    No. Hopefully you only get married once so why not wear the dress as long as you can? Plus, if you know you’re going to be wearing it for hours on end (and not changing into something else), then find a dress you love that is lightweight and easy to maneuever in because they do exist, and you can get one custom made inexpensively if you can’t find one otherwise.

    Countless women only wear one dress. The only time (apart from the recent trend of reception dresses introduced by the wedding industry to get you to spend more money that you don’t have) that you hear of multiple dress changes in real life is with Asian brides. Even then, they spend so much time changing in and out of clothes that they say they miss a large portion of the wedding. The women who only wear one dress choose to do mainly because it is the only time in their lives they will be able to wear such a dress and want to keep it on as long as possible, which does not include changing into a second reception dress. Money is also a valid reason as to why they are unheard of. Wedding dresses alone are very expensive for the amount of time you will be wearing one, and by wearing a reception dress in addition, you knock that time (that you will be wearing your $500+ ceremony dress) down to an hour max, which most women cannot justify doing.

    yup…. but only because the gown is long and it’ll be an outside wedding/reception.  I’ll be changing into a more fantasy-ish gown after the cake-cutting and stuff.  Get the wedding stuff out of the way, then it’s gonna be a PARTY!!!!  lol.  besides, I’ll have my two kids there and I want to be able to run around and play with ’em and not worry about ruining the wedding gown. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hah, for me it was less about all that and more about the fact that it was darn hard enough to find and afford one dress, let alone another!

    Yes, because due to indecision and problems finding the perfect one, I ended up with multiple dresses anyways. Since I’d already bought them and didn’t necessarily love one more than the others, I figured why not wear two of them?

    One is enough for me, but I can understand why someone would want a second dress…especially in culturals where there are different ceremonies with varying dresses/attire
