Reception question: Wear the Dress?

Recommended Posts

I wish I could've worn mine for our AHR, but we ended up having a picnic at a park and we held our AHR before the wedding as kind of a Send-off Party, so I didn't want FH to see the dress until the day of the wedding.

I am not wearing mine. I am getting a white sundress. My AHR is going to be very very casual - hopefully with some volleyball, bochee ball, and other yard games :)


My dress was under $200 and I actually might wear it again to a ball or something (when would I ever go to a ball though - haha) so I dont feel like I have to wear it for my stateside reception.


Is anyone going to do the other stuff - like a dance and a cake?

My AHR was 6mths after the wedding. I wore the dress (and people loved seeing it), and after appetizers my MC announced that bride/groom are going to change into something a little more comfortable. My second dress was still white, but not nearly as fancy.


For me, it was the perfect solution since some people thought it was odd that I'd be wearing it, and some thought I should. This way, I pleased everyone --including myself.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
