I’m just sticking to the one dress.

I’m having just one dress because I can’t imagine wanting to take it off until the very end of the night when I have to.  However, I can understand your concern about sparklers.  Maybe ask other brides who had sparklers if there were any burns or problems 🙂

Just one. I (hopefully) only get to wear a wedding dress once in my life and I want to wear it for as long as possible that day 🙂

I never thought I’d have 2 dresses, but it turns out I will, though we are doing something that is not typical- I have my wedding dress for our ceremony and reception, and another dress that I’m wearing for the rehearsal dinner and then religious ceremony (about a week after our wedding). We’re only doing the religious ceremony for our moms, and it doesn’t really mean that much to us, so I didn’t want to rewear my special wedding dress for it.

I only have one dress for both the ceremony and reception, but we are also throwing an after-party, where I will wear a cute short white dress! Not technically a second wedding dress, but a second dress for the night.

I definitely want to wear my dress for the whole night, but I think that in your scenario, I would just have a “going-away dress” to change into right before the sparkler exit.

@csvinson: I wore just one dress and had a sparkler exit. There were no burn marks on my dress, but I understand why you would want a second dress for the exit.

This is why I wanted to find a wedding dress w/ a removeable skirt!  I have thought about 2 dresses..but with our tight budget..it wouldn’t work.

One dress. I love my wedding dress and think it’d be silly not to wear it for as long as possible.

I thought I would never want one – but Fiance and I are thinking of doing a slow swing dance for our first dance (jazz lovers!) and my floor length gown might be a bit much for that…

@csvinson: I am wanting a second dress only because I am in love with two styles. the second dress of course would cost much less then my ceremony dress. I have learned you can purchase prom dresses in ivory and it looks no different then a wedding gown and much cheaper!

Jonvi has really nice dresses in the prom category that look like wedding dresses. (form fitting)

I’m having two dresses! I absolutely love both of my dresses! My ceremony dress is traditional and beautiful! My reception dress is more fitting and whimsical! I’m really glad that I had the option to do both, so I totally understand ya!

I wore 2 dresses, but my second dress was a cultural dress since I’m West African.
