jeans in the car while you drive and then change at the last rest stop before you get there, so you’re comfortable for most of the trip but still look nice for the rehersal dinner!

I wouldn’t ever wear jeans and I’d probably be quite annoyed if someone came to my wedding in a pair. I wear jeans to the supermarket…I just think there should be more effort made for a wedding….

Honestly before I came to the bee I had no idea people dressed up so much for the rehearsal dinner. We’ve always just worn nice normal clothes at the weddings I’ve been at lol.

It depends how fancy the seafood/steakhouse is. If say like Red Lobster go for the jeans, if something along the lines of fancier then yeah dress up. Personally I would wear jeans…

I think if you wore a dark wash with a nice sweater wouldn’t look bad at all. Just like sassygrn said, if it’s that kind of restaurant that’s fine.

Is the rehearsal immediately before the dinner? Is the rehearsal in a church? That makes a difference, too.

I would ask the bride and groom. See what their preference is. You just wouldn’t want to show up in jeans if everyone else is going to be dressed up.
