I don’t think you have to convince him at all. You do what will make YOU happy. Especially if you’re just getting into a sheath, I doubt it’ll take longer than a few minutes and you’ll definitely be more comfortable.

That depends on you! What do you want to wear for your pictures of the first dance? Personally, I’d love to do my first dance in a big gown. It would feel very “happily ever after” fairytale, you know? Are you doing the first dance before or after dinner? That might make a difference too, because you might be more comfortable having dinner in the sheath.

I plan on changing my dress. My wedding dress is a beautiful gown but very heavy and gets hot quick. So i recently purchased a second lighter gown to wear at reception. I intend to keep wedding dress on for photos but then intende to change into the lighter gown. I say if you wanna rock both dresses go for it . You only get one wedding (hopefully lol)

If you wanted to buy a second dress, I’d be meh about it.  But since you had already purchased a dress and then you WON a second dress (so it was free), heck yeah you should wear both! What else would you ever do with two dresses?

Do it! Since you have the dresses already and time built in, its a win win!!!

Just tell Fiance its a once in a lifetime opportunity, you have both dresses already, and time built in. Maybe mention he could spend some time with the guys while you change or something so he gets sees it doesnt really affect(effect, i can’t ever remember which one to use!) him! 

Go girl!

Hey just do it.  What ‘s the time it takes to slip out of one dress and into another? 5 minutes maybe. Have someoneon hand to whisk away the ball gown and then wow them anew when you enter the reception.

I wore 3 dresses and it is completely doable. I wore A-line dress with a long cathedral train first. I wore it for outdoor photo shoot, 12-3pm, and ceremony, 4-5pm. I was in love with my first dress but it was very heavy and long. My bridesmaids and I were tired of carrying the dress around. After the ceremony, I was happy to switch to my reception dress, which was light-weight tulle dress. During the reception, I changed to tradiotional Asian dress and back to my reception dress. Each dress change took 10 min at the most. I think you should do it. You will regret it otherwise.
