    @MonPetite:  I think you need to get the tea length dress.  You clearly already have your heart set on it.  I say go get one!

    @MonPetite:  I think that if you don’t have a problem scrapping the first dress and you can afford a second dress, the solution is simple.  Go back out there and shop for a reception dress that is everything you wanted the first time around.  If you find it and love it so much that you want to wear it for the reception, try to sell the first dress. 

    Personally, my vision is to have a super flowy, dreamy romantic ceremony dress, probably use it for the first dance and then switch out to a short, party dress.  A lot of bees hate the 2-dress idea, but changing dresses is actually part of my culture and is traditional, and I don’t see it being a problem for those girls who don’t have it as part of their culture.  Sometimes the dress is beautiful, but not very comfortable and you want to change or sometimes you just want to be able to have 2 dresses because it’s your day and you should have as many dresses as you want or sometimes you’re torn between 2 different looks so why not have them both (like you!)?

    Bottom line – go to that store you wanted to go to, look at tea length dresses.  If you find one that you like and want to buy, THEN make the decision of using it the entire time or just for the reception.  If you don’t, then problem solved – you already have a dress anyway!

    PS:  Post a pic of your dress! 🙂

    The second dress suite you very well!!! You also look more happy and less stiff in the second one. But I have to say that I’m not really objective since I more tea lenght person kind. Most of my friend doesn’t understand why I don’t want the big dress for my wedding day.

    @MonPetite:  That is really pretty and looks great on you!  But, it is very traditional and the tea length is not.  I think you should go out and shop for some more tea length dresses.  See if you can find yourself one.  You have nothing to lose – if you don’t find one you like, you already have a dress that looks great that you like!  If you do, then you have 2 and you can make a decision – wear both or just wear one.

    Good luck!

    Go get your tea length dress! It really does fit your vision so well. Maybe you can sell the current one.

    Honestly, without even knowing you I prefer the tea length

    I got sucked into purchasing a dress I didn’t really like too, because it was on sale and everyone that was there told me how pretty I looked in it.

    I ended up going to a different store and getting the dress of my dreams.

    I’d have to say dress 2, you look happy and relaxed in it.

    I always thought I would have a tea length dress. Then I found MY dress, and would up a 2 dress bride!

    The tea length dresses, especially the one that you posted of yourself – are just wonderful on you.  I don’t know you, but it really pops out as suiting your personality much more than the first dress that is longer.  Put it this way, in the longer dress = the dress is wearing you.  In the shorter one, you are wearing the dress and you are shining.

    I actually love the tea length dress. What about getting it as a second dress so you don’t feel so bad?
