I’m definitely not changing!! I love my dress too much to get out of it before I absolutely have to! Plus, Fiance and I aren’t so much leaving as we are walking across the venue to go to our hotel room (it’s a wedding venue and a small hotel), so it’s kind of silly!

I don’t know, it depends on how heavy my dress is! But I’ll probably wear it the whole night- only get to wear one of those suckers once!

It never occurred to me to change. I think it’s a small minority of people who do change, at least in the parts of the US I’ve been to weddings … (Northeast, California, Florida)

We decided to wear out our wedding stuff and I don’t regret it because of the pics, but I do know that uttered “oh my damn, I wish I had gotten a reception dress” more than twice during the reception!!

I’m not changing either. And I doubt we’ll really “exit”, because I plan on partying all. night. long. Laughing

I’m not changing. It just seems like a waste to me to buy TWO dresses I’ll only wear once. I’m also not exiting. We will likely even meet up with friends/family in bar after the reception and continue the party. Everyone is from out of town and our families don’t get together often.

I didn’t change.  Though it was us pulling into the house that night in our wedding clothes, not a hotel.  So romantic lol.

I think I’ll stick it out in the dress all night.  I guess I should bring a backup just in case my dress gets annoying.  I doubt it will though but I have heard some horror stories about faulty bustles.

The little white dresses that alfred angelo sells are amazing, but i love my dress too darn much to change out of it. @Laylabelle-i bet i will have wished i had changed but since i got my bustle i think ill be a-okay.

I do however want to shorten my dress after i wear it andd im still wondering about that.

So, no, youre not the only one wearing your dress all night long.. i mean its only one day you get to wear it, so keep it on as long as you can!!

I haven’t really thought of what I plan on doing— depends on how much I’ve dropped on the dress, i suppose!! I doubt we’ll have much of a budget for “costume changes”

I’m not sure what I’m doing yet… I’m a little afraid that if I don’t change, I won’t fit in the car at the end of the night. 😉

We didn’t have a fancy limo either.  It was just our regular car that we drove every other day!  So glamorous!
