I’m wearing a BCBG champagne-colored strapless cocktail dress. It’s jersey and has lots of gathers.

Would it be bad to wear a black dress? I bought a really nice one with red accents. I notice most brides are wearing something whiteish to the rehearsal dinner. Is this the norm?

Our Rehearsal Dinner is for everyone and will be a BBQ in a tent with a bluegrass band at a "fun center" where guests will get vouchers for mini golf, go karts, etc (i.e. very casual). I am planning to don whatever sun dress suits me when I start browsing in spring. The wedding will be pretty formal, so I am glad to have a casual night. It does seem like a lot of people wear white, but I am going to skip it because I am very pale and look terrible in white:( I am envious of those of you with the complexions to pull it off:)

You can wear whatever you want! I didn’t choose the champagne color on purpose for the reason I am the bride; the dress was on sale but still expensive, and to justify buying it I decided I would wear it to the Rehearsal Dinner. Otherwise I probably would have wound up in my kelly green strapless J Crew sundress.

I think the rehersal dinner is a chance to really let loose  – or wear something that may have some significance to your guy.

Since my fiance really wanted all the guys to wear kilts and it got vetoed (by everyone – not just me!), he’s wearing that kilt to the rehersal dinner.  I’m surprising him by wearing a tartan mini skirt (ie catholic school or field hockey skirt).  Maybe my bridesmaids will join in —er, maybe not!

I’m wearing a black chiffon dress with a beautiful beading gathered in the bust area.  Eh..I may be a bit overdressed but I’m the bride!  So it’s ok!  🙂  I don’t expect others to dress up…

We were having a very casual pizza party/rehearsal dinner in one of the small banquet rooms at the hotel. I’d had a tank top made for me and matching sweatshirts made for the both of us on cafe press. So, I wore a kakhi linen skirt I’ve had forever and knew would be comfy, my "Irish Bride" tank top, and my zip up hoody that had our wedding logo on it. On the back mine said, "The Future Mrs. Husband’s Name", on the back of his pull over sweatshirt was "The Future Mr. My Name". They were adorable and totally the casual options were were looking for.

I don’t think there are any "rules" on what you should wear. I think it has a lot to do with what you’re comfortable in and what will make you feel special. And as someone else pointed out, what you’d like to use the wedding as an excuse to purchase. 😉 I think black is beautiful and I’ve seen many a friends wear black coctail dresses to their rehearsal dinner.

And pinwheelpoprocks, I love that your fiance is wearing a kilt! I totally tried to get my husband and his groomsmen to wear them, but I got veto’d. He said he didn’t want his lily white legs to blind everyone at the ceremony. Hehe. If you look online, you may be able to find a women’s kilt made in his family tartan!

I am wearing a white white Tory Burch sheath dress.  I really wanted to wear white/ivory and had been having a hard time finding something since we are getting married 11/1.  I think you can wear whatever your heart desires.  I definitely will be a little too dressy for ours but this day only happens once!

 A coral/red strapless dress from Anthropologie….  I know most people go the white route, but I figured if I’m wearing a big ol’ champagne colored dress the next day I would rather throw some color into the night before!  Plus, I’ll be able to recycle this dress to any upcoming weddings unlike a white one.
