@peachacid:  Congratulations!  These pictures are adorable, and I love that hairpiece!

Your advice makes me a little nervous, to be honest.  I’m a total jeans and a t-shirt and/or hoodie kind of girl, and I rarely dress up.  In some ways I like dressing up because it makes me feel more attractive (maybe because I then actually bother to put some makeup on?), but I’ve been a little nervous when thinking about wearing a wedding gown for like 8 or 9 hours.  

On the plus side, I chose a dress that isn’t heavy at all and has enough structure in the top that I won’t have to worry about it falling down or sliding out of place (it’s strapless).  Fingers crossed that I don’t have the “I need jeans NOW!!!” feeling.  It’s awesome that you were able to leave for a bit to change into something more comfortable, though.

@peachacid:  We’ll definitely avoid the issue of heat (which is one of the main reasons we wanted to get married in November).  My fiance and I both get hot very easily, so we’ll have to talk with the coordinator to ensure the temperature is comfortable for us inside (without freezing everyone else out, of course!).  

I love my dress, and I honestly can’t imagine changing out of it.  I’m also too cheap to pick up a second outfit for the reception!  Haha.

I’m 100% set on wearing flats throughout the ceremony and reception, though, despite being very short.  I’d be a lot more concerned for my comfort (and probably my safety since I’d likely trip and fall!) if I chose to wear heels.  At least my dress isn’t super tight … If I’d chosen a mermaid dress, I think I’d have to change.

@peachacid:  congratulations! And you look super cute. 

 

@angelinthesnowxo:  I was set on flats too (I’m 5’2).  But I got really cute 2″ Latin ballroom heels and am surprised how comfortable they are since I don’t normally wear heels. The ankle strap holds my foot in and the soles are leather, so they flex with my foot. Cheap too, $20.
