Bees, What are your thoughts on 2 in 1 dresses? I’ve seen a few that I really love but i’m not 100% sold on the idea. It seems like all the shorter lengths are VERY short! i’d love to hear your thoughts!

You mean the long wedding dresses that you take the skirt off and then it’s a cocktail style dress?
I like them but do wish the cocktail dress were a bit longer … maybe knee length. Not everyone has a pair of beautiful glam legs to show off in a mini-skirt…

I like the idea of it but I didn’t get one. I love my dress and I plan on it wearing it as long as possible, lol.

@magnoliafine: Some are really gorgeous/cute like this:
It depends on ur budget, your taste, if you want a ‘different ‘ dress for ur ceremony/reception without a big sum/extra dress. Uou may not want to buy a 2 in 1 and realise you wish you had enuff *dancing* freedom in a dress.lol..

I love the idea of them, but I’m with you – the short version of the dresses, I don’t usually love as much.

Not a huge fan. I am spending enough for the dress I am in.. I want to feel like I am wearing a wedding dress for the whole time! I’ve never liked the idea of changing or having two different looks. Plus I feel like it would feel weird to have the shorter skirt underneath, like I could feel the hem.

@ Mz Izzie:
oh Wow! i totally adore that lace one! where did you find those?
@pengoala: the idea that you could dance the night away in a 5 pound dress is much more appealing to me that sweating my rear off. lol

I think they’re a great alternative for people with smaller budgets who want two looks. I’m personally fine with one dress for the whole day. But for those who wants two looks, this is a great way to get that!

I saw one on SYTD that went from ball gown to mermaid… that was beautiful! I don’t really like the dresses that turn into cocktail dresses, though.

I’m not a fan of them. I am completely happy wearing my one dress all day. I think the idea of them is great. I think the examples above are beautiful and if you like them go for it!

I was JUST thinking that this would be the only way I would have liked one. I haven’t seen one that does that, but I think that’s a great idea!

I haven’t found one where I like the shorter dress.
