@Stellar Magnitude: I really like that first one!

I won’t be changing, I’m on a tight budget… it’s so hard to pick just one pretty dress though! lol

I absolutely LOVE my wedding dress, but it’s huge and heavy and I’m tiny, and I’m afraid when I bustle it that I’ll fall over backwards haha! The train is too long to even think about not bustling it, unless I stand still all night long ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I’ll probably be getting a reception gown so I can dance!

Yep! My reception is outside in our yard so I’m wearing my dress to mingle a little so people can see it and the paparazzi my aunts can get some pictures. But it’s long in the back so it will touch the ground and get dirty. I’m changing into something else that’s short and sexier, which Fiance will like ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m planning to have a second line through the French Quarter, so definitely plan on getting a shorter dress.  The idea of wearing my mermaid Monique Lhuillier through Bourbon Street makes me want to cry.  It would get filthy.

I am not changing, wearing my wedding gown the entire night.  I want to get bang for my buck! ๐Ÿ™‚

After reading this though, maybe I should have something cute on hand to change into at the hotel.  Our reception doesn’t end until 1:30am, but Fiance is pretty confident we are going to party it up at the hotel afterwards.  I might want to think about having a cute dress to put on that is a bit more “drinking beers in the hotel suite” friendly. ๐Ÿ™‚

I absolutely love my wedding dress and won’t change no matter what!  If i’m dropping money on something like that, that I can only wear for ONE day,  you can bet I’ll wear it all day.

I might throw on a statement necklace or something to jazz it up later in the evening, but I’m keeping it on at the after party.
