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!  Tongue Out

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. 🙂
