This is where an elder in your community should come in--ask them. I, personally, do not like the idea for the very same reasons you state. As a serious committed dancer the jiingle dress was created for a specific purpose. A jingle dress is a jingle dress--a wedding dress is a wedding dress. You wouldn't wear a wedding dress to the beach . . . . . get the picture! I am an old style jingle dress dancer and an older dancer as well; I believe some things have their place and should be as such. Enjoy you're wedding, make a a new jingle dress for that day and feast it with your family so that when you wear it to pow wows it carries those special wishes, prayers, and love when you dance, but make a wedding T-dress, or a simple wedding dress for the purpose of getting married. That's my two cents! Congratulations.
