Hey Bee’s I really love lace fit and flare dresses like the one below…but they are hard to sit and move around in, and I must comofortable while I eat dinner at the reception, so I’m definitley going to get a reception dress to change into before dinner.
However, I can make up my mind. Should I go with something short like a party dress, or something long and flowy and comfy?
What do you think Bee’s Short and fun OR long and comfy? Please post your ceremony and reception dresses! I would love to see them!

Personally, I don’t like the idea of having two dresses. Maybe its because I love my wedding dress so much that I just want to wear it all the time LoL.
IF I had to do a ceremony dress, I wouldn’t pick a short one because I would feel like I am just a guest.

My wedding dress was a modified A-line but had a train and was to be laced up tight – not conducive to dancing, which I planned to do plenty of. I bought an inexpensive reception dress which was like a mini version of my wedding dress, complete with similar 3D flowers.
I highly recommend getting the beautiful gown you’re always dreamed of and changing into something more practical. It’s the best of both worlds.
(BTW, I’m reselling both of my dresses. If anyone is interested, email me.)

Im going to get a reception dress because my ceremony dress was very expensive. and since im going to sell it after the wedding i want to make sure it doesnt get damaged at all.
I love that pinky flowy dress! Where is it from? I tried a similar one on 6 months ago but couldnt find anything with the skirt like that!

I wanted the dream princess dress,but also wanted a sexy trendy dress. I couldnt find the perfect mix of both so i decided on one of each lol this is my ceremony dress (i have a different less gaudy sash though) its the matthew christopher chloe
and the recption dress. A mash up of 2 inbal drors im getting made. Itll have a very minimal, pointed Train, and will just be light, airy and easy to move in.

@lina010: I think it depends on your wedding style… is it black tie/semi-formal/casual? if everyone else is going to be in long dresses (your bm at least) i think you should also be in a long dress so that you don’t look out of place… i.e. too casual… but if BMs and most other guests are in short dress you can do either length… IMO of course 🙂 either way both dresses are lovely you can’t go wrong

great point! my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses will be long and flowy so the long blush one would work well with them and I’ll still look like the bride.

I’m not really into the two dress thing either. BUT if you have to have two I think the reception dress should be short. What’s the point in changing into another long dress? Might as well be something you can dance in!
Mine’s a fit and flare like the first picture but I’m wearing that baby all day because it makes me look awesome.
Just don’t get 2 for the sake of getting 2. I looked at someone’s photos who bought (IMO) an cheaper wedding dress and then a cheaper reception dress. I didn’t like either. She could have doubled her budget and 1 dress that was by far prettier than the 2 she had.

The blush dress got my vote although I do quite like the short one as well. Perhaps it could be a rehearsal or bachelorette party dress?
I’m planning on wearing a red drop-waist ballgown for the ceremony and the majority of the reception, and then changing into a black trumpet gown for the dancing.
