    honestly if you have them both and can’t sell them then i don’t see any reason why not to wear them, you know?

    Why not – if there is ever a day to be girly and self-endulgant – it is your wedding day.  (I’m not super-girly but ended up with a super frilly dress!) Have fun!  (BTW – I love, love the second dress!!!)

    If you have them both and will have time for a wardrobe change go for it! ;0) You can always sell later!

    From those pictures, the two dresses look very similar. Both are strapless, both have similar detailing, both look to have the same boddice and neckline. I guess one is more ball gown and the other is more a-line, but honestly, there are going to be a lot of people who probably wont even notice you changed dresses.

    I accidentally clicked “two is too much” (oops) so subtract one vote from there because I think two is fine. Lots of people do two… I probably will.  If you’re on the fence, try selling one and let whether or not it sells be the determining factor.  Both are very cute though and I think the fact that they’re such different sillhouettes makes it make sense.  Remember though (and this is what I keep trying to remind myself), two dresses = two preservations, two alterations, possibly two sets of undergarments and accessories, etc..  If money and time aren’t issues though, go for it!

    I think you can wear both dresses, but I also think it may be awkward trying to change in the middle of the day.  I had intended to change into a “going away” outfit after our reception, and by the end I just couldn’t be bothered!  I was tired and just wanted to get to the hotel!

    they’re both beautiful dresses, but i feel that they’re kind of similar. when i think of reception dress, i think of a more slimmer, or short dress that is easier to dance in, while both of these have a fuller skirt and would defeat this purpose. but like everyone said, it’s your wedding, so if you want to wear both of your dresses, go for it!

    I’m doing everything in my power to not go and try on another dress, so if I can’t be a two dress bride, and you already have two dresses, you could be one for me!

    My vote’s a little biased because I plan to change for the reception.
