I may be becoming a two dress bride and am wondering how common it is for brides to get a second dress due to regret or some other reason. I personally wanted something unique to me and me alone so I had my dress made from parts of 4 other dresses. Then I found another that just screams unique, more so than my first (to me anyway).
So how many of you are two dress brides and why did you become a two dress bride?

ME!!! I was a 2 dress bride. I ordered what I thought was my ‘dream’ dress last year, in August. In February of this year, my ‘dream’ dress arrived and. I. hated. it. It didn’t give me the same feeling it did when I ordered it last year. I ended up falling in love with another dress, and had to buy the floor sample because a brand new one wouldn’t have arrived for my June wedding. I loved my 2nd dress and couldn’t have been happier with the last minute change I made (other than the fact that I lost $, because I had to pay for the 1st dress).

I guess I’m like a 1.5 dress bride? I am having a simple, family only, civil ceremony at city hall on a wednesday and I got a short dress for that. Then I got my “real” wedding dress for the reception/chinese banquet (and pictures!) on the following saturday.

I’m a 2 dress bride, but I haven’t decided where/when I’m wearing my 2nd dress. I picked out my gown with the intention of only wearing that one for the entire day. And then I won a second custom made gown, completely made from scratch. I’m having a 50’s cocktail style dress made so I can wear it at the reception, the after party, or perhaps even the rehearsal dinner. I’ll decide when it’s finished 🙂

I’m a two dress bride because of dress regret. The very first time I went shopping I got talked into buying a dress and I regretted it immediately. I tried to cancel but the salon wouldn’t let me, so I figured I would just wait it out and hope that my dress regret went away. It never went away. It just got worse. I would think about wearing it and just get depressed that I didn’t love my dress. Finally I decided to try on other dresses, and sure enough found one that I LOVED. I got it, and I love it, and I’m so happy I did. I am a little embarrassed that I fell into the two dress bride cliche, and that I wasted so much money, but I’m so much happier that I have a dress I love.

I’m a one and a half or two and half dress bride. One and a half on our big wedding day (one bodice with two different skirts) and one for our beach vow renewal in Thailand.

I’m a two dress bride. I had a china replica made of a Private Label by G .
It turned out gorgeous but just not for my day.
So then I went and bought the MoriLee 1612 and I LOVE it!! 🙂

Oh gee, I’ll most likely be a 2 dress bride too! We were initially getting married this year, but things fell thru w/ the church. I purchased a dress w/ lace last year thinking I was getting married in a CA mission. We had everything booked (so we thought), but there were issues w/ the basilica. The beaded dress is fitted w/ a dropped waist ruffle/lace tulle skirt. It’s been sitting in my closet for months.
Now we’re getting married next year down in SoCal in a cute tiny church (so far everything for sure w/ the church & reception site). The other dress would be nice in a large basilica, but I can’t picture it for this place. I try it on & get sad that it’s not what I want. I tried on flowy ruffled gowns last year and loved the skirts, but I couldn’t find one that had all the things I wanted in my budget, i.e. sweetheart neckline, ruflles, a little bling. A month ago I found a dress online that I fell in love w/ instantly. I went today hoping I would hate it… but I LOVE it! I was sad & happy when I tried it on. Don’t know how to tell my mom… Fiance is all for it though. I have a lot of time still to think it over.
I’ll try to sell the other dress. Or maybe I’ll use it for TTD photos. Who knows…
