We had our wedding in August 2020 an Elopement with 14 people on the beach. It was beautiful, we will be sharing our wedding video at the reception. But everyone will see my dress. My husband wants me to re wear it. ..what should I do?

    I think it would be such a good idea to rewear it! Wedding dresses are usually a one time dress and so the more chances to wear it, the better

    I am planning to wear mine for my 2021 wedding even though I'll wear it for my minimony this year. You put so much money into a dress to wear it once, might as well maximize your value and wear it again if you can!

    Celebrate the reception with a new dress!!! Or make additions/adjustments to your original dress, enough for it to have a different flair to it! The way I see it... you鈥檒l already be a Newlywed for some months and there鈥檚 a big time gap between the 2 events. So have fun and wear something fresh and new for the celebration!!!馃ぉ (and not what guests saw you in a few months prior).

    Why *wouldn't* you??

    ...I rewore my dress for my quarantine birthday, because it made the day special when otherwise it would have been another day in lockdown.

    It's totally up to you! I personally would re-wear my dress, because I spent money on it and would love to get to wear it more than once. However, I also understand wanting to wear something new. If it's in the budget and you want a new dress, pick out something new! Otherwise, I recommend wearing the same dress twice.

    Definitely rewear it! To be honest, I don鈥檛 think anyone will remember what your dress looks like in a year. Besides, wedding dresses are expensive & it鈥檚 awesome if you get more use out of it instead of only wearing it once.

    I would totally re-wear it! It鈥檚 one easy way to tie both events together even though they鈥檙e about a year apart 馃槉

    Wear it!!! We are contemplating having a big reception back home after our destination wedding, and if we do I am definitely wearing my dress again!! With the amount of money we spend on these dresses, I say wear them as often as possible!! I鈥檝e thought about maybe getting my dress shortened into a party dress for the 2nd reception- maybe you could modify yours if you want a new feel to it.

    I think if you have the opportunity to wear it a second time go for it. Unless you really don't want to. Its whatever will make you happy.

    I agree with this. As expensive as they are, wear it as long as you can.
