Has anyone had three dresses on their wedding?
Yes it sounds like I,m such a diva but this is what happened.
I didnt end up liking the original wedding dress I purchased for many different reasons. When I tried to call in and ask for an exchange, the botique told me I just cannot do that. So I resorted on just getting a reception dress custom-made hoping it would satisfy me. Until today, I finally saw “THE dress”. So I asked the lady who will be making my reception dress, if she can change the design (They have not started on the dress yet) But so far, she told me she doesnt do beading work which is what makes this dress that I fell in love with completely. So she’s telling me she can do something like it with a different fabrics.
I am afraid that because this dress that I fell in love with looks a little more complicated than the reception dress that it would end up something I hate again once it is made. SO I was thinking to get it done where they specialize in wedding or special occasion dresses to avoid being dissapointed again.
Then so that I wont feel like I wasted money. I’ll just wear all of them and be done with it.

I think there’s a few of us with multiple dresses, mostly for cultural traditions. At Chinese weddings it’s common (even expected) for brides to have three to four outfit changes. I’m just going to do two dresses, maybe a third reception dress to dance the night away in. But yes – in the process of dress shopping, I’ve ended up with four gowns.
Why don’t you just buy your dream dress? Or is out completely out of your budget? I’m just concerned that if you get it made, you might end up disappointed if it doesn’t quite turn out as you hope. Have you considered using Jasmine’s Bridal Shop? They seem to do good things with beading.

Keep in mind that alterations can add up with multiple dresses!
I know a girl who ended up buying 2 full-length white wedding dresses, one for the ceremony, one for the reception. I had never heard of THAT before. It’s funny because I don’t think she realizes that the alterations for both dresses are going to cost a pretty penny, and she was trying to have a budget wedding. I think it’s common for a lot of brides to change into something else during the reception, perhaps something more sleek and comfortable so that they can dance.
