My opinion – I am not a fan of bubble skirts at all!! And honestly,  I would go short, so my choice is neither. I just got this super awesome white dress from NY&Co, and it even has pockets, and detachable straps

I’m really not crazy about that first dress on you (I agree that I think the bubble skirt isn’t doing much for you).  I love the 2nd dress too, but think that your wedding gown is so beautiful that the 2nd dress if not short, is unnecessary.

AAAah gag I’m so sorry, but the first one looks like a haloween costume.  #2 by far.

I’m not feeling that bubble skirt, but I love the other two!

I like the 2nd one over the 1st.  The first is fun but a little short especially if your gonna be dancing 🙂  I think it’s whatever makes you feel beautiful though!

They are both soooo different that I can’t decide.

Personally, I’d be worried about #1 being too short. I will be dancing my butt off, though, and wouldn’t want to worry about family seeing my goods! 🙂

The 2nd dress is beautiful but it is very much more of a wedding ceremony dress….almost would seem like you should keep your very fun wedding dress and use THAT as the reception dress (flip flop them) if you do it this way. Typically the 2nd dress is something more “fun” than the ceremony dress, right?

So basically, I think you should keep looking for something — no offense!

At first glance, I’d say the first, because it’s similar to your ceremony dress, with a cute sheer one-shoulder. But that’s just the thing: it’s reeeeeeeeeeally short! But maybe that’s just me, I’ve very conservative. I like the bubble hem, it’s really fun! But as a guest, I would prefer a longer hemline, like knee-length. Try to keep it classy.


I like the second dress, but to me, it’s just a totally different style. But if that’s what you’re going for, sure! 🙂

The words you use to describe the way you want to look, I think describes the longer dress. I like them both but all that comes to mind to describe the short one is cute, and very short. I like the longer reception dress better for a wedding reception.

I’m not crazy about #1.  #2 is very pretty but looks really hot.  I’d try to find something else.  I think you’d be comfy in a long dress as long as it was sleeveless and light material.

Personally, I like # 2 better than #1.

I think #1 is just so short (but still nice!). I honestly think I would be worried for the bride if she came out in something so short – you will have to be very careful of how you dance.  Also….. groom/groomsmen + alcohol + short dress = potential disaster!

Your wedding gown is gorgeous!

I would chose #1 if it wasn’t SO short.

I’m a fan of short dresses for the reception, otherwise I don’t really see the point in changing out of your other gown.  However, I think #1 is just too short and I’m another one who’s not a fan of bubble skirts, I think they look very young (like, 13-16 year olds).
