After party attire

So for the ladies who will be having an After Party or going to a bar like me.......will you keep your wedding dress on or change into something else?

I am unsure of what to do...I always told myself I would not be one of those brides who wears my dress out...but not sure now.

    J paid $450 for my dress. Damn straight I wore that sucker for as long as I could!

    oh ok....that is probably what will be doing, or some local bar.

    I would wear my dress, but I'm going for tea length instead of full length.

    As long as you're comfortable in it and you're willing to see it get a little dirty, I don't see why you couldn't wear it out.  Plus, it would probably make for some badass "I'm the damn bride, MF" pictures.

    It was a local sports bar. Funny enough there was another wedding party having their after party there, that same night. I got lots of compliments on my dress from the people she was partying with. The other bride had changed out of her dress into something more casual. I enjoyed being in my dress all day.

    haha very true, mine was $400....I guess I will wait to see...I might be ready to get out of it.  Wedding is only 3.5 hrs start to finish, so I might be ok

    I was thinking of getting a shorter dress for the after party.  I have a feeling the bottom of my dress will be stepped on many, many times and I'll want to throat punch someone before the night is over.

    You should be fine. I just knew if I went to the hotel and changed, I wouldn't leave (I was beat!).

    Nope, I don't have any pictures of me in it to post.  When it comes in, I'll be sure to AW it up properly.

    I didn't go anywhere after the reception (waaay too tired), but just for the record, my dress was all bustled up and it still got filthy on the bottom.

    I'm planning to wear my dress. Our after party is in the bar of the hotel we're all staying at.

    My friend was married in Rosarito Beach in Mexico and we went to one of the big clubs down there and they wore their dresses and their tuxes.  It was awesome seeing Claire in her dress eating tacos from a street vendor.

    Now with more wedded bliss.


    I don't get married often, but when I do, I do it in Las Vegas.
