I only have one dress. I love my dress it's pretty light weight and I feel I paid a lot for it and I am only going to wear it once I'd like to get the most of it. I hope I don't regret this though and be really hot for dancing lol after reading these post maybe I should reconsider or at least have a back up.

55 guests booked plus bride and groom :)

I purchased two dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the reception. The reception dress set me back around 40 dollars (not bad at all) It's much easier to move around in.


When I tried walking around in my ceremony dress I felt that it restricted my movement alot-

I had two dresses, but I'm selling the first one and keeping the second one, its a 1950`s tea length dress, so it'll be light enough to dance in :-) :-) I just loved it so much I want to wear all day :-)

I am definitely thinking about getting two dresses, even if I don't change into it for the reception - I will want a short one for the after party in the club as I like to dance and tend to get hot when you add liquor to the mix :)

This is a tough decision. I have less than 4 months to decide. Part of me wants a second dress for the reception but why did I bother getting a gorgeous gown I'm only going to wear for 20 mins! ? Plus I'm not doing a TTD session.. so I'm so uncertain as to what to do!

I thought that I wanted two dresses. I love my dress that I already have, but it is mermaid and might be a little restrictive to dance and what not. So I tried on another dress that I thought I would love, turns out I don't! So I am just gonna stick with my first and love it! Will also be doing a trash the dress in it! Can't wait!

So it seems I'm definitely not alone! Quite a few of you are also considering a change. Come to find out, my mother even brought an outfit to change into for the afterparty!  I find that hilarious being as though she is not young, a dancer, or a partier. I guess she wants to be comfy sitting on the side with my father. LOL :lol:

I'm so in love with my dress, I'm not planning on having a 2nd dress for the reception.  


If I do a TTD, I'll get a 2nd dress.  Again, love the dress WAY too much to trash it, plus it's satin/mermaid-y so wouldn't work that great I think anyway!
