Okay so I have the worst luck with posting. All my stuff always seems to disappear??
Anyhow, the other day I was told by my boss that bride’s traditionally wear white to their rehearsal. No big deal either way, I just assumed I’d always wear color.
Well, I found this dress I think I’d really like to order and possibly wear to the rehearsal dinner and it is white. So, me being me, I look into this further and now I see that it is kind of a faux pas to wear white to the rehearsal?!
Gah! I can’t keep up! I do know that I want my rehearsal dinner dress to look a bit different from my wedding gown which is strapless with a sweetheart neckline. Most dresses I own are strapless with a sweetheart neckline so I wanted to find something different so I don’t look the exact same a day later.
This is my dress for the wedding:
I will glam it up quite a bit, but it is a fairly simple dress.
This is the dress I am considering for the rehearsal:
what do you guys think?? Is it different enough???
I am so lost on what to do. I swear my brain has literally turned to mush with all this wedding planning and agonizing over every detail. 🙁 Please help! 🙁

I think your rehearsal dress is adorable! It is definitely different than the wedding gown. No worries there.
Other rehearsal dinners I’ve been to had the bride wearing a cute dress in one of her wedding colors. I wore jeans and a “bride” tank top so what the heck, haha.

you guys don’t think it “outshadows” the wedding dress do you? I am so annoyed with how paranoid I am about this! lol. I feel like a crazy person the closer that the wedding gets!
I love love love my gown but I’m getting all nervous about people liking it and thinking its too plain and whatnot.
I’m a mess. 🙁 I just want to look nice both nights, lol.

Can you find it in another color? I think the dress is adorable!! I personally wouldn’t wear white (I didn’t for engagement pictures either), but I think in pink or something it would be perfect!

@RunnerBride13: I kinda wish it came in pink too, only because that’s my favorite color. It only comes in white. 🙁
It is SO deeply discounted I am very very temped to get it in white… I just don’t understand all this wedding stuff and didn’t know if that was frowned again or odd??
There are reviews of the same dress on modcloth that say the bottom of the dress is see through due to the non-lining (hence the deep discount, I’m sure). This doesn’t bother me because I could just add a slip. I suppose I could add a pink slip for some color but I worry that would look a little odd with the white top.
Ay! I just don’t know what to do. I am so girly but I just don’t understand weddings and I haven’t been to like ANY so I have no idea what brides generally do.

@Sparkle Pony: No way, not frowned upon!!! I just personally don’t want to wear white for the non-wedding wedding events, but a lot of people do!! You could wear a nude slip underneath and that should solve the see-through problem. If you like it, go for it!
If you do really want pink here are some other cute one-shoulders:

I think it’s really cute! I had a quick look online for pink one shoulder dresses and I didn’t see anything at all as cute as this. You’ll look beautiful 🙂

Coming in a bit late here to say A) you don’t HAVE to wear white to your rehearsal; B) it’s totally OK to though if you want to; and C) the white rehearsal dress is totally cute. I think you made the right decision for you, but if you don’t like it in person, I wouldn’t limit your second round pick to just white dresses.

@village_skeptic: nope! I definitely won’t (and didn’t plan to even wear white originally , lol!). I just loved how whimsical this dress was. I am hoping its a winner but if not I’ll probably try to find a cute pink one with straps.
