    While I understand where your worry is coming from I have to admit that…if I was at a wedding and saw the bride wearing an apron I would laugh and yes I would think it is weird. I totally understand that you don’t want to get something on your dress but do you really need an apron? A napkin on your lap and super small bites should do the trick. When you say you “practice” how you eat what happens that makes you think you need the apron? Have your mom or MOH pack a tide to go pen or something in case of an accident. I really think that no matter how nice the apron is it will look out of place.

    Hmmmm I’d practice more with the food you’ll have at your wedding. Bring some cloth napkins that match the color of your dress and have your MOH or someone inspect you after dinner. Bring cleaning supplies as mentioned in the post above.

    WOW, I understand where you’re coming from, but please don’t wear an apron. People will remember that about your wedding. Is that what you want them to remember?

    What’s wrong with remembering that from a wedding?  It’s a cute touch, quirky.  I wouldn’t wear an apron but I don’t usually get things on myself.

    Partially its also that I’m doing my pics before dinner so I’m not super worried about what happens during the reception.

    I completely understand!  I am always spilling things on myself and would be very distressed if I dropped something.  I actually think it could be quite cute 🙂  Whatever floats your boat!

    I say go for it! Don’t worry about when you take pictures, there will be pics all night! And probably some of you in your apron! Everyone knows me and what a klutz I am so, if it were me, they would think it was totally fitting! I think the apron is a cute idea! I mean, there are tons of cute aprons out there!

    I also do not see anything wrong with the idea. I think it is a little quirky but if I were at a wedding and saw that the bride was wearing an apron during the dinner I would laugh and think it was cute in an endearing kind of way especially if this is a friend or relative of mine. I would guess that most of the people you will have at your wedding already know you and know your personality and your humor and I’m guessing you wanting to wear an apron during your dinner would not be too unlike “you”… that would be my guess anyway. I say, if that’s what you want to do, do it! Weddings are supposed to by fun and it is supposed to be your (and your groom’s) day! 😀

    We just recently got our wedding pictures, and some of my favorites were actually taken while we were eating (at a sweetheart table, so it was kind of intimate – just the two of us).  Don’t get me wrong – our photographers did an amazing job and all the pictures were great, but these were unexpected because we didn’t realize they were being taken.  Having said all of that, I wouldn’t wear an apron because looking at the pictures, we might actually frame one or two of them and I think an apron would be distracting.  

    Also, we had pictures before the ceremony and I actually had a few stains on my dress from being outdoors.  I didn’t notice any of them in pictures though.
