One could be for the ceremony and one for the reception. If you’re going on a honeymoon, maybe use the short one for a fancy dinner. They’re both beautiful.

MissSangria:  nope I won’t buy 2 wedding dresses. In your case you can wear the long one for the ceremony and some pictures and at the reception change into the short dress.

MissSangria:  Oh the short dress is so cute! I love how romantic it looks. It’s beautiful.

Will you be wearin both dresses on your wedding day? Or can you not change dresses that day and are trying to decide on just 1? Maybe use the short dress for rehearsal? It would be a shame to just have to choose between just 1.

I might wear 2 dresses. I found a simple, elegant Aline ivory dress for $131 and bought it. I really wanted a blush pink gown but my fiancé is traditional and was unhappy. I settled for the ivory. Now I’m thinking I will buy the gown that makes me happy and wear ‘his’ gown for the ceremony but mine for everything else……although if I can’t find a used blush gown I’ll wear the ivory one. It is really pretty.


i think both your dresses are beautiful! I’d wear the long one for the ceremony/pictures but the short one is a great dress to wear the next day, at the dance/reception or if your having any night before parties that works too!

I have to be honest. I don’t understand why you would buy a 2nd dress a month before the wedding when you only plan to wear one. I wore two, but I bought them both in advance, and I knew I was going to wear 2 all along. 

Since you plan to wear one, then perhaps you should wear the one you love the most at the wedding. This way you will have a bunch of nice pictures in the dress, unless you will have a photographer for both events. Then you can wear the second one for the party.

Definitely find a way to wear both! I like long for the wedding because it is more formal, and then the short one for the party.
