@navybride0428:  What are you doing after leaving the venue?

If you’re going to some kind of after party I’ve heard a few brides say they want something more comfortable and that makes sense.

But if you’re “just” going to the hotel room with new hubby I don’t see why you’d need to change for a few minutes, unless you’re worried about his ability to get you out of your wedding dress?

If you want to and have the budget, why not?  Maybe it’s a dress you could wear again, say at a fancy dinner on your HM?

@navybride0428:  My daughter decided on an exit dress because they have an hour’s drive (with driver) to their hotel for the start of their honeymoon, they will be leaving from the hotel directly on their honeymoon so didn’t want to take her dress with her.  We choose a dress that she can wear again.  Here is a picture.  It is made by Jasmines Bridal Shop.

I’m having an after party and fully plan on wearing my wedding dress to the bar. When else in your life can you walk into a bar in a wedding dress? I was considering an “exit dress” or “after party” dress but then my dad said it was “badass” to wear my wedding dress and I have to say, I agree. Plus, I don’t want to waste any time changing, I want to spend every second possible with my guests!

@Aussiemum:  Wow, that’s a really pretty dress!  I’d love to see how she actually looks in it.

I would only change if I were going to an after party or leaving directly for the honeymoon – something like that. It seems pretty unnecessary to change for a few minutes just to go back to the hotel.

I have never heard of an exit dress before! One only gets to wear a wedding dress once, it’s staying on my body as long as possible!

Just to clarify, my daughter absolutely loves her wedding dress.  She has been waiting 29 years to wear one and has no intention of taking it off like some girls who have a ceremony dress and then a reception dress.

The reason we got this dress is that she and her FH are leaving the reception in a provided for car and driver, to a hotel room (somewhere secret), and then the next morning are taking a flight for their honeymoon.

So she didn’t want to pack her wedding dress to take on their honeymoon.

I really thing you should do whatever makes you happy, this is your special day.

I’m thinking about getting another dress to change into later in the reception. Those wedding dresses get heavy after awhile!!
