    LOL Abbie. We had this same problem but it sounds like you guys are nicer. We are just doing a BBQ in the backyard. We talked about making it bigger but I didn't want to fork out more money just to appease them. Steve still wants bigger but I finally convinced him to the dark side. Muhahaha.

        ok, my mom is buying it for me, she is gonna order 2 sizes since it's not avail in stores to try on. i'll take pics and post when it comes in, even if i dont like it! ooh, pus by getting 2, it is over $50, so free shipping! that's a sneaky way to get free shipping, i just realized, buy more than you need then return unwanted to store. like a rebate!

        what i really like about it, is i adored the cut of maura's 1st civil ceremony dress, but didnt want to spend the $, plus i never got the lace dress i originally loved, so i think the cut of this is similar to (not perfect but it reminds me of it) maura's 1st civil dress, plus so much cheaper! woohoo!

          And you can rewear it- at least I would. I like wearing my wedding day accessories now- it takes me back. Awww...

            Yes, I totally did the costume change! It was a halter knee length white sundress and it saved the night!

            I changed after the fire dancers. It was humid, my legs were stuck together with sweat, the dress was heavy, and my boobs kept wanting say hello so I said screw this where's my sundress! (btw to any of you with big bazooms, try sitting and dancing in your dress at the bridal salon & see how your dress reacts to both...anything stays put when you just stand there but at your wedding things will shift so make sure it's secure!)

            After the change I was a brand new woman and was really able to boogie down, I 100% recommend a 2nd dress!

              Our fire dancers were like the very last thing! I thought they weren't going to show for a long time. But I agree- it's so much freer to be in a shorter dress.

                Okay - at first, my reaction was no - but in your case Abbie - I say go for it! BFW - cracked me up!

                Fortunately my dress is short - so I don't have to worry about lugging around a big ol heavy dress! Anyhow - I say wear that new dress and rock it girl!
