My dress has a tie back with a couple snaps. I’ll just let my FH figure it out πŸ˜‰

Excellent question!

I picked up my dress last weekend and they advised me to get my mum or one of my BMs to undo all the little buttons at the end of the night, because it might be too intricate for The Guy to figure out, especially if he’s had a couple drinks. There will still be the ziper holding the dress up though, so it’s not like the whole back will be undone!

My dress ONLY has a corset, thank god, so though Fiance might be a little clumsy with it, I think he should be fine getting it off, I mean, he has laced shoes before.  But all this is assuming I haven’t collapsed under the weight of my dress at my reception and changed into something else before it’s over (which I really don’t want to do, but it might just have to happen).

Good question!  Mine has all those damn buttons on the back!  Though truthfully, we’ve already decided (and were told) that we’ll be too exhausted/buzzed to do anything that night, so new hubby will likely just be cranky trying to undo all those buttons. 

Maybe I’ll need to enlist my Maid/Matron of Honor to help me unbutton….

I think I have it pretty easy compared to some of the other responses lol. My dress is a zipper back. A single zipper. I think my guy will be able to figure it out πŸ™‚

It’s not like my wedding dress will be the first thing that is somewhat hard to get off.  Let’s give our guys more credit than that!!  I’m sure they will all figure it out.

My dress is a corset and I don’t think it will be too hard for him to figure out. But if all else fails, we will probably ask my Mama to help (because we may change at my parent’s house and head to the airport right after).

My friend got me out of my dress at a point during the night where we wanted to go out for drinks, and although I loved my wedding dress, I had had enough attention for the day! πŸ™‚

So I changed into a very sassy little red dress for the last drinks, then went to my room and took a shower and while my husband was taking his shower, I put on my “after-party” outfit – he had to figure out that one!

Now, out of the subject, but some of your posts made me think about this… This may be sooo  un-romantic, but for those of you who think their husbands will take the dress off and then, make love to you… you might want to hit “pause” and go take a shower first. You will have spent all day running around and eating and drinking and dancing in a dress that will be warm. You will sweat and not feel so fresh.

Just a thought…

Oh, I have TOTALLY thought about this already.  My Fiance can barely get my bra off–if I had to rely on him to unfasten each of those little buttons that go half-way down the back of my dress, in a possibly-drunken state no less!!, I would be sleeping in my wedding gown.  So, I will be changing at the reception and my mom or friends will be able to help me unfasten my dress.  I am planning on wearing my dress through the entire reception, for the most part, so I will probably just change into another dress shortly before we leave.  

Also, as a plus, having that dress there will also allow me to change earlier than that if my wedding dress is more uncomfortable/constraining than I imagined.  It’s not going to be a super fancy dress–something I already own unless I come across some bad a$$ and not super expensive re-wearable dress before my wedding day.

It sounds like your gown is really complicated.  You could always change into your going away outfit… or a short party dress at the end of the night if you are planning an after party.    (Preplan to have your bridesmaids or your mom help… and let your guy know that it’s just a girl thing…)  I knew of a girl whose new groom insisted on watching this and it was just an awkward thing for the bridesmaids involved…  Actually, I think if it’s a situation that the groom needs to give his tux to the Bridesmaid or Best Man to return to the rental company….then plan to have him get changed at the same time…

I undressed myself.  Honestly, I didn’t think it would be that romantic having him take my dress off.

My fiance and I just talked about this the other night. Obviously if you’re getting married, even if it’s difficult and he struggles with it, you should be comfortable enough with each other to let it go and be it frustrating, have a good laugh. Sometimes he gets stuck taking my bra off and we just laugh it off!

I decided I wanted him to take the wedding dress off – and I have a zipper, inner corset and crinoline underneath so it will be a little more effort but it will be fun. I told him we have the rest of the honeymoon for me to wear the fun stuff πŸ™‚
