@HelloKittyEsq:  I’m not married yet, so I don’t have any experience there. But, I am going to wear my dress ALL DAY. I think it’ll probably be fine, depending on your dress. What type of fabric is it? I just climbed a mountain in a wedding-ish dress yesterday, and I think that it looked great in the pictures even after all we put it through. Your photographer will be able to make it look beautiful.

Encore bride here…I rode in the limo to the church in my dress and there were no issues. The limo driver is used to helping get women in and out of the limo in huge gowns..take your time getting in, smooth it under you and sit, it will be fine! 🙂

If you are that worried, see if anyone has a little hand held steamer to freshen up the dress once you get there…

I chose to get hair and makeup done at the hotel, then put my gown on at the ceremony location.  I was concerned that the cathedral length train would get wrinkled if I sat in it or if it were bustled.

@HelloKittyEsq:  SO PRETTY. THE DRESS. I just died for a second there.

My dress has lots of little tulle layers on the skirt and my ceremony site is about 35 minutes from my parents’ house, where I’ll be getting ready. I’m not putting on my dress till we get to the church. The “getting ready” room is pretty – stone walls, stained glass window – so I’ll get some pics with my girls in there. Getting ready at home will be hair and airbrush makeup – I wouldn’t wear my dress for that anyway!
