    Because we will be getting married with NO guests, we will both be in our wedding attire for the AHR. People will want to see us in them. I also look forward to wearing it again abotu 6 weeks after the wedding!

      I am totally wearing my dress again! I absolutely love it and I can't imagine NOT wearing it to the wedding reception. There might be 2 months in between my wedding and reception, but I don't care! The majority of the people won't be in Jamaica and we are treating our AHR as a regular reception. Photog, music, restaurant, the whole deal, so it would be kinda silly to not wear the dress.

      Obviously I don't think it's tacky, since I am doing it, and you have to do what you are comfortable with, but keep in mind that your FI is a man and sometimes they just don't know!

        I'm definitely wearing my dress at my AHR. We're having a full blown reception at a hotel close to my former hometown.

          I wore my dress at our AHR and so did the bridal party. I told them they didn't have to but they wanted my family to know who was a part of our wedding. We had our slideshow on repeat during the reception and the guests loved it. We had 170 family and friends, it was from 3-8pm on a Sunday at a golf club. All the aunts were so happy I wore my dress again, they were all teary eyed.

            LOL -- you have time to get it cleaned and from the sounds of it, they clean up really well.

            And you will still fit in it!!!!! :-)

                  I am not wearing the same dress. I am doing the two different ones for a couple reasons 1. I heard that many peoples dress gets dirtythrough out the night and I wont have time to get it dry cleaned since our AHR is right when we return. 2. Its going to be less formal so I got a tea length wedding dress and much less hot. 3. Gave me an excuse to get another dress :o)

                    Hey, I think if you are comfortable in your dress and don't mind wearing it again, then why not, its your party, you can do anything you want!!!!!!

                    Hey at least you can say, you were able to wear your wedding dress twice, most brides spend all that money to wear it for a couple hours, like I am doing
