So I had a thought.
Before I bought My Dress, I was shopping places like The Limited online. TL had a lovely dress at one point that I wanted to try, but it went out of stock before I seriously considered dress shopping.
Now they’ve got another one I like. I’m thinking about getting it for the rehearsal dinner, if I can score a good deal/coupon combo. But… I don’t know… is it ok to wear even a casual-type wedding dress to the rehearsal dinner? Could I just treat it as a white dress?
Part of me wants to save the surprise, and part of me wants to live up the whole weekend because I’m the bride. 🙂

I’m wearing a white sundress for the rehearsal dinner as well as a white sundress for the morning after brunch. Live it up all weekend!

Hmmm…I love a white dress for the Rehearsal Dinner but I don’t love the idea of a full blown wedding dress. I think I would have to see it to give an honest opinion.

Totally go for it!! I”m planning to do something similar – I thought I was going to get a big flowy dress for my wedding dress, but ended up getting a trumpet dress, so I’m using the rehearsal dinner as my excuse to wear a big ol’ white floofy circle-skirted dress at about knee length – not quite the same, but close!

How many times do you get to look like a “bride” in your lifetime? Not too many, I’d wager. So go for it! Life is short. Wear whatever you’d like. It’s YOUR rehearsal!

I’m wearing a white dress to our Rehearsal Dinner. It’s a short wedding dress from DB!
I can party in this dress! And I’m using it in our day after/TTD session!

Do it! Why not?! It would be cute and really let people who don’t know you know you are the bride or at least someone important. I wore a white ish dress to mine, it had other colos but the main color white.

@atalante: How wedding dress-y is it? If it’s fairly casual, I think you’d be fine. A friend of mine wore a white bridesmaid dress to her Rehearsal Dinner.
By the way, my wedding dress is from The Limited so I can vouch for the quality of their dresses. Even the packaging is gorgeous.
