There are dozens of posts here about brides doing just that. Search reception dress.

That’s a great compromise, to have a ceremony dress and a reception dress…you do what you feel is best. If your mom is helping funding the wedding I think personally she should be able to give her two cents, and maybe you can take her opinion into consideration but don’t compromise what you want for your wedding. Like I said though, have two different dresses is a great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚ Make sure you budget in both though! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have two dresses and I am in love with my receptiond dress.  It was the one I found first.  Maybe you could print up some of the posts about it and show trem to her.  Maybe she will be better about it once she sees how common it it.  I could not imagine wearing my ceremony dress all night as it is heavy and would be really cumbersome trying to dance in it at a June wedding.

I think Meliss is selling 3 of her gorgeous gowns.  Also I saw that Cherimoya got an Alure L301 or 8766 through Pearls Place that sounded like something you might really like.  Good luck. Keep us posted ๐Ÿ™‚

I was having the same problem with my future mother in law. I have already bought and sold one dress, then bought another. My first dress was a big ballgown and now I have a short vintage looking dress with an old hollywood feel to it, my Fiance mom hates it and said that it doesn’t look bridal enough. One Sunday at dinner I had had enough of her opinions about my dress and my wedding, so I very politly informed her that 25 years ago she got to have her wedding the way she wanted, and now I would get to have my wedding the way I want it.

I must have got my point across because there has been no snarkiness from her since!


I sold my original ballgown on http://www.preownedweddingdress.com they have lots of great dresses to look at. Another good site is http://www.oncewed.com  and also http://www.bravobride.com
