Changing for Reception

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is already a thread, but I really need to know if any of you ladies had two dresses on your wedding day. I am really debating on whether or not I should change after the ceremony. The time of year that I cam getting married is really hot and humid and I can't imagine being in my dress all day.

Did any of you ladies have this problem?

I totally see the practicality of it (June in Mexico will be HOT!) - but knowing myself, I think I am going to want to stay in my wedding dress all night! I probably won't change, primarily for that reason.

me either! I will be in my dress all night long! I know natasha changed into a dress for a tango dance she did with her husband but it looked like she put her wedding dress back on! (I think)

I'm staying in mine no matter what! But I'm thinking of having the gm change from suits to guayaberas (shirts) and flip flops for the reception.

I agree I wouldn't change for the world, this is the only time you get to wear it (well I might possibly wear it around the house once in a while after the wedding-but that's just me-I know I will wear my veil around) so why not just get hot and sweaty but look beautiful doing so!!!

I got married in Texas in the summer...pretty hot and humid also - maybe not quite as much as Mexico, but still enough that it mattered. We had our reception at an old victorian home using the house, patio and garden areas for the reception - so I was only indoors maybe half of the time.

 

That being said, I totally kept my dress on the entire time! I think once you're wearing it you just feel so excited and "bride-y" that you don't ever want to take it off! I even kept it on back at our hotel, super late at night while we were eating some fast food we'd bought! (we were starving!! Too much talking at the reception to eat) There's nothing like drinking champagne and eating some Taco Bell in your wedding dress! wink.gif It's acutally one of my favorite memories.

I struggled with this as well. I had to change because my DH and I are tango dancers and you can't do an argentine tango in a wedding dress!

 

So, I changed into this dress for our dance and then I changed back so that I could do my daddy daughter dance in my wedding dress. I didn't want my pictures with my dad to be in this:

That being said, if you're getting married in Costa Rica, it is HUMID in Manuel Antonio. I was SO hot dancing at night in my wedding dress and it cooled off significantly in Cabo. If you will have more fun changing later in the evening so you can dance (maybe after you cut the cake), I say go for it. It was a relief putting this dress on - even if it was only for a bit.

Natasha - Do you have the world's tiniest waist?!?! I thought it looked small in your wedding dress - but in the tango dress!!!! My lord - do you ever eat?? I'm so jealous. You look amazing.

 

And I'll be wearing the dress all day, all night, maybe the next day too!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
