Our ceremony is at 10:00, and I'm guessing we'll be finished
with photos by noon. I hate to think I'll be wearing that gorgeous dress for
only two hours! Will any of you with an early ceremony be donning your wedding
attire again for dinner that evening?
Are you not having some kind of meal straight after the photos? Our wedding is at 11, then photos and then we are having a lunch at 2.30. We will be leaving for our honeymoon around 6pm, but I expect to keep my dress on until shortly before we leave.
I think it will be fine if you keep the dress on all day. Is your evening dinner your wedding reception or will it just be you and your new husband? If you don't have anything between the photos and the dinner, then you might want to change out of the dress, just to be comfortable, but then you could change back again for the dinner.
Thank you so much for getting back.
you are right, We have lunch and obviously it will take some time. I am not going any where on that day but still there are few hours.
I think changing the dress wouldn't be easy because i don't know how to adjust my hair as my parlor guy did.
I would say that it is quite rare for brides to have a change of dress during the day, the most that will happen is that the veil "may have to come off" by the time they sit down for the meal.
A lot of brides will ask me when do they take the veil off and I reply usually when you have "had enough of it" being yanked, trod on,and a fly trap. Especially the ones that match the length of the dress. But it is sometimes put back in the hair for the first dance so that the evening guests can see it.
Thank you so much for getting back to me.
If it is normal then i should not change the dress i think. Or may be i am just being worried bit extra
I don't think it matters either way - if your dress is easy to change out of and you would like to have a break from wearing it, then change into something else. But if it's complicated or you just want to keep wearing it, then that is fine also.
I think it is really easy for us to over-worry about things - especially if we normally have a tendency to be anxious about things (I know I do!). But all that really matters is that you are marrying your fiance and starting your new life together. When you think about that, the other things don't seem to matter so much!
Most of our brides stay in their dress all day. The only ones who don't typically get changed into ANOTHER wedding dress because they couldn't decide which one to buy... so bought them both.
I think it is a tough to change the dress because your hair will be spread out & you don't know how to adjust my hair as my parlor did it the dress.
