    You should talk it over with your fiance to see what he thinks. I am going to wear my gown the entire time. It will be the only time I will ever wear it, and like you stated “Its also the most expensive single peice of clothing that I will probably ever own”. I definately want to get my moneys worth. I will have mine bustled for the reception.

    I love my wedding dress, although it’s not here yet (it should arrive any day now), and it was not cheap.  Actually it’s going to be the most expensive dress I will probably ever wear, so I can’t imagine changing into another one.

    I am changing into a white cocktail dress for our after party, though I will wear my wedding dress for our brunch reception.

    I’m keeping the dress on all night, because, well heck, it’s the only time I’ll get to wear it! I want to get my money’s worth out of that beautiful sucker!

    I’m going to wear mine all night – wedding, reception, after party – the whole deal. I will, however, be changing shoes!

    paying way to much for a dress to only keep it on for 20 mins.  It may even try to wear it around the kitchen every now and then 🙂

    I’m definitely wearing mine all night. It’s the first and only time I’ll get to wear a wedding dress and I might even sleep in it!

    It’s too expensive to only wear for an hour =]. But mine was comfy!

    I loved my wedding dress so much, there was no way I was taking it off!  I was bummed that I only got to wear it once, so I wanted to have it on all night!

    I’ve seen a picture of you in your dress and i say NO. I think it would almost take away from the bridal experience, unless you change into a fun white dress instead of the matching the wedding colors, or else you’ll sort of look too bridal party-ey to me… so with that said, nah keep your fantastic dress on!!! besides you’ll be dancing too much to sit 😀

    Before I found my dress I loved the idea of getting a Dolly Couture dress for the reception… but after finding my dream dress I can’t imagine ever taking it off!  I plan on wearing it to work daily for a couple weeks following my honeymoon lol
