Changing Into a Dress After Your Wedding
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!
Other Ways to Wear A This Cute White Dress
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 white 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!
