@MelBel:  I say wear them both! Sounds like you’d like to. I don’t see a problem with it!

I’d probably wear the one for ceremony through dinner and then switch for the dancing part of the reception. You would have to do something about the train though. 

That’s what I am planning to do. I am using a more expensive and traditional looking dress for the ceremony, but I got a more “trendy”, fun dress without a train to wear for the reception.

I’d wear them both! Personally I don’t consider two dresses to be excessive.

I’d wear the second one and continue to try and sell the first one.

i’d wear one for the ceremony and dinner – then change for your first dance and the rest of the night

I’d wear the second one and sell the first! Do you have pics of yourself in either dress? That will help us give advice!

Lace for the ceremony and maybe dinner, and the first dress for the party? Or you could go by the level of comfort (most comfy dress for reception). Either way you can’t miss! Very pretty dresses.

Both dresses are nice. I agree with @peonyinlove wear one through dinner and change for dancing. I would do the old dress for the ceremony and the new dress for the party.

Which feels most comfortable? My second dress is being bought on a comfort basis!

Oops edit: in case it wasn’t clear- second dress for evening reception. We’ve hired a female group called the bombshell belles- think something more 1940s is appropriate!

The Allure is the best dress by far… stunning!

I would wear the lace one only. IMHO, the first one is not a reception dress, but the lace one is definitely a ceremony/reception dress.

BUT if you do want to wear both, then I recommend wearing the lace for the ceremony and the first for the reception/dancing.

*As for the “excessiveness” of multiple dresses, I say f*&@ that! Multiple dress changes are a part of my culture, and my aunt even told me she expects no less than 5 dresses for my wedding! Of course, I won’t disappoint 🙂
