    Your wedding dress is so pretty, I would just keep that on. The reception dress is ok but not beautiful the way the wedding dress is (IMO).

    Depending on your wedding colors you could potentially pull it off. I love the choice for your dress change, the style is so pretty and the colors is amazing. Personally, I spend all that money on my dress that I would want to wear it all night. But the choice is yours and the dresses are both beautiful.

    Stick with your wedding dress!

    The blue dress is pretty, but not very bridal and not worth changing out of your beautiful dress IMO.

    I love the dress….where did you get it?  I think it’s great for what you’re wanting it for…it’s still sparkly,  long, & elegant.  Go for it! But I want that dress too so where’s it from?

    I love love love the blue dress. Your wedding gown is gorgeous, too, of course – but the blue dress would be great for the reception! Especially if you’re worried about being hot 🙂

    normally i would say go for it because i love colored gowns…but your wedding dress is so pretty that i would make the most of it.

    if it gets hot or it’s too long or you’re uncomfortable, feel free to change. no one will mind i’m sure.

    brinny04:  wow you got a great deal! Thank you for sharing where you got it. I don’t think I’ll be paying $278 for it lol, but it is definitely an amazing dress. I actually like it better than the gold one you’re drooling over! It’s just so perfect for a “2nd half of the reception dress”….& now you’ll have that gorgeous dress to wear to special occasions & maybe someone else’s wedding 🙂

    ohh I love the gold one!  The blue is super pretty too.

    I had a ‘just-in-case’ dress if i got too hot/sweaty/stepped on it/etc.  I ended up putting it on during the last 30 minutes of the reception and wore it to the after party.  So I’m allll for that.
