I did not think I’d need two dresses, I’m still not sure I do. But I was reading a gals blog and she mentioned that she found a second, shorter one for what seems like a good reason: the hot, sweaty factor. She’s getting married outside too and her “regular” dress is fitted like mine, so she found herself a reception dress to avoid walking around in a sweaty gown the rest of the evening.
Here is my dress:
I was hot in the salon so I think after the beach I’ll be BEYOND toasty.
If anyone can think of any wild, short dresses off of the top of their head, that would be great! It doesnt need to be “tame” or demure, hell, it doesnt even have to be white. I just want something short and funky I can wear when that monster above gets to be too much.
Anything with pink would be great, but white is cool too. I will be adding “bling” to whatever I pick 🙂

maybe you can have your dress altered to tear off to a mini. I was so sad to take my dress off at the end of the night. I can’t imagine changing out of it. I definitely got hot on the dance floor though – and my wedding was inside in winter.

Just wanted to say your dress is to die for and you are gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you pick for a shorter reception dress!

@MrsWBS: That’s a great idea! I’ll have to ask the seamstress if that’s something she can pull off….
@Mrs_Sailor: Thank you very much 🙂 I have a second dress in mind but I definitely want to look into having my original altered too 🙂

@badabing88: If you got the tear off and still wanted a poofy skirt, you could have a tutu kind of deal to put on or something!

@badabing88: Your dress is gorgeous it would be a shame to change out of it.
I’m sorry but I do think I might have missed something. I have been following your posts because I enjoy them but I didn’t think you were engaged yet? Did he pop the question?

@dragon_tattoo: You are right: I love those! Thank you!!
@j_jaye: Nope, not yet 🙂 He bought my ring back in April or beginning of May I believe it was…and like a week later we stumbled upon my “dream dress” I’d seen online at a local shop and it was so inexpensive we went for it! At this rate, we’ll have the whole thing ready to go by the time he proposes 😉
@MrsWBS: I’m definitely going to check that out!
