I think if your groom remains dressed to the 9’s and be slightly uncomfortable so should you. Not to say you can’t change… but I don’t think you should go from a 10 to a 3 (fomality wise)

While it is a cute dress in general, you might feel awkward if you change into something that casual. It’s possible that your groom AND your guests may be more dressed up than you. 

Personally, I didn’t change my dress but I did wear sneakers bedazzled with my new last name underneath 🙂 My dress was pretty large but I was having so much fun I barely noticed!

@aliavenue:  I don’t think she meant it in a mean way… I thought that shirt was cute and would be cute if you were changing into something super casual afterwards…

I agree with PP’s, I would feel a little strange getting dressed in something that casual while everyone else is dressed up, but if your groom is dressing down as well then it would be less awkward… but it’s whatever you want.

@aliavenue:  I don’t think she was trying to be mean. I think she was just going off of the previous comment to say if only you change it might look a little strange, but if you both change into something more comfortable, then it will work out, hence the example.

I think you should go for it. I got a pretty casual reception dress, more cocktail-ish, for $40 this summer. Plus, you could jazz it up with some pretty jewelry & all your bridal accessories.

my reception dress is very comfy!  Fiance is fine with idea as he’s not going to be wearing his tie or suitcoat at that point.  here’s mine – please ignore the bra straps lol

I was also planning on changing into something casual but I was still considering a prom like white dress. But I think your dress is super cute, my recep is a little more formal so I can’t wear something that causal 🙁 But is your Fiance also changing, I know my Fiance will take off his jacket and losing up a bit. Good luck.

I think that dress is unmistakeably a day dress, it’s really really casual. There are more formal/eveningish dresses that are still comfortable.
