I am getting married November next year and I am having trouble with my dresses.
I have 1 dress chosen and payed for, it is a ball gown style in a nice suttle ivory. I tryed on over 50 dresses before I found this one and I fell in love with this dress and I can’t imagine getting married in anything else BUT I love the mermaid dresses and I have an amazing figure to go with it. I love the idea of having my dream dress(ball gown) for my ceremony but I would love to wear the sexy figure hugging mermaid/trumpet for the reception. Normal I wouldn’t even think twice about it because I know allot of people who have done it and it has looked amazing, but i am getting married in a garden and the reception is only going to be small with close family and friends (just over 20 people at most).
Because it isn’t a very big wedding do you think this would be a silly idea? I just know I am only going to get to have a wedding once so I don’t want to miss out on anything.

No, I don’t think it’s a silly idea at all.
I think that if you’re able to afford two gowns without sending yourself or someone else into to debt, you should go for it. It is your wedding, after all. Besides, there are lots of affordable options, so getting a second dress shouldn’t be too difficult.

I don’t think it’s silly, it’s your special day! If I could shrink my guest list down to 20 (which isn’t possible in our case), I would use it as an excuse to splurge on 2 dresses since I’d save so much on the reception. I’m having the same dilemma with wanting both a ball gown and a trumpet dress hehe.

You do whatever you want. You have obviously make a huge desicion just to have 20 people at the wedding (we have 17 people so Ive been through the same decision making dramas). After making that huge desicion, we now realise more than ever this is OUR day, and we can have or not have whatever we want.
if you want to have 2 dresses, have 2 dresses. No one is going to think you are over the top, everyone coming is close to you and loves you for you and will see mothing but beauty.
