I am trying to find a good rehearsal dinner dress. It is a challenge. Especially since I thought we were doing fairly casual attire, and then my FH’s family went and got nice dresses for it! His teenage niece is wearing a cocktail dress and his mother decided her original wedding dress wasn’t quite fancy enough for the ceremony, so she’d just wear it to the rehearsal dinner. Don’t they know that just raises the bar for me? I’m kidding. Well kind of.
So I’m trying to find something sort of fancy, and in the white, ivory, or champagne color family. Everything I keep finding that I like in my price range (trying to stay under $300) is really similar in the bodice to my wedding dress. I mean glad to know I really love the style of my wedding dress, but I feel like I’m supposed to be like reserving that look for the big day. Am I just over thinking this, or do other people have this concern that their rehearsal dinner dress shouldn’t be too similar to their wedding dress?

Also if you have suggestions for a great place to find less expensive fancy plus size dresses, I’m all ears!
