It’s totally traditional to change into something at the end of the night, as if you’re taking off on your honeymoon–even if most people today stay put the night of the wedding.  My mom had an adorable getaway dress for her wedding, and I’ve always wanted something like that (although budget may force me to shop in my closet, heh.)  If your wedding dress has a vintage feel, how about looking in a vintage clothing shop for a dress, or even a cute traveling suit?  You might find a good bargain that way.

I personally love the Jcrew linen silk tussah rosette dress.  Very classic.  It’s about $200 on ebay right now, though.

I love the idea of a get a way dress– however most of us have such tight timelines at the reception that being away from our guests for the last half hour of the reception to change out of the wedding dress, freshen up and put on another outfit to say our goodbyes just won’t happen. 

I think if you had an open ended reception site it would work.

And I like the idea of a white suit… like in the old doris day movies.

the David’s Bridal $99 sale is almost over…I got a lace dress on clearance for Newport News…I probably won’t wear it again, but it was so affordable, and I found a free shipping code online…maybe I’ll wear it on our anniversary…I’ve also seen some cute stuff on ebay, and a lot of them have the measurements shown

Macy’s has a really cute white skirt suit for only $80!  I tried to post a link earlier but was having difficulty, so you’ll have to search for it–"Jones New York Three-Button Jacquard Skirt Suit."

Good luck!

I got a really cute dress at JCrew too.  It is a white eyelet material dress that is fairly casual.  It is strapless and I got some cute metallic/bronzish color flip flops to go with it.  We are leaving the next day for St. Lucia so, that helps me get my dress taken care of and me off with only what I need for the honeymoon.
