You can wear whatever color you want!  The Rehearsal Dinner I went to as a Bridesmaid or Best Man at my friends wedding – she wore a pink dress with brown boots.  I am planning on wearing a black dress, myself.  It’s your discretion…and honestly, to your Fiance – any reason is a good reason to dress up =D

I have never heard that you have to wear white to the rehearsal.  Frankly, I prefer saving white for the wedding day.

As for dressing up, we did, but that is our style and we wanted it that way.  I went to a rehearsal once where people were in jeans.  Totally up to you and the hosts.

i’ve actually heard the opposite. most girls take the opportunity to wear a cute dress that isn’t white!  keep in mind the formality of the rehearsal dinner; if you are having a BBQ in your parent’s backyard a white dress isn’t really appropriate.

I dressed up but I didn’t wear white.  I kinda wanted to wear a cute little white dress for the rehearsal but then I didn’t find something I liked in time so I just wore one of my sisters dresses which was dark blue.

Totally depends on you. I’ve been to rehearsals where people dress up, and I’ve been to ones where people wear jeans and sweatshirts. I’ve seen both types in recaps here on WeddingBee too. Whatever fits your style/venue. And you don’t have to wear white unless you want to.

I don’t think you “have” to wear white, but depending on the formality of your wedding, I would think you would dress up :o)

I don’t think the color really matters, and the dress code is different for everyone. I know some people who wear jeans and tshirt to rehearsal, but others go all out.

It’s really up to you all and what you can afford/want.

However, I feel your pain, because my Fiance doesn’t beleive half the things I tell him about weddings.

You definitely do not have to wear white, but a lot of brides do! I wanted a really bright color for mine (pictures below) and wanted something new.  My husband suggested I wear something I have, but didn’t give me a hard time that I wanted something new (and we bought him a new suit, shoes, shirt, etc) I also think that you can dress up or dress down depending on how fancy your rehearsal dinner is. Most females in our bridal party/familywore dresses. The guys either wore suits or dress slacks/shirts.

So what if you want to just buy a dress and that’s why you’re saying you need to dress up?!?! I personally don’t htink it’s completely necessary but dressing up is nice and makes for some fun times! It really sets the mood for a real rehearsal, ya know?

My FH also tried to razz me about buying something cute for the Rehearsal Dinner.  He says it was my excuse to buy something else.  I ignore him.  Plus, our Rehearsal Dinner is a casual cook out at his parents’ so I am praying to GOD that it is too cold to wear a dress outside.

If it makes you feel any better last night my Fiance asked me what time on the Saturday of the wedding did I want to leave for our venue location.  So I said, ‘well we’ll be there on Friday for the rehearsal and stay over’ and he had no idea about a rehearsal or a reherasal dinner!  I’m definitely using it as an excuse to buy a new cute outfit…color to be determined.

You aren’t required to dress up for the rehearsal.  It really depends on your personalities.  We didn’t dress up because we aren’t really dress up people.

I agree that it just depends on the type of Rehearsal Dinner you are having. We are opting for completely casual, pizza and beer type Rehearsal Dinner with board games and karaoke.  So I’ll probably have some cute jeans and a sweater or hoodie, honestly, I love being comfy and I’m gonna spend the entirety of the next day all dolled up. I will probably splurge and buy the outfit, any excuse to shop. I’d say if you want a new dress and it goes with your Rehearsal Dinner I’d say go for it!

I’ve gone to rehersals where everyone’s in shorts and some where everyone’s dressed up.  It usually depends on where the dinner is.  BUT, generally, the bride & groom are a bit more dressed up than everyone else.
