You betcha!  I love my dress, but I also love to dance at weddings, so I’m changing into a short feather and rhinestone dress after the cake cutting which I also love. 

I bent over at my final fitting and popped off the top button and the clasp and everyone was like “oooohhh don’t do that at the wedding!”  What…bend? move? breathe? I have never been happier to have a reception dress. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a shorter reception dress that I changed into after all the major events at the reception (after cake cutting, first dances, all the photo ops).  It was much easier to dance in, AND, if you’re worried about the whole “peeing in your giant ballgown” bit, the short reception dress solves that problem too.

I am only wearing one dress, but if I had the money I may have picked a second. I purposely chose a dress that was light and that I could wear all day so I would be comfortable. I think this second dress is becoming more popular, and more power to you!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I am worried about my dress being obtrusive as the night wears on, but I think I really can’t justify spending so much on a dress I can never wear again, and then taking it off after a few hours! Plus I can’t imagine trying to find yet another perfect dress!!

My wedding dress is SO heavy, I will have my first dance in it but after that…I’m out of it!

I wanted something elegant but still sexy, but I didn’t want a short dress. I think short dresses tend to make me look bigger (just on me). It has a really low back (I’m wearing that stick on backless bra with it) but it kind of reminds me of a pageant dress…which I actually LOVE. For some reason since the back dips so low, it’s really slimming. I will have to post pictures.

How do you exit to change into your dress after you’ve taken your pictures at your reception?

Not for the reception, I love my dress to much to only wear it for an hour or 2. But I have been looking at short white dresses for my after party, we are having an big after party in a suite at the hotel ๐Ÿ™‚ im sure eveyone will of had plenty to drink by then so I want something that still keeps me looking bridal but I wont kill anyone for spilling a drink on ๐Ÿ™‚
