I'm not. I originally thought I wanted to but then I thought to myself "do you really want to pay all of this money for a dress just to have it on for a couple of hours?" So I decided against it and will be wearing my dress all night.

Lol I always said I would have a reception dress but yeah ... no I won't lol I personally can't justify it for myself.

Personally, the only reason I would change is if there was a legitimate need to do so. The only reason I am changing is because we are going barhopping after our reception, and my dress has a train that I do not want to carry around all night or have people stepping on & tripping me. If my dress didn’t have a train, I definitely wouldn’t be changing. We spend so much money on our wedding dresses, you might as well wear them as long as you can!
I'm planning to wear my dress all night for the same reason Yasmine mentioned. I only get the opportunity to wear it once, and if I'm spending a bunch of money on it, I want to at least wear it as long as I can. I think the decision though is totally up to you, there's no right/wrong answer. Many people have two dresses - could be because they couldn't decide between two dresses, or maybe they love their dress but it's not easy to dance in, so they have a ceremony dress and a second dress for the reception, etc. If you're wanting to change into a reception dress, I say go for it!
Absolutely not!! You get married one day out of your life and that dress is way too expensive to wear for 30 minutes max to a 6+ hour party.
I'll have a second dress for bar hopping after the reception, but I plan to wear my actual wedding dress up until we leave the ceremony/reception venue. I'm wearing my wedding dress a second time at our second celebration in my FH's hometown, and I don't want it to get completely ruined before then!
I have three dresses.....a ceremony dress, a reception dress, and an okay, I'm ready to be comfortable dress. Most of this was due to the fact that I had to postpone for six months and had more time to look at dresses, but whether you wear the same dress or change, it's not hurting anybody. Do you.
I was going to change into a nice pant suit since I'm really not a dress person (the last time I wore a dress was ten years ago) buttttt I spent way more then I had originally planned so I'm going to wear it for as long as I can, make every cent count haha 🤣😂🤣😂
Something to consider when shopping is get a style that is comfortable to be constantly moving in. Or if you aren't a dress person, skip the dress entirely and be true to who you are instead of pleasing others.
I didn’t change. As others stated I wanted to wear it as long as possible since I spent a lot on it. Plus I only get to be a bride once! My sister in law got changed. She put on a t-shirt and leggings (I think it was first dance, dinner, cake, and then she got changed). But that’s the only person I’ve seen get changed.
I've attended many weddings and have never in my life seen anyone change out of their dress into something else at any time. It's a brand new trend from the Wedding Industry Complex to bully you to spend more, while telling you that everyone and their cousin does it when they don't at all.
