Yes I want to do that too
Yes I want to do that too
Yup! But only because I ordered two relatively inexpensive dresses from Jasmine’s Bridal Shop with the impression that I was going to sell the other if I didn’t like it, and surprise! I ended up loving them both.
They need some alterations, but shoot, I’ve already got both dresses in hand, may as well make use of them.
I didn’t think I would be one to have 2 dresses…but I am. I have certain reasons why though.
I’m not high maintenance by any means and I don’t believe many brides are who choose to have 2 dresses. I can see people assuming the girl is high maintenance if each dress costs a fortune. But there are much ways of getting cheaper 2nd dresses and if it is within your budget, and your heart is set on it, then why not…it’s your day! The main point is that you feel beautiful and fabulous on your big day whether it be 2 dresses or 1. One dress is just as fabulous, it all narrows down to the bride and what she wants or what will make her feel great. For some brides that is by only having a ceremony dress and with other brides it’s with having 2 dresses. Just my thoughts. 🙂
I seriously considered two dresses, one formal and one that would be easier to dance in. After finding “the one” I changed my mind. It is a beautiful gown that I get to wear for one day, why would I want to change it?! I’ll be living it up in that dress!
Personally I think it makes you seem high maintenance to have 2 dresses. It’s only a few hours pick out one you love and go with it. I am a little concerned that mine is a ball gown and it will be hot in the middle of July but its only a few hours and it makes me feel beautiful and I can’t imagine spending more money on a second dress even if it was in my budget.
nope. i refuse to. weddings are so expensive already. why just throw away money on a second dress?
Yes! I’m wearing a tulle ballgown with lace for our outdoor ceremony and then changing into a satin pleated fit and flare for our indoor reception. I feel like our venue goes from elegant to glam so my dresses are following that trend as well. Plus, I got dress #1 65% off and dress #2 for $200!
I figured I only get to wear a wedding dress one time in my life, I might as well not compromise on what I want – this way I get the best of both worlds!
I stayed in my gown the whole night!
Notes: Dancing was a bit difficult, but I just picked it up and kept on dancing! The dress also survived the after party at the pub down the street, so I wore it for about 13 hours total.
Note: I had it bustled during the reception, and it was a very full skirt, so I still felt the need to hold it to keep it from swinging all over everyone!
I originally was going to wear one dress but then we decided to take a limo from the venue down to a hotel where our cruise will be leaving the next day and I didn’t want to take my gown on the cruise with me so I found a short lace dress to wear when we leave. If I do get hot during the reception I might change but I don’t plan on it.
I am wearing two dresses. I recently bought my second dress partly because I wanted something simple, light, comfy to dance with. the other part due to some dress regret.
