@CountryRose:  Sigh…my dress is heavy too and I kind of want a reception dress, but I don’t think I can fit one in our budget.  I really love my dress and want to wear it all night, but dang is it heavy!

@CountryRose:  I will be wearing a reception dress however, I will not show you because it might make you afraid of the reception dress hah!  I picked a dress that was easier to dance in and showed off my personality.  It was definitely cheaper than my wedding dress.  And I figure if it comes down to it and I just don’t feel like changing I don’t have to.

I had a reception dress! I only wore it for the last hour of my reception, when the big ballgown started to bug me dancing (people stepping on it, etc) I got it for an awesome deal, $100 on Ideeli (retails for $500!)

Here’s the model pic of my lovely!

@prisigtr:  Maybe just bring a change of comfy shoes?  You could also check Goodwill stores around prom.

My dress was really heavy but once you have it on you won’t want to take it off! I thought it would be an issue but it really wasn’t, I didn’t even think about it the day of the wedding and am really glad I stuck with just the one dress.

Ever since I have been dreaming of my wedding, I knew I wanted a reception dress.  But now I am not so sure… I love my wedding dress so much, I kinda don’t want to take it off, plus I think it would be fun to arrive at our wedding night hotel in my gown.  We’ll see…. still debating.

Anyway the reception dress I have been eyeing (it’s perfect and I have been looking for something like it for a while now) is a little over $50.  I am thinking if I want to spend the money on the dress or use it for something else in the wedding…we’ll see.

I originally liked the idea of two dresses, having a short fun party dress for the reception. But now, even though my dress is extremely heavy and the wedding will be in July, I know I’m not getting another one. I love my dress too much and I’m only going to get to wear it one day!
