Reception Attire..For the Bride!

I always thought a two dress bride was crazy...I changed my mind instantly....I found a dress from BCBG! After putting on my traditional wedding dress I realized I think I would like a shorter white dress that is easy to dance in yet lets everyone know that I am the bride!! Plus, it gives me more opportunity for photos!!! I was coming up empty handed and kinda just put it on the back burner. About 2 weeks later I went window shopping and came across BCBG Maxazria and couldn't resist checking out their new season of dresses. It was then I had a quick flash back to a General Hospital episode.

Are you a General Hospital fan? I am! Since Middle School days!! Anyways, I saw a wedding dress in one episode. Character Kate was trying on a dress and her ladies were adjusting it and adding jewerly to her..etc...and I thought to myself.."Oh my! That dress is sooo pretty!" I thought it was so modern yet had a soft touch. Well my fellow Kate was wearing a BCBG dress. The manager came over and I told her about my General Hospital dress..... "Oh, this is the dress that Kate wore!" I'm like are you serious?!!? So, I quickly made a dash for the dressing room! It fit me like a glove and it made me feel so beautiful. It actually makes me look very tall! I get to wear black heels with it too!!! I immediately called my Mother and told her all about it! I went online and pulled up the dress ...and sent her the link. I was very dissapointed with what I saw. These pictures do not show how truely beautiful it is.


When I flew home back in September I took the dress with me. When I put it on to show my parents my Mom even said how it looks 10 times better in person then online. This also goes to show...TRY ON EVERYTHING at those bridal stores...everything looks different on!

Did you have 2 dresses? How did it work out? I must say, I am in love with both!

Hi Nicole,
I saw that you asked a couple weeks ago to see a picture of the place card board with the little envelopes that we used for our reception. I just saw that now though (a little late!), but if you are still interested, I can send you pictures or explain to you how I made it, etc. I tried to send you a private message on Wedding Bee, but when I clicked on your name, it took me to this website. Good job with your website by the way! :)

Love the dress! So, if the dress looks better in person that I am guessing it is awesome! That will definitely be better for dancing.
