This is a low-grade issue and I'm grateful that with a month to go before my wedding this is my big question. However, I seem to have fixated on it am generally over-thinking and could use a blunt opinion.
We're having a very low-key outdoor grill-out wedding this June at my parents' Christmas tree farm. The set-up is a bit wonky: small gathering of close family/friends with snacks, lawn games, etc. in the early afternoon, wedding ceremony in the evening, and then opening it up to a larger community (I'm from a very small town so everyone just sorta shows up, there's no stopping it) for dancing, cake, merriment, etc.
My question is about my wardrobe. I have a beautiful, simple wedding dress I chose because I feel like me in it and it's comfortable. My original plan had been to just wear it all day because why not. It's great. But now I'm wondering if this is going to be somehow anti-climactic for people, most importantly my fiance, because there will be no "moment" at the actually ceremony when he'll/they'll see me in the dress for the first time... does this matter?
Should I wear a sundress (I do have a nice new one I could use) during the day and then have a costume change right before the ceremony? Do I just enjoy wearing my great wedding dress all day?
Just wear it all day because why not. It's great.
