@Marquise123: Another multiple-dress bride here. May I ask where the lace qipao is from? I’ve been looking for a ‘modern’ variation on the qipao, was thinking of not doing it altogether but I wouldn’t mind if it wasn’t super-traditional. I love lace too.
Now, I adore that Vera Wang gown. I was considering it at one stage but realised I wanted more structure. It is still stunning though, so 1930s Hollywood glamour. I think it’s the perfect going-away dress.
I think as long as it’s not breaking the budget, and you love all your dresses, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go for it. My mum reckons at least four outfit changes are required for a Chinese wedding, haha. The Vera Wang I wanted was $10K new (my parents wanted to pay for it) but I decided to go the preowned/sample route and ended up getting four designer dresses (including the Vera) for under that price. If you can be a savvy shopper and still come under budget, then all power to you!

You’re not crazy haha. However, I like the first two dresses sooooo much more than the third, so personally I wouldn’t go for it. I also don’t think it’s necessary to take the time to change that many times, ya know?

What will you be doing with the train for each dress? I think most women bustle their dresses for the reception, but I think the red dress would lose a lot if it was bustled. But it definately doesn’t make sense to switch from unbustled to bustled and I presume you don’t want to walk around your reception with everyone tripping over your train? Same question for the last dress.
Personally, I like the red dress best, so I would probably just wear it. But I can understand wanting a traditional white gown as well. But two white gowns and a red dress?? Maybe a little crazy (you did ask). But at the end of the day, if it’s what you want go for it. It’s not like it’s actively bad (other than cost and time to change dresses) just unnnecessary complication. But they are all lovely dresses. So if that’s what you want, go for it!

@Marquise123: I absolutely love the qipao and was wondering where you bought it from

I think all the dresses are gorgeous, but in my opinion 3 dress changes is a bit over the top.

It does seem like overkill. Especially if you are putting the first dress back on for the reception. That’s 4 dress changes in one night – I’m exhausted just thinking about it.
If you want to do 3 dresses I’d recommend 1) ceremony, 2) cocktail / reception and 3) a shorter, flirtier dress for the end of the reception.

I haven’t decided if I will or if I wont. While I don’t believe in good luck some of the culturies I’m really into believe that wearing multiple dresses for your wedding is good luck. I know some don’t like it but it doesn’t bother me either or. I think all of your dresses look great and I especially love your 2nd one.

@august_bride2bee: Was wondering the same and found it on cozyladywear.com. I think it’s just under $300.

@Marquise123: woah three dresses?? if that’s what you want to do and be comfortable changing in and out all day and night long then all the best to you. I personally wouldn’t want to be taking my big and beautiful wedding gown off alllll night – it’s the only time ill be getting to wear something like that!
