    My dress was heavy and long as well. I opted for a sheath wedding gown (no train) as my 2nd dress though.

    I got one!  My wedding dress is HUGE and I don’t want to destroy it on the dance floor.

    I thought about it but changed my mind.  The dress I bought isn’t super heavy, but at the end of the day I figured I could wear a short white dress any other day in my life – this was the one time I’d be wearing a wedding dress, and by god, I’m going to milk this opportunity as much as possible.

    I really considered and and I still am.. mmm, I dunno!!

    I cant justify spending more money.. I went over budget on my gown.. sometimes I think i should suck it up and wear it all night, even though its super heavy. Im never going to wear it again and i think its beautiful so I may as well.

    I will only be wearing my wedding dress but I have to change before I leave otherwise my ball gown will be travelling with us on a cruise ship… So I do have a 2nd dress but it’s a grand exit short white dress…

    Here it is:

    to dress it up I added a little jacket that matches my wedding shoes so perfectly!

    I just cannot bring myself to spend the extra money on it. It will be hard enough for me to spend 1K or more on a dress so you better believe I will be wearing it for as long as I possibly can! 🙂

    I found a dress that is grey on the bottom (fitted) with a flowy top that is white. I will most likely change for the last hour of the reception, and to leave the venue in. My Fiance wil be wearing gray slacks with a white shirt and I think it will be cute to have pics of us in matching clothes that isn’t so “bridal”

    I only spent $50 on it!

    @HappilyEverAfter54:  That ensemble you’ve put together is beautiful! Love the shrug, shoes and necklace and the neckline of your getaway dress!

    @Brielle:  thank you! The necklace part is actually part of the dress… it’s a halter top. I figured that would be nice so I could avoid having to change jewlery (because I want photos as we exit) this way I can take the jewelry off and have a more relaxed but still elegant look.
