Have you considered bustling it for the reception?

Yep, bustle. 

If you want another dress then do it! It’s your day!

And sometimes the second dress might be cheaper to get your dress bustled. It also depends on how much you love your dress. There are brides that wish they kept the same dress throughout the event looking back.

I didn’t want a bustle as I have a big butt lol and I fell in love with this lush dress at DB so using it for reception and have a traditional gown for ceremony and pictures.

It is the dress I would probably get if I get a reception dress, a prom dress.
