    I intend on having two dresses and I don’t see anything wrong with it. I want a poofy ballgown for my ceremony and a simpler more fitted one for my reception.

    I ended up with two dresses, in all honesty I never thought I would be a two dress bride…and I am not sure I even use the 2nd one. I orginally thought I was going to wear a heavier dress, and purchased lighter dress for the recpetaion that was part of davids bridal 100.00 dress sale.

    After looking at another salon I choose a different ball gown, that is lighter. So now I have both dresses will prob get both sized and alterated but now I am not sure if I will even wear the 2nd dress at all. Might to change into at the end of the night, in order to give my mom the ball gown one to take home and take care of?

    I can understand buying a second dress for ease of mobility during the reception… but spending thousands and thousands on two dresses just because you can’t decide, then yeah, I think that’s a little diva.

    I don’t know why the bees think wearing 2 dresses isn’t a good idea in general, but I love the idea and intend tow ear 2. If I could wear 6, I would. lol

    If you have the money to do, then it’s not diva simply because other women do not have the money. Women having ceremonies when others can’t afford to isn’t diva. 

    Do what makes you happy! If you don’t make a big deal out of it, no one else will either.

    In some cultures it’s common to change multiple times.  I’ve been to weddings where the bride changed 4x, 3X (most common) and 2X.  The craziest I’ve ever heard was 7X (I think that’s nuts.) 

    Some people do have reception or cut the cake dresses.

    @shaina0707:  I guess I couldn’t even justify that much! 😛 That was as much as our DJ!

    @shaina0707:  WOW both are stunning! I think they may be too similar to really value having two “looks” at the wedding though. Number one is classic elegance and two is beautiful and really unique! I would say choose one but only you know what will work best for you!

    @shaina0707:  with those two dresses, I would only pick one. They are too similar, some people (who are less observant) may not even notice that you changed.
