I tried on my dress and it is BEAUTIFUL!!! However, it is a little on the heavy side and my Sister suggested that I purchase a 2nd dress. Honestly, I was thinking that my wedding dress was too pretty to take off! But I am considering a 2nd dress. What are your experiences with a reception gown? Why would you buy/not buy a reception gown? Please share….

I have not yet bought one, but I am considering it. If you look at David’s bridal they have reception dresses for around $100 so it’s not budget busting. That’s what I’m thinking of 🙂

“Why would you buy/not buy a reception gown?”
I already have a hard time thinking about the few hundred I paid for my wedding dress that is going to be used one day, but it wouldn’t set well with me to buy a dress to wear 30 minutes! I’d want to keep one gown on as long as possible to get my money’s worth!

I wore a heavy ballgown for my wedding. I had a backup dress that was much lighter and easier to manuver in. I regret not changing into it. I spent the whole night dragging around this heavy dress and by the end of the night I was exhausted. I don’t know what I was thinking in not changing but I really should have. That was my experience anyway.

I got two dresses because the photos after the ceremony are going to be on the beach and in the water and I did not want to have on a dirty wet dress. The second was is short and was more expensive but I am trilled about it! I was smart and got the second dress if dyed I can use it as a cocktail dress! I know it’s exsinsive but I oped out of a dress that was 999 and ended up with two one 578 and the second 698 which is only small amount more then the one I picked out the first go around. I think it will be fun and considering the first dress is long and I worked really darn hard for these legs I will get to show them off in the short one. 🙂
