@laurelewrigley:  I sure wouldn’t have!  Also most of the wedding dresses are too heavy and hot to wear all through the reception so two thumbs up from me ๐Ÿ™‚

@laurelewrigley:  I will probably leave mine on for the cake cutting and all that but shortly into the reception im slipping out and changing, probably will just sneak in it and see whos the first to spot me :), how about you???

That is one sexy dress!! They only thing I’d be worried about is dancing with the slit that high…. But Its def gorgeous. I think it might be hard to sit in thou without exposing too much.

Defintiely go for it. I wore my wedding dress for the ceremony and the beginning portion of the reception for the toasts, first dance, and cake cutting. For the dancing and bouquet toss I changed into my reception dress to dance in. It was amazing bc though I loved my wedding dress, my reception dress was so much lighter and easier to dance and move around in. 

Here’s the photo of my wedding dress and one of my reception dress:

Ignore my odd facial expression (I was cheering my ring boy who was break dancing).

Do it!  Cute dress!  Plus, what better way to make the night one to remember than to look like a bombshell in that stunning dress!  Classy and cute.

@laurelewrigley:  It’s nice! You could look into getting it hemmed to be a mini dress afterwards ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s a gorgeous dress, and definitely very sexy. The slit does look very high, but unless you’re as tall as the model, I would imagine it wouldn’t be as high on you?

In response to your question – by all means, get a second dress! I’ll be changing into a separate reception dress too.

@laurelewrigley:  I remember ur wedding dress and it is GORGEOUS!! i would wear that dress all night…to bed AND to breakfast the next morning!!!! LOL!! 

but seriously, I am planning to wear a mermaid and rock it all night because if i’m spending 5k on my dress…i’m gonna wear it to the last minute!  i know it’ll be pretty restrictive with the dancing..but i dont plan on break dancing and dripping with sweat…so i’m going to try to stick it out.

ur second dress is beautiful tho!!! tough decision! did u have the extra cash around?? if so might be worth it for alot later in the night.

If you love your wedding gown but know it won’t be comfortable for the reception I say go for a 2nd dress.  My aunt had a VERY fitted dress (reminded me of someone walking around in suran wrap, just meaning how fitted it was lol) and she says she regrets the dress just simply because she couldn’t move comfortably when dancing etc.  I definitely took that into consideration when looking for sheath, mermaid, fit and flares etc.  You may feel super sexy in it, it may give you curves like a mountain side road but if you can’t stand to be in it for hours than you either need a reception dress or a new look altogether.
