- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
What did everyone wear BEFORE they got into the titular wedding dress? Why did you choose that outfit?
I wore my favourite pair of jeans, a plaid short sleeve button down top, Toms and a white zip up hoodie that said “Future Mrs. [my married surname}”. I wore this outfit because it was functional, photogenic and I wouldn’t have to pull anything over my head to change after I got my hair and makeup done.
How about everyone else?

I’ll probably just be in my undies and a robe 😂 My makeup artist is arriving at 10am so I won’t be doing much that morning anyway.

I don’t even remember! And I wore it to our reception b/c we held it before the ceremony. I’m going to have to look back and see if anyone took pics… And I found my husband, who is in a black T-shirt and I can only assume jeans. And a black apron and cowboy hat. He cooked :o) And final answer: cute orange shirt with a petrified coral and silver necklace that I got a coworker’s husband to make me several years ago. Blue jeans. And a brown sweatshirt (it was chilly and rainy). And my perpetual sunglasses, despite the rain. I was also wearing an upside down child in the photo I found, lol.
Yep, we know how to have a wedding in style!

I went running first thing in the morning, so sports leggings and top. Then I showered and got ready in a button-down plaid flannel and knit shorts. There are a TON of pictures of my husband in a t-shirt and PJ pants playing pre-wedding lawn games 🙂

I wore a little green romper tube top thing and a fancy robe.
It was a hot day and I wanted to be as breezy as possible!

I’m going to have to wear regular clothes since we’re going to salons. I haven’t even thought about it, but there shouldn’t be pictures. Probably a baggy t-shirt and shorts. Or leggings. I like my comfies.

I wore a white button up shirt and leggings. I just wanted 1) a shirt I didn’t have to pull over my head and 2) to be comfortable.
My SIL snapped this picture:

I wore white lace yoga pants, a Harley Davidson tank and gold Gucci sandals.
Oh…and a bright purple bra that you could see in all my getting ready pictures and video. I thought I had forgotten to bring a nude bra to the hotel and had nothing else…come to find out my sister was the one who forgot hers and stole mine when I was in the shower.

I wore some printed pants (like lounge pants) with a loose tank top (it had a wide neck that could be lifted over my head without ruining hair/makeup or even shimmied down my body if needed lol). I wanted to be comfortable but also wanted something easy to take off. There weren’t too many photos of me in this outfit, but they came out okay – I didn’t even think of ensuring that the pants and top matched before our photographer rocked up, luckily they did!

cuscotopia : Sure… see my husband really, really wanted to BBQ our meal that day. It was related to his comfort level with all the attention, so I’m not going to put a stop to it. He’s been running the bbq for family events for years. But we also wanted a sunset ceremony, which put us around 7:30 or so. Logistically making people wait for dinner until after that was stupid and doing it just before was also stupid because we didn’t want to be racing around cooking dinner and trying to get dressed all at once. Also absolutely everyone was from out of town, there was a small town very close by with tons to do. So we had the gap to end all gaps. Guests came at noon for the ‘reception’ bbq and we hung out with them for about 3 hours before getting cleaned up and dressed and going out for photos. Guests either hung around with each other (very small, mostly family, everyone got along great) or headed into town or back to their cabins to change clothes (lol, kinda silly but whatever floats their boat) and get a small dinner on their own if they wanted to. Then back for the ceremony, followed by dessert. It was highly unusual but worked out very well in the long run.

We didn’t do any getting ready pictures though- so I just went for function and comfort.

A button down top and leggings. Nothing fancy, I just wanted something comfortable and easy to take off that I wouldn’t be totally embarrassed having pictures in lol.

I wore leggings and a loose “Bride” tank top with a cardigan. It was easy, simple and cute.
