I think that is fairly common… Either switch out a heavy ball gown or a form fitting dress for one that is easier to move in.

I agree that it is fairly common. I personally wouldn’t do it, but if you want to you should feel free to do it!

I think its fine, its your wedding, wear as many as you like haha! My best friend has a ball gown, then has just purchased another dress to wear the reception that is form fitting and she can relax more in / dance! Both are wedding styles and I think i would be tempted to do the same should I pick a big dress.

kisa15:  So, I actually did this, and would say do it, with some caveats.

Caveats: Changing WILL take a minimum of 45 minutes out of your day, and probably more like an hour. You will need to find a room to change, get to that room, redo your hair and maybe makeup, deal with your accessories and undergarments, find somewhere to safely store your other dress, then get back to the venue. This WILL take time away from your reception, guests and photography time on a day that is already super busy. Just keep that in mind. As much fun as two dresses was, I do somewhat regret that lost time when we could have been taking more pictures or chilling out with guests.

I just love your ballgown and I can’t believe it would be heavy to dance  in at all. The scond one is rather lingerie/nightgown adjacent to me and I can ‘t quite see  how  it would   be all that easy to dance in, so tight as it is … but then  I’m  just some  random stranger,  lol
