Q. I am getting married in June of this year and I have no idea what color dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner. Should I wear white since I'm the bride or should I match my dress to the colors of the wedding and bridesmaid dresses? Is there any color you are not supposed to wear??
-Bride to be Best Dressed
A. Don’t fret over matching your dress colors to the colors chosen for the tablecloths and flowers. And skip the idea that you need to wear white two days in a row, unless you find a darling white eyelet dress that you will adore wearing throughout the summer, since I would expect you to wear the rehearsal dress many times in the future. Shop for a spring dress that you adore, fits your body well and don’t worry if it’s a bit dressy, since you are the bride. Here are a few suggestions, that I would wear myself:
