    Personally? I think don't waste money on two dresses unless you have a traditional reason to do so (ie. your culture wears different dresses or your family does it that way etc).
    You said that it's other people's opinions that are making you question your choice, but it's YOUR wedding not theirs. If that's the dress that 'sings' to you and it suits your theme then I say go with it.

    My dress was very expensive but very 'plain' according to a lot of people. I saw that as them simply not realising that the simplicity of it was what attracted me to it. It was perfect for me and my expectations so I didn't bend to what they thought and on the day when everyone saw the dress, jewellery, hair and makeup etc all together they all agreed that I'd made the right choice .
    I wanted to look like me on my wedding day, not someone else's idea of what I should look like .

    Not to mention the idea of disappearing to change to a more 'dramatic' and structured dress seems a bit weird. I mean, by the reception most women are dying to get into something more comfortable, not the other way around lol. I know I was!

    Yeah, go for the second dress if you love it and see yourself having a great time wearing it. I went to a wedding where the bride wore a stunning lace overlay dress, and then at the reception, when they were about to do the first dance, she stepped out on the floor in a short strapless little number that was lovely too.

    I have worked at a wedding where the bride wore bustier and skirt (but looked like a dress) and then after dinner came out in jeans instead of the skirt, but with the bustier. If that was her thing then that's cool, but I would like to think that my wedding was worthy of more than jeans.

    Default Two dresses

    I wouldn't be putting a more restrictive dress on for the reception. No way.

    I don't understand the notion of two dresses personally. I LOVED mine so much and it was NOTHING like a traditional wedding dress, there's no way anything else could have met it's match in my mind. It's your day and I am a huge believer in you wearing what you WANT. So in saying that, if two dresses is what YOU want then do it. No one else has to like the idea, it's YOUR day.

    Default Re: Two dresses

    I'd of course be wearing the more restrictive dress during the ceremony and photos and change before entering the reception into the more simple dress.

    Thanks for all the opinions/advice.

    My wedding dress is still my favourite dress of all times, at the time I wish the wedding day was longer for me to keep wearing it a bit more. If you feel like this about either of the dresses, this is the one you should wear. If you love both the same, I think that having the 2 dresses is a good idea.

    However follow your heart not what other people think!

    I'd go 2. This has got me very excited to actually see your dresses though

    It's your wedding and if you want both the dresses go for it, I don't see anything wrong with changing dresses I know many people who have done the same

    I say go for it!!!!

    My bestie wanted a short 50's dress for her wedding but also wanted a traditional dress too. She wore the traditional dress for ceremony and photos and then changed into the short 50's style for the reception after the speeches, first dance and dad/daughter dance so she could relaxed and get her party on.

    I would want to stay in my pretty dress for as long as possible. I wouldn't be removing my fave dress in order to wear a not-so-nice dress.

    I also wouldn't give a sh*t what other people thought about my dress of choice. If I look back at photos of the reception and think I could have looked better, then I'd be kicking myself for the rest of my years.
