I’m not wearing two dress, but I wouldn’t think that someone is vain because they wanted to wear two.

I am wearing 2 dresses. I don’t think it is vain. I think it is your day and you can do whatever you want!

I meant dresses, not dress.

I wore two dresses. Some guests didn’t even notice that I changed 🙂 They only saw me for 20 min in the ceremony for the first dress , mostly covered by a mantilla veil, so they couldn’t really tell the switcheroo.

Haha, you’re the bride, whatever you want goes…And it does make sense that you would want them to notice since you’re spending all that money. But how are you going to change midway through the ceremony? 🙂

My situation was a little different, I didn’t really want two dresses. I wanted one perfect dress but couldn’t find it…And somehow ended up purchasing three. I took all of them to my venue because I couldn’t decide till the last day. The day before, when I showed them to my family my mom loved #1 the most and my brother loved #2. I loved #3 but the champagne color didn’t match anything else in my wedding. So I ended up wearing #1 for the ceremony (had the long train, had the bling and the wow factor, matched my veil) and #2 for reception (lighter and more comfortable, fuller skirt that twirled when I danced, had a little too much cleavage that would’ve been inappropriate for ceremony). But to most of my guests they were both just long white strapless dresses.

I’m a 1.5 dress bride… I bought a dress with a big pickup style ballgown skirt, and a corset top that I fell in love with, but I knew I couldn’t wear the big skirt all night, so I had the seamstress attach the ballgown skirt with hook&eyes and after the ceremony I’ll remove it and put on a simpler knee length skirt.

I doubt anyone will think you’re vain for doing two dresses. You’re switching into something more comfortable which will allow you to have more fun with your guests- how can that be a bad thing if you can afford it and it makes you happy?

i am wearing 2. the first is heavily embellished and fancier, more traditional dress. i’m wearing it for ceremony, first dance, father/daughter….then i’m going to go change into my more party, flowing, fun dress. we’re timing it so i will reappear rightbefore we cut the cake so that the focus will be back on us and people can see my fab party dress. i’m so excited!!!!!!!!! my first dress gets heavy and my 2nd is so fun!

I did! Two dresses by the same designer. A champagne-colored dress for the ceremony and a pale lavendar for the reception. Since this was not my first wedding, I was not worried about appearring all that bridal.

I’m going to be wearing two dresses, also.  The first is a bridal gown dressed up with an underbust corset and jewelry with my hair done in half-up/half-down ‘do.  The second is more fantasy/medieval. 

I’ll have the bridal portraits done in both to appease the more traditional family members and also to make ME and my Fiance happy.  The kids, however, are going to be wearing costumes and so is my Fiance and the wedding party.  and hopefully a lot of the guests, too!!!  (I know of at least one cousin who’s already happy to have an excuse to wear his boots and samari sword. :D)

I think it’s perfectly fine and that if you want to do it, go for it!!!  If the guests notice or not is up to you.  Also, take in your comfort factor; you want to be comfortable and able to dance and walk around without tripping! LOL!  (one reason for the change of dress for me…)
