lol Now before anyone thinks that this is a silly question, Im asking for those who do not have a wedding in a venue in a Hotel. My wedding will be done somewhere else– and we want to book a room for 2 nights after the wedding. Im not sure exactly what I should do regarding my wedding dress.. Do we go home first and change? Then go book a room- Or is it normal to see a bride walking in a hotel in her wedding dress- if her wedding is not in the hotel? Obviously, I havent really stayed in many hotels to see.. So hopefully you guys can help me out 🙂

Totally fine. I plan on going back to the hotel in my dress. If anything, people will just congratulate/compliment you. No one will think it’s weird.
ETA: Yes I agree with others, book your room ahead of time.

Pre-book your room before your wedding. And Yes it is totally normal to show up at the hotel in your wedding dress! Our reception is not in a hotel, but we found a hotel near by that will shuttle guests / the groom and I to and from the reception site to the hotel. So I will be one of those people walking into a hotel in my wedding dress! 🙂

@Mrsgurzakovic: i had my wedding night in a completely different town than our wedding. we left our wedding venue and went straight to the hotel we were staying at. i loved walking in the hotel with my dress and got so many “you look gorgeous” or “congratulations!” and fun stuff like that. just go in your dress. you’ll be thankful you did!

Many couples stay ina hotel overnight after the wedding. You do not have to change first.
Book the room ahead, or you may not have one. Have someone take your suitcase to the hotel ahead of the wedding. The hotel will store it for you, then have a bellman take it to the room when it is ready. Make sure they know it is your wedding night. Most hotels give free upgrades or champagne to wedding couples.

I definitely walked into the hotel and hung out with guests in the hotel bar in my wedding dress. I loved getting all of the congratulations, and I was only wearing that dress once! I wanted to get as much use out of it as possible!!!

I plan to walk around in my dress…I also plan to go out to the bars for our after party with my dress on! I want to wear it as much as possible, and who knows, maybe get some free drinks!

I wore my wedding dress to our hotel & we got a free upgrade to a gorgeous beautiful suite (it wasn’t being used that night)! We didn’t even ask for an upgrade. Plus, everyone we walked by smiled & most said congrats! It was kinda fun :). I told DH next time we go on a trip, I should wear my dress so we can get another upgraded room haha.

I am getting ready in our hotel suite then going to the wedding (on the beach outside of that hotel) then back to the hotel in my dress. If I did decide to change though we live a block away. I don’t have any intention of going to our house after the wedding and reception though.

We’re going out dancing after the wedding and I plan on wearing my dress the entire time. So I say you can wear your dress wherever you want to.
