So, I am planning on wearing a mermaid/trumpet gown for my ceremony and then changing into another (less expensive),shorter, less formal dress for our reception so I can really party and dance without being so restricted. Our reception is on the beach. I love both dresses and will have photos in both. I'm feeling like it probably is a bit excessive but the second dress isn't that much and I will be able to wear it again.

 

My fiancé is fine with it because he knows how I love to dance. And he wants me to enjoy the reception as much as possible. Hopefully people won't think I'm being too much of a diva. :rolleyes:

 

If we were marrying at home, I still would do a change...

Is anyone else doing this?

I have two dresses one for the ceremony and a part of the reception and then i'm changing to the fun party dress for the end of reception and dancing.  I say go for it, its your day and if you are more comfortable in the second dress and like to dance why not. Here are my two dresses.

Okay. We were on the same wavelength...

Unfortunately I can't see your pics but I'm working on getting to 150 posts. :) You're from the tri-state area so I'm sure they're nice!

@csho Exactly! I knew I couldn't possibly be the only one doing this. I guess it's common.

 

Wow! 10 days away... are you excited, nervous, anxious, ready, ALL THE ABOVE???!! Iberostar is beautiful.

There is a LONG thread here on BDW where brides have shown their dresses and recommended few great sites... It's an amazing thread with tons of tips for ordering the perfect dress from overseas! I think it's called "knock off dresses"... Something like that... I found them there! (Jasmines). They look the best but there are a few depending on style that seem to get rave reviews from brides here.

I am getting anxious and stressed to be honest! My fiancé ended up having to have surgery (it was minor) but still have an open wound and going to another country is never good! So we weren't really sure how things were going to play out and we're still kind of just hoping that hes going to heal well! So there's that and then just making sure everything is done and ready and that we don't forget anything! I can't wait til we just get there and can relax and not worry about anything!


@NJBride2014 Love BOTH  your dresses! They are so beautiful!

Awwww! I hope everything works out as planned.

 

I feel that way now and I have two months left. Can't wait until it's all over and I can relax on the beach with no cares! B)


@kmk2016 Thanks. I saw that thread and intend to look into those places.
