What dresses are you changing into after the ceremony is over?
I'm trying to find a cute dress, but no luck. Of course, I don't want to spend a lot of money.. Any ideas, ladies?

Same here. My dress is so pretty...I don't want to wear it for only 30 mins. I want to wear it all night long. Not coming off till naked time as well.

Yes, I agree. I didn't change because loved my dress and spent too much on it to wear it for a short amount of time.

I do think dress changes are cool. I know guests ooh and awe when the bride changes to something different. Some brides incorporate a cultural dress into their reception.

That's what I was planning on, but of course all these people are telling me I'll be tired and hot. My dress is gorgeous and I am ready to suffer :)

But if anyone does change, post a link to the sire just for some ideas..

Not only did we not change after the ceremony, we wore our dresses again for our at-home reception three days later. As expensive as they were, we were going to get all the use we could out of them.

I thought about it because my dress is puffy and a bit heavy - and my family thinks I should find soemthing with more glitters or fashion on it since my gown is a romantic simple dress... but idk... after paying over 1500 on my dress, I am not motivated to spend another big amount unles I get a recycle gown that will leave me speechless lol

Kate Middleton's second dress :)
so pretty! I don't think I could pull this off.. she looks gorgeous. I'm surprised that she went with long-sleeve for both occasions, nevertheless, she looks great!

p.s. my cousin wore a sexy green dress mid-way through the reception.. all eyes were on her :)

I love my dress (and paying way too much) to only wear it for the ceremony. I'll only wear it once and it's staying on all night.

We are marrying in the morning and doing a TTD shoot right after the brunch reception, then we have another gathering with all 20 of our guests at a Luau. My dress will be wet and sandy so I am now searching for something to wear to the Luau. Not sure if I want a print or to stick with white/ivory. The dress was $700 but to be honest a big thorn in my side and the only reason I am wearing it is because FI wants me to, but the compromise was that we could do the TTD.

I think the tradition of changing dresses was for the couple who were leaving immediately for their honeymoon - they would leave from the reception so bride and groom would change into their travel clothes.

I am wearing my dress until my honey peels it off me that night (and if I don't lose weight he really will have to peel it off me LOL!)

I will change to another pretty dress. I like to feel comfortable. I spent alot on my ceremony dress but I dont feel bad changing to something I can move around with ( and as pretty in a different style)
