    I agree with everyone else. I'd definitely wear the dress all night. My dress was heavy but it was beautiful and there was no way I was taking it off that night.

      I think you should definitely wear your dress to the reception (you look beautiful, by the way -- LOVE the brooch detail and the way it cinches everything together)!!!

      I don't think it's necessary to have a separate dress for your reception....I only have a reception dress because I jumped the gun and got a dress a month after I'd gotten engaged, and then I had a change of heart and got a more formal dress, so the simpler of the two I'll be wearing at my AHR so it doesn't go to waste (since we weren't able to return it)!

          Thanks for your input ladies. I feel much better now not having to think about getting another dress. It took long enough to narrow it down to that dress, let alone pick another one. Thank you for all your kind words too! I dont know what I would do without this forum!! lol

                Such a pretty dress and you'll look gorgeous, so why change out of it?! :)
                I actually got my dream dress today, after buying one that I thought was more suitable for a DW...I'm going to use that one for my TTD. Gotta wear the dream dress all night!!

                  I think this is enough .....
                  I do agree with you. Those are the most effective way

                    For me, I am only wearing it once. I am wearing it all night and then jumping in the ocean in it.

                      You look great. If it's comfortable then wear it to the dinner, you are only gonna wear it once so go for it. I think it's just perfect. If you think you might pass out from being hot or something get a lighter cocktail dress for the reception.
