    I have attended a number of showers and rehearsal dinners and never once seen a bride wear white to either of those events. Usually she wears something cute she already owns in a flattering color.

    You can wear whatever you want to both the shower and your rehearsal dinner. Smiley smile

    Agree- I’ve never seen a bride wear white to the rehearsal dinner. According to google, basically anything goes. Pastels blues & pinks are popular but wear a color that’s on your color wheel. Magenta is on my color wheel so I’ll probably opt for that.

    You can wear whatever you want! At the rehearsal dinners I’ve attended, the brides have worn white or mostly white attire. It’s up to you, though.

    I don't remember what daughter was planning to wear to the RD, maybe a white dress, but it was POURING all week and the night of the RD was truly awful weather-wise. Daughter ended up wearing dark jeans and a pretty sweater! You can wear whatever you want.

    Wear whatever you want! Out of the 15 or so rehearsal dinners I've attended in the past 3 years, all of the brides have worn white (I also wore a white dress for my own rehearsal dinner) but you can wear anything you'd like

    The bride has worn white to all of the rehearsal dinners that I've been to an can remember what the bride wore, but I don't think it matters. I feel like white looks good on my skin and there are only so many situations in which it's appropriate to a wear a white dress, so I will probably wear one to mine.

    You can wear any color clothes you like. There is no reason to wear white to any shower or RD, or bach. I have occasionally seen print sundresses on a white background in summer, but as often on guests as brides.

    You can where whatever you want. I haven’t seen any brides wear white to their rehearsal dinners on the last few I’ve been to.

    The bride wears whatever she wants to both the rehearsal dinner and the shower.
