No, not at all! I’ve seen lots of floral/colorful/non-bridaly rehearsal dresses! Wear what you’re comfortable and happy in!

Heck no! I doubt I’m wearing a “bridey” dress. I just want something cute.

I think you can wear whatever you want and everyone will know you’re still the bride! Go with whatever feels right.

You can wear whatever you want to the rehearsal and dinner following. Every rehearsal I have attended, the bride wore a tshirt and jeans.

I’m wearing red too!  I’m Chinese, but I’m having a traditional American wedding, so I figured a red dress for the rehearsal would be a nice nod to my heritage.

I wore chocolate brown (one of my wedding colors) taffeta from j. crew.  I think for some brides, the occasion to wear more than one white dress is great, but I also like the whole *saving the bridal look* for THE day.

Oh no you don’t have to wear white. My SIL wore a bright blue dress which was the colors of the wedding. I’m wearing a dress that fads from white to grey to black.  I almost bought an all black dress.

I hope not, because mine is not bridal at ALL.

I’m wearing a white dress because I really want to, but it’s not for everyone. I’m just milking it!

I love the idea of saving the white dress for the wedding and since I am having a very traditional wedding (white dress, all white bouquet, veil, etc.), I figured that the rehearsal dinner was the perfect time to wear something more colorful and vibrant. In my opinion, as long as you feel beautiful in what you are wearing, the color isn’t going to matter, so wear whatever you love! You can’t go wrong, you’re the bride!

I’m wearing a hot pink cocktail dress! 🙂 No white gowns for me! That’s what the wedding day is for.
