(Closed) Reception Dress Anyone??

    No way girl that's trashy! Find a knee length dress instead.

    Go for it...it is Mexico after all!

    It would depend on the dress...(please explain)

    I like the idea of changing dresses, but if I were to do it I’d have a ‘cutting the cake’ dress where I change after dinner.  I think the ceremony is too short to only wear your real gown for.. but that’s just my opinion because I love my dress!

    I don’t get the whole reception dress thing as a whole.  If I’m gonna spend hundreds of dollars on a big ball gown I only get to wear once in my life, I’m going to wear it as long as humanly possible.  It’s hard for me to justify paying that much for a dress for one day, much less only a couple of hours!

    Of course, if you’re going to be absolutely dying in Mexico heat, I can see where having a lighter, more casual dress for later might be a good idea. 🙂

    You only get to wear a wedding dress one day of your life so why not wear as many as you can!

    I think you should go for it. Its your day do whatever you want!

    I saw this Priscilla of Boston dress that I absolutely love for a reception dress.


    I’m having a dressmaker make something just like it
