    I'm not having an AHR, but if I were I would wear the hell outta my dress! I wish I could wear it again....can't seem to come up with any good reason until our anniversary comes around.

      I'm wearing my dress again at the at home reception. I've paid too much and I'm determined to get some wear out of that dress.

        I'm not wearing mine only because I got a more casual dress for the AHR. I actually got a Watters dress that comes in a shorter length but is still considered a wedding dress.

        So I've got 2 wedding dresses, such a prima donna.

          Since most of you are wearing yours again and give perfectly good reasons for doing so, I'm going to wear mine too! I wanted to wear it again since there will be so many people at the AHR that won't make it to Mexico, so now I'm glad to know that it's totally acceptable to do so!

            Yeah! Do it!

            I'm totally late on this. But I voted "yes" because my friend Monica is wearing her's to her AHR. Although she does have a more casual dress to change into for later in the evening. The AHR is going to be at my FIL's winery out in the country. . .pretty casual for the most part, so she's pretty much wearing it to let the guests see it and to do a traditional cake cutting/photo op that her mother insisted on! :-) But I think she is pretty excited about having an excuse to wear it again!

              Okay, I am still not sure if we are doing an AHR or not, but if we do, I am without a doubt wearing my dress again. It was the most expensive piece of clothing I ever bought, and I love it, so of course I will wear it. lol Its my party I can wear what I want to.

                  I bought a dress from White House Black Market for my AHR. As much as I would love to wear my wedding dress, I am having two AHR's, both before the wedding ceremony in Mexico, and I kind of wanted to save that dress for that occassion. is it weird that I want Rob to see me in it for the first time in Mexico at what we would consider our wedding date? If the receptions were after the fact, I think I would wear it, although they are both going to be casual events, so I would stick out like a sore thumb.

                  By the way, this makes me think of something. I don't know how many of you are getting legally married in the states before you have your ceremony in Mexico, but this is the route that we're taking. For those of you that are doing this, which date are you going to celebrate as your anniversary? The date that you got your marriage license, or the date the you had your ceremony? Just curious.
