What is going to happen to your dress on the wedding night? You’re that messy!?

I would just ask your mom or if you have any siblings. Whoever is your Maid/Matron of Honor should be willing to help out.

@moonSSo91:  Will you wearing your dress DURING the activities you allude to?  That’s a new one for me.

Either way, ask the hotel you sre staying at if they have a luggage room you can store a suitcase in and have your family come pick up your stuff on Saturday.

Pack your luggage no later than the day before your wedding, and have your fiance go check in earlier in the day (if possible) and leave the luggage in your room. Then it’s there for you to grab on Saturday morning, and you won’t have to worry about it. Or, most hotels will hold luggage for you the day you check in, so just have someone drop it off in advance that day and they can hold it until you arrive that night.

Can your mom, your Maid/Matron of Honor, or a bridesmaid pick it up the day after? Take the dress off before you *ahem get started* and then it won’t get messy hehe. I know you said it’d be weird for family to pick it up, but honestly, you’re getting married – they probably expect it to happen on your wedding night ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t stress about it – it’ll all work out.

I’m pretty sure everyone expects you and your husband to have sex on your wedding night. No one is going to be shocked. But even more, no one is going to be thinking about it while seeing your wedding dress.

First off, don’t get busy in the dressTongue Out.  Change into lingerie instead.  

You can ask the hotel if they will hold on to the dress until a friend or family member can pick it up the next morning, but they may not want to because of liability reasons.  

Your other option is to change out of the dress before you leave the reception.  I know you don’t want to, but that might be the only way this can work.

@moonSSo91:  Ignore my comments about the dress – I get what you mean now.

Seriously though, nobody in your family is going to be thinking about it that way. Whoever comes to pick it up will probably be thinking “ok now I have to get this in my car and make sure I don’t drop it or let it touch the ground” or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚

@moonSSo91:  You’re way overthinking it.  I can’t imagine why that would be the first thing to come into any of your family members’ minds upon seeing the dress.  I’m sure they’d instead be remembering what a great time they had and how beautiful you looked in the dress, unless the wedding night issue has been discussed before for some reason.

Inversely, do you think they’d be thinking that all day during your wedding, knowing that’s what’ll be happening that night?  I sure hope not.

When my FI’s brother got married they had the same plan as you- hotel right after the reception before their flight in the AM. They had the limo driver take them back home before the hotel to pickup their luggage & leave their formal wear there. We just went to their house the next day and grabbed his tux to take back to the rental place & I hung her dress up for her since it was all crumpled on the bed… Easy Peasy, and we never even thought about what went on that night…
