    Girls, we’re sending mixed messages here and probably confusing BeesGees even more πŸ™‚ Pretty much all the posts say “go for it!” but the poll is 62% in favor of “two is too much” ?!

    I posts sometimes in the poll but then never comment.. πŸ˜› personally… if you have two dresses, wear two dresses.

    I love your first one tho.. its so pretty!

    I voted “two is too much” simply because they’re so similar, I agree with pp who said a lot of guests probably won’t notice you changed.  Nothing wrong with switching into a reception dress, but if I was going to spend the money on two dresses I’d want them to be fairly different so the change would be more noticeable.  Any chance you could sell one now?  Might get more $ as “never been worn.”

    They’re very similar dresses, so I voted two is too much. Usually brides have a formal dress at the ceremony and a more relaxed style for the reception. With my budget, I’ll buy my dream dress and wear it the whole time!

    I think it’s too much…some of my extended family members have been put into a little bit of a squeeze financially due to the economy; and I would just worry that a move like that would be a little showy for these times. That’s just me though, I could be way off πŸ™‚

    My BFF got married 2 years ago and she was ALSO a 2-dress bride. She was IN LOVE with the first dress (which she bought first) and the 2nd dress was kindof an afterthought. She ended up only wearing her 2nd dress for a few minutes at the reception before changing BACK into her 1st dress. She was much more comfortable in the 1st dress and wanted to wear it as much as possible during that day. Just some insight. πŸ™‚

    I would pick your fav and just wear that one because they are so similar πŸ™‚

    I had a bride intend to do something similar as well…. but she stayed in her full ballgown the entire night, even though the bustle broke!

    Do you have to alter both? If one was really simple I prob. would have voted go for it, but… in these times… Honestly, both are very gorgeous and extravagant, I would be a bit taken back however….

    Agree with Jacqi.  I’m not getting where you are seeing 2 different styles and silhouettes?  The bodice of both dresses looks exactly the same to me.  I would choose the one I liked the best and go with it.  If you can’t choose from that then choose the most comfortable.  They aren’t different enough to warrant buying both.

    If you can afford it go for it.  But I’ve gotta admit they are kind of similar on the top.  Ad for the poll, not eveyone comments, some just vote which may be why the comments and percentages are off.

    Yeah, I think if one was shorter or less formal it might work.  With them being so similar I would say pick your favorite, sell the other one.

    Just my two cents, though.
