    I'm looking for a white with lots of sparkle and sequins to change half way through the wedding - anyone else doing this?

      No, I love my dress and it is light. I figure I only get one time to wear it and I am going to get the most out it.

        I thought about it, but with all the stuff I'm lugging with me, another dress would just be more stuff to take special care of.

            I am! My party dress is sooo much less formal though. Our wedding will be on the beach in the a.m. and our "reception" won't be until dinner at our villa that night. I bought a knee length CK white dress... it screams "island chic". And the best part? It was originally $130, and I got it on sale for $30.

            I will be making use of my wedding dress again at my AHR a few weeks after my ceremony though.

              I am currently shopping for one. In Mexico, I figure I'll get back in my swimsuit after getting married!! LOL

              For my at home reception, I'm wearing my dress again, but once all the formal stuff is over, I want to have a cute short white dress to change into. Love having plenty of time to shop though. :o)

                  I wanted sooo bad to be a 2 dress bride. I am actually wearing one the day of the wedding and the other one for my TTD session on Sunday.

                    I brought a second dress that was short that I planned to change into if mine became too uncomfortable dancing, but I never used it. Honestly, once I had my dress on I loved it so much that I wanted to wear it for as long as I could knowing I would never wear it again.

                      I will need a party dress for the reception. I have a formal dress for the ceremony and dinner, but our wedding will be in Cuba and we will be salsa dancing the night away. There is no slow dancing at Cuban weddings
                      I was thinking of ordering a bridesmaid dress in ivory that I can add a little beading to dress it up, for the remainder of the night, I am hoping that will be the most cost effective option to having a second dress. I would love to hear any other suggestions though.
