I will be getting married in Japan, but I do plan on having a second reception back home in the UK, and I will most likely wear my wedding dress to that since a) not everyone will have seen it b) it’s quite a partyish dress anyway (tulle ballgown not lacey or churchlike) and c) I bought it so getting my money’s worth!

I will not however be recreating the wedding though, and I don’t intend to spend a lot of money.. ideally I’d like it in a family member’s house if possible. I’ll want it very informal but as we won’t have a cake in Japan we’ll have a wedding cake and the cutting photos in the UK.

Recreating the wedding seems weird but wearing the dress seems like a great idea!!

My cousin actually did a second reception – large wedding in NY, where he grew up and where they currently live and a second reception in the midwest, where she grew up.  The second reception had around 150 people, she wore a different dress for most of it, but changed into her wedding dress to do the first dance again.  They didn’t do the cake cutting again, but still had a lot of elements from the first reception – dancing, plated dinner, etc.
