I know this is a dumb question–and a dumb time to be thinking about it–but I’m getting married on Saturday, and it JUST occurred to me:
Am I supposed to wear pantyhose under my dress?
It’s long, and it’s not like anyone’s going to see my legs. I might lift up my dress to show off my gold, sparkly shoes for the photographer, but otherwise I’m pretty well covered up.
I’ve been engaged for 9 months. The wedding is in 3 days. How did I just think of this now?!
So, pantyhose? Yes? No? Help me, bees!

Only if you want them, or you think you might need an extra layer to keep warm.

No. I feel like pantyhose are for older generations (my grandmother and maybe my mom). Thank goodness because they are so uncomfortable! They were definitely a trend that had to go. I don’t wear pantyhose ever.

I didn’t. I had open toed shoes so it wouldn’t look right. And depending where you live, it’s probably warm out and you don’t want to get too hot. Unless it’s necessary to make your shoes more comfy, I’d skip them.

i am not wearing pantyhose, but my wedding is in june, and it will be quite warm by then. i personally hate pantyhose, and feel like it will just give you one more thing to worry about (what if you get a run, you have to bring a replacement pair, etc., etc.). you’ve tried on your dress, you know what it looks like, (meaning, w/o the benefit of pantyhose control top and such), so i would vote to skip it. just make sure to get a pedicure for when you show off your shoes!

It’s a matter of preference. If you want to wear them, wear them. If you don’t, don’t. I think these days most modern brides do not because they don’t normally wear them. I personally only wear hose in the winter when it is really, really cold and I hate to do it then, though I was raised that a proper lady always wears hose : ( I did not wear hose for my wedding last month. My step-mom wanted me to wear them (she’s of that generation). But, I don’t care for them and feel more comfortable without them, so I vote – don’t wear them.

Where are you getting married? The only reason I could see wearing them would be for warmth. Althought chances are you don’t want to have to deal with them sliding down or creating any sort of banding – plus you’ll probably get hot (by the end of our ceremony my hose-free legs were melting).

I would say NO WAY, but that is just my personal opinion because I hate wearing them. I am not going to be wearing pantyhose.

No way, too much… I cant imagine going to the bathroom with my dress more or less panyhose too!

I am not wearing them. They are uncomfortable.
@Jenbee: I was just going to say that too!

I would say if you feel like you need them (more formal look, even out skin tone, what have you) go for it. If you don’t like them or think they are uncomfortable, skip them. No one, but you will know 🙂
