- Wedding: August 2010
This is my first time writing a post on Weddingbee! My wedding is in August, but I am a huge planner and have already bought three or four possible dresses for the rehearsal dinner. Those that I don’t wear for the dinner I will likely wear to showers and other events. Most recently, I purchased a dress, ended up hating it, and went to return it only to find that the store only does exchanges. I ended up buying a beautiful Maxi dress instead (because I couldn’t find anything else I liked in the store), and I would really love to be able to wear this for something, but I just don’t know if Maxi dresses are appropriate for bridal showers and/or rehearsal dinners. I’m hoping it will maybe work out for the rehearsal dinner, which is at a semi-casual restaurant in Cincinnati. The dress has spaghetti straps and is a flowy chiffon fabric with a water color-type effect in various shades of blues, turquoises, and greens. It’s somewhat beachy, but also very elegant and quite attractive on. Any thoughts? Are Maxi dresses appropriate for rehearsal dinners?
