Hi Bees!! I have my dress which is a ball gown with lots of crystals everywhere. I am going to wear it for the ceremony for sure, but I keep thinking that I want to buy another dress for the ceremony. I know because my dress for the ceremony is like princess so for the reception it can be more simple and comfortable so I can dance and stuff.
I didn’t spend a lot of money for my ceremony dress, so I can still buy another dress, it’s not going to be crazy expensive, thinking less than $300 for the second dress. But I keep seeing another ball gown lol…………… Am I crazy?? OMG. I want to have two ball gowns and have it for ceremony and another one for the reception.
Any of you had two different wedding dresses for your wedding day? Could you show me the picture of the dresses please? Is it crazy to have two dresses????????????
I will upload my ceremony dress and dresses that I’m thinking about to buy for my reception. Thanks. This is my ceremony dress…
Here is the another ball gown that I want to change into at the reception:

Ah, also I am going to order the second dress from online website, knock-off, has anyone had an experience ordering from online and how it went??

One dress for me but I think if you want to change into another dress, go for it! I would recommend something different from a ballgown though. Something sexier or more modern / playful. Something that highlights another side of your personality.

@SunnieChoi: I am considering changing for maybe the last two hours – I just looked at the website from the pics you posted – do you know the name/designer of the first bridesease pic you posted, I can’t find it…love it!

@Pand0ra: I agree with this and second it! My dress is very structured (not a ball gown since I’m petite and they look stupid on me!) and lace with a beaded belt. If I change, I would change into something light (and much, much cheaper than the 1st dress). Still don’t know what to do!!!
If you change, you should change into something completely different, that’s just my opinion – BUT it’s your day so you get to do what you want!

I’m glad i found someone with my same thot, i have two dresses, 1 for my ceremony and another for my reception. My reception dress was actually my main wedding dress and shelled out a lot for it, but when i stumbled on the drop waist ball gown, i knew i had to have it…..shame it was 2k over my budget so my Maid/Matron of Honor suggested i try a rep website, and i wouldnt hv anything to lose. TURNS out when i received, i LOVVVED it even more than my first dress. so now my rep dress is my ceremony dress, see ballgown in pic, and my original dress which is the mermaid is now my reception dress which has a lot of bling and sparkles. Works grrrrrrreat!
So OFCOS i say DO IT!

I changed… but my 2nd dress was non-traditional and a party dress……Here are pics of my gown and my reception dress. I changed into my 2nd dress the last hour of the reception.

I had 2 wedding dresses. My first one was way to heavy and big for me to wear comfortably the whole night. I changed into a sheath gown after the toasts. It felt wonderful to wear something airy and light. It was MUCH easier to dance in a sheath gown than a 10 pound (yes, I weighed it) gown.
Here are both of my gowns.

If you have the money and want to spend it on another dress so that you are comfortable go for it. I’m going to be having two dresses, but only because my dress was originally for a spring wedding. Once we changed the date to August I realized that my dress will be much too hot to wear all day outside. I’m going to make a tea length gown with a little help. I’m going to try and wear the original dress for as long as I can during the reception before needing to change. I’m hoping to wear it at least for the first dance, cake cutting, etc.

I’m thinking of wearing two ball gown wedding dresses…but the trouble is, they are different colours . ceremony one is pure white. reception is cream/ivory. would i need to have a change in accessories and stuff too?
they are essentially the same style. both corset bodice, ceremony dress has pick ups and lace hem, reception dress has 3 tiers (belle 217)..
