I was first introduced to the ‘getaway’ dress when looking at my parents’ own wedding pictures. They left directly from their reception to their honeymoon, and there are a few pictures of my mom in her getaway outfit — a perfect choice for the 1970s; a paisley shift dress — being showered by rice on her short walk to the waiting car. Even though many couples these days don’t leave on their honeymoon right from the reception; the getaway dress still exists – especially as an ‘after party’ dress, for continuing the party into night at a nearby bar, hotel, or just at the venue itself. If you want a little something to slip into for a post-reception party, or something to change into late in the reception for dancing, this dress is exactly that kind of dress I’d envision! I love the idea of continuing with some bridal elements to make this dress stand apart: the hairpins, sparkling accessories, and that fabulous “Mrs.” clutch from kate spade new york to announce your new status!
If you’re planning on wearing your wedding dress straight through all your wedding moments, or aren’t planning on any post-reception parties, I still recommend this dazzling dress as a bride’s rehearsal dinner dress, or for the bride to wear to a bachelorette or engagement party. With this kind of style and shimmer, this dress will garner compliments no matter when you choose to wear it to make an entrance — or exit!
