I was thinking of dong white also.  I was wondering the same thing.  My reasoning would be to milk this bride thing as much as possible!  I was thinking a white or very light colored sundress.

Definitely!! You’re the bride, so play up the white all that you can.

In the wisdom of Hollywood’s "27 Dresses"–of course!

Tess wears a cute grecian-looking ivory dress to her rehearsal dinner (the one where Jane/Katherine Heigel goes nuts).  I think it’s adorable and oh-so-bridal.

I think it’s perfectly fine to wear a white dress to the rehearsal dinner.  I just found two adorable dresses by Antonio Melani — one is white, the other is raspberry. I’m planning to wear the raspberry dress for the rehearsal dinner and am going to save the white dress as my "going away dress." But I think it’s totally fine to wear white whenever you feel like it ….. after all, you are the bride!

White’s a great option!  I’m currently debating white versus a splash of color — and I think the winner will be whatever cute dress I find (for the right price!) that fits me well!

I’d say white is just fine so long as its not a floor length formal white gown.

I was thinking of wearing a black dress. LOL Now Im not sure. I’ll have to think about it again.

I’m wearing white and really don’t care what other people think.  I don’t think people will pick up on it since I’m sure that they will probably only be there for the food.

I wore a white dress to both of my showers, I’ll be wearing the same one to my rehearsal dinner. I figure I may as well get good use out of it!!! 🙂

I’m wearing white! My mom has come up with all kinds of wedding etiquette I’d never heard of (solid colored dresses for showers? huh?), but the white dress passed her test for the rehearsal.
