Untie it? They aren’t that incompetent, I guarantee–they’ll figure it out! If you have teeny little buttons, you probably want to bring a crochet hook with you. The promise of sex with their new wife awaits; that’ll be motivation enough to figure out how to undo the dress.

@ribbons: I don’t doubt it! However, eeewww! So much better to be clean – less self concsious = much more fun! I’d rather get sweaty together than present myself that way!

- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
My dress just has a zipper, so I can probably get out of it myself. And then I’ll probably pass out.
What can I say? I know us , and after a day of partying and cocktails, we’ll be ready for sleep more than we’ll be ready for wedding night lovin’.

My mom is going to help me get out of my dress right before we leave, besides if you wear your dress to the hotel doesn’t that mean you have to take it on your honeymoon? I want to change into something more comfy and leave the dress with my mom! Also hubby will change out of tux and leave it with his best man to return the next day.

mine was simple to get off, so i did it myself. my husband had to go get something that i left in the other hotel room, and when he was gone i “made myself more comfortable.”
i think it would be fine to have someone else help you get your dress off, or have him help.

Ask your Fiance if he is comfortable unzipping your dress. If he is afraid he will ruin the dress while removing it, then change at the reception. I watched Khloe Kardashians wedding and she changed before the reception was over. She wore a cute jumpsuit that had Mrs. Odem on the back in crystals. I thought about doing this, but I asked my fiance and he said he wanted to take off my dress because that was how he imagined his wedding night.

I was wondering this, too! Mine has about 100 buttons up the back. The bridal salon said that if we can’t get them undone at the end of the night, just to snip them with scissors. I’d prefer not to, so we’ll try to just get them undone ourselves.

I was sort of hoping my new husband would take it off with his teeth. 😉

for those of you with real buttons up the back (no way my husband and his guy-sized fingers was going to be able to undo those)—-crochet hook. The bridal shop recommended having one to do UP the button and their loops, and so I made sure we had one at the end of the night to undo them, too.

I’ve wondered this too. I’m pretty sure this is why traditionally there were “going away outfits.”

oh! i hadn’t thought about that… i guess Fiance will have to learn how to get me out of a corset. At least there won’t be any drinking at our wedding, so he’ll be all together and stuff.

Well, mine was just a zipper. I could’ve done it myself, but I asked my DH anyway! 🙂
With all the corsets, buttons, zippers, etc.. I don’t think anyone will have a hard time getting it off. But that’s just my opinion 😉
