    I think its really cute! Maybe you could dye it, get it professionally dyed another color?

    I think you could totally wear the short dress again!  If you dyed it, it would be perfect for another wedding…. and if you decide to keep it ivory, you could dress it down with a cardigan and funky jewelry during the summer for a night out.  Very pretty =)

    I say go with the short dress.  I think the look of it is more appropriate for a wedding in Hawaii.  The long version doesn’t particularly wow me, and certainly doesn’t scream Hawaiian Nuptials! But I absolutely love the way the short version looks on you.  I think it’ll be perfect for the wedding, and you could realistically get some use out of it after you are married.  I honestly don’t even think you have to dye it to wear it somewhere else.

    doooooo it!  I know tons of people that had short wedding dresses and opted to change them up a little so they could wear them again!  You’re paying for it, you might as well wear it more than once!

    I know a lady who was a slightly mature bride and she wore a slim charmuse dress that she has worn again to black tie functions.

    You shouldn’t ask your Fiance, guys don’t have a clue what “people do” and that price is totally not bad.

    You could totally wear that dress again. Especially if you could dye it a different color. It’s super cute and fits you great!

    i think you gotta work out if whether down the track you would regret not wearing a long dress to your wedding.  and if it’s not something that would concern you, then you could go for just the short dress.  

    however i think that since the dress has the option of going both why not do it?  it’s great and you’ll get to have your bride-y moment in a long dress down the aisle, then party the rest of the night away in your sassy shorter dress.

    i know the alterations seem pricey, but in effect you’re getting a second wedding dress for a pretty good price.  and because weddings are a penultimate day it’s worthwhile investing in what YOU want.  so work out what YOU want and do that 🙂

    Even if you don’t dye the short dress portion, wear it again with some badass jewelry and/or a cardi for your anniversary each year! It will be perfect for the nice dinner he shoud be taking you to :o)

    Go for it – most of us girls are spending oodles and we will never wear our long dresses again. It sounds ike you’ve gotten a great overall price, PLUS an option a lot of other brides don’t have. Wins all around.
