I do like the tradition, but I don’t think I’m going to have time to find a rehearsal outfit and a leaving the reception outfit….

We stayed at our reception until the end, so I didn’t have an exit outfit.

I didn’t want to take my wedding dress off!  Plus we didn’t do a big “leaving the reception” – we did that after the ceremony.  DH and I were actually some of the last ones to leave the reception!

I kinda plan on wearing my dress to the bar that’s across the street from our reception downtown.  Something about being in a bar in a wedding dress that makes me laugh.  Think I’ll get free drinks?  🙂

I am wearing a going away outfit!  It is a classic tradition that I want to keep going. Here is my dress.  I ordered it from Nordstroms.

We are having a destination wedding and having everyone join us for brunch the next morning, so we’re not going to have a “grand exit”.

I’ve been thinking of doing this. Definitely!

Still haven’t found what I’ll wear, but we’re going for our honeymoon right off and I definitely don’t want to take my wedding dress with me!

Also, going straight to the hotel and don’t want the honeymoon night to be all “hey, here’s my spanx, slip, and strange boned, strapless bra!” Super sexy! lol

This thread has inspired me, I’m off to search for dresses.

OoOoOOh Carrie’s outfit is gorgeous! I definitely like this one as compared to her elaborate ‘peacock hairpiece’ outfit last time.
