Hmm, I’m really not a fan of the second dress scenario, just because, as you said, you should love your one dress enough to want to wear it all night long, regardless of how cumbersome it is. However, I understand why some brides want to do that, and you should do whatever you’re comfortable with!

I wanted to comment because I was in the same boat as you! We’re having a small-ish garden wedding, and I purchased a strapless trumpet style gown that was pretty dramatic. A few months ago, I realized what I really wanted was a tea-length dress that I would want to wear all night. So I bought one, and that’s what I’m wearing all day because I love it so much! It was actually a Priscilla of Boston BM dress that came in white (pic attached).

I’m currently trying to sell my old one, and while it’s hard, I know I made thr right choice. I guess just ask yourself, do you really LOVE your current dress? To me, the answer was no. And you can definitely get BM dresses in white on the cheap!

I will be buying a second dress to be my reception dress. When I bought my dress, I absolutely loved it but as time has passed I kind of fallen out of love with it. I mean, it will still be beautiful but my FI and I will be dancing all night so a shorter (tea-length) dress will be more appropriate.

Anyway, I haven’t quite picked the dress yet but this is what I have looked at so far.

I WAS going to wear a second dress to the reception because the ceremony dress was so darn uncomfortable. But I recently found another dress that is so cool and comfy that I decided to wear it for both the wedding and reception. If you want another dress for the reception, go for it!

@<font size=”2″ color=”#81a026″>sminerva21</font> I just love that dress! I’m contemplating using that dress for my bridesmaids. Does it fit well in person?

 As for having 2 dresses, I haven’t found my dress yet so I’m not sure. But I hope I fall in love with it and never want to take it off- so hopefully I’ll be wearing it to the reception 🙂

@AliOopsieDaisy: Yep, the dress is amazing in person, and it fits me perfectly. I’m typically a size 8, and the dress size 8 was almost a perfect fit for me. In person, the skirt has a lovely flow to it when it moves, and I sincerely love this dress.
