1) Engagement Party
2) Bridal Shower
3) Bachelorette Party
4) Rehearsal Dinner
Did you wear white/ivory to any/all of the above?
What did you wear the day AFTER your wedding (to brunch, goodbye breakfast, etc)? Did you keep with the white/ivory theme or did you wear a different color?

I’m not sure yet what i’m wearing to the events. Interested to see what everyone else did!

If I can find ivory dresses I like, I’ll be wearing them to all (with the exception of the small family brunch shower that is supplementing the big shower). I don’t think I will the day after, though.

1) Engagement Party – wore silver cocktail dress
2) Not having a shower
3) Joint bachelor/bachelerotte party – debating between white dress and a champagne dress
4) Rehearsal – Might wear a sundress (non white)
Day after – In my culture we have a “next day” wedding so I got a 2nd wedding dress that is much simpler than my actual wedding dress. Typically this dress is white/ivory but mine will be blush.

Bees, help me understand this: is it a tradition to wear white on all those occasions before the wedding????????????
I would do the complete opposite and not wear ivory or white, just to be different from the wedding gown…

I don’t know that it’s a tradition, but my guess is most girls don’t typically wear white so being a bride, you want to milk it for all it’s worth.

@Frukaj: Your 2nd dress is gorgeous!
Also, this exactly:
“most girls don’t typically wear white so being a bride, you want to milk it for all it’s worth”

I haven’t decided but I need to. My shower is on Saturday! I’m either going to wear a white dress with bright flowers on it, or blue/white skirt. For the rehearsal I’ll probably wear a white dress and definitely for post-reception and morning gift opening.

I didn’t wear any solid white/ivory, but my rehearsal dinner dress is a black and while floral print.

I would have liked to wear white to my shower, but I couldn’t find a dress I liked. I ended up only wearing white to the rehearsal dinner.

The only one I am likely not wearing white/ivory/cream to is my bachelorette. Gonna try for red on that one. =)
