    @greenidlady:  I think you’d made a fierce linebacker in that fur bolero! 😉  The first thing I did when I opened this thread was go “woooo!”  I like your first dress way better than this one.  I can understand why you would want something ligheter, but I really like the first one a lot more than this one.

    I used to like the idea of a reception dress but after finding my dress I realized – why would you ever want to take it off when you only get to wear it on one day!?! just my opinion.

    @greenidlady:  As beautiful as you look in the above dress, I do feel that your original dress is gorgeous enough that you should just wear that one all day!  Just get it bustled. 🙂

    @greenidlady: Both are beautiful, but why wear two? Your first is so stunning. If it within budget it, and you want it, then go for it, but either way you’ll look stunning. (Or if you have enough money to buy a second dress, keep the first and donate the cost of a second to a charity. I’m a big mush ball at heart, so I just thought I would suggest it :] )


    P.S. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t like that bolero… at all. It looks like cotton balls, or maybe frosty the snowman. Are you able to put your arms down with it on?

    I think it’s a gorgeous dress and it would make a great reception dress.

    i am not against brides changing into different dresses for reception (very normal in chinese weddings) however i love your first dress! so i would stick with that since your reception here is still very bridal… unless you plan to wear something more party like then i would say pass and just wear your first dress 🙂

    I would just wear your first dress.  I’m not against two dresses in theory..but usually the reception dress doesn’t compare to the first dress so I’d feel let down you changed.  Your first dress is beautiful!  So I’d be a little sad you changed out of it Smile

    And for the bolero…PP made me laugh with the “linebacker” comment..but what first came to my mind was the Hulk.  So I’d say no to the bolero! Smile
