    I am honestly surprised that he cares. However, I was surprised at how strong of an opinion my fiance had about dresses- he didn’t like short or poofy.

    Maybe he thinks you are being high maintenence? I can’t see how it’s an issue, especially since both are paid for!

    I’m a one dress girl, but my sister is doing 2. She found a really great deal at Running of the brides and has a princess dress for the ceremony/first dance and a dress that is more her for the rest of the reception.

    I am wondering the same thing!

    My mom says yes, my dad says are you nuts and my fiance thinks that I should have whatever I want?

    We had two brides and a budget wedding, so we were trying to keep the cost of dresses down as much as we could.  We had the same dress for each of us for ceremony and reception, even though the reception was three days after the ceremony.

    Wear the two dresses if you want to. Personally, I have all the support in the world for two-dress brides, but I could never ever do it. I love my wedding dress so much that it would break my heart in pieces to take it off after only the ceremony! I want to enjoy it for all the hours of the reception, and let it be featured in all the fun photos therein.
