home reception question...help!
Posted 07 November 2007 - 09:46 PM
I was just wondering if you are planning on putting your wedding dress during a home reception?
For those who are married:
Did you wear your wedding dress during your "home reception" and why?
I am getting married in December and I am having a small reception at a restaurant (35 people-- uncles + aunts since they are not coming to Mexico with us). The date is one week after we return (December 29th).
I was planning on putting my wedding dress even if it's very cold in Montreal in December! But tonight, my FI told me that he doesn't think it's a good idea... it might be a bit "takky" !
What do you think?

I am having a day reception (lunch)
I was thinking of telling the guests to arrive at 11:30 (appetizers + drinks), then us arriving at 12:00 (with my 2 kids) dress like the wedding day and then sit down to start the meal. After each service, I was planning on showing a slide show.
After the 1st course: the resort+ vacation pictures
After the 2nd course:us getting ready
After the 3rd course: the ceremony
Before desert: shock them with my TTD photo session!
So putting on the dress is still a good thing?

If the BM's and Mom's want to wear their same dresses, that's totally fine, but if not that's fine too. The AHR will be casual, so no worries on what anyone wears, but I am totally wearing my dress!

We get home on a Saturday, and I wanted to to the reception the next Saturday since we will see all of the family members on Jan 1st + Jan 5th. I need to do the reception before all the holiday parties otherwise they will know all about the trip+wedding before the reception!

You can see from the pic below of the rooftop deck how casual it is -- but we will put white tablecloths on the tables and centerpieces to dress it up a little bit!
