I feel lost in that I’ve been engaged and blog reading for 10 months and never have I seen an answer for this question.
How will you get the wedding dress off at the end of the night? Mine like many have very intricate zippers, loops, straps, strings, hooks, corsets and buttons. Is your new (probably slightly buzzed) groom suppose to figure this out back in the hotel room?
Would it be weird for someone else to undress you other than your groom? What about those really cool jumping on the bed photos I’d die for?
Has anyone else worried about this?

Definitely the groom that is helping me. I look forward to that potentially clumsy, giddy, exhausted time at the end of the night. But then again, we’ve always been more comfortable with helping each other get dressed/undressed than I am with bridesmaids, etc.

I’m cheating, im wearing a bespoke corset that i will make sure is front fastening! and a skirt that my mum will be making, so one easy zipper at the back!

im not worried about my dress so much as i am about the corset bra top that will be under it. the thing is almost like a traditional corset, with ribbons and pulls trings and hooks and thingies… i cant even get it ON by myself – i feel like scarlet o’hara! lol
but yeah i have no idea. i figure he can figure it out, or im sleeping in it LOL

Ummm this seems like an odd thing to worry about. My new hubby will take it off. Dont worry, mine has all those things too with the zippers and string that kinda lace like shoe laces but then kinda not and I’m not worried about it. It might take him a little while to get it off but thats just more anticipation for him! lol.
Dont sweat the small stuff, its going to turn out fine girly! =)

I think it will be fun to figure out with your groom. I have thought about this a little bit. It might be a little awkward, but probably fun and funny!

Mine’s easy enough to get off myself if I contort my arms just the right way.
What if you planned to change into a second outfit just before the big show of running off in the getaway car? Especially if you’re going to have a destination honeymoon, it might look cool if you both donned your shorts and flip flops for everyone to see just before leaving the reception. That would give them something to talk about haha!
This might not be so romantic, you could just have your MOH meet you in a dressing room (perhaps her hotel room if she has one?) just after the getaway to change from your dress to something more comfortable, and then go to your buzzed honey in the hotel room.

LOL I was just reading the other responses. They have a point – he’s not getting anything until he gets the dress off, so he’ll figure it out!

i guess i never really thought about it ( i haven’t bought my dress though so not sure how complicated it will be)
i think your new hubby could figure it out. and like others have said maybe it would be kind of funny / awkward and a cute lil memory between you two!

FI has threatened to rip mine off so I’m more worried about the destruction of my precious wedding dress than anything else! lol. Don’t stress about it. If it’s complicated I’m sure it will lead to more giggles than frustration. Have fun!

A giant pair of shears, and a few giant cuts down the back?

My sister helped me … and I changed into “something more comfortable” for him to take off … wink, wink. haha.
But seriously, if you don’t think he can handle it – I knew my husband would take forever to undo all the buttons – get some fun lingeire (sp?) and change into that and a robe – and then when you see him you can take off the robe and bam! he’ll be a happy man! 🙂
