Oo I’m doing one of these too! I was going to wear a dress and treat it as a date with my Fiance. Definitely not a fancy dress, just a casual dinner dress that isn’t quite in the sundress catagory.

Oooh, that’s really pretty. I agree with Monkeyface (fun name, btw!); I would wear a cute dress that’s in between formal and a sundress.

My venue did this as well (although I couldn’t go – my parents went for me).  I’d wear something that you’d wear in an office setting.  Nice slacks and a blouse/sweater, cute dress, etc – ie dressy but certainly not formal.

We’re doing the same type of thing as well. I’ll probably go in ‘date night’ clothes, dressy but not formal or even cocktail. Ours allows you 4 extra guests (for parents or bp members, etc), so it’s part date/part business for us, not so much a romantic night.

Is it bad that I think it would hilarious if you showed up in a wedding dress?

And then acted like, “What? I thought this was a trial run!”

Seriously though, I think you’ll probably run into people in business attire, jeans, cocktail dresses – wear what you’re comfortable in!

My caterer did the same thing. To be perfectly honest until I read your post, I did not look at it like an “event” or a “party” – it was a business transaction to me. A fun one, but still. I was the client, they were the vendor. I wore whatever I would be wearing on a regular day, which was probably jeans and a t-shirt and flip flops.

I went to something similar at my venue.  It was, as a PP said, a business transaction, so I didn’t worry too much.  I went to the tasting straight from work without changing clothes, and my work dress code is pretty relaxed.  I showed up in jeans and a sweater.

PLEASE wear a wedding dress. That would be hilarious.
