    I’m wearing this dress to my rehearsal dinner. 🙂

    It happens to be in my wedding colors, but even if my theme weren’t blue and ivory, I’d wear it anyway.

    I can’t find a picture of it online because I bought it in like May, but my dress was a printed one, with white, yellow, and brown in it.  It was from Macy’s.  I got sooooo many compliments on it.  I’ll see if I can find a picture..

    @Rubbs:  It helps if you check the label for the designer. They don’t sell my dress anymore so that’s how I found it.

    I personally think white/ivory/cream is best saved for the wedding day. I’d opt for what makes you feel pretty and special.  I wore a purple dress with gold lace over it. Our colors were ivory and yellow.  (I have personally never been in a wedding or to a rehearsal dinner with a bride dressed in white.)

    I will probably wear white, but i am nowhere near picking it out yet! I just think it would be a fun time to wear one of the tea-length, more casual vintage type dresses that I would have loved to wear to the wedding, except that we decided to go more formal.

    I didn’t wear white and I don’t think it is necessary. Wear whatever makes you feel fantastic. We were going to Walt Disney World for our honeymoon so my Maid/Matron of Honor gifted me a lovely pair of ears with a veil which I wore during the rehearsal portion.

    Again it is all about having fun and being comfortable.

    I think I’m going to wear white because it gives me an excuse to shop for another “wedding” dress, after deciding to not go for a reception dress on the day itself :p

    I wore Jeggings and a pink tank top with a black tee shirt under it – ours was a very casual dinner though and we set up chappel and venue all in one day so I wanted to be comfy. I spruceed it up wtih ankle booties-

    They suprised me with a suprised b-party right after as well so it worked great

    here is the only picture I have- but I’m also wearing my lazer tag vest so you can’t tell so much.

    my colors were turquoise/aqua and coral. my dress was white with a pink floral print and pink trim. i didn’t buy it specifically for my rehearsal (i wasn’t even with my husband when i bought it). i found it at a thrift store a few years ago and hadn’t had a chance to wear it, so i figure my rehearsal was as good a time as any.

    I think for the rehearsal dinner anything goes. It can be as fancy and formal or fun and casual as you want it to be. I found a really cute white, mid thigh length lace dress that I thought of getting. But I want to tone up more in my legs before I dare wear a short skirt.I’m really self conscious of my legs and my goal is to feel confident by my wedding.
