Depends on how much attention you want to attract.  If you think the attention will be fun, then keep it on.  If you don’t want people looking at your or noticing you, then change.

It’s your wedding day, you can do what you want to.

Go for it! Make sure to pick a super awesome restaurant though! I would personally pick either a restaurant in the hotel you are staying at (they’ll go out of their way to make it special for you) or pick a fun rooftop or garden restaurant where you could get good pics.

Wedding Dresses are meant to be LOVED to death… wear it in good health every second that you can on your Wedding Day !!

Mr TTR & I Eloped… I put my Destination Styled Wedding Dress about an hour before the Ceremony, and wore it all night long.

Just the 2 of us… Saying of Vows on the Beach – Going for a Celebration Drink at the Hotel Bar – Romantic Dinner for 2 at one of our Favourite Restaurants – Nightcap at the Bar on the Beach.

It was awesome !!

As an Encore Bride I give you this tip… DON’T BE SHY… TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR HONEYMOON that it is your Honeymoon… there are usually FREE Perks to be gotten.. be that Hotel Room Upgrades – Free Drinks – Welcome Gifts – Complimentary Desserts – Souvenirs etc.

Weddings & Honeymoons are special BECAUSE… the TWO OF YOU are happy, but also because the Whole World wants to share in “your magic”… rock it !!

Hope this helps,

It doesn’t matter if you look silly (not that you would, although I’m sure it’ll turn heads!), as long as you don’t feel silly then do whatever you want! Smile

Wear the dress as long as you want and wherever you want – I’m getting married in Las Vegas (Wynn Hotel) and I told Fiance that for as much money as I paid for that Pronovias gown, I’m wearing it for 24 HOURS and walking around the Strip all night long lol!!!!!!!!!!!!
