Agreed! It's a vacation! OP - What do you care if your wife wants to wear four different dresses in a single day?

Most importantly, did you both have a great time? We overpacked for ours too BTW.

You can often find some really good deals at places like Macy's or Carson's. You just have to watch.
DH found a pair of dress shoes at goodwill. They were still being sold at Dillard's/Macy's for$150+ but we paid $5and they looked like brand new. We had been shopping for pirate gear and never expected to find such a deal!

As far as dresses, I love Macy's sales combined with their coupon and Dillard's when they take an extra 30%-50% off clearance. I found a beautiful red gown at Dillard's that was normally $350 for $55!

As far as OPs wife, I say let her bring 3 if she wants. I tend to overpack but 3 for 7 night is definitely not overpacking IMHO :-)

Constantly changing or constantly waiting on a person to change isn't much of a vacation. Just my opinion.

My dad tried to tell me I was packing too much. I think at one point I told him "Then I will be the one to suffer. I'm paying to check in wine." Don't mess with a girl and her clothes... or wine.

Ohhh who are you Disney Bounding as? I love the stuff she has for Rapunzel, but I'm so much more a Belle (as in book nerdy, give me a library type.).

I wear scrubs to work and live in pjs, so I get the whole "don't dress up" thing. Here's what I brought:
http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses...ress-in-cherry
Love this dress! Wore it to Palo's brunch, wore it to semi-formal night (because for me to wear a dress is considered dressed up no matter the dress.), wore it to my college graduation (and it was funny because all my teachers were like "Kim's dressed up! She's in a dress! She's wearing makeup! She's wearing earrings! This must be important!"). Love it. Comfy. Just kinda' bad if you are busty...

I don't have a picture of the formal night from the store. Only me wearing it:
http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n...ps6428e9ee.jpg
(I was looking at a lot more expensive things and my friend and I were at Target. She saw this and was like "This is fancy, it's formal for you. And it's your color." Oh and it was $17.00! Only problem? It was super short and would ride up in the back...).

I brought 4 dresses? 2 of them were a Susan Graver/QVC liquid knit in color. I brought a few skirts. My one complaint/note of caution: I don't wear heels, I live in Birks, sneakers, flip flops, or bare foot. I brought 2 pairs of heels, no flats except my flip flops... Guess what I was wearing to dinner a lot? Orthoheel flip flops. Don't pack heels if you don't wear them!

How often do you really get an excuse to dress up! I dress up each night, formal or otherwise just for an excuse to wear my evening clothes!

If my husband tried to tell me how many dresses I should take on a cruise and used some internet forum or poll to try to prove he was right, I would laugh in his face. You're lucky she is only bringing 3. I brought 2 formal, 4 semi-formal, and 2 sundresses.

Here is what I wore to Remy:

Here is my Palo Dress (it is a lot fuller than this picture.):

This is similar to my formal night dress:

Think my gf is going to order one of those.
