I’m undecided. I want to wear my dress as long as possible because yah, I only get to wear it once. But when it arrives and I go through alterations, I’ll have to evaluate how comfortable it is and if I think I’ll be ok wearing it dancing etc. If I DID get a reception dress, I’d only wear it for like 2 hours max I think, I want my wedding dress on as long as humanly possible. Until I absolutely can’t take it anymore and want to relax and party! Hopefully I can do that in my wedding dress though, but I’ve accepted the possibility I might be uncomfortable.

My wedding is some time away, but I’ve already found THE dress. I figure, if closer to the wedding I can’t resist and just have to look at more dresses, I’ll look for something for the reception. I love to dance, so a shorter dress would be nice, but I love the one I’ve picked. We’ll see.

I’ve decided on a second dress because my ceremony dress is HUGE and that would be a job by itself.

I’m sticking with one dress for the Ceremony and Reception but am considering a 2nd dress for the afterparty. Basically everyone’s heading to the bar near the hotel after the official party ends. I want to go too but probably not in my ball gown. The only thing that’s stopping me is figuring out where and when to change. I don’t want to leave the reception in the 2nd dress. But I also don’t really want to go to the hotel, change, and then go out again.

One dress for me, but I have pretty lightweight dress to begin with.
