Is there any way that you could have last minute alterations to bring your dress down to the proper size?  That will make you feel better about it.  As for the second dress, I stayed in my dress all night.

I second MissAsB — would it be better if you could get it better fitted? It sounds like you do love your dress, just needs to be fitted properly.

I completely understand the appeal of a second dress, though. I am in the middle of a lengthy dress process, so on one hand, I want to stay in that damn thing as long as possible! But on the other, it is going to be dressy and large… everything our reception is not. I definitely want the formal ceremony as it is the most important part to me, but we are having a casual outdoor reception, so I want to be able to relax and run around without worrying about messing my dress up. I am sorely tempted to get a second dress for this purpose (well, more like 5th dress if you count the ones I have owned and am not going to use). I say, if it’s in your budget and you won’t regret not spending every last second in your stunning wedding dress that you can probably never wear again, then go for it!
