Go for it! I’m having a semi-DW and a second reception, and I’m thrilled that I can wear my dress twice!

I think it is a lovely dress!

If you were to ask on the Knot they would emphatically say no you cannot rewear your dress however.  Just saying because I asked as well and it was apparently not OK!  You can at a minimum try it on to show people but that’s it.

Definitely!  That dress is beautiful, and perfect for both a wedding and a party!

We were thinking about doing something similar (small family wedding, big party after) and everyone said, “you have to wear your wedding dress!!”  The more I thought about it, the more excited I got.  Not very many women get to wear their dres more than once!  

We ended up going in a different direction, and I’m still bummed I won’t get to wear my dress a second time!  🙂

Isn’t that the reason for destination weddings, so you can wear your dress more than once! Just kidding of course but its definitely a perk. Everyoene will want to see your dress so of course go for it.

I am getting married in Mexico and having a reception back here. I am wearing my dress but our reception has turned into a full blown wedding reception. I think you can wear your dress because everyone will want to see you in it anyways. That is the perk of having a destination wedding!! 🙂
