    I’m not wearing one but I think they are really fun 🙂 I want to be in my wedding dress as long as I possibly can…and I’m not having an after party and my reception is pretty formal so I’ll stay in my dress.

    Any pics of ones that you are thinking of? I love pictures 😉

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE my wedding dress, and I am going to wear that sucker for as long as humanly possible.  Then again, my dress is not overly ball-gownish or heavy, so dancing the night away shouldn’t be a problem.  Had I gone with a more elaborate gown, I might be singing a different tune.  And most reception dresses I have seen others do have been either white or ivory.

    I haven’t decided yet if I am going to try and have an after party, but if I do, I would have another dress (that could *finally* be my excuse to buy a totally spangly mini-dress or something– how fun would that be?)

    I thought about it, because I LOVE to dance, and thought it might give me a bit more freedom to move.  But, I think I’m going to want to keep it on for as long as possible.

    yeah i will wear just one dress and only one! i knew that if i wanted to wear one dree for the day it was supposed to be comfy, light material and not puffy, so i choose for a  mermaid/a line style.. well if you have extra money go for it, but i still think everyone should wear the dress thet got marry into the whole day!

    I want to be in my dress for as long as possible like some of the other bees mentioned.  One of my requirements is that it’s something I can get down in!

    While I think its really cute, I dare not change after all the money I spent on my wedding gown. I’m going to sleep in that sucker if I can.  May not be expensive  by other peoples measures but its hard earned money to me! $1035 in case anyone is wondering.

    I won’t have a reception dress – I’m staying in mine like the others girls said – as long as possible!  I am probably going to have a second dress though for other things.  My family is hosting a day-after party/open house at OUR house and I want to come home from the hotel in something pretty and fun!  I’ve had my eye on one at David’s since the first time I saw it and it just went on the $99 sale today!

    We leave the next day for (likely) Hawaii – I would also think about wearing it on the plane and see if we can get some extra special service or upgrade!

    If you get your dream dress, trust me you will not want to take it off after an hour or two!  No way!

    I want to have a second party dress, but my mom surprised me and paid for my wedding dress, so I couldn’t change after a few hours, plus I really love my dress…but I would like a shorter dress to show off my awesome shoes…

    My dress weighs about a thousand pounds (you should see what’s going on inside that dress…a hoop, a million crinolines, boning…), and I can understand why someone with such a dress would want to switch for the reception. But my dress is MY BABY, not to mention, at $10k, it leaves NEGATIVE room in the budget for another dress. I will probably have to sell my dress after the wedding, so I will be wearing it as long as possible!
