What do I wear to our wedding celebration? Not our ceremony.

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.

malian :  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.
