I have caved and to all the voices in my head… they tell me I was a fool for getting the most absurdly large tule ball gown I could find. For an outdoor August wedding?? What was I thinking. There is a high probability its going to be melt the make up off your face hot!
I went back to try my dress on after I bought it and while shopping for BM dresses. Im sorry girls, but my ass was sweating and I was only in an over crowded bridal shop… Panic was planted at that moment. That was back in January, it took me this long to finally break and cheat on my dress. Today I went and tried on some light chiffon and tea length dresses.
How does this second dress thing work? Do you have to kind of match this dress to your wedding like the first one? Do they have to match each other in any way? Can one be ivory and one be white? LoL So many thoughts went through my head today and I had to come here for help!

@Nel13: I don’t think there are really any rules for your reception dress. Really, just whatever you’re going to feel comfortable in, long or short! 🙂 Best of luck to you!

@Nel13: I’ve always wanted to wear a ball gown but once i started trying on dresses, I kinda fell for the mermaid cut. But I wanted to wear something timeless… So I simply wore both haha (Ball gown is timeless, mermaid more likely a trend).
Here are my two babies:

@Nel13: I bought a dress that is two-in-one, but do whatever you want and is comfortable!

Ceremony Dress (Destination Wedding). It’s prettier in person.
We’re having 2 receptions about a month after the wedding (in 2 different states). This is what I’m wearing to those. I’m not wearing the blue sash though.
So they are sort of similar I guess, both lace 🙂 I don’t think they need to match, but I think the overall look should be cohesive so if someone sees your dresses together, it doesn’t look random.
