1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    You'd think that after standing up in 3 weddings in the past year, I'd know what to wear to a rehearsal dinner--but I've got another one this weekend, and I'm at a loss. I remember wearing a dark sweater, dress trousers, and black Gucci loafers to one of the dinners--is that appropriate? Can it be casual or should it be more formal than the ensemble I wore once before? I think the restaurant is only moderately expensive, if that helps. Thanks.

    My 2¢, as someone about to get hitched: what with everyone getting all dressed up for the wedding itself, the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner should be a somewhat more relaxed affair. However, different couples (and different parents) won't necessarily feel the same way about it. The venue dictates dress to some extent; more critical is what the bride and groom will be wearing. So, you might ask them. Better yet, to spare them one more thing to think about, ask the best man or maid of honor.

    Finally, when in doubt, wear a jacket. Unless the rehearsal dinner is at KFC, you're at no risk of being overdressed.
