    My dress is a strapless tea-length and I am enjoying it the entire day....No reception dress for me :)

          I think I'm going to order this one but in white. I'm actually going to try it on today to make sure the size I need to order. Hopefully I think it is as cute on as it is in the pic.

            I did not intentionally have a reception dress. LOL

            My dress was heavy and our wedding day was the hottest day of the trip1 It also had metal stays for shaping. During dinner I was having trouble breathing, not to mention eating because I couldn't bend at the waist, so I snuck out and slipped into my TTD!

            No one noticed because they are similar in style, so everyone was shocked when I jumped into the pool after dinner. **See me rockin' in the avatar pic**

            My advice would be to look for BM dresses that come in white. You can see mine in my blog and the model dress was white. It would be fun for you to still match your bridal party, but still look like the bride.

            The dresses were from Bridal and wedding dresses, prom gowns and bridesmaid dresses from Mori Lee The Affairs collection

                For my AHR, I'm thinking of either something like

                Suzi Chin Silk Dress with Sash - Bride Bridal Shop Dresses - Women's - Macy's

                or

                ABS by Allen Schwartz Embellished Silk Party Dress - Wedding Dresses - Nordstrom

                Possibly something a little longer just so no one has a canary that its short ><

                  I LUV the Nordstrom dress!!!

                  Girls I am sooo glad I asked bout this you all have helped ...

                  I also agree with maybe finding my BM's dress in white would be a great idea too. I orig had 4 girls now I am down to 1 sooo I could use one of the other dress styles.

                  Lets keep this thread going...

                    Initially I said taht I was going to wear my wedding dress all day, but then my fiance and I decided on doing a special salsa song as our first dance and my dress won't accommodate. I want to be able to move freely w/out worrying about my fiance stepping on my dress. So recently I just bought a fun salsa type dress from Express and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about it. Also, I will be wearing my wedding dress again during my TTD session so I'm sure I will get enough wear out of it.

                      I also liked this one for a longer dress idea

                      Maggy London Chiffon Gown with Charmeuse Waist - Wedding Dresses - Nordstrom

                      This one I love for my MOH, but we're thinking of finding something more of a champagne pink to match the pink in my gown.
