I may have one with the family. It sounds like a lovely idea!

We had one at our hotel where we stayed (the hotel offered it free to the guests). I wore what I had planned on wearing on the plane, which was just a really simple flowy dress that I got from old navy for $25. It was a nice quick pull-on too since I was exhausted. I wore it with a little sweater and flip-flops. I don’t think anyone really expected for me to get super dressed the next day, but I still looked nice and like we were headed to a tropical island ๐Ÿ™‚ Here it is on another day actually

I’m thinking about having one too. I’ll probably wear a cute dress like the one I’m wearing for my engagement pics.

FMIL is hosting a casual, drop-in “continental breakfast” the morning after the wedding at her house–a very generous offer and addition to the festivities.

In all honesty, I know I’m going to be exhuasted and not want to wear another pretty dress…unless I can convince FI we should wear our wedding outfits again ๐Ÿ˜‰  I’ll probably go in jeans and a sweater.

@mwitter80: how was the breakfast at the hotel? I’m thinking about just telling everyone to go to that one and saving $$$$ since the budget is air tight at this point. lol

@BunnyBrideToBe: i am so the opposite. A dress is so much easier for me than jeans. Not sure why… I’m weird. lol

@basketballwifetobe: Where is that dress from? I love love love it!!!

We are having a casual get together at my parents house just pastries, coffee, that sort of thing. Just kind of a place for our out of town guests to start their day and regroup and not feel like oh the wedding is over and now you’re totally on your own. We purposely delayed our honeymoon one day so we could spend that last day with our out of town guests. I will probably just wear a sundress that I already own. Since I live out of town nobody has seen many of my clothes in person anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep! My parents threw one for us, it was awesome! I didn’t dress up because I had also spent the morning helping to load up our rental truck with stuff from the wedding and supervising the rental company doing their removal from the site. It was super casual at a tiny little bakery cafe. No one put much fuss into getting dressed for it, believe me! LOL!

@sit1010: I ordered it from Jessica London. If you go to Avenue.com they are selling her line now. She has a few dresses that I really liked. I chose this one because I am hoping and praying that the draping on it hides a few problems areas… lol

My parents are going to host one for out-of-town guests at one of the hotels.  They mentioned yesterday that they’re thinking about having Mexican food.  No clue what I’m going to wear!  Maybe something similar to the dress that basketballwifetobe posted (plus a cute sweater and tights…  January is cold).

We had it at a local restaurant, so it was very casual. I was glad, I didn’t want to deal with dressing up the morning after the wedding. I would just wear whatever is most comfortable.

@basketballwifetobe:  In the summer, I’m all about a sundress, maybe a cardigan, and sandals = go…in the winter, though, dresses seem more complicated since I’d have to plan how to keep warm.  We’re getting married in December so it’ll probably be pretty cold, and then I’d have to think about sleeve length and/or cardigan, tights or something to keep the legs warm, etc.  I have Raynaud’s so I’m always thinking about “what if I’m cold?!” ๐Ÿ™‚
