We "have" to have two AHRs. My fiance is from Canada and I'm from the US (we live in the US). His family is throwing us a PRE-wedding reception in November, we get married in February and then will have a post-wedding reception here in the US sometime in the spring/early summer. I bought a cheap dress on ebay that can easily serve as my TTD AND reception dress. It's currently a regular wedding dress but I want to have it shortened to knee length for the reception in November. It's simple and lightweight so it should work. I don't really want to run around wearing a full on wedding dress before we get married. I'm not superstitious, I just want it to be a new experience the day of the wedding. Then I'll probably wear my real wedding dress to the post-wedding reception. I'm SO excited that I get to wear it more than once! It's definitely something everybody should do - no matter how informal the AHR might be!
