    I don’t think B or C are really appropriate for anything but the most casual weddings, weddings in Vegas, or some other very narrow circumstances.

    katy498: Considering my dress is costing anywhere between 12-15K and will be my dream gown, no, I will not be having a second one. There would be no point for me. The straps are going to be removable though so essentially I’ll have three different styles for the top.

    As for your choices, I like “C”. It really depends on the style of your wedding but if I’m basing it on mine, “A” is far too casual and “B” is too “party party” and slightly tacky (a lot of girls in my area would wear that clubbing).

    I want to, but our reception is short (4 hours) and our photographer is staying until after the reception to take some nighttime pictures of us outside our venue because I didn’t want to miss any of the reception.  My gown is a silk a-line (fairly full skirt) so it’s super light but I’m worried the skirt will feel bulky.

    I am having a second dress but only because I had exchanged my original dress and had credit left and fell in love with 2 nd dress and with the credit only cost me 80 bucks lol.

    I love your dress. I guess out of the 3 options I’d choose A but if I was in your position is be in your gorgeous dress all night long.

    I am wearing two dresses or ao dai to be specific (vietnamese traditional wedding dress).

    I’m wearing a traditional red colored lace ao dai for my ceremony. Then for the reception I’m wearing a white lace ao dai. Ao dai are pretty affordable compared to western wedding dresses. So, it was easy to get two.


    Out of your options, I would choose A. I agree with PP that the other two seem odd for a wedding reception that you’ve described.

    Originally I didn’t plan on it but now that FI’s family wants to throw us an after party (we are having a afternoon wedding and reception, they want to throw a dinner) I am thinking I will grab something else to wear.

    katy498:  I changed and I’m glad I did. I loved being in my wedding dress, but moving around  (and eating lol!) in my reception dress was just so much easier.

    katy498:  Yay for the Dakota! 

    And I love the crop version! It looks quite bridal still! 🙂 The other two are not really my kind of thing but if they are yours… 🙂

    I voted no and none of the above. TBH I think you’d be a lot warmer in the short dresses with long sleeves than a strapless gown.
