I have a quick question- I decided to buy 2 dresses. One is for the ceremony and traditional part of the reception (first dance, dinner, cake cutting etc) but I was going to change into a much more relaxed (lighter) dress for the last hour or 2 in the reception. Really the party part of the night, lol. So I really wasn’t looking for a standard wedding dress since I will only wear it to dance and relax with family and friends. It will be a classic yet elegant long white dress. My Fiance knows I was considering getting 2 dresses. So can I show this second dress to my FI? I am not showing him my ceremony dress until I walk down the aisle.

I think this it is fine for him to see the reception dress unless you just feel strongly about surprising him. I think you should just pop out of no where in a new dress and surprise him!

@Willow1991: Lol, thanks. I might just ask him if he wants to see the reception dress and call it a day. He might not even want to see it until the day.

I totally empathize. I bought a offwhite ruffly dress that could be both a rehearsal dinner or a casual reception dress and i’m DYING to show the Fiance (it’s more fun to share the excitement) But I’ve held off because I think my man would like it more if he were surprised.
Honestly I think either way you go is fine since you’re already keeping the formal one a secret. If you can hold off showing him the second dress too, I say why not. But if you’re itching to show him, I think it’ll be ok. Let us know what you decide!
