I’m not changing till the very end but I will change into a ‘send off’ outfit. I want to spend the whole night in my pretty gown but I can’t take it with me on the honeymoon due to it’s size and were leaving the reception and going straight to the honeymoon.

Here it is!

I’ve been thinking about getting an “after party” dress. I’ll keep my dress on the whole time at the reception and then maybe change into a cute short white dress to meet everyone at a bar after the reception. We’re getting married in Savannah and bar hopping after the reception is pretty common.

I’m changing! We like to dance so i want to change into a shorter dress so i can really get down. Plus I get to have 2 beautiful dresses instead of 1

Our wedding will be in a rather small, intimate courtyard of a restaurant. And the reception will be in the same location. So no, I’m not planning to change for the reception.

BUT we may have an after party of sorts when it’s all over… possibly hitting some of the clubs on Bourbon St. (Karaoke anyone? LOL!) So I am searching for something white that’s more street appropriate. 

Maybe something similar to these:

I didn’t change because I wanted to feel like a bride all night long in my original gown! I totally get why some brides do change, but I’m glad I didn’t!

@HappilyEverAfter54: your outfit is freakin cute!!!

This is my lace dress for our vintage reception:

Instead of the belt, I’ll be wearing a gold sash to match my shoes and hairpiece
