I was trying on my dress again today because my shoes and shapewear came in recently and I wanted to make sure it all worked well together. My mom suggested I try doing things in my dress, like sitting. Well, it was difficult to sit in. It's a trumpet dress and the top half is rather stiff which just makes it hard to sit. I was aware of this before I got it, but it wasn't really a big deal to me.
Well, my mom said she is thinking I'll need a reception dress to change into. I LOVE my dress! I would hate to have spent hundreds of dollars on this gorgeous dress to only wear it for an hour! But my mom does have a point.
I've looked into some other posts and saw that most think a reception dress is a flaunting of money. Trust me -- we do not have a lot of money. My gown was inexpensive and a second dress wouldn't be like a really nice dress, probably $100 or less. I wouldn't be getting another dress just to show off for some reason, it would just be for comfort.
What I want to know is, will I ever even sit down? That's the only time the dress is uncomfortable. I don't want to buy another dress because I don't want to take mine off and I don't want to spend more money on another dress. So if I won't get the chance to sit anyway, I won't waste my money.
