    I think it should be okay, especially with a colored shoe and a cardigan or some jewelry, etc.

    I think the issue is more if it looks like a wedding dress, and it definitely doesn’t. Nobody will be confusing you with her, so go for it!

    My rule of thumb: if you have to ask if the bride would be a offended, find something else. I, personally, don’t think this would be a problem for me, but I could imagine other brides being ruffled by this dress. I wouldn’t want to risk that, so I’d just choose something else to wear.

    I think they’re both cute.  I love yellow, personally.

    Have fun and don’t worry about how you look all night!

    @Wildflowers:  i actually really like the yellow better regardless of the wearing white issue.

    I’d suggest checking it with the bride.  Since I’m not wearing white for my rehearsal dinner, I’d prefer that my bridesmaids also wear a color, but if I was wearing an all white dress I wouldn’t mind a white and black print.

    Ask the bride- I wouldn’t have any issues with it (I’m only wearing white/ivory to the wedding, not to the shower or RD), but some people are really picky about it.

    That yellow dress is so cute! The black and white one was adorable, but I definitely think the yellow one is more fun!

    Wear the dress you like!  It’s the rehearsal dinner not the wedding, she gets one day to wear white/ivory.  Besides, that’s a black and white dress not a white dress.
