I am sooo confused !
So my FI and I are having our wedding on friday night and will leave to go to a hotel near the airport since we will be leaving early in the morning on saturday.
I would like to leave the reception in my wedding dress and my FI and I will be dropped off at the hotel.
My question is, Who should or would pick up my wedding dress after I leave for the honeymoon?
Also Would I load my packed luggage to the car when I leaving?
It is kinda weird for me have any of my family pick it up because then they know what has happend to the dress on the night of the wedding if you know what I mean..lol
Any thoughts or suggestions?

What is going to happen to your dress on the wedding night? You’re that messy!?
I would just ask your mom or if you have any siblings. Whoever is your MOH should be willing to help out.

@moonSSo91: Will you wearing your dress DURING the activities you allude to? That’s a new one for me.
Either way, ask the hotel you sre staying at if they have a luggage room you can store a suitcase in and have your family come pick up your stuff on Saturday.

Opps, I didn’t mean to have you guys think it that way.. lol
Of course I would have my wedding dress off during that time.
However I just don’t like anyone in my family to think that the dress was taken off by my FI and that we had a beautiful night together. I dont know I guess I am just too senstivie when the subject comes to that..lol

Pack your luggage no later than the day before your wedding, and have your fiance go check in earlier in the day (if possible) and leave the luggage in your room. Then it’s there for you to grab on Saturday morning, and you won’t have to worry about it. Or, most hotels will hold luggage for you the day you check in, so just have someone drop it off in advance that day and they can hold it until you arrive that night.
Can your mom, your MOH, or a bridesmaid pick it up the day after? Take the dress off before you *ahem get started* and then it won’t get messy hehe. I know you said it’d be weird for family to pick it up, but honestly, you’re getting married – they probably expect it to happen on your wedding night 🙂
Don’t stress about it – it’ll all work out.

I’m pretty sure everyone expects you and your husband to have sex on your wedding night. No one is going to be shocked. But even more, no one is going to be thinking about it while seeing your wedding dress.

First off, don’t get busy in the dress. Change into lingerie instead.
You can ask the hotel if they will hold on to the dress until a friend or family member can pick it up the next morning, but they may not want to because of liability reasons.
Your other option is to change out of the dress before you leave the reception. I know you don’t want to, but that might be the only way this can work.

@moonSSo91: Ignore my comments about the dress – I get what you mean now.
Seriously though, nobody in your family is going to be thinking about it that way. Whoever comes to pick it up will probably be thinking “ok now I have to get this in my car and make sure I don’t drop it or let it touch the ground” or something like that 🙂

@moonSSo91: You’re way overthinking it. I can’t imagine why that would be the first thing to come into any of your family members’ minds upon seeing the dress. I’m sure they’d instead be remembering what a great time they had and how beautiful you looked in the dress, unless the wedding night issue has been discussed before for some reason.
Inversely, do you think they’d be thinking that all day during your wedding, knowing that’s what’ll be happening that night? I sure hope not.

I guess I am overthinking this whole thing. haha ;p
But I would definitely call the hotel that FI and I will be staying to see if I can bring the luggage in a day before and also leave my dress there so somebody can pick it up. 🙂

When my FI’s brother got married they had the same plan as you- hotel right after the reception before their flight in the AM. They had the limo driver take them back home before the hotel to pickup their luggage & leave their formal wear there. We just went to their house the next day and grabbed his tux to take back to the rental place & I hung her dress up for her since it was all crumpled on the bed… Easy Peasy, and we never even thought about what went on that night…
