    Glad you brought up this question.......
    I plan to wear my dress the entire night, but am unsure if I should have a different dress for our AHR. Any thoughts?

      I would wear it at the AHR - I think any woman would love to have another chance to wear their dress again! Most of the ladies that have posted on "post your dress" have stated they will be wearing thiers at their AHR. Im not having an AHR due to the fact everyone is coming from everywhere -and if I did have one - maybe I will change my mind - I dont plan on wearing mine as Im sure ours will be just a huge party. Way more casual I think.

      You should wear it! I would!

        First off your dress is beautiful. If it was me I would wear the dress to dinner. But that's me and you need to do what you want. But in my opinion you spend that kind of money and you only get one wedding so take advantage of it.

            I'm going to wear mine the whole time....you spend the money on "the dress" might as well get a whole day of it!

              That's what air conditionning is for! My opinion WEAR YOUR DRESS! I agree we only get the one day to do it so might as well embrace it! I can't wait to wear my dress! :)

                  i agree with everyone else...wear it all night and at the ahr! when else will you wear and it's probably one of the most expensive dresses you'll ever buy...enjoy it!!!

                    As long as your dress is comfortable, I say wear it for the whole reception. I imagine I would want to wear mine as much as possible since you only get to wear it once (unless you wear it for an AHR, which seems a little awkward to me).

                    Edited to add: I am not judging anyone for wearing their dress to their AHR, but if I had an AHR, it would be fairly casual and I would feel weird. I guess I could show up in the dress and then change fairly quickly.
