I had two dresses and I changed right after dinner/before our speech. Really, any few minutes when you can steal away will work! Selfishly, I wanted to go up for our speech in my cocktail dress because I wanted everyone to notice it 🙂 My momma made it for me!

I’d change into it after the ceremony so that you have professional pics in both dresses like you said.

Firstthingsfirst:  Your momma did an amazing job! I’m trying to learn a little bit of sewing and I’m envious of her skill, fitting things to people’s bodies is really hard.

Barbiestylez:  I like the idea of after the ceremony as well. That way, you can do another “first look” 🙂 

It’ll surprise your FI and guest!

I would change right after your first dance to get slightly more wear out of your BEAUTIFUL ceremony gown. Then you can surprise guests when you walk back in the reception to dance with them in that (also gorgeous) mermaid gown!

After the ceremony and before dinner would probably be the best time. Maybe after the toasts/speeches and dances, you can sneak off while everyone is distracted by food – that would be my plan.

By the way, your gowns are gorgeous..ball gown ceremony and trumpet/mermaid is what I’m hoping for too.

Your reception dress is stunning, either one for pictures would be lovely but maybe after your dances with your father and husband.
