Wow, I am SO glad you decided to do pics first unaltered. And it does look like a totally different dress, but I love it!!! I think you mom is going to be so happy to get those pics of you in the before, and just as happy to see you in it as a reception dress.

Maybe afterwards, you can dye it ala Sherry on Young House Love did her wedding dress so you could wear it afterwards http://www.younghouselove.com/2008/10/i-wanted-to-dye/

Wow, that’s a perfect solution, plus it’s like you have 2 dresses! 

Looks so good, and I’m glad you took the pictures of yourself in it beforehand: the pictures (and you) are gorgeous.

I love the pic of you in your mom’s dress! So pretty.  She will LOVE and CHERISH that! I also like that you’re able to wear her gown in a very modified, updated manner to your Rehearsal Dinner.  I’m sure that will be very special for your mother and also for you! Congrats on your creative and successful solutions!!
