(Closed) I'm getting out of control! 3 dresses?!?

  • poll: How many dresses can I get before I have officially gone off the deep end?

    One dress. Narrow it down and get over yourself.

    Two dresses: You don't need a flippin' cocktail dress!

    Two dresses: Get rid of your reception dress, and get a cocktail one instead

    Three dresses: It's your wedding, do whatever you want.

    Heck, why not just get 4! Keep an even number, right?

    Just go nekkid!

    You can do what you want on your wedding day, but remember each outfit change is time away from the party! I had two dresses for my day and that worked really well. One for most of the day, which was a big heavy ball gown and then a shorter one for dancing later.

    I say have one dress for the ceremony/reception and then a cocktail dress for the after party. I think having three dresses is a little much (ironically, this is coming from someone who will be a Pakistani bride with three different wedding dresses over a span of three days… but I swear it’s cultural and all three events are three different things! Haha!).

    Another multiple-dress bride here, so no judgement! If I were you, I’d do that gorgeous full-skirted gown for your ceremony (so beautiful, by the way) and rock the mermaid for the reception. Because none of the cocktail-length dresses are wowing me, and honestly, you could wear a little white dress any time, right? I suppose you could always have a short dress on back-up and play it by ear – see how comfortable you feel partying in the mermaid first.

    How does it not look bridal ?? It does ! Though I think three dresses is a little over the top I think the dress you have & a short one for the after party. Otherwise what is the point of getting a dress so cheap?

    Assuming you wear the mermaid as your reception dress, you might not have any choice but get another dress if you want to dance – unless you get the ballgown bustled and put it back on. Mermaids are lousy for dancing in. 

    I’m not realy feeling the love with any of the short dresses you posted but you’ve got plenty of options. You could even branch out into silver or gold or more obviously cocktail dresses, and then your options are basically endless.

    I think two dresses is probably enough 🙂 Anyway, don’t you think partying at a hotel in your wedding dress could be kind of awesome?? Our venue boots us out at midnight so we’re likely also going to have some sort of after party thing, and I’m kind of looking forward to all the stares when I show up at the bar in my gown 😀

    I pick my poll answer cause it made me laugh…

    Honest answer, I think you should get rid of the mermaid and get a cocktail dress. Mermaids are not good for partying and I LOVE the dress you are getting for the ceremony. I would wear the ceremony dress for the ceremony and part of the reception, then change into a cocktail dress for dancing.

    some women who fall in love with multiple dresses wear one to the rehearsal dinner, if that is a more formal event. i adore the second one, so how about mermaid for rehearsal dinner, ballgown one for ceremony and reception, and short one for after-party?
