    these options are not mutually exclusive

    option: borrow a P3AT to practice with in advance and then use a white ribbon with a neck holster

    option: you're committing your life to this man, let him be responsible for carrying for both of you from the time you leave the bridal chamber (let your parents take it) until you two leave the reception (parents give it back to you)

    friesepferd, Congrats on the nuptials. Sorry more here didn't answer your question. I think mainly it's due to lack of similar experience.

    Being as you're sticking with the Kimber, and it's a "normal" type wedding dress more or less, sounds like you've covered about the only two viable options in a Smart Carry or thigh rig (off body carry in some sort of hand bag may not really work at a wedding). Not so sure I'd abandon the thigh rig just yet. It can be secured, would be a slightly easier draw than the Smart Carry (I think). And it may have less tendency to print, based on how tight the dress is. As to chafing, etc., other things can address this (nylons?). But as stated elsewhere here, whatever you decide to go with, wear it as much as practicable before the event, to work out any bugs/comfort/slippage issues before the big day.

    And have a great wedding!
    Regards, T Bone.

    I have no advice to help with choosing a holster/carry method... the closest I'll come to dealing with this is carrying in a kilt, and I'm having special loops made for my IWB to cover that...

    But, if chaffing is a concern, run to your local sporting goods shop and grab a stick of Body Glide. Runners, bicyclists, and kilt wearers alike wear it to cut down on friction and protect against chaffing. It looks like a stick of deodorant and most bigger sporting goods stores carry it (Dick's and Academy both have it near me - not sure about your area though).

    friespferd, you know you are going to have to post pics of your final choice, providing you can post pics that is.

    I know I am curious as to how it works out, I'm sure others are. I have 2 daughters, so I may have to incorporate this in their prom dresses later on (kidding of course, maybe).

    I've heard of a shotgun wedding before but a .45 wedding?
    Seriously though, maybe you could get one of those ab belts that are supposed to wrap around you waist and wrap it around high on your leg? The excess overlap would act as a kind of a holster if you safety pin the bottom so it doesn't slide down and....surprise....

    This thread has been all over the place, so let me suggest a talk with Lady Derringer and see if she can't make you a commemorative model with your wedding date as the serial number. Still think a wide white ribbon behind the neck and under bosom would provide safe, secure means of retaining a small holster.
