I purchased a beautiful chocolate taffeta dress, but now it will be in a private home, so I will pick something cute, casual, and comfortable!

I'm wearing a knee- length Ralph Lauren fitted cream dress. I have 3 inch slate gray heels to wear with it! I wanted to look like a hip bride-to-be. I'm ALWAYS in jeans and I never really dress up. So not only is this make over it's my transformation into being the HOT wife. Lol. Being cute at your rehearsal dinner is more than a great chance to stand out.

Formal - old Prom dresses, really? Has anyone ever worn an old Prom dress to a rehearsal dinner? That just seems like too much to me. Dress up but not too dressy.

Your mom's wedding dress?  Seriously?  That seems a little over the top, IMO

The fun thing about weddings in general and rehearsal dinners specifically (since that's what this article is about) is that each girl can create her own style and look. That's part of the fun and excitement. Everyone's style is different and what works for some may not work for others. To each her own! : )

I actually am wearing a bridesmaid dress for my rehersal dinner, lol! But you can't tell, I ordered it in ivory & its just above the knee, super cute & pretty casual. I'm wearing it with with nude color shoes. I was having a hard time picking what to wear & the woman at the store that I bought my wedding dress at made the suggestion of finding a cute bridesmaid dress & ordering ivory. I'm only nervous that it will be windy because our dinner is on a rooftop & the dress is short & flowy...

I haven't even gotten started on that yet. I am bugging FI to tell me where it is so I can start shopping and planning.

I think we'll go with the casual attire, after all, we are decorating the church just before the rehearsal.  I'd hate for someone to teeter off their high heels and break an ankle the night before our wedding.

We don't have rehearsal dinners in Australia. As we're have a DIY WEDDING WE'll be up at the venue getting decorations sorted, our minister will join us to run through where to stand & then we'll probably grab take away for dinner. Who needs the extra stress of looking right the night before the big day?

I bought my girls T-shirts with their names and what spot they will be (ie MOH, BM. FG) so we are wearing those with jeans. We have a lot of decorating to do so we want to be comfy.

This was not really helpful at all -- how about some pics of dresses, outfits, good places to shop, ideas for accessorizing different types of dresses.... instead of just generic paragraphs about types of rehearsal dinners?
