We just decided to have an AHR. When I was speaking to my Grandma and Aunts I was really surprised to hear them say that I should most definitely wear my wedding dress again! Surprised in a GREAT way, that is! I mean, how many girls get the chance to get all dolled up in the wedding attire TWICE?! We are SOOOO lucky!!!
Plus like a lot of y'all, I have family that won't be able to make it to the Mexico wedding - namely my little cousins who were so
looking forward to being flower girls. So I decided to have a "why the hell not?!" attitude about the whole AHR. We are going to do it "wedding themed" and let all the little girls dress up in little white FG dresses and throw petals on us (we're getting legally married at our AHR since our site in MX only hosts spiritual ceremonies). I'm also going to ask the BMs to wear their dresses from the wedding, and FI will wear his suit.
I wasn't going to wear it but we were at an engagment party for some friends getting married on New Years Eve and was talking to some friends who most likely won't be coming to the DR and she was like "what, you aren't going to wear it, none of us will get to see it" so it got me thinking that perhaps I should wear it at least for a bit...plus we are considering a "rock the reception" type of first dance so I'd have to be in the dress to make it work!!!
"Rock the Reception"! I LOVE IT! We wanted to do that really badly but don't have the space down in MX - how cool to do it back home at the AHR!!
