Get-Away/ Reception dress! Suggestions?!

So i dont actually want a reception dress per say, but my girl friends and my mother both suggested i bring a "get-away" dress, so that they could take care of packaging my dress up to be cleaned and preserved and me not having to worry about it... and so that future hubby would not have issues later that night with undoing my dress. 

So the ideal dress would be flattering, obviously plus size since thats what i am, and i dont know about color... not sure if i want to stick with the white theme (or in my case ivory) or go out with a bang with a fun color, preferably under 200... but i've so been tempted to try on short wedding dresses at DB everytime i go in there and its killing me but i keep telling myself that i dont WANT/NEED a reception dress, i mean this is something id slip into before leaving or something, so not really in pics or anything like that and hopefully something i can re-wear down the road...and of course simple to get in and out of. LOL! any suggestions? places to look? let me know what you think! share pics!

 I think that is a great idea.  I would really like to do something like that but my FI has expressed great desire for wanting to "Unwrap" his present later that evening :)

I do love that idea though.  It's one less thing you have to think about.

 I did ask my FI this and he didn't seem to bothered by the idea. But I guess before I seriously go shopping I will ask again. I just know my gown is corseted and honestly he has a hard enough time with my bra strap. Lol!!
