@ChemistryBride: I saw that, and i asked my seamstress but the la sposa doesn’t allow for that because of the lace appliques in the front! But it was a great idea for finisterre! The finisterre tulle is much sturdier than the tulle on the denia it is like 1000 times more delicate.

Hey, if you can afford it, why not?

I think it’s totally understandable to change into a shorter dress for dancing and partying. Plus, short wedding dresses are frickin’ adorable In My Opinion, so basically, DO IT I LOVE IT OH GOD.
The only hypothetical situation I can imagine in which I’d be somewhat judgmental is (as others have said) is if the rest of the wedding really sucked. But really, that’d be the same if the bride had ONE really elaborate expensive dress and an otherwise crappy wedding reception, right?

If it were my choice…Dress 1 is so gorgeous that you’d have to rip it off of me to put on the Kenneth Pool.
I’ve only been to one 2-dress wedding. It was before I started learning about all things wedding myself, and I have to admit that it seemed extravagant and unusual to me at the time. More than that, I couldn’t understand why the bride who was wearing a top end Vera Wang Dress for her vows, quite possibly the most expensive garment I’d ever seen up close and personal at that time, chose to change into a dress that was so much less special (IMO) by comparison.
Therein lies the danger…most people will have a favorite dress…which means that one of your looks won’t measure up as well as the other…which would crunch my feeling of wedding day perfection.
But…those are my feelings, and it’s not my wedding. If you really, really want to wear 2 dress, then wear two.
Also, FWIW, I had a designer lace dress. I bought it prepared to eat the expense if someone wiped out on my with a glass of cabernet, but planned to sell it after the wedding. It was as perfect after the the shindig as it was before. I had it hemmed to be just slightly above the ground. The bustle was fine. As others said, it’s at your reception that your guests really get to see your dress.

Personally, I think 2 dresses are over the top. I have been to some weddings wear they changed their dresses, but it was more of a cultural thing. So that’s not exactly the same as changing just because you want to.
Despite what I think, if it’s in your budget and you want to change, that’s up to you since it is your wedding. You should do what you want for your wedding.
