Considering a fit & flare or A-line dress but I love to dance.
Did you wear a reception dress or dance all night in your ceremony gown?
Please post a pick of your dress and how your dancing experience at your reception.
Thanks a lot.

I had a modified A-line and I did have difficulty dancing, but it wasn’t because of the silhouette of the dress, but because the hem that looked so pretty for walking slowly was just a tiny bit too long for dancing.
I was able to hike it up and have the hem around my shins for the night. Problem solved and as an unexpected result, it cost a lot less to clean because the underside was barely dirty.
It was a modified A-line from Pronovias, but I don’t think it’s on their website anymore, sorry for the lack of a picture.

the woman that did my alterations advised me not to get a bustle because my train wasn’t really long enough. So I didn’t. I had to hold up the back of my dress all night because I couldn’t dance or turn without myself or someone else stepping on it. It was a pain.

My bustle busted and yeah THAT was a pain in the arse. But after a few drinks holding my small train wasn’t that big of a deal.
I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding where the bride had a 4ft train on her dress and the bustle busted also…. she just wrapped it around her arm and went back to dancing. She did her $1.00 dance (they are russian so it’s cultural) like that… in 6inch heels. She rocked!

I had NO problem dancing in my fit & flare! I am having trouble posting photos for some reason, but I’m commenting now so I will remember to try posting photos again later. 😀

Okay I’m back! First, you should know that I danced the whole freakin’ night. So it’s not like oh, yea I danced for 10 minutes and my dress held up fine. No. My photographers literally had to drag me off the floor to get more photos, no one could keep me away that night. 😉 Anyways. Photos.
I had a 3 point bustle and it held up all night. Here’s a slow dance:
And here I am rocking out with my Father-In-Law:

I had an A-line dress, and it was difficult to dance in. There was a lot of material, so I felt like I was taking up a lot of space on the dance floor. Also, the dress touched the floor, so people would occasionally step on it.

My dress was sort of a full a-line bordering on ballgown, and yes it was a pain to dance in. Mostly my issue was the length of the hem, and how HOT the dang thing was lol.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: No, it wasn’t nearly as hard as I expected it to be! What hurt the most were the high heel shoes. I couldn’t take them off because my dress was hemmed to my height with the shoes on or I would have stepped on my dress. Here is a pic of the dress. I also had a three point American bustle.

I chose my style of dress specifically so I could dance in it. As I told the consultant at the shop: “I need to be able to polka in this thing.” I did some practice Viennese waltz steps in the dress right there in the store, just to be sure!
