    Another issue is your DH’s tux is probably hired, so needs to be returned in the next couple of days.

    I did the 2nd option: changed at the reception and left my dress for my sister to take home. Darling Husband did the same for his tux.

    If you wear it to the honeymoon suite (which is nice and romantic) then you’ll probably need someone to pick it up the next day. We didn’t want any interruptions the next morning 🙂 which is why we changed at the reception venue.

    Definitely talk to the hotel and see that they can do! It’s okay to check in in your wedding dress haha I think it would be kind of fun actually :). I’d worry that you’d both be so exhausted thstop stopping at the apartment might be kind of annoying!

    Brany an extra garment bag for your dress & his tux & leave it with the bellman. Shouldn’t be a problem. Just call ahead & confirm.

    You only get to be a bride once (mostly) so milk it! Check into the hotel in your dress, and then have the front desk store it for your mom to pick up the next day.

    We checked into our hotel in all of our wedding garb. We stayed at the airport hotel that night, so we got to leave our car at the hotel in the AM. We left the dress in the car and my husband’s parents graciously offered to come pick up the car, my dress, and my husband’s tux (which needed to be returned to Men’s Wearhouse!).

    Both nights, I went to the hotel in my full wedding attire.  And picture this: I am a white american girl, and the first night I was wearing a silk saree with a lot of beading, massive amounts of jewelry, I had fake hair sewn in, and was wearing no shoes.  The second night I was wearing my wedding dress.

    I didn’t have any wierd glances, but we did have several people congratulate us.  The first night, some visitors from India asked to take pictures of us and I let them!  =)  I thought it was funny.

    get your pictures, then change at the reception site and leave your dress with family.  Or, stop enroute.
