Wedding dress

Due to covid I am postponing my reception for next year but will have a small church ceremony on my wedding dates this October.
I plan on getting a simple dress for the ceremony and wearing my wedding at the reception. Do you think that would be weird?
I just would hate to wear my wedding dress that I spent so much on for an hour.

    I don’t think that’s weird ! A lot of people have been getting a simpler dress for their elopement and saving their gowns for their postponed celebrations

    I don’t think that’s weird at all. I see most people that are postponing are getting another dress to wear.

    A lot of people are getting a different dress for their minimony. I know how you feel.
    For us, we already eloped and had to move our wedding to two different dates. Boo 🙁.
    With our last date, our photographer is already booked (without having to pay extra fees). So I definitely going to wear my dress for more than an hour and get some pictures this time around.

    That's not weird at all Ally! If you want to get a more casual dress for your minimony and save your wedding dress for the big party - then go for it!
