i’m putting my dress on around 2:30 or 3:00, and my ceremony isn’t til 6:30.  we’re getting ready at the venue though, and my groom and i are doing photos before the ceremony.  do what makes you feel best… if you want the photos at your mom’s house then go for it, otherwise i vote for comfort!

We got dressed at our venue (synagogue).  First off, we had the hair and make-up person come there, so we were able to get our hair and make-up done before putting the dresses on (less chance of spilling something on the dresses).  Second, it meant we were not going outside and potentially getting the dresses dirty before the ceremony.

i put mine on a while before b/c we had pictures before and a ketubah signing ceremony. but i was staying at the venue so it wasn’t a big deal to get ready there and put it on. my sil had to go to different places, the hotel and venue were in different locations so she waited to put it on when she got there so she wouldn’t do anything to it, and got her hair and makeup done at the hotel. your mom will get lots of family pictures after the ceremony and the limo is still special even if you’re not in a wedding dress.

I am putting my dress on about 1.5 hours before the ceremony, because we are doing pictures before the ceremony. We will be getting ready in a local hotel and when we get to the pretty bride room at my venue I will then put my dress on. I want to get some of those pictures of my dress hanging in the pretty room.

Well my wedding is quite a while off- but my sister got married at 2:00 and was in the dress by 12:15-12:30 (if  I remember correctly) for pictures with the bridal party. 🙂

My ceremony starts at 2:30, make up and hair will start at 10:30 so I’m thinking I will be in my dress around 12:30-1:00 so we can do pictures beforehand with the bridal party.

If your dress is easy to put on and take off (mine is zippered so it’s not like doing 100 buttons up the back or lacing a corset or anything) then you can always throw it on for pictures at your mom’s and take it off after that to “breathe” for the couple hours before the actual ceremony.  I want to wait as long as possible before putting my dress on.  Ideally I’d pack the thing up and put it on after I got to the church like 20 minutes before the ceremony! But that’s not going to happen…

I am so freaked out about this.  I don’t want to be in it any longer than I have to be (aka waiting around in it) but I also don’t want to be running late and rip something.  (I am 10 days away, so I am just worrying about everything at this point!)  I am getting picked up in a limo, just me and the photographer at this point, at 6:45, so I think I will start getting into my dress at 6pm.  Ceremony is at 7.
