    Talking Carrying in a wedding dress

    You heard me right. Im getting married in a month, and I want to carry.
    It wont be in a church, and i wont be drinking, so it will be all legal.
    My only concern is carrying in a dress.
    I have a smartcarry holster, which may or may not work (i dont have the dress here so i cant try it out). im thinking it wont because the dress is kinda tight in that area. I am thinking some kind of thigh holster.
    Here is the one i found: BDFADC Galco Thigh Band Holster FREE S&H, 20% OFF
    Anyone seen any better ones?
    I want something comfortable and need to be able to dance around in it and such.
    I will be carrying my kimber ultra aegis (1911 defender sized)
    I am not 100% familiar with all the size options offered on that website, which one, if any, would fit that gun?
    Any other comments or suggestions?

    Could be quite a shock for the guy going to fetch your garter before the garter toss !
    Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

    First off, congratulations. I see his and hers holsters in your registry. I say go with the "Miss Congeniality" thigh holster, just be sure the garter that is taken and thrown is on the other leg

    I'd be concerned that it could slip down while dancing. That CLUNK when a Kimber hits the tile floor can be quite annoying!

    you need a smaller gun, if you can't force him to say "I DO" with a .380 you ain't gonna make him say it with a .45

    Congrats on the upcoming wedding...does your husband know about the 'three rings in marriage' yet?

    The wedding ring...
    and,
    The suffering...
    Sorry, I couldn't resist...

    No one wants to admit it, but it would be HOT when the garter came down and you saw a weapon. Just don't tell our wives.

    This would be so much funnier if the Kimber Aegis wasn't a 9mm...

    So I can't give you the but I'll give you a for trying.
