    If that’s what she wants I think it’s her choice- but I feel like you only get to wear the formal wedding dress for a few hours in your life anyway, why shorten that even further?

    I voted yes, I am getting a 2nd dress that is short for dancing (it will be HOT and I want to be comfortable). I didn’t spend that much on my dress either. But, I wouldn’t do it just because someone else didn’t like my dress. If you love your dress, wear it all night, it will be your only chance!

    A short reception dress for comfort/ease of dancing makes sense.

    I think getting a second gown, though, is silly and wasteful.

    Do what you want, it’s your wedding! Don’t listen to anyone else.

    I’m thinking of doing a second dress if I’m able to find one of the other ones I really liked as either a sample or used or somethig. I absolutely loved it, but went for something a little fancier. Now I realize I’m going to be really hot at my outdoor June wedding in the dress I picked & the other one is still on my mind… I support you doing both, but do it for you & not just for everyone else. And only if you can reasonably afford it too!

    I don’t like when girls switch to another dress.  You’re a bride for one day so your wedding gown should not come off.

    For me it is a matter of finance. Why spend hours of your time and a bundle of your hard earnt cash to buy another dress?
