hi farmersdaughter!  if i’m not mistaken, you’re also an NC bride like me, right?

you’ve prompted me to think about a getaway dress for myself now!   since we’re going right out with our friends afterward, i’m sure i’ll need something other than my very sparkly big white dress to wear to local establishments. 

another thing to ponder!

I’ve seen both.  If you are having an actual send-off it might be nice.  The purpose behind the getaway dress or suit was that couples used to have earlier receptions and then jet off to their honeymoon flight.  The getaway outfit served its purpose of you looking fabulous but ready to travel.

I have a getaway dress for the NEXT day.  My parents are having post-wedding Memorial Day BBQ, and I’m wearing a white dress with rhinestone buttons, and we are leaving right from it to the airport.  I have a white pillbox hat I’m considering too, but that might be too costumey.

I do think getaway dresses are a good and fun idea. I like this one
