I need help deciding what to wear to my “after party” which is basically a recaption but 1.5 years after my private ceremony. I’m guessing a wedding dress isn’t appropriate. What I wore on my wedding day I don’t think I even still have now. Ideas? It’s an evening event at a nice place with a live band. Thoughts? It’s in the middle of November so we are doing a rustic/fall theme.

To @aquaelle: Etiquette Snob here… lol
Before I comment further… I am curious about the huge gap…
You were married 1-1/2 years ago but having a Wedding Reception now. That is a long time. Was there a particular reason for the gap ?
The WHY to that answer will help to steer me in what is and isn’t appropriate for the occasion (clothing wise) and what it should be “billed as” for your Guests…
Ie: Vow Renewal – Wedding Celebration – other

I looked for gowns at bloomingdales.com and found these…I think they would be appropriate, depending on your style 🙂

The time gap is because my husband had just graduated from nursing school, had to study for his boards, we both got new jobs etc. now that we’re ready to throw a party, it’s taking about 12 months until we can book the place we want and to get ready for the event. It is known to our guests we just want them to come have fun and not to give any gifts.
