My family is vietnamese and they usually like to change into different gowns throughout the evening.  I think my sister had 3 dresses.  Wedding dress, cake cutting dress and dancing dress.

Uhh, I told my mom that I really liked my dress and I didn’t want to go dress shopping and spend more money on more dresses.  I don’t think my mom was happy about it but whatever.

i think it’s more of the asian culture. i was only going to wear my wedding gown but couldn’t resisit the temptation of finally having the appropriate occasion to wear a traditional chinese dress (qi pao), so i have one made and will change into that for the cake cutting.

Only Asian brides do multiple dress changes. American (Caucasian, etc) brides pick one dress and wear it to both the ceremony and reception. In real life, reception dresses are not worn, despite their alleged popularity online.

People wear reception dresses all the time. Its really up to the bride’s preference and budget.
