If you are of the old school where black is absolutely inappropriate for a wedding, is it also inappropriate to wear black to the rehearsal dinner? The dress I'm considering is a cute and youthful style, but it's definitely black.

I had to go to a wedding a few weeks ago and I was always brought up not to wear black to a wedding as well...so I went out and searched and searched for a different color dress that I could wear. I never found anything I *really* liked so I wound up wearing something that was just okay. Come to find out, I think half of the women there were in black! lol So, I guess things have really modernized and after that, I wouldnt hesitate to wear black to a wedding now.

Yes black is fine for rehearsal dinner, and looks great at semi-formal to formal weddings as well.

I'm sure it's perfectly fine! I do think it varies culturally though. For example, at an Indian wedding, no one really wears black or white (the latter being a funereal color, so that's a no go). The reception is different because it's generally a fancy nighttime affair, but it's still usually all about color.

Well, I'm inclined to agree with all y'all, but after getting negative feedback from SO (it's his sister's wedding), it's a no-go for me this time. The important part being that I went and bought the dress anyway
