    It’s small and light – you might as well bring it just in case!

    For $36 that’s an adorable dress, I’d get it and wear it for your bridal shower. On your wedding day, honestly…it goes so fast you won’t even want to waste any time on a wardrobe change, and you’ll probably want to stay in the fancy dress that you love! I would have your maid of honor pack your backup dress though, only in case of emergency (ie. drunk uncle spills wine on your dress). Stick with your fancy dress, it’s your WEDDING!! : )

    I’d wear the dream gown all night unless something awful happens.

    That simple dress can be worn to the shower, the rehearsal, or even church. But you only get one chance to wear the big, fancy white gown.

    @lovelyduckie:  I’m looking for a backup dress too!   I LOVE my dress…but it’s a mermaid dress and it’s difficult to sit in lol.  I told myself I’d wear it for 3 days straight to make it worth my money (i’m just kidding of course, but you get the point), but WHAT IF…WHAT IF the zipper breaks or the seams???  Anyways, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT DRESS!!!  I love it, and it fits my budget for a “backup dress”.  Thanks!

    I would bring it just in case. I think if you’re worried about discomfort in your wedding gown, it’s ok to bring a backup just in case. It’s better than not bringing it and then regretting the decision at the wedding. 

    In my culture, multiple wardrobe changes are built into the wedding time. So, you won’t miss your party if you needs a couple of minutes to change (esp. if your BMs help you). It’s all part of the fun!

    @lovelyduckie:  I’m thinking of wearing a white cocktail dress for my bachlorette party, so I’m going to bring that with me, just in case I feel like I need to change. If you have it anyway, you might as well bring it. But if you don’t feel like changing and you’re perfectly comfortable wearing your dress, it doesn’t mean you have to just so you can have a waredrobe change.

    you only get to wear your wedding dress once, wear it as long as possible.  Yeah wedding dresses are def not the most comfortable but I didn’t feel a thing until I took it off and realized where it had been squeezing, pinching, pushing, chafing. 

    You can wear the pictured dress anywhere really.
