    @Stace126:  well i wouldn’t wear anything that says bride. i have a tank top and some panties that i wore on my wedding day. i’m pregnant right now so i can’t fit into either if i tried, but i don’t see a reason to wear them. i was a bride for one day.

    i have a friend who wears her “mrs. lastname…est. 2010” t-shirt on her anniversary. she and her husband wear their shirts and i don’t see anything wrong with it. but i don’t see a need to wear anything that says “look at me! i’m the bride!” i can see a lot of awkward conversations coming from that conversation piece.

    also, i always believed that newlyweds are newlyweds for the first year of marriage only.

    @Stace126:  I think the hoodie is fine to wear as long as you wish. The bride tanktop would be retired for me after the honeymoon, though. I think you’re a newlywed for a year.

    I think the hoodie is fine to keep wearing but maybe retire the “bride” tank once you’re no longer a newlywed (1 year)

    Good question. I purposefully bought a shirt that said “Wifey” rather than “Bride” because I want to be able to wear it again and again. Likewise, I would wear a “Mrs.” shirt forever. I would only wear the “Bride” shirt leading up to the wedding and maybe on the honeymoon. 

    I say you are a newlywed for a year.

    I think the hoodie is fine, but I wouldn’t wear the bride tank top much past the honeymoon.

    I would say newlyweds for 6 months-1 year, but the bride attire I would not wear at all after the wedding.  If the hoodie is comfortable, wear it around the house.  I wouldn’t wear anything with my name on it in public anyway, regardless if it had a bridal spin or not.

    I agree, anything that says bride on I wouldn’t be wearing out.  Wear it around the house if you like it.

    I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing something in public with my name or other personal details on it, but if someone else is comfortable with it I don’t think that’s weird.

    I think you’re a newlywed for 1 year.  I probably wouldn’t wear the bride stuff though out in public, but that’s just me.

    You’re a newlywed for 1 year and 1 day (or so I’ve heard), and I wouldn’t wear “bride” attire after the honeymoon.  🙂
