while we're on the subject....
Dreamboat and I are getting married in late April. I bought a clearance dress from J.Crew early on in my engagement (I know). An amazingly talented amazing designer friend is completely reworking it (after we both decided, instantly, that the original dress kind of sucked--no shocker there). It's nearly done, and is flowy and a lil' goddessy and lovely, but maybe not terribly flattering...but very wedding-y and beautiful. Long, high necked, almost-racerbacked, silk chiffon, etc. the more i've tried it on, the more i've warmed up to it.
Meanwhile, I found an amazing lace dress accidentally while looking for a dress for my bridesmaid/maid of honor/best lady. Kind of haunted by it, I ordered it, "just to know." I just tried it on, and love it. It's a lil' sexy, strangely sort of demure at the same time, short-ish, and interesting....so, what to do?
I mean, I have a custom, lovely gown designed for me by a friend (though not a friend who will be at the small wedding), and this sexy, interesting gown I bought off the rack. I didn't mean to have to have 2 dresses!
The solution that comes to mind is to wear the lovely, wedding-y gown to the ceremony in our backyard, and the sexy, edgier dress to the reception at a gallery downtown, but that's fussy, right? And silly to have two dresses? What to do?

WEAR THE SEXY ONE
why is this even a question.
