    Do it! Especially if you’re worried about being too hot/uncomfortable. It’s getting more and more popular because people are realizing how awesome it is. Also, a different going away outfit is a great idea. Who wants to lug a heavy dress around all night long?!

    @Bebealways:  Might as well if you have both dresses! I’ll be doing a dress change for cultural reasons. I don’t think I would otherwise unless I found a second dress for a steal of a price like you did.

    If you love both dresses, then wear both! Especially since I can’t imagine you would have an occasion to wear the second one any time soon

    Go for it! It’s not like either of them look the same. And it’s no use having your dream dress if you’re sitting there doing nothing at the reception because it’s uncomfortable.

    P.S. Cool vibe you’ve got going there with the tatts and the dresses. Are you having a steampunk theme?

    If you love both, definitely wear both! Even if you didn’t have the blue dress, I would have recommended you getting a reception dress to change into. Speaking from previous experience, trying to eat/dance/refrain from passing out from heat stroke in a steel-boned corset is a nightmare, and not something you should have to endure on your wedding day! You want to be comfortable and relaxed, and it sounds like the blue dress ticks the boxes for that.

    That black and white dress is amazing. Was that originally your fave? It knocks the other one out of the water! By all means change into the blue for your reception, but I’d hold out as long as possible before you do.

    @Bebealways:  Then switch to blue! But I gotta be honest, that black and white would be the winner for me. Where did you get it from?

    I’m just doing one dress all day, but that’s b/c I’ll be getting an expensive (for me, not in comparison) typical bridal gown.

    If you have and love both, do it!

    @Bebealways:  Awesome. I might have to get myself something steampunk at some stage. I’ll have to tone it down though, because Fiance is quite conservative and he’ll pull a face otherwise (we’re an odd pair, on the surface. He dresses like my grandpa, and I’m all pierced and tattooed up)!

    Definately do both! You already own both, and when else in your life are you allowed to feel like a rock star? Also, I feel like it somehow fits your style (just based on your posts, tats, etc)- edgy, unexpected and fabulously fun!

    I’m just going to have the one. But I think you should wear both of your dresses! Sounds like the perfect plan to be comfortable and look amazing all night 🙂
