I’m interested in seeing pictures of brides who have taken the same dress and accessorized it differently for the ceremony vs the reception.
I was thinking about this because my Fiance prefers a more traditional look while I am more “offbeat.” I don’t want two dresses (I’m sewing my own dress, I definitely don’t want to make ANOTHER ONE) so maybe this is a good compromise? Traditional for the ceremony and then I add some flair for the party?
This was the only example I’ve found so far…

@stargurl101: I absolutely love your dress. You look gorgeous in both “versions”!

Ceremony/first look: White/rhinestone belt, veil, pearl earrings, hair up.
Reception/after: Navy sash, rhinestone earrings, hair down, no veil.

Bump for more! I’m considering this as well.
When did you ladies switch to your reception look? Did you take pictures with each?

@Pinkmoon: We had a break between ceremony and reception in our room so we could eat… My Maid/Matron of Honor came up about 20 minutes later to help me change everything. We took formal photos (with families, bridal party, etc) with the ceremony look and then did more casual photos of just the two of us after the reception.

I came into the reception with my reception look which is the first time anyone would have seen it. Mostly, I didn’t want to get too hot and be able to move my arms around which the lace overlay didn’t really allow me to do. For all my formal photos I have the ceremony look and all my reception photos I have the reception look.

@OldMrsMcDonald: I like that…jacket thing…you’re wearing. I hate my arms, so I would like to get one. I am not very girly and I don’t know what accessories are called, lol.
