The ones I've been involved in have involved going out to a rehearsal dinner afterword in a nice restaurant, so everyone wears their nice "out to dinner at a nice restaurant" clothes. In my day that was a dress, hose, and pumps, but I haven't been to a rehearsal dinner in about 20 years!

All of the wedding rehearsals with dinners I have been to were very informal.  I wore regular clothes - jeans, t-shirt/sweater, etc.  But I live in a fairly casual area.

If I owned sweatpants this would be super helpful. Lol!

 

How do I know if this is casual or fancy? I don't want to over or under dressed.

 

Can you ask the restaurant name and go by that? Or ask someone else going to the event what they are going to wear.

It's been years since I was part of a rehearsal. However, at the time in my area, wedding rehearsals were slightly dressy. If I were going to one tonight I'd throw on a skirt either tights and a sweater (I'm cold and colder weather is coming in) you can also wear slacks and a nice blouse or sweater. I don't think you'll look real out of place if people are more casual than that, but if you wear ripped jeans or sweats and everyone else is dressy you might feel out of place.

Agreeing that it's a great idea to see if the restaurant is fancy or not.

 

I'd wear a dress and heels, but that's about all I have that isn't super-casual.

Every wedding rehearsal I have been to (all my sibs and sibs IL and cousins) seem to have had fancy rehearsal dinners. But I knew because either I knew the restaurant was fancy or I asked my mom, lol. There have been speeches and gifts to bridesmaids and toasts made. But, I should add they were all preludes to fancy large weddings. It was the time for the families of the bride and groom to actually meet before the weddings and it was a bit formal with lots of mingling and introducing etc.

Ugh, I hate invitations that do not hint at a dress code. You can call the venue or the hostess.
