Reception question: Wear the Dress?

Recommended Posts

totally wearing mine again. but not for the whole time, just for an hour or 2. starting in my evening reception dress, then changing into my wedding dress, then back to the reception dress.

 

i think my friends and family would be disappointed if they didn't see me in it. pictures in the slideshow won't do the dress justice. and who am i kidding, i want to wear it as much as possible

LOVE LOVE LOVE this thread. FI and I are hosting a really casual AHR BBQ and it seemed a little inappropriate to wear my dress again-- however, I love the idea of changing for the first dance! Thanks ladies!smile03.gif

I'm wearing mine and my FI is wearing his wedding attire too. We're eloping so no one will have seen my dress at all and I think would be very disappointed if I didn't wear it. Tons of people have asked me that and were all giddy when I told them that I was wearing my dress. :-)

I'm going to wear my dress again for our reception back home. I figure- why not wear it twice? Not many brides get an opportunity to feel like a princess for two days. :)

I think it is totally up to the individual bride.

 

I'm not wearing my dress again for a number of reasons (many of which are why I'm having a DW rather than one locally). One of which is I'm the only person nearly everyone knows that has done a DW and, while I have tried to explain to them my AHR is not really a reception but a party without all the wedding formalities, I don't think they are getting it. So, I don't want to re-wear my dress.

 

But, I did buy a nice champagne colored cocktail dress. And, I'm pairing it with some bright (island-like) accessories. I think some of my family are a little disappointed, but I really don't want to wear my dress again - so, I'm not going to.

I wore mine again.... without dry cleaning it first!! Even after jumping in the pool with it the day after our wedding, still haven't dry cleaned it and it's still in the box from my AHR. Hmmm, I wonder if its ok...
