OK, so heres the thing. There is no way my soon to be hubby is going to be able to get me out of my dress on our wedding night. I mean, he can barely unhook my bra sometimes…LOL.
I bought some wedding night lingerie, but will need help getting out of my dress so I can wear it. Should I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man help me undo my dress? Would I bring her to our room and then, have her send my groom up?
Anyone else have this problem?

That’s good thinking! Maybe you should have a later-in-the-reception/after-party dress, into which you can change sometime during the night.
What makes your dress so hard to get off? Are there buttons?

@peachacid: My dress has a zipper, but it also has a built in bra, so there are lots of hooks, under the zipper. There is also an embellishment that sits around my tailbone area and covers the start of the zipper and it has a very delicate hook to close it.
Hoping some already married ladies might have some insight…lol

I must say, I’d find it very uncomfortable to have a Bridesmaid or Best Man undress me, knowing why she’s undressing me. And I’d probably be uncomfortable as a Bridesmaid or Best Man helping my friend get into her nighties so she can “be” with her new husband. And then someone retrieving your husband because you’re all “dolled” up for him now…ick, so uncomfortable and awkward! Maybe I’m overthinking this…
Honestly, I’d just share the moment of undressing with your husband. It can be funny and a moment to share. Whether I was marrying a guy with all thumbs or nimble fingers, I’d want to have him get me out of my dress, no matter how long it took and how clumsy it’d be.

I guess my family follows an odd tradition.. but right before the reception is over the bride always changes into a ‘going away outfit’ so lukily my Fiance won’t have to worry about getting me out of that thing I’ll just make my Maid/Matron of Honor do it! lol.. plus then I can put my sexy lingerie underneath that new dress/outfit 😀

I think either way is fine. I don’t think it would be that weird to have your Mom or Bridesmaid or Best Man to help unhook some of the harder to get undone parts of your dress.
You don’t have to have them go and retrieve your guy maybe just have them help you do that for a few minutes and have him go and get you something to munch on and champagne it should take just enough time to get you sorta out of the dress then you can have him finish the job. I was really close with bother of my MOH/BM so I wouldn’t have felt uncomfortable having them help me out of my dress. I mean truthfully everyone knows what is going to happen that night anyway right. LOL.
But I can also see you having your hubby help you out and just be patient with him while he figures it would. But you know him best if you don’t think he will be able to do it I think I would rather be safe and have it partially undone than not be able to get out of it and have to send my hubby out to find someone for help. I think that would be more awkward. LOL.
But, I didn’t know it was that big of a deal for a guy but mine just mentioned how he was a little upset that I didn’t let him take me out of my dress (I was dying and couldn’t wait for him to park the car and come back in haha) so you never know he might be looking forward to that moment.
