I’m not going to lie I’m super messy! I’ve ruined countless amounts of shirts by spilling food and beverages on them and I don’t want my wedding dress to join those fallen comrades I miss so dearly! I got to thinking about this when I read a post about wine. I LOVE red wine, but the more I drink the more likely I am to spill. Anyways, my man always says I need a bib and I just stumbled on one that says bride on it… I think it might be kind of funny if my bridal party and I randomly pull out bibs during dinner. EVERYONE who has ever eaten with me knows that I almost always spill so I’m sure a lot of people will get the joke, but I want to know what YOU think! Too silly? Good idea?

I think it can be a cute idea – as long as the other girls wear one and as long as you take it off after dinner.

Well, it is a little silly, but I can see the humor. You won’t wear it all night, so it isn’t too crazy.
But don’t get hung up on the bridal party wearing them too. I think it is just fine if you are wearing it alone.

I think its a tuff one.. maybe some people will find it funny others might think its rediculas.. I think in order for you to wear it maybe you should play some kind of game that will require you to wear it.. that way everyone will get a kick out of it and you can wear the bib during your dinner.. Maybe a truth or dare game? something like that? you know what i mean?

haha that’s what I was thinking! My friends and fam will think it’s funny, but I’m thinking some of FI’s side might think I’m insane! A game sounds fun. How would I incorporate that??

OMG I would totally wear one. I spill food/drink on me ALL the time. I actually just ruined a shirt the other night at Olive Garden. If I saw that at a wedding I 1-would think it was funny and laugh 2-be jealous that I didn’t have one bc I probably already dropped salad or an appitizer on my boobs!
You could totally play it up in pictures too. Get all the BM’s to wear theirs and each grab some food and do funny poses like you are dropping the food.
Go for it!!

Maybe I could have my man pretend to give it to me as a gift to tease me and tell everyone I’m a super messy eater. That way they’ll think he’s the weirdo and not me!
@Ms Sassy- I’m glad I’m not alone! And I’m glad you would think it was funny!

I LOVE it!!!! I am like you and always spill on myself – so much so that I am uncomfortable with the whole head table thing and am looking for other options.
I say go for it, it will be funny and memorable 🙂

If you want something a little less obvious than a baby’s bib, look into buttonhole napkins. When air travel was still glamorous, first class cabins would pass them out for use during the flight, and Martha Stewart says they date back to the 1800’s. You could probably make one fairly easily, too.

If you want to wear it, go for it! But I’d advise against making your bridal party wear one. They might feel silly.

Haha, I’ve been thinking about doing this too! I swear I can not make it through a meal without some of it getting on me and since our main dish will be vegetarian BBQ ribs, I’m really really worried about walking around all night with BBQ stains all over my beautiful dress! I like the idea of the buttonhole napkin. It’d still protect your dress, but with less of a screaming “I’m a giant bib!” kind of way.

You know, instead of a bib, how about a clear poncho-type thing? You can claim it’s like those sofa covers everyone’s relatives have, but still won’t let you sit on the stupid couch.
