Most people I know stay in the same dress for ceremony & reception. I’ve only seen one bride change, and she changed into a completely new dress. I think the dress you posted is very pretty, but I’ve never heard of Cobb Prom.

I’m doing something similar to what you posted. I purchased a dress and an overskirt. I’ll be removing the train from the dress (I think…it kinda breaks my heart because it’s beautiful!) and wearing the overskirt for the ceremony. I’ll remove the overskirt after the ceremony and wear the sleeker dress to the reception. Pics below! (nothing has been altered yet, so excuse the poor fit!).

I think that looks great! I’ve seen some really nice ones! Some examples are Hayley Paige’s Conrad, and also the ones below. I love the idea and would go for one but I couldn’t find any that has both styles that I like.

No idea about that company, and I’ve never seen a bride IRL change, but I think that dress in both its iterations is lovely. 🙂

 The ad you posted looks photoshopped.  It looks like they put a different girl’s head on the body.  A few replica sites do this to get around copyright laws. If you looked long enough you would probably find that same dress on some designer website.  I personally would be hesitant ordereing from this site.

I don’t quite understand the idea of changing out of one’s beautiful,   beloved,  probably very exopensive once- in-a -lifetime  – hopefully! – wedding gown into a ‘reception’ dress. I dont even understand  modifying its bridal features  (Sorry flip_flop :  but I do hope you don’t mutilate  that lovely gown !)

I can see they might  be a bit more comfortable  or easy to dance  in or somethiang  , but hey, its your wedding dress, it deserves the longest   airplay you can give it! What’s a bit of discomfort or ease of dancing to that !

harmonicsoul :  Thats a very pretty evening /prom dress converting  to a cocktail dress in your pic. I guess in white it would  look much more bridal . Sorry I don’t know  the firm.

elderbee :  lolz having the train removed isn’t “mutilating” anything, but okay.

elderbee :  as a dress is a non-conscious object, it doesn’t “deserve” anything. It’s a dress. Period. 

That said, I agree that I want to wear my dress all night – it would be super sad to wear it for only like 20 mins and then change into something else. But it would also be super sad not to be able to dance at my wedding, so I made sure to get a dress I could dance in!

if you wanna change, go for it. You do you and all that. But I’ve never been a fan of the short reception dresses. The only appeal it has to me is actually the idea of wearing it still AFTER the wedding. I wouldn’t take off the overskirt for the reception, but I’d be excited to wear the short dress again aftetlrwards!

flip_flop :  that’s a fabulous idea, I kind of want to do the same but not sure if I can find the right overskirt
