Well, since your Fiance is requesting it I would say do as he asks.  It would make for awesome pictures.

I say go with it.  You’ll fit – and the pics will be adorable.  Plus, there’s no harm in the upgrade possibility.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Just have someone start the car before and crank the AC! Give it five or ten minutes before you make your grand exit.

I say you should go with it.  I had the same request…I am worried about getting all that dress in the 75 Mustang we will be leaving in, but hey….it will be FABULOUS!

It will fit.  Leaving in your wedding attire is the norm these days.

I want to put on a classic 60’s suit. I think. I dunno. maybe something little and sassy for the afterparty. :p

Lots of crazy underwears underneath, though.

Since he hasn’t asked for much, I say go for it!

I haven’t bought my dress yet, so I don’t know about comfort, etc. But my attitude is, if I spent $____ on a wedding dress, I’m going to get my money’s worth!

I am not doing a getaway dress.  I love my dress and want to wear it as long as possible.

The photo op is completely worth it, IMO.

I am also planning on wear my dress as long as possible! We will already have our hotel room so an upgrade isn’t in the cards, but that’s a bonus!!

I intend to. I’ve never heard of or seen the bride changing into a separate dress for the reception except Asian brides. Especially since the wedding day is the only time you will get to wear your dress, and they aren’t cheap, so it only makes sense to me to wear the one dress as long as you possibly can. But do what works for you.

I want to keep mine on as long as possible because I love the dress. I do think the pictures will be cute as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Go with it!

They ask so little of us and it really is a simple request and as soon as you get to the hotel room it can come off ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t know I agree that if he really wants it, you should do that for him, but I am sooo with 50footbride with a classic vintage-y suit.  That would look so classy, and I just love the idea, it’s kinda a throw back to traveling clothes back in the day, and if you could even pin a small veil in your hair, and it would look cool in pics and get the point across to the hotel people, too.

I think if he really wants it, go with it! 

If it’s something that’ll be really impossible, you could just do it for the pictures, go back & change to another white dress & get out of there! ๐Ÿ™‚
