My Grandmother and mum wore two dresses and I will be doing the same. My mum will be making my ceremony dress and I have just bought a second-hand dress to wear for the reception.

In all honesty, I am quite a sweaty person and the last thing I want at my reception is to be stuck in my heavy ceremony dress looking like sweaty betty!

I didn’t because my evening guests really wanted to see my wedding outfit (they knew it wasn’t going to be conventional) and some of theme also came in steampunk costume.

However, I have several friends who did get two dresses and several more who wished they had because they were uncomfortable after a long day in a heavy dress.

Never seen a two dress bride myself, and I wont be changing, too much time away from the party…..plus, I love my big elaborate dress, its the only time I get to wear it so I’m wearing it all day.

But I can see the attraction, I keep seeing great dresses hugely formal and less formal, and feel sad I have to choose just one.

If you want to change, have time and space to do it and can affort it. Go for it.

If you decide not to change…..then have a big old first anniversary party and wear your second evening reception dress to that.
