I am definitely the type to have two dresses (I’m very into fashion- how can I choose just one??), but in the end I decided to do just one. I spent ages (I’d say well over 100 hours) hand-sewing lace and customizing my dress to be unique, and my very own, since I didn’t have the budget for couture. I ended up spending about $600 (About $300 on a pretty basic dress from the internet, and another $300 in antique lace), but I think my dress looks more like $2,000 (or so I hope). I would post a photo, but the only picture of me in it after it’s done is on my mom’s camera, and the dress has been packed into a space bag for the journey to Italy. 

I wasn’t 100% satisfied with it until the very last day- my friend (who hasn’t seen the dress) suggested a ribbon around my waist. I tried it, and now I’m totally in love. What a smart cookie!

I am! Here’s my ceremony dress and my reception dress (bad lighting). I paid $500 for both of them combined!

Nissipatra: 

I went with two different silhouettes because I love the ball gown look, but I did want to have something fitted as well.

If you go with the 2 mermaid dresses, I would suggest having them look completely different. Like one all lace and the other all satin with bling or possibly a different color. Otherwise I don’t think people would notice the change.
