I was wondering if there were any other brides who were not going to change out of their wedding dresses at all during the reception. I am on the fence myself. First I love my dress and would probably try to find any excuse to justify wearing it for as long as possible. Second I love the idea of my Fiance and I climbing into our exit vehicle (still to be determined) and arriving at our hotel in the city that night with our wedding garb on. What do you guys plan to do?

I’m definitely not changing!! I love my dress too much to get out of it before I absolutely have to! Plus, Fiance and I aren’t so much leaving as we are walking across the venue to go to our hotel room (it’s a wedding venue and a small hotel), so it’s kind of silly!

I don’t know, it depends on how heavy my dress is! But I’ll probably wear it the whole night- only get to wear one of those suckers once!

It never occurred to me to change. I think it’s a small minority of people who do change, at least in the parts of the US I’ve been to weddings … (Northeast, California, Florida)

We decided to wear out our wedding stuff and I don’t regret it because of the pics, but I do know that uttered “oh my damn, I wish I had gotten a reception dress” more than twice during the reception!!

I’m not changing either. And I doubt we’ll really “exit”, because I plan on partying all. night. long.

I’m not changing. It just seems like a waste to me to buy TWO dresses I’ll only wear once. I’m also not exiting. We will likely even meet up with friends/family in bar after the reception and continue the party. Everyone is from out of town and our families don’t get together often.

I didn’t change. Though it was us pulling into the house that night in our wedding clothes, not a hotel. So romantic lol.

I think I’ll stick it out in the dress all night. I guess I should bring a backup just in case my dress gets annoying. I doubt it will though but I have heard some horror stories about faulty bustles.

The little white dresses that alfred angelo sells are amazing, but i love my dress too darn much to change out of it. @Laylabelle-i bet i will have wished i had changed but since i got my bustle i think ill be a-okay.
I do however want to shorten my dress after i wear it andd im still wondering about that.
So, no, youre not the only one wearing your dress all night long.. i mean its only one day you get to wear it, so keep it on as long as you can!!

I haven’t really thought of what I plan on doing— depends on how much I’ve dropped on the dress, i suppose!! I doubt we’ll have much of a budget for “costume changes”

I’m not sure what I’m doing yet… I’m a little afraid that if I don’t change, I won’t fit in the car at the end of the night. 😉

We didn’t have a fancy limo either. It was just our regular car that we drove every other day! So glamorous!
