My fiancé and I are having a small ceremony and then we are having a big backyard party the weekend after to celebrate. What should I wear to this party? My future mother in law said that I should wear my wedding dress, but is that right? I was thinking of wearing another nice white dress.

I’m getting married in my fiancé’s country (where we both live) and then having a celebration in my home country 6 months later. My current plan (which might change!) is to get a separate skirt and top rather than a dress. Then I’ll wear the same top and a shorter (more dance-friendly!) skirt for the celebration.
I think it’s up to you – if you want another excuse to wear your wedding dress, go for it. If you’d rather wear something simpler, no problem either.

It really depends on what the two different settings are like. If you are wearing a ball gown for your ceremony, but having a backyard BBQ, well that doesn’t really work well.
If you’re wearing a simple sheath dress and having a tented party, that totally works.
If you don’t want to wear your dress again, buy a second one that fits the occassion! It’s totally up to you. Some brides wear two dresses for ceremony and reception in the same day, so I wouldn’t worry about it if you want a second dress.
