    First off, the campfire sounds like a lot of fun!!

    But I would be totally worried the entire time about my dress getting dirty/catching fire/etc. I think it would completely appropriate and cute to wear a second more casual dress!

    I would change, it’s just not worth ruining your dress. And you want to be able to relax and not worry about it.

    Your dress is beautiful!

    Yeah. I would live in fear of a spark landing on my dress setting it on fire. Also, fires are really dirty, so unless you don’t care about your dress after you’ve walked down the aisle, I would change.

    Well just remember too that campfires smell! So all of that smell would get onto your dress as well!

    As much as you love your dress you are going to be ready to get out of it by the end of the night and will feel so much more relaxed and comfortable in normal clothes!

    I would try to find a simplier dress for this. My cousin has a down on the farm keg after party and she purchased a white eyelet sundress and a cardigan in her bridal colors (yellow). She attached a smaller veil to her head to still look bridal. Though you won’t ever wear your dress again you could pass it on to a bride who is struggling financially or save it for your grandkids. 🙂

    Normally I would say wear the dress all night, but if doing a campfire I agree with PP change into something else. There is so much could go wrong with wearing a wedding dress at a campfire. From it getting dirty to accidently spark flying on it and catching on fire
