    You don’t have my option! πŸ™‚

    Which is No, because I could not fine one I liked in a price point I wanted. πŸ™‚

    At the end though I’m happy I changed back into my wedding dress! My dress was simple so fine to dance in! πŸ™‚

    I love my dress and am having a very short ceremony…so I would be really sad to take it off after just a few minutes! I’m really looking forward to wearing it all night πŸ˜€

    I chose “Yes, because I wanted a different look for the reception”. Although, I’m not really changing for the reception, I’m changing for the reception/after party (after all the eating is done). We’re going to a pub, probably with strangers, and I don’t want to have my dress ruined.

    My option’s not on there either πŸ™‚

    I plan to change into a cheongsam-style dress for the later half of the reception, in a nod to my Chinese heritage. And because I am irrationally worried about dropping food on myself at the reception, it does double duty by giving me a backup πŸ˜€

    I’m going to stay in my wedding dress for the reception but I will be changing into a “going away” outfit, either a dress or a skirt.

    My option’s not there either – I won’t be changing because my wedding dress is already a short dress.  If I had a long dress, I would probably change eventually, though.

    My ceremony will be short & sweet, my dress will be comfy and chiffon, so I’ll be wearing my wedding dress the whole time πŸ™‚

    bells I was thinking something similar, like wearing a sash with a flower and a veil during the ceremony and then a rhinestone sash durnig the reception. I don’t think I’d want to change out of my dress but it is not too big so I can dance in it!

    I can’t imagine taking all this time to lust after and choose the perfect wedding dress and then taking it off after the ceremony! I may even have issues when Fiance tries to eventually take it off me when the night is over. “JUST FIVE MORE MINUTES!!”

    I didn’t want to change! I loved my dress and the bustle, and it was actually really fun to dance in.  How often do you get to get down in a ball gown, ya know?

    I changed my headpiece (veil to headband) and had a really intricate bustle, so the look was different, but the same dress of course.

    Heck no, I am wearing my wedding dress as long as possible. I paid a pretty penny for it and plan getting a good wear out of it.

    I’m going to stay in my wedding dress for most of the day, but since my reception is outside and there are lawn games I’m going to change into my “going away” outfit (little white dress and yellow cardigan) a little early so I can run around and play without my big ball gown weighing me down.

    I also plan on wearing a “going away” dress. But I doubt I will wear it for much of the reception. I originally bought it to wear to our after party, but I don’t really know if there will be one anymore. So now I kind of regret buying it. LOL.
