Dress change during reception?

Ok so in my family's culture brides typically change into several gowns during the reception. Reasons I'm not doing it:

1. I LOVE my wedding gown. When am I ever going to get the chance to really wear it again? The other gowns would be ones I could wear to other events. You only really get one chance to wear a wedding gown. 
2. More gowns = more $$ which totally is not in my budget

My parents are giving me a hard time about it. They really want me to change at least once. Are any of you changing during your reception? Trying to convince my parents that I'm not crazy to want to keep my wedding gown on all night. Thoughts, ladies? TIA

    I do not think you are crazy at all. I am wearing my wedding dress the entire night. I fell in love with it, and as you said, you only get to wear it once! :)

    I too am wearing my dress the whole night. This is the most exspensive piece of clothing I'll ever buy, so I wanna wear it as long as I can. Just tell them a wedding dress/gown really means a lot to a girl and you can't dare part with yours.

    I wouldn't change either. Honestly, I'd just tell them that you're so in love with your dress, only get to wear it this one day and are going to wear it all night.

    I wanted to change dresses but like you said I will only be able to wear the dress once and since we are spending so much money on it I want to get the most out of it! Maybe you can change to leave the party into a cocktail dress? (even if your going to go to a hotel)
