    Gah can’t change my vote, I voted 1. I wanted a reception dress, but I love my dress too much and since its the only time I’d wear it I’m going to wear it.

    To our intimate family dinner I will change into a traditional chinese dress as a surpise for my mom.

    so techinally 2, but really just one.

     

    My mom had like 3 dress changes or 4, sometimes its a cultrual thing. More changes means you have more money. I don’t like to flaunt wealth so against that idea.

    @renwoman:  I am just wearing one dress at my actual wedding, because I love it so much that I want to keep it on as long as possible!  That said, I have expanded my bridal wardrobe in many other ways so I can wear a lot of bridal looking outfits. I may have gone a little crazy actually!

    I have an ivory lace dress for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner luau that I am wearing with a bridal sash, and I have another white fancy dress for a post-destination wedding reception my future mother in law is hosting in San Diego.  I also have the rhinestone “Bride” robe from Victoria’s Secret to wear while getting dressed on my wedding day for photos.  Add to that, I have a week’s worth of bridal rhinestone panties and thongs.  I also have a custom made hoodie and tank top that say Future Mrs. — in blue swarovski crystals that I plan to wear on my flight to Maui and leading up to the wedding.

    I’m planning on wearing 2. I want a poofier gown for the ceremony and pictures and the TTD shoot, but I want a short dress for the reception bc it will be on the beach, in the islands, in the summer, so it will be veryyy hot.

    @futuremrsk18:  Are you wearing your actual wedding dress for the TTD shoot?  I am debating buying a second, less expensive gown for a TTD shoot because I love the idea of one and the gorgeous photos, but don’t actually want to destroy my expensive gown that I love.

    @FLBlonde93:  No because I have read a lot of TTD reviews from brides and they ALL say that their dress did NOT get ruined. A lot of them rinse it off, put it in the wash, etc then hang it to dry and say it comes out good as new. They say it was actually pretty dirty and ruined by the end of the reception anyway (both my friends’ dresses ripped at the beginning of the night by someone stepping on the dress, even though it was bustled) and that it came out cleaner after they cleaned it for the TTD. I remember reading one bride said that she did her TTD, washed it in the hotel room tub, hung it to dry, and then wore it at her AHR. It probably depends on the material of your dress. I haven’t picked mine yet, but I don’t really want to spend more than $1,500 on it anyway and I’m never going to wear it again, so I don’t care what I do with it (hope my future daughter doesn’t want it lol).

    @futuremrsk18:  Maybe I should just go for it then!  Thanks for the helpful information!

    @FLBlonde93:  YW! You should check bestdestinationwedding.com for more TTD reviews and the like, since a lot of brides there have done them.

    I have a “wedding” dress for the ceremony and reception and then a simpler cocktail dress for the dinner after the ceremony.

    @renwoman:  I only wanted one dress, but we had a luncheon and then went out dancing that night… And my 53 pound ballgown was NOT going to get destroyed in a nightclub!

    So I got a second dress of Etsy for $100, made it tea-length, and added a crinoline!

    I have my wedding gown to wear for the ceremony and most of the reception, but I’m planning on changing into another evening gown to dance in.

    If I had found another dress I loved as much as mine and had the budget I would have loved 2 dresses, but turned out there was only one out there for me that nothing compared to 🙂 I wish I could wear it again!!

    I put 2, but I’m not sure yet. I’ve fallen in love with a dress and I think if it’s still available, I’ll be buying it by the end of the year. If I find a dress after that, it will be a reception dress (or ceremony, whichever it works best for). I really wanted one of the dresses that’s long, then unzips or buttons to make it shorter, but you never see them any more.
