I just can’t decide if I should stay in my dress or buy another more simple dress to change into for the reception? I mean we are sort of on a budget so buying another expensive dress is out, what are some of you ladies doing?

As of right now I plan on wearing one dress throughout the reception. Plans may change because my dress is extremely heavy and my folks are urging me to have a second dress.
My folks are willing to foot a second dress which will be custom made (nothing too crazy expensive). I’m having a hard time with this because I love my dress and will only get to wear it once…might as well get as much wear as I can.

I’m staying in my dress. I love it and I have a feeling I am never going to want to take it off.

I’m staying in my dress. I’m not paying over 6 grand to wear it for just about 5 seconds. :p I’m gonna keep that sucker on as long as possible.

Yup, I’m staying in mine for sure. I didn’t pay that kind of money just to wear it for a couple hours! FI’s gonna have to tear it off me (I’m sure he’d love it, lol)! 🙂

I am having a reception dress, my main dress for the event is very big and heavy and restraining, but gorgeous!
My reception dress I bought at Macy’s a simple evening dress in white with Rhinstone crystals on top and on straps. I’m having it shortened to above my knees.
Cost: Dress $100 on sale! Alterations: $80

I’d almost like to get a reception dress, but how many times do you get to wear a wedding dress? So I’m just going to suck it up and wear my gorgeous, amazing dress for the whole wedding. 😉

I’m wearing my dress for the ceremony and reception. Its beautiful and expensive, and I’m getting a full day’s wear out of it!

Yea same here! I don’t want to spend that kind of money and only wear it for 30 minutes.

YES! I purposely bought a form-fitting dress with a small train so it wouldn’t be too much of a nuissance for walking around Paris and dancing the night away! Why would I want to change out of my beautiful dress?!

Yes! Mine is very comfortable and I love it too much to change out of it!

I love my dress and the ceremony is only 20 minutes long. I am definitely keeping it on.
