I’d wear the dress twice. From your description it sounds lovely but more casual and it wouldn’t be out of place at a pub reception. Unlike a full sparkly ballgown, say! 

Wearing it to both occasions means you get the fun and pleasure out of a special outfit twice too. And what’s not to like about that?

@lucyzta:  Why not wear it?  If you’re counting the pub as an official marriage celebration, do it up!

I’d wear it twice or if budget allows i would get a second white shorter dress with a statement necklace maybe to suit the ambiance of the pub but i’ll def. wear white 🙂 do you have a picture of the dress?

Yes to wearing the white dress! I agree with a PP who suggested adding a statement necklace or some other accessory to make it more pub-appropriate, I think that’s a brilliant idea. 

ETA: Since your dress is strapless, you could also throw on a cardigan, it will keep you warm and make the whole outfit look a little more casual.

@lucyzta:  I would SO wear my dress twice! Maybe like another bee suggested add a statement necklace or switch up the accessories in some way but I definitely would rock it to celebrate with friends.

I’d wear it twice. I bet you more brides would love to don their bridal finery again, but white ball gowns or satin mermaid gowns are just not appropriate everyday wear.
