    I’d wear your original dress for the ceremony and the lace dress to the reception.

    I think your idea is great. It should please everybody and most of all, make you happy (and dad).

    Could you use the top of the lace dress to make a jacket (similar to the pronovias button back jackets) and wear that over the dress your dad got you?

    I think you’ve got the right idea. I think dad should be okay with you wearing the lace dress for the religious ceremony because the lace dress is more “modest”, which may be more appropriate anyhow.

    I think the the dress your dad bought you is really fun for the reception and the lace one is lovely for a religious ceremony! You get the best of both worlds.

    The dress your dad got you is beautiful. If you really want/need modesty have you thought about getting a lace bolero/shrug to cover your arms?

    @rachel-michelle:  I love the lace! Maybe you could wear that in Israel and the other dress in NYC? I agree with the ladies that say the lace is more modest and the other dress is more reception

    They’re both really nice. Before you do anything, talk to your dad. It would be awful for him to see you get married in the second one without warning. He might be ok with selling your first dress, but if he wants you to wear it I think you should. He was probably emotional about you getting married, not the dress. How much was lace dress? Could he sell the first one then pay you back for the lace one?

    I vote talk to dad, then if he’s on board, wear lace one to religious wedding, dad dress to NYC wedding.

    They are both beautiful and I understand wanting to wear both. I would wear the one your dad got you in NYC and the other one in Israel, or whatever makes most sense to you. That way you can have a new dress for both. I love that lace one–good find!
