    I would wear it to both! Just avoid red drinks/food.

    I’d for sure wear it to both.  Just be careful, as PP said, with red wine etc.  How far apart are the ceremonies? Most stains can be dry-cleaned out.

    @Sevillealaube:  Then I think worst-case you’d be covered. 

    PS I love your dress!! It’s absolutely beautiful, and I’ve never really seen anything like it!

    Your dress is so beautiful, I would want to wear it to both! Is it too formal for a civil ceremony though? When you say civil ceremony, do you mean a simple courthouse/registration type ceremony or a proper wedding event? 

    Having said all of that, I’m always up for a good excuse to buy another pretty dress. 😉 There are for sure so many cute tea length dresses out there – I saw, if you find one you love, you should get it. 🙂

    I am also having two ceremonies (one in the US and one in Australia) and was originally planning on two dresses, but it took me SO LONG to find a dress I loved (because I don’t want to wear white) that I don’t think I could muster up the effort to do it all over again for a second dress 😛

    We’re doing one ceremony, but three receptions for similar resons to your own (USA, Peru, and Chile). At the moment I’m planning to just wear the long dress all three times. For me part of the excitement is taking it to show to the old/infirm relatives who can’t make it to the official wedding in the US. They probably want to see the dress more than some of the relatives who CAN make it. 

    On the flip side, a friend did her civil ceremony in England in a beautiful tea-length dress then months later did the big shindig in Italy with a full white gown. Her photos from both are great. I say go with your gut–do you truly WANT two dresses? If so, there’s no harm in that.
