    location wise it might make sense but if you love it so much, why change it just because someone else says so…..

    I don’t think you should change out of your gown unless that’s something you personally had your heart set on doing.

    It’s your wedding day, and you have a beautiful wedding gown that you love! It shouldn’t matter at all  that your reception is not in some large, hotel ballroom but, rather an upscale restaurant. It’s still your wedding reception, and it’s completely acceptable — expected even — for you to attend your wedding reception in your beautiful wedding dress. 🙂

    @sheepandbear:  Where are you concerned that it may cause irritation to your skin?

    You’re the bride, it is very hard to be over dressed. I say wear the dress you love all day! When else in your life will you wear a big poofy ball gown??!

    I agree with everyone else — if you love your dress, don’t let others force you into changing!  When else are you going to wear that beautiful gown??

    @sheepandbear:  Love the dress! Can you just take out the petticoat and bustle it?

    And maybe switch to a plain or blingy belt?
