ANOTHER QUESTION! sorry guys i'm wondering if people have worn their dress all day on their wedding day, worn a shorter version of their dress, a similar version, a completely different dress or have changed bck to their shorts and tshirts?

heres the situation i'm thinkin of :- wedding ceremony @ the WP or S/D courtyard hopefully around lunch time. then possibly photos in some of the resorts depending on wht photographer we go wi etc. then the only other thing i would like to do is go for a meal somewhere with our family an i was thinkin dinner time so prob bout 6/7pm or somethin. Oh an to finish i think me an my fiance would like to watch the MK fireworks from the poly beach by ourselves.

So what i'm thinkin is what are peoples opinions on the whole dress thing. should i keep the dress on all day, change to something else for the meal an beach (which would mean we could mayb visit a park or somethin in the afternoon if theres time) or change during the afternoon an change bck in2 my dress for the meal and fireworks???????

wht did others do? did anyone have a similar situation?

Debra

Hi again sweetie. Glad the planning is going well.
Our ceremony was at 3pm and I stayed in my dress for the rest of the day. Our dinner reservation was for 5.30pm. I guess we left to go to BLT at about 7.30pm and we watched the fireworks there with our guests. Afterwards, DH and I had a drink alone at TOTWL and strolled back to our room hand in hand. I kept my dress on the whole time. I loved it so much and wanted to wear it for as long as possible.
I even wore it again a couple of days later for our TTD session with Randy.
I say, unless you plan on going to a park on your wedding day, stay in your dress as long as possible. You will probably not get an opportunity to wear it again!!!

thanks for sharing tinkerbell i agree wear it as much as possible i'l wear it to my reception bck home but even this doesnt seem long enough lol thinkin about it overnight i'd def not change in2 shorts on my wedding day so now to decide whether 2 keep the same dress or go with a shorter one.
i was hopin for a character interaction dinner but i dunno if *** these r in lower priced restaurants i'd feel overdressed in my wedding dress.........haven't decided yet. i dont really plan on goin to the parks on my wedding day altho if i do get a shorter wedding style dress i might b tempted to get a pic wi the castle in it.
so did u do pics with randy on ur wedding day or did u jus do it days later? i'd not thought bout that i figured if we were to book someone for photography we'd get it all done on our wedding day but now another day could b an option an mayb would fit better timewise.

I'm the same for kilts we found a shop west of tampa that would do them but have heard good an bad things about it plus it would b quite a trip there and back for fittings etc think we'r goin 2 do the same just hire them for a few weeks take them with us. we could end up payin a lot of luggage charges *** there'l b 4kilts an a 5 year olds kilt between our whole party.

Good luck to u too :D (ps hav u started a plannin journal yet? i haven't was thinkin of doin one soon dunno if its too early since i have nothin planned anywayz)

We hired Randy for two days - our actual VR day and ages days later to do a Trash the Dress session on the Poly beach, in the lagoon, at Sunset Point and in the Poly pool. It was so much fun!!!!

i just know the last time i went 2 florida our cases were just under the limit when we weighed them at the airport so i'm thinkin wi a kilt in each case they'd def b over lol altho we'r goin for the kilt wi the ghilli shirts instead of proper shirt tie waistcoats etc so thats a little less weight. I'v not did anythin for the reception altho my mum an me are off for a week in oct so we'r plannin on lookin at venues for the reception then an seein what is out there that she can wear as mother of the bride and what sort of dress my sister can wear as bridesmaid so that should b fun. i got my samples from someone on facebook. think it was jolly creations but i'm not entirely sure would need to go check. (if i work out how to add pictures to this thread i'l take a pic of my samples that i think i'm gonna go with)

Hi again sweetie
Although I had a TTD session, my dress is far from trashed. I went into the water (both the lagoon and the pool), rolled around in the sand and sat on the grass in my precious dress and it has cleaned up as good as new and is hanging in my wardrobe today, as fresh as a daisy!!!!
We had no issue with being around the resorts in my dress. You are perfectly entitled to be around anywhere (except the parks themselves), in your wedding dress.
Randy is very well known at WDW and the CMs trust him. He is respectful and would not intrude on the space of other brides or any other guests.
The only time a cast member commented was to congratulate us or to greet Randy warmly. I really had the greatest fun at our TTD session. I can post some pics for you if you wish to see some.

do u have the pictures on facebook? think i'v stumbled upon u on the disbrides group, i recognised the picture as being the same as on here lol i'm just thinkin it would b easier to look on there than for u 2 put them on here (unless u want 2 put them here too)

think i might go wi randy just for piece of mind theres so many gd reviews from him an he seems 2 really understand what brides want an its reassuring that the CM's wont b annoyed or bother us too much. was it much more expensive to go wi randy than just use a photographer they provided?

i'm still tryin 2 decide wht will b best between the swan an wedding pavillion. in way of photography i'm thinkin if i went with disney an the WP its gonna work out really expensive 2 get the prints an cd an copyrightin rights to the pictures that we want but if i go wi the swan i'm losin some of the disney things i want. need 2 keep gathering info for a while longer before we make the final decision.

Wow TTD sounds like fun i beat the photos would look amazin jumpin in the pool etc i'l need 2 suggest that 2 the fiance see wht he says lol as long as i know i can get it bck 2 perfect condition then i'm happy lol

ps could u pm instructions on how 2 add pictures to the disboards i want to start my planning journal soon even if i jus do like the introduction bit to us etc but i want 2 put photos in especially as i start plannin an makin proper decisions lol
