Men have super powers when it comes to getting women undressed. Don’t worry. He can do it.

Hahahaha. I’ve been wondering the same thing. The dress I’m considering has tons of teeny tiny buttons. I don’t think there’s much we can do about it. Just hope that he doesn’t rip them off in frustration o_o

I would suggest having someone you trust help you our of your dress and you could change into a ‘going away’ outfit at the end of the night. My Mom had to do this back in the day at her wedding…her Mom helped her change in the bridal suite at the end of the night (I think she changed into a royal blue flowered dress…nice, but nothing special). My Grandmother took the wedding dress home with her, and my parents went to where they were staying the night.

Don’t worry, he can figure it out. They can easily be undone with a bobby pin. But if the loops just cover the zipper I suppose you can have her do it. Honestly, you’re going to be so excited and having a great time you don’t want to stress about getting that done!

My husband figured it out. We had a good 10-minute laugh fest while he was trying and that just made it better ๐Ÿ˜œ

I agree that men have super powers! I had a pair of button up jeans that I could barely button up (the button holes were wayyy too tight) but Fiance had those things unbuttoned within seconds lol. I like the idea of having the buttons undone before you leave. If they are. It functional, I assume there is also a zipper that will keep you covered. No one will even notice.

It took both my mom and my sister quite a few minutes to button mine up in the beginning of the day in a fully lit room.  My husband got them off much faster in a dark hotel room.  (We weren’t even rushing for sex, I just wanted to get out of the dress.)  They could definitely have loosened up throughout the day, but I didn’t even think about it potentially being a challenge and it wasn’t.

I needed my buttons done up with a crochet hook too, but my DH had no trouble getting them undone. They’re a lot easier to undo than to button up. Plus if they’re not structurally important, you probably only need to get a handful undone to get to the rest of the dress. (Mine was zipper and then a strap inside the bodice).

kooshball5 :  I told Fiance that he’d have buttons to contend with on the Wedding Night and I was informed that he just wouldn’t bother taking it off me then… lol!

In all seriousness though, he’ll manage. They’re not so difficult for men because they have shorter nails than we do, and the loops will have stretched slightly from being worn all day.

I’m sure he’ll manage ๐Ÿ™‚

Takes much less time and skill to undo them than to fasten them in the first place. My DH managed with no problems and also managed to dig 24 pins out of my hair!
