If you don’t want to change the dress, change the first dance?

If your gown is easy to get in and out of I say go for it!

For me, it took a team of three and a broken false nail to get me into mine, so I would have cried at the thought lol.

Hmmm, maybe then change the time of your first dance till after dinner? That way you can use dinner time to go change. You’ll still have the dress you love for the majority of the night (speeches, entertainment, etc.). Plus, after your first dance, it may be easier to do open floor dancing in a different, short dress, so that’s a bonus! Since your first dance seems fast and fun, it may be a great opener to open floor dancing (as opposed to a traditional slow song).

Keep in mind though that going up to your room to change and come back down will likely take at least half an hour, so you may not have much time to do the “meet and greet” at dinner tables if you were planning to do that. Also consider if changing will mess up your hair at all. I’m changing dresses for my reception, but I’m also using that time for a hairstyle change and makeup touch up.
