From my experience with the boards, most of the bees here are against a 2nd dress change.  Personally, I am looking forward to wearing two dresses.  I’m considering changing possibly after dinner, for the majority of the dancing, dessert and the exit.  It really depends on the first dress that I ultimately choose and if I can do my first dance in it and what we ultimately end up doing.

If my budget allowed, I definitely would get a reception dress – go for it!

Personally, since I am paying for my dress myself and it is likely the most dressed up I will ever be, I plan to wear my wedding dress for as many hours as possible. However, if you have the means and feel it is important to be uninhibited by the big dress so you can dance your ass off, then go for it!

I liked changing into a second dress for my first wedding reception.  However, my reception dress was an exact copy of my ivory wedding dress but made with red fabric so it was still a big poofy dress.  This time I am looking for a more casual wedding dress so I will likely wear it all night.

My white prom dress is perfect for this, I LOVE that dress and would love to wear it again… However, I am paying so much money for my wedding dress that I feel like I should wear it for more than a few hours… Plus, I want as many pictures in it as possible! Lol

My SIL had a big ballgown for her ceremony and first dance and dinner than changed into a reception dress that was a light and airy fit and flare after she ate.  She was soooooo happy she did it and both her dresses were pretty inexpensive so she didn’t feel too bad about spending money.
