    @soonmrswhite:  I’ll give you my honest opinion: I don’t like this idea for two reasons.

    1) I am totally against “second” reception dresses anyway. I think you only get married one time, and you should wear a fabulous enormous wonderful ball gown ALL NIGHT LONG. You can wear a short flirty sexy dress any other time, but you only get to wear your wedding dress once. You can bet I want to savor every second in mine. I don’t care if it is hot or poofy or gets dirty, I’ll never wear it again, and I’d rather be hot and poofy than wearing some forgettable white dress.

     

    2) I think 2 in 1 dresses seem kind of gimmicky and cheap. Like Las Vegas-esque or something. 

     

    This is just my personal view on the matter, and obviously its your wedding so you should do whatever. I was just a MOH in my friends wedding and she changed out of her fabulous silk mermaid dress with beading into a white cocktail dress that looked like it came out of a Miami nightclub. Blech. She was in her wedding dress for less than an hour. It was sad to me.

    @soonmrswhite:  Love the idea. Maybe the belt should just go with the tulle skirt, and the belt can be how the skirt is put on and off. 

    I dodn’t think it would be difficult for a professional to make this, also tulle isn’t so expensive so the extra skirt shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Will you be getting the whole dress made or just the extra skirt?

     

    I TOO had a 2-in-1 dress…but a bit different concept….I will post pics (easier then explaining). As you can see below, I had a formal part of the dress..then I wanted to party…

    @soonmrswhite:  First impression: Drag queen show girls ripping off the dress to reveal something sexy underneath. I think it is a cheap thing to do to an expensive dress.

    The only thing I can think about is how uncomfortable that must be when you’re wearing two weddding dress skirts at once… It wouldn’t be worth it for me.

    @soonmrswhite:  I think this is actually a really cool idea and both dresses are beautiful but I think you should try on these dresses or similar in person first and seriously that second dress is absolutely stunning so who knows maybe you will end up just loving one! (But overall yes I think this is a good idea!)

    @soonmrswhite:  I actually think majority of the guests won’t even notice it is the same dress but with a different skirt. And if they are anything like my father, some won’t notice a difference at all.
