    @ChessiLeanne:  No I think it’s great if you want to wear it the whole time! My cousin’s advice to me was she knew she loved her dress so much she wouldn’t want to get out of it. And when else will you have a chance to wear that beautiful dress? I say wear it as long as you want to!

    @ChessiLeanne:  I am planning on wearing my wedding dress all the way up to the after party.  Initially i bought a reception dress, but it didn’t fit the way i wanted it to.

    I love my dress. Why would I want to take it off a half hour later?

    @ChessiLeanne:  When I got married the first time, and this time as well. I will wear my dress all day. Both men wanted me to have it on that night.

    Did not work out so well with the first. Should have been a sign of what was to come in that marriage!

    I voted maybe…. because technically it’s one dress and one sari. I’ll wear my wedding dress for the Christian ceremony, a sari for the Hindu ceremony, then back into my wedding dress for the reception (and I’ll leave in it too).

    After wearing my big, poufy, corset back dress for 2 hours at my first alterations appointment, I am very afraid I’m going to die being laced up in that thing all day…  My plan it to bring one of my many white dresses (one I will wear for the rehearsal or bachelorette or even a shower) so that if just loosening doesn’t help, I will have an alternative that is still cute, but much comfier.  Otherwise I am afraid I’ll either die or end up in pajamas, and that would be pretty awful either way…  So I’m a maybe!

    I am keeping that dress on until the last possible moment. It will be the last weddig dress I wear so I am going to milk it for all its worth!

    I’m having two dresses, since we’re having the ceremony on one evening and the reception the next day. I have one dress for the ceremony and the reception and then another dress for dinner after the ceremony, so that the (main/first) dress is sure to stay clean for the reception 🙂

    @ChessiLeanne:  It is perfectly fine to wear your gown the entire time if you love it!  I will be wearing mine for my entire event, because never again will I get to wear a wedding gown.  I want to make it last!

    If you’re going from the reception to someplace else and not using a limo, I think it makes perfect sense to change!

    Personally, I did NOT want to change out of my dress! But it was 53lbs, and we did dancing like 5 hours after our reception ended (we went out dancing that night), so I had a second, tea-length dress I wore for that!

    @ChessiLeanne:  When I got married I wore my dress all the way to the honeymoon hotel. And even then I was like “Do you think I could go to dinner in this thing?” Of course I did not. (I had an afternoon wedding with a dessert only reception)

    I think the norm is to have just 1 dress, a reception or exit dress is more like an extra so don’t worry about it 🙂 Your dress is lovely btw
