I''ve been thinking about getting a reception dress pretty much since I started looking at dresses. Since I love my dress so much I''ve been rethinking the 2nd dress - until I checked out a few short dresses. I had my eye on a few and went to a Priscilla of Boston trunk show this weekend.

Welllllll.....I walked out the proud owner of this Melissa Sweet dress!! I had been swooning over it on the website and was convinced it wouldn''t look good on, but once I had it on I didn''t want to take it off!!! I never make decisions like this but I absolutely fell in love.

So, this is my wedding dancing dress. I''ll be changing into it after the 1st dance, dinner, and dance with my dad - so I can boogie down
We''re also having an afterparty so I figure I can wear it there too!

I love it -- mullet dress! Ha ha!

It''s beautiful, and I''m sure you will look beautiful and have a blast in it.

That dress is gorgeous. I''d seen it on the website, but I never realized the back was that beautiful! I
it. Can you link to your original dress? I don''t remember it.

Out of curiosity, with a back like that, what do you do about wearing a bra? That was one of my challenges with dress shopping ... if I couldn''t wear a semi-ordinary bra, it just didn''t work!

violet3 - Thanks!

Kelli - Thanks! I was going to change into a "bride" jumpsuit since the afterparty is at our hotel, but this will be a lot more fun!

- Thank you - I''ll get some more up tomorrow

tlh, blackbetty, TheBigT, brandy_z28, sunnyd, bebe - Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

elrohwen - I just ordered my gown recently https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/finally-took-the-plunge-my-dress.107961/
2 dresses in 2 weeks! LOL! I''ll probably wear a Nu-Bra (one of those sticky silicon cup bras with no back) and they''ll be sewing cups into the dress. I don''t have a large chest so that should be enough support.

mayachel - I know, it is a strange nickname for such a fab dress. The saleslady said "party in the back" and I just looked at her and said "Like a mullet?!?!" and we died laughing.

FrekeChild - Hahaha thanks! I have a few pics of the dress on me on my camera at home, I''ll post em soon!

OMG I LOVE that dress!!!! I saw that in Modern Brides, and even showed my SO the dress. I just don''t have the boobs for it (4 kids, 36D but not on the ribs.
)

You MUST post pictures of you in the dress when you can. The back of that is just so sassy!
